I met some friends here who are regulars. The service before they came was slow and labored. We had both roast beef and goat. The meat was fresh and well done.

This place was so busy on a Sunday that we had to wait 1.5 hours for our order, but the food was very tasty and service pleasant. Very clean bathrooms as well, which is unusual for such local restaurants. Lots of people were coming for...More

With a craving for meat, we decided to visit Roadhouse. To reduce the wait time, we called ahead to order. With nyama choma, it is important to not already be hungry when you arrive, as there will always be a wait, even if pre-ordered. With...More
