Located on Butler Avenue near the intersection with Bond Street adjacent to a residential area, Hooch’s Kingman Grille is the quintessential local spot. There are a lot of recognizable chain restaurants in Kingman visible right off the highway, but you have to very intentional about finding Hooch’s.
In years past we’ve endured barely-adequate meals at chain restaurants in Kingman, so this time we were determined to support a locally-owned business with some character. We found Hooch’s online and noted that they called themselves “family friendly,” so we were a little taken aback when our GPS guided to a place that looked suspiciously like a biker bar. And, the entrance led directly into the bar area, which was decorated in biker chic. But then the owner/bartender gave us a friendly “Hey folks, sit anywhere you’d like,” which encouraged us to go into the dining room where we saw not only a family but others from every walk of life enjoying lunch. Clearly, the locals knew what Hooch’s is all about.
The service was pleasant and the prices were very fair. If you’re passing through Kingman and would prefer not to take a meal in the touristy areas, Hooch’s Kingman Grille is worthy of your consideration.
