4 of us stopped here late Sunday in Sept. expecting to have their brisket but they were out because of a biker ride hitting them earlier. So we opted for their burger special, pulled pork casadias and smoked wings. Also tried their funnel cake fingers... Service was great, but we were one of two tables. The food was average. We...

We have visited this place two times, and we were happy both times. All you can eat fish on Friday,was good. Have had the $5 basket special two times, I love the pulled pork sandwich, hubby had the brisket sandwich very happy with both. Home made chips alone are worth the trip. Interesting atmosphere, good service. I have a feeling... More

Stopped by on a Sunday night on the way home from Galena. The place was very quiet which meant the wait staff was very attentive. We ordered pulled pork sandwiches - definitely some of the best we have ever had!! Decor is great, too. Would go here again :)

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
