“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

This place is one of the best places to eat in the So Cal desert. It is family run by husband and wife, Miguel and Lordes. The quality of food is exceptional. They make, hands down the best Tostada Grande on planet Earth! Everything on the menu is good and the staff are friendly and very proffessional. ... Dont miss the incredible bargain on Dolar Taco Tuesdays! Roadhouse is off the main Hwy and is one of the desert's best kept secrets!

“Yummy food and excellent service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2011 via mobile

Three of us went to dinner, and all absolutely loved the food. I had fish and chips which were great. The other two had flat iron steaks cooked medium rare. The steaks were juicy and flavorful with tasty onion straws on top. Our waitstaff was on top of everything throughout the whole meal. I will definitely come back to the roadhouse cafe

“By far the best food in Yucca, not cheap but not LA prices either”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2011 via mobile

Decent American standards like French dip, burgers, sandwiches. Steaks generally good. Salads are edible and tortilla soup is okay. If I were recommending I'd chhse their spinach salad with dressing on side (they can put too much on otherwise) French dip. Bread is old fashioned and delicious if you like that kind of bread. Very middle America.

“Run of the mill - but one of the better places, unfortunately”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2011

Ownership changed about 6 months ago. The Roadhouse used to be great. Now it is just okay. The fish and chips is always good! Portions are on the large side; I'm not sure how anyone finishes the club sandwich by himself. Desserts have been good, but we're too full to eat them.
