“For American food and atmosphere, definitely worth a try.”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

I was skeptical that any mid-range restaurant here could prepare decent versions of typical American dishes, especially barbeque, so we tried the buffalo wings, cheeseburger, pulled pork sandwich, pork ribs and a variety of sides. Some things were excellent but others not so much, so if you want a change from Asian food then this is a good place to go if you choose carefully. Check out their menu on their website.

The buffalo wings were perfect: crisply fried with exactly the spicy, vinegary sauce you expect. The cheeseburger was very good: high-quality meat that was cooked and topped as requested. The meat was leaner than I like but mainly it was the price that turned me off. For only a burger, I'll pick another spot next time (Bangkok Burger Blog has a good list.) The ribs had decent smoke flavor and good meat taste but were a bit dry and not as tender as they could have been. Quite good but not great.

The losers were the pulled pork sandwich and the coleslaw. The pork had a strange flavor, possibly from the sweetener used in the sauce, was chopped not pulled, and was also a bit dry. All in all, bad enough that we had a couple of bites and left the rest. The coleslaw was large pieces of cabbage swimming in a sweet-ish vinegar sauce. I don't mind vinegar as opposed to mayo, but this recipe needs a lot of attention.

Atmosphere: great! It seems that most casual, Western restaurants here give little thought to atmosphere and instead adopt the Thai norms: cramped, little decor, a bit warm, flimsy furniture. Roadhouse is a big space, appropriately decorated, furnished with STURDY (you'll see what I mean) tables and chairs, and thermostats set a couple of degrees cooler. Give it a try!

“Great american food and cocktails in the heart of Bangkok”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

Ate here the other night with some friends and had a great time...was a bit apprehensive eating at an American restaurant in Asia but it was worth it.

Had the Brisket dinner, and my g/f had a burger. Food was good, service was friendly and the cocktails were stiff.

Late night the 3rd floor is a great spot to hangout, drink (they even have Jager bombs) and enjoy a fun night out.

A must for any American looking for a taste of home

“Great steaks and smoke meat”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

Roadhouse is an excellent spot for a drink or food. Very conveniently located; quite near SkyTrain and Subway...maybe 5 minutes walk. And a great view of Bangkok's rush hour traffic!

The steaks are excellent and very large...the smoked ribs excellent. You'll meet an interesting selection of Bangkok's ex pat population...and a surprising number of Thais. Well worth visiting.

“One of the best chilling place in Bangkok”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

I went to roadhouse last night and I had to say that it was brilliant. Start with the food and beverage, I oreded 10 buffallo wings, BLT sandwich and loaded pints of beer.All of the above meet me and my friends expectation. We actually had a good night hanging out at Roadhouse. The service was literally excellent. All of the waitresses did their jobs very well. Also, the two managers-B and Mike, are very taking care of customers.
To sum up, Roadhouse is the place that going to be my new favourite restaurant. The food, drink and service are all excellent.
