Welcome to Something Different Grill Portales! Since our humble beginnings in October 1999, we've been serving up culinary delights to our beloved community. Founded by the dynamic duo Leo and Christy Vandenberg, our restaurant is the embodiment of their passion and dedication.

From crafting our unique concept to meticulously curating our menu, Leo and Christy poured their hearts and souls into every aspect of Something Different Grill. It was a labor of love to open our doors and operate this family business, but for Leo and Christy, the opportunity to provide our community with delicious, nutritious, and affordable meals made it all worthwhile.

As we continue to grow and evolve, our commitment to serving exceptional food and fostering a welcoming atmosphere remains unwavering. Join us at Something Different Grill Portales, where every meal is a testament to our founders' vision and the spirit of community they've cultivated.
