Description: American restaurant that takes much pride in making everything "in house" from scratch. We handcut our fries, smoke our ribs and make our own sauces. We love to serve great food and try our very best to choose from the best local ingredients. Roadhouse "The taste that brings you back"

“best diner in Reykjavik”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

An authentic american grill, owned by young people. They make everything from scratch and that is not common with icelandic fast food. Creative and innovative menu which changes from time to time. The have the concept nailed down and every time I´ve visited they have had the meat cooked perfectly. Young staff and often crowded. This place is getting very solid in a small period of time

“Ambitious delicious food and good sevice”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

Get popcorn while you wait. Everything is made from scratch, smoke their own ribs takes 2 days to make the fries they say and It's worth it. Service was good

“Surprisingly great”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

The Roadhouse in Reykjavik serves very exciting burgers - 5 guys quality. Heston Blumenthal would have been proud of their fries. Wonderful meal, and not that expensive.

“They make their own sauces and fries. Friendly, open space :)”
Reviewed April 4, 2012

It is quite a nice place, although finding parking is quite hard because it stands on a very busy street. But there usually is something in the area. The place is very new(I think it opened in January/February 2012). The service was quite friendly and accommodated my special request without any hesitation. My colleague ordered BBQ ribs, and I had a burger. Both were very good, and the home made fries were also quite acceptable. On every table there is a bottle of home made ketchup, it is very fresh and tastes healthy and pure, also very good with the fries. The 1/2 ribs portion was very big and looked good. I don't think the burger looked very nice, but it tasted good, and really fresh. I found the price a little high, but not overwhelming. Also the menu is not very varied. It is supposed to be an American diner of sorts, and I think it delivers on that.
