To prepare for the ribbon cutting ceremony on their grand opening Wednesday afternoon, the new Chilling Point Restaurant and Bar held a soft opening on Friday, June 24th, 2022 as a trial run before the official grand opening to work out the kinks in our service.
Invited friends and families of the Best Western and Chilling Point Restaurants employees got to try the variety of appetizers, entrees and dessert.

The service during the new Chilling Point Restaurant and Bar Soft Opening was welcoming and friendly; greeting us with smalls and checking on our tablet to make sure all was going great with our service.
For the food; Zachary and friend Lorie shared the Sample Platter appetizer with your choices of dipping sauces; then afterwards Zachary had the Top Sirloin dinner entrée with vegetables and baked potato with toppings and side salad and for dessert a strawberry Chillin’ Shake well Lorie had the Pastrami Melt sandwich with crispy fries and for dessert a chocolate Chillin’ Shake; all were delicious.
The new Chilling Point Restaurant and Bar replaces the Giggling Cactus Restaurant which closed a few years ago as many restaurants and businesses struggled during the COVID-19 pandemic and restrictions.
