We always enjoy going to Fork in the Road. Their sandwiches in particular are always creative and delicious. On our recent visit, I had a chicken sandwich. The chicken breast was lightly breaded and sautéed and topped with carmelized onions, green peppers, cheese and dried tomatoes on a toasted bun. Yum. My husband had what they called a chicken club...

Went there last summer and liked it so much planned to go there again. Finally got back today. My wife ordered the chicken "tenders" from the appetizers menu (8 dollars),because she liked them so much from our first visit. A meal in itself, had to have a bag for the leftovers to take home. I ordered the Reuben and fries,with... More

Ken L, thank you for taking the time and writing TripAdvisor about your lunch. It's very nice when our guest take the time and write such nice comments about us. Also, I'm sorry about the Tabasco, I just think Tapatio has a much better flavor, so day try the two of them next to each other maybe you will agree... More

I have read and heard several very good reviews for Fork in the Road. Our group of four went on a busy Friday evening. First, I will say that the service was very good and our server was very attentive and quick in her work. We ordered haystack onion rings and cheese curds for appetizers and they were too greasy...

Hi 64jmp, I'm very sorry that your trip to my restaurant was just OK, we always try to exceed our guest expectations. I'm going to sit down with the kitchen manager and see what we can come up with. Our meat loaf has been on the menu for about 12 years now, maybe it's time to shake up the plate... More

I thouroughly enjoyed the fried chicken which was not too 'bready' but extremely flavorful! Their mozzerella Marinara is amazing too with 3 large crispy squares in tangy marinara. My husband, who eats more healthy enjoyed a salad and a chicken sandwich and love that as well. The bonus was that the bill was verry reasonable - Highly Recommend!!!
