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!
