“Let the fire spread from our kitchen to your heart”
By Kay Schroeder
Laguna (Perfect Meal Today) 5/27/19/–Orange County welcomes a new restaurant, the StoneFire Grill in Laguna Niguel, California. Some OC residents may recognize the address as that of a former Mimi’s Restaurant. The recent remodel of the existing building has yielded a more rustic, casual dining style restaurant and menu items. StoneFire Grill’s extensive menu has clearly and refreshingly been designed to appeal to families and large groups as well as to “couples’ night out” diners.
Perhaps it is fitting that the catalyst for StoneFire Grill (SFG) was the Harrigan family’s tribute to their mother, Mary Lou, shared memories, and foods simply and lovingly prepared. Their motto: “Let the fire spread from our kitchen to your heart”.
It all began in the summer of 2000 when the Harrigan sisters, Mary and Maureen, believed that there was a niche to be filled – design a restaurant model that would provide diners a casual atmosphere, the freshest foods, more efficient service/dining time, and great value for the customers’ money. They wanted customers to love everything about their dining experience, thus StoneFire Grill was born.
Fast forward to 2019, StoneFire Grill restaurants are now serving the following California locations:
Now that’s an impressive testimony on providing customers a comfortable, informal vibe, American food favorites (BBQ, hamburger, ribs and much more) and great value!
General Manager, Mike Macias expresses the StoneFire Grill philosophy as:
“Much more than food, StoneFire Grill is a part of the community in the truest sense. As a Company with values based in loyalty, teamwork and mutual support, each StoneFire Team, as well as the entire StoneFire Family, actively seeks opportunities to support those around them.”
Upon entering the restaurant, diners are able to go directly to the counter to be welcomed by friendly cashiers who are ready to take their order. The customer has a choice of paying the bill there, or at their table. Once seated, reorders may be done through one of the waiters. SFG offers a free membership card that allows for discounts on future visits AND on your initial visit. That’s part of their pledge to provide great value to the customer.

From the Grill
My party of three ordered from the “Snacks” menu, Chilaquiles Verdes and “From the Grill” menu, Tri Tip and Ribs (accompanied by Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Traditional Greek Salad). The ribs were moist with just the right seasonings. The tri tip was cooked to perfection with flavor to match. The Wine menu choices: Prosecco, Pinot Grigio, Rose, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Red Blend.
Two of my companions opted for the Higher Ground/Pinot Noir from Monterey County and were not disappointed.The Beer menu is comprised of: Blood Orange Wit, Pale Ale, Citraholic IPA, Orderville IPA, Apple Cider Anthem, Corona Guapo Modelo, Boston Lager Samuel Adams, and Coors Light.
My choice of Corona Guapo Modelo was very refreshing, light and proved to be the perfect accompaniment for our food choices. “Muy bien!” Consensus at our table was: We will definitely dine at StoneFire Grill again – soon. As we left the restaurant each one of us felt that the soft, smoky aroma in the air was very pleasant and added to the homey, warm, and fun atmosphere.
