Hidden Exclusive Grill Relocates City Location
After nearly four years and a change in location, the Hidden Exclusive Grill has retained its fighting spirit alongside familiar faces and famous authentic cuisine.
Jason and Lisa Frambro recently relocated their business, locally famous for its original Philly Cheesesteak ingredients, to 1000 W. Sixth St. — where the couple are soldiering on in their commitment to providing the community with quality food direct from Philadelphia itself.
The Frambros took possession of their new location on Feb. 5, after originally opening at their previous site in the former Van’s Texas Hots building on North Main Street in June 2014. Now with a larger dining and kitchen area at his disposal Jason Frambro, who is a Philadelphia native, said the move has allowed the restaurant to expand both in size and scope in regard to its menu.
“We’re still bringing our original Philly Cheesesteaks to Jamestown, and now we’ve got access to more fried items,” he said. “We’re doing Philly-style chicken fingers and chicken finger subs, which are really spectacular and go hand-in-hand with the cheesesteak. You put a little bit of blue cheese or ranch on there and you’re in heaven.”
Adorning the walls are images of Rocky Balboa and movie posters from the “Rocky” film franchise, which is based in Philadelphia. Frambro, having grown up there, said Rocky was always a childhood hero of his, and he views the character as a source of inspiration and motivation.
In addition to the Hidden Exclusive’s new menu options, Jason said they are also planning on elevating their community profile by offering lunch deals and specials to local businesses and organizations. The restaurant now accepts orders via fax, Facebook and its email address — firstname.lastname@example.org.
When the weather does turn for the better, Frambro said he plans to host a family-friendly party at the business location in which food will be cooked outdoors in the parking lot and drinks will be complimentary with every order. He plans to have balloons and games for children, as well as prizes and cash giveaways up to $100 for adults. There is no specific date set, but he hopes to hold the event in May or June.
The Hidden Exclusive Grill is open 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday. For more information call 488-0144 or find the business on Facebook.
