The Yard started in 2014 when three mortal enemies were in the midst of an all out battle royale. Mike Allen had David Ondik in a chickenwing over-the-shoulder crossface, while Sir Nirav Patel was beating the hell out of some guy dressed up as Green Man. Green Man was talking mad shit about Pittsburgh Sports. Once David & Mike heard this brave warrior defend Pittsburgh Sports, they quickly went to assist in the full on ass kicking of Green Man. Turns out, Nirav is a Cowboys fan….
Anyways…fast forward a few days, the trio was sitting at the finest sports pub in all of Pittsburgh, (Yes, you guessed it) Coach’s Bottleshop & Grille! They were discussing starting up a restaurant specializing in grilled cheese sandwiches, but not just any grilled cheese sandwiches…gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches (hold for applause). So, they agreed on a truce to end the fighting & put all of their attention into making the finest grilled cheese sandwiches in the world. Now there are 5 Yard locations across the city serving up the coldest & best selection of craft brews, and of course, cooking up some mean gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches.
And, to all you naysayers out there who claim you can make a grilled cheese sandwich at home, we say HA! Good luck finding bread…or cheese…or butter. Then, you have to find something to heat these ingredients up & melt everything to delicious goodness….it just ain’t gonna happen bro. Leave the grilled cheese sandwiches to us.
Never gonna give you up
Never gonna let you down
Never gonna run around and desert you
Never gonna make you cry
Never gonna say goodbye
Never gonna tell a lie and hurt you
David “Gig” Ondik, Mike Allen, & Nirav Patel
