Celebrate Tequila Day with an Añejo Smash

Tequila Drink - Anejo Smash - Copper Canyon Grill - Stanford Grill - National Tequila Day

Uno, dos, tres… Tequila! This festive spirit is celebrated this Monday, July 24th. We suggest grabbing a couple of friends and starting the celebration early during our Friday happy hour.

This refreshing tequila cocktail will surely put a smile on your face. If you want to make your festivities more traditional, you can delight everyone with our Elite Margarita, too. We love having you over at the bar and preparing tasty cocktails for you and your friends, but we also love sharing our recipes for you to have a piece of us at home. But, let’s skip to the fun part… the Añejo Smash’s recipe!

Order Our Salads Without Meat!

Rotisserie Chicken Salad

Summer season is prime time to savor a refreshing and satisfying salad. Even more so when enjoyed outdoors! At Copper Canyon Grill and Stanford Grill, we pride in our great selection of tasty salads that so many people have come to love. We use only the freshest ingredients to bring together a unique combination of flavors in each of our selections.

Club Salad

No matter if you prefer the blend of black beans, corn, Monterey Jack, and avocado in our Rotisserie Chicken Salad, the mix of our homemade cornbread croutons, red onions, and smoked Gouda in the Wood Grilled Steak Salad, the fusion of mango, avocado, red onions, and wonton strips in the Seared Ahi Tuna Salad, or the combo of tomato, avocado, and smokehouse bacon in the Club Salad, there is sure to be one bowl of goodness that will speak to your taste buds.

Ahi Tuna Salad

However, we also know that not everyone wants animal protein in their salads, and that is perfectly fine. If you are a vegetarian or are just looking to lower your intake of meat, calories, or fat, you are more than welcome to order these without any meat. We are more than happy to accommodate any of your dietary needs and preferences. Just ask your server!


Looking forward to trying our selection of salads without meat during your next visit to Copper Canyon Grill or Stanford Grill? Start making plans to pay us a visit soon and make your reservations at Copper Canyon Grill here and at Stanford Grill here. See you soon!
