“Nice place- food just ok”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Nice atmosphere and service but food was very disappointing. Would go back there to to hear the band on the weekend but would probably not eat there. Its a shame that the owners would not do more to have better food because the place could be a big hit.

“If only the food was as good as the music”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

I've really tried to love the Road House, but every time I've been there, I keep coming to the same conclusion: It is just average. On a recent Saturday night, the best things we had came from elsewhere - the beer and the dessert. The turkey meatloaf is an overly bready hunk of bland. The ribs were tender enough; the sauce was overbearingly thick and sweet. The side of "roasted vegetables" was a mishmash of overcooked asparagus and nearly raw zucchini and summer squash. The garlic mashed potatoes were terrific. The servers are genuinely nice people who really do a good job. They are friendly and helpful to a one. No doubt, I'll keep coming back, though with recent entrants to Pittsboro like The Mod and newly re-opened Bella Donna, we have some legitimate alternatives.

“DINING - Big Things Can Come to Small Towns!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

A very large group of friends and associates and friends recently had the pleasure of getting together for a meal at the Pittsboro Road House & General Store. Dining in the shadow of the newly rebuilt Courthouse in a somewhat ecletic but warm setting was a culinary thrill. Although those immediately around me ate a variety of entrees, the vocal "yums" could be heard up and down the long table. My dinner was delicious. Our waitress Candy, though very overworked, managed to keep everyone in condiments, bread, tea and whatever.

I was very surprised to see such a variety of menu offerings, some staples, with a smattering or a blending of the unusual.

Pittsboro is a Mayberry right off the TV show, but the Roadhouse is NOT the diner. I truly enjoyed it and will go again.
