Rotisserie Chicken Salad:  the most interesting ingredient in this salad is the jicama, it’s a root vegetable that adds a crunchy sensation to the salad along with other delicious ingredients including corn, black beans, and tomatoes.

Steak Salad: Hearty and satisfying with all the greens you need! This salad also includes Pears! Did you know that “the majority of pears sold in the United States are grown on the west coast, mainly Oregon and Washington.”? So they’re locally sourced here! The pears add just the right amount of sweetness to the salad in addition to a crunch.

Seared Ahi Tuna Salad:  Our most colorful salad, the secret addition to this salad is the thinly sliced mangoes. It adds the perfect amount of sweetness without using any sugars. Have you ever tried tuna and mango? It takes you to the beachside in 1 bite.

Rather than meal prepping every day, treat yourself to a delicious meal! You deserve it. With that being said, the warmer weather is slowly coming in and it’s time to get out and enjoy the sun.  You can settle for a healthy or a not so healthy option:

Let’s start with THE burger. Also known as, “The Stanford” Cheeseburger. Close your eyes and imagine this: Hardwood grilled Angus beef topped with Monterey jack and cheddar cheese, bacon, lettuce, tomato, onion, bread and butter pickles, mustard and mayonnaise on a toasted sesame seed bun. You can have it all, take off the bun or even share it with a friend. The best part is, you can now have it outside on the patio.

If you are looking for a healthier option, go for our salads. Shown in the photo is our special Rotisserie Chicken Salad, with mixed greens, black beans, tomato, jicama, corn, Monterey jack, chipotle-bleu dressing, avocado, tortilla strips & BBQ sauce. How good does that sound for a ‘basic’ salad?

We also have other salad options such as our Thai Filet Noodle Salad, Steak Salad etc. You can always remove the protein to make it vegan or vegetarian.

Are you convinced to join us for lunch right now? If not, let us describe to you one of our most-loved desserts.

Still not convinced we are the perfect partners for your next event? Take a look at one of our event reviews:

“Last Friday we had a lovely anniversary party in the private room. Both the food and service were excellent. The international guests as well as the locals were very impressed…We ended up having 25 people. Seating at the round tables was roomy and the guests were able to get up and mingle around to all the tables…It was delightful working with the private event coordinator Patrick Monnig. He is creative and attentive to detail.” -summerfun297 on TripAdvisor

All of our Copper Canyon Grill and Stanford Grill locations offer private event options! Whether you’re celebrating your graduate, your company’s latest achievement, or your wedding, we are able to help craft the perfect exclusive event experience for you and your guests.

Countdown to Patio season!

The first day of spring can’t come fast enough—the season of polar vortexes, snow storms, and below-freezing temperatures seems to get longer and longer as it goes on. We’re celebrating the new season by opening the doors to our dining patios at all of our locations!

Starting March 20, the Gaithersburg, Glenarden, Silver Spring, and Orlando locations of Copper Canyon Grill now invite guests to take in their meal in the open air of our patios. Enjoy the fresh air, clear skies, blooming flowers, sprouting trees, and unfiltered sunshine of the new spring and take a real lunch break or refreshing brunch. Or have a quiet dinner surrounded by our twinkling lights and the crisp breeze of evening.

The warmer days call for a lighter palate, so now is the time to switch it up and indulge in something a fresher during the day, like our Rotisserie Chicken Salad or Fresh Fish of the Day. Our Seasonal Vegetable Platter and Veggie Burger make for great warm-weather snacks; a warm Saturday morning calls for a round of fresh Bloody Marys and Spinach & Mushroom Omelettes (and maybe a stack of Banana Nut Pancakes for the table!); while a balmy sunset calls for a pair of Cucumber Gimlets of Peartinis, ordered with a scoop of seasonal ice cream or sorbet or French Fries. It’s all served better outside!

Join us at a table outside and take in the spring air: your state of mind—and likely, your appetite!—will surely improve.

Certified green!

Gaithersburg is known for its stunning lakes and lush forests and parks, so it’s no surprise that being environmentally conscious comes through in our daily routines. So we’re proud to announce that the Green Restaurant Association has certified Copper Canyon Grill as a green restaurant!

The GRA upholds rigorous standards for environmental sustainability in terms of a business’s water efficiency, efforts to reduce waste and recycle, energy usage, and reduction in chemical pollution, among other points. Culled from the past 25 years of research, with input from over 40 independent government, environmental, and science organizations. For our dining room, that might mean that any chair or fixture made from salvaged wood is accounted for in GreenPoints; coffee filters and rechargeable batteries are used in their environmentally preferable forms; our HVAC systems and exhaust fans run on cleaner energy, more efficiently; our toaster is running at an optimal energy rate; offer at least one vegetarian entree; or reducing paper or ink cartridge usage in our offices. It’s evident in the variety of fresh fruits and vegetables we use in our kitchen for everything from indulgent cocktails on Saturday nights to crisp, refreshing salads at lunch.

We look forward to pushing our score even higher in the year ahead! We hope you’ll notice the small, everyday changes we’ll be incorporating into our meals that add up to make significant, sustainable improvements that we can all participate in. For Copper Canyon, being green goes past the leafy shrubs and blooming flowers on our patio—it goes all the way behind the bar, in the recycling bin, around our dining room, and straight through our kitchen, and onto your plate.
