Good food

First time here. The food was plentiful and delicious. Service was good. Would come back again. We both had the tri-tip and it was delicious. The BBQ sauce great and the vegetables were cooked right, a little aldente but not over cooked mush, yeah! We loved the warm bread. The peach tea was... read more

They have the best sirloin lunch steak! Very busy at noon, wait until 1. Parking is limited, lots of seating if you are willing to go into the back area. Service always good, very willing to accommodate food allergies.

Love this place! People are always having a good time! The food is awesome, with baked sweet potatoes, and sweet potato fries! The honey butter on their soft buttery dinner rolls is as good as it gets! Sometimes the wait is a little bit long, even with inside AND outside seating, but it's worth it! The service couldn't be better!

We stopped for lunch. Had the all you can eat soup and salad for $7.99. You have your choice of house salad or Caesar. The soups were chili or vegetable beef. We had house salad which had lettuce, tomato, cheese, bacon. It was crisp and fresh. The soups were great and of course you get their famous yeast rolls with... More

We had tri tips. The best we gave ever had, plenty of food. Our Friends had New York steak and prime rib. Again great. Best chicken tortilla soup. The diner salads were good also.

Our party of 9 was seated quickly, but at a long narrow table. That and the noise level made this a poor choice for visiting with a group. The food and service were good. I would recommend for couples and small groups, but not a larger group.

my sister & I popped into The Little Roadhouse for lunch. Food was exceptionally good for myself (I have lots of allergies) staff were very attentive and helpful. Then we went and played the mini crazy golf course (18 holes) outside and thoroughly enjoyed the experience and fun involved. I highly recommend this place.

The food was ok...not as good as the hype. The atmosphere and customer service is what ruined it for me. Way too noisy and couldn't get anyone to stop by our table....even though they were walking right past us. The other Roadhouse (different chain) on Lancaster is better. Won't be back when there's so many other great options near by.... More

Hotel recommended this restaurant. Had a short wait & place was busy. Food was good and portions were generous. Wait staff was fairly attentive. BBQ sauce included on pulled pork was not the one that I prefer but it was decent.
