About Us

Like a professional sports draft, the Draft Pick American Grill was developed and planned carefully and strategically with overall “team” goals in mind. We identified core areas we wanted to build our franchise around, then we conceptualized, discussed, negotiated, and agreed on what our draft would accomplish:

  1. Create the ultimate venue for game viewing
  2. Provide an affordable menu loaded with homemade staples and comfort foods, and
  3. Stock a full bar with all the finest spirits and beers from around Central Texas and the world.

We have created what we feel is a restaurant and bar venue worthy of winning championships for years to come. The final piece of the puzzle to our “dream-team” is you- our customer. Without you, our success would not be possible. That’s why we work hard everyday to make your Draft Pick experience the best it can possibly be.
