Five years after opening its doors Fired Up Grill is getting a makeover that the owners say is more reflective of the food and atmosphere in the restaurant.

“What was here was nice but we wanted something cooler with more of a hip vibe to it,” said Joe Busone, co-owner of Fired Up Grill. “Some of the décor that was here I thought intimidated people that it would be too expensive. We drove by and said ‘It looks high-end from the outside.’ We wanted to bring more of a hip vibe with an industrial look.”

The owners have redone the bar, reupholstered the booths, painted everything and added new shade screens to the porch that help keep it just as cool outside as it is inside — even during the hot summer months.

The owners just signed their second five-year lease in the space in the Shoppes at Casa Paloma off Ray Road in Chandler.

Fired Up is also in the process of revamping the menu. Busone said with the creativity of himself and his executive chef, Bobby Garcia, the menu changes constantly.

“I think that’s what has kept us around so long,” Busone said. “We’re constantly changing the menu. The menu we have today is not the menu we had six months ago, let alone five years ago … I think that’s the benefit of being an independent local restaurant. We could change the entire menu tonight if we want to … The only thing you can guarantee when you come to Fired Up Grill is nothing will be the same but the staff.”

The restaurant has also recently introduced craft beer dinners. Garcia pairs a four-course meal with four different craft beers.

“Bobby is a craft beer geek,” Busone said. “I’m a wine guy. That’s why we’ve always done wine dinners, but so far we’ve tried two beer dinners and we have to cut them off. They’ve been filling up faster than the wine dinners.”

The next beer dinner is Aug. 13 and will feature Scuttlebutt Golden Mariner pale ale, Firestone Walker Opal (a dry-hopped saison), and two brews from Tenaya Creek Brewery: Hop Ride IPA and Hauling Oats Oatmeal Stout.
