We went on a Sunday for an early dinner. The location is perfect for people driving from the Chicago area to Galena or vice versa. The atmosphere is terrific, and it's a great place for families. The food was very good. I especially liked the fried pickles, the fried okra, and the BBQ chicken. There were three sauces to choose... More

By far the tastiest Beef Brisket I've ever had. 3 difference sauces. I had half and half beef brisket and pulled pork. I could have had 3 meats, and added the baby back ribs, but the portions are huge. The atmosphere is a fun western style saloon, tastfully decorated with ample size. They have a stage for entertainment with plenty... More

This is a mandatory stop for our family when we travel from Chicago to Galena. The BBQ is all fantastic and the atmosphere is loads of fun. The place is clean and has several different areas to hang out... the bar, the tables & stage area, and even a nice party room. My favorite is the outdoor pavillion on a... More

A must if you're in the Galena area. Great BBQ! The BBQ sliders are delicious, and we especially liked the fried pickles! Family friendly for lunch or dinner, and very clean. There's a party room and an outdoor pavillion. We will definitely be back.

Great bar food. I love the fried okra and pickles. They were great. We also tried the BBQ sliders. All with a great selection of beers. I will certainly stop by the next time we are in Galena.

We've been regular customers since the roadhouse opened. Recently they have changed up their menu, adding wood fired smoked foods. After having a rack of ribs I can honestly say "AWESOME" not overly BBQed, just the right amount of sauce and fixins to make a great meal. Still the same friendly relaxed atmosphere but now with another reason to stop... More

Roadhouse-style bar & grill with good cold drinks and a decent menu of typical burgers, BBQ, and other fried goodies. Outside seating (weather permitting), with live music on the weekends. Usually you will see several, or several dozen, motorcycles parked out front, but the atmosphere is casual and friendly. Drinks and food are reasonably priced.
