THis restaurant get very busy around happy hour and dinner time but worth the wait, we have been there during lunch also not as long of a wait. The hot wings are so good and crispy if asked to cook them longer and the onions strings are also so good but there is a lot of them. I really liked... read more

Not too far and easy to find with nav off interstate 5. Arrived just before noon on a Saturday. Nice updated decor and restroom. Attentive service. Pulled pork sandwich was excellent and I chose a sweet potato instead of fries. It was huge, soft, topped with butter, cinnamon and brown sugar--the best I've ever had and not too sweet. And...

The jalapeno popper rolls are good, the salad was crisp. My steak was way overcooked- a steak house should be able to do a medium rate with their eyes closed. End of story for me.

Visiting from out of state, and was looking for a phenomenal steak, sides and appetizers. This was definitely not the place for that! Steak was ok, but salad was definitely bought in bulk in a bag. Service was ok. Worst bloody Mary mix--very bland and only memorable in a bad way. Won't be visiting here again any time soon.

This place is amazing!! The watermelon BBQ sauce is TO DIE FOR!! :) Don't confuse this place w/the Roadhouse as they are not the same!! The Best Little Roadhouse if my FAV!! Can be a little on the spendy side but if you looking for a great meal and wonderful service you won't be disappointed! They also have outdoor mini... More

I know a lot of people like this place, but I just don't. The food is greasy, the prices are high for what you get, and it's so loud inside that you can't talk to anyone without yelling. After trying it a few times I just decided to avoid it because it wasn't getting any better. I really haven't found... More

Who would believe that ribs seasoned only with salt & pepper could be so amazing? (Yes, you can choose to adulterate them with one of their specialty BBQ sauces... but why?) To get them for $1 per rib, you will need to sit in the bar & time your visit for happy hour. I suggest you sit at the bar... More

I've given this restaurant three tries, and have repeatedly been disappointed. This is not a good restaurant. The service has been- well one time the server complained bitterly about her long shift and her exhaustion; another dinner was served by an obviously inexperienced and untrained young woman who could not open the wine and delivered one meal (prepared wrong by...

I've eaten at the Best Little Roadhouse many times. LOVE the Roadhouse salad...love the salmon...love the chicken....yep, never had anything I didn't like. Miniature golf course is a lot of fun too. Only complaint I've ever had about this place is that it's a little noisy, that's just because it's so popular. Rarely have to wait for a table. Good... More

I noticed this restaurant on my way to the hotel I had booked on a business trip and went there the following evening. I had an early dinner as my "body clock" was three hours later than the local time zone. I was seated immediately and had a very pleasant waitress named Ocean. I was quickly served hot and delicious... More
