Rancho Santa Margarita Restaurant is Changing for the Better with New Husband and Wife Team at the Helm

Frank Puliafico New Owner

 The Parkway Sports Bar and Grill, formerly The Parkway American Grill, a family friendly restaurant located in Rancho Santa Margarita’s Plaza Antonio, is proud to announce it is under new ownership. Massachusetts transplants and now proud Orange County residents, Frank and Justine Puliafico, have been dreaming of owning their own restaurant for the past 30 years, and have made that dream a reality in the heart of Rancho Santa Margarita. All restaurant employees transitioned with the change in ownership, excited to be a part of Frank and Justine’s vision.

Since taking over the restaurant in late October 2019, the Puliafico’s have been busy making some much-needed upgrades and improvements to The Parkway and its menu. The new menu features twists on classic recipes and signature flavors, like Wagyu Beef sliders, Baja Fish Tacos and a Grilled Ribeye. Staples of the previous restaurant like the fan-favorite burgers and pizzas remain, but with ingredient upgrades to enhance taste and quality. Brand new items to the menu include The “Parkway” Burger made with one-third pound of Wagyu beef, a Beyond Burger, The Game Day Sandwich featuring grilled sweet Italian sausage smothered with grilled peppers and a refreshing Antipasto Salad.

“We are thrilled to join such a thriving community and are committed to making The Parkway Sports Bar & Grill the beloved gathering place it once was, where friends and family can come together and enjoy great food, drink, music, and sports!” said Frank. “It’s our goal to provide an environment and menu that caters to all ages across many occasions, from family dinners and team parties to date nights and watching your favorite games on our many big screens.

To celebrate the unveiling of The Parkway Sports Bar & Grill and in hopes of introducing themselves to the community, the Puliafico’s are holding a family-friendly event on Saturday, January 18 from 11:30 a.m. – 8:00 p.m., featuring 50% OFF all food items* and live entertainment throughout the day. All kids’ meal orders come with a complimentary build-your-own sundae.

The Parkway features a large patio where there is live music by some of Orange County’s best local bands and artists every Friday and Saturday evening. The full bar, serving craft cocktails, draft beer and specialty wine, is sectioned away from general dining and is a great place to watch games on the big screens. The restaurant also includes a space with a large communal table perfect for hosting team parties and special occasions.

Frank continued, “We are a big sports family and know that many other families bond over their favorite teams, so we wanted to make sports a big focal point of The Parkway. There will always be a game on here! We’re looking forward to getting to know our new neighbors and we hope the community joins us on January 18 for a fun day!”
