“Hmmm... so promising... but”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2012

Location is right outside the Barcelo Resort where we stayed. We wanted to try the restaurant since I am in the Steakhouse business in Canada and was craving a good steak. They advertise that they serve Certified Angus Beef which is a reliable and generally well above average branded beef program well known and respected in Canada and the U.S. . While it is true that they have a small selection of Certified Angus Beef steaks on the menu, the only one they had in stock was the sirloin. We were the only people dining that evening ( Friday at about 9 pm) and we both ordered the only steak available from the Certified Angus Beef. Mine was a brutally bad cut, my partners was better than some I have had in Canada. The preparation and presentation were both excellent. We asked to meet the chef, a young fellow who told us in pretty good english that he had spent some time living and cooking in New York. No reason to doubt him. We talked at some length about how simple it would be given his obvious cooking skills to serve a truly memorable steak dinner ( something that seems hard to find in the Dominican) . I hope he heard me and that they will do something about it. It is nice to get off the resort at least once during the visit and the proximity makes this a good option.
The place turns into a pretty fun disco after 11 and we went back with about 8 other "friends" from the resort and danced and drank a bit. Nice people there trying to be good at what they do... I'd love to go back and give them some help.

“Great times at Roadways!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2012 via mobile

Stopped in at roadway for a quick drink during happy hour one night and ended up comming back four times!
The younger promoters may be a little off-putting (they get paid based on how many customers they bring in), but don't let that stop you.
Free app, happy hour from 8-10 with premium liquor, amazing fresh food made and served with pride by an excellent staff.
Best meals we had all week!
