“Great value, choice, service and FUN!”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

AR is just what it proposes to be. Good food (not gourmet great), a large variety served in large portions for all tastes offered with friendly efficient service and at VERY reasonable prices. Seafood is the specialty and it was very good ; we ordered it broiled, grilled and fried and each method done just right. Side orders were well done and many things are made to order and it all arrives hot and delicious. VALUE is the rule here. You’ll leave full, satisfied and without much of a dent in your wallet.

“Lots of fried gunk!”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

It does not matter what fried seafood you order, it all comes with two inches of batter and a mystery meat inside and it all tastes the same. My wife ordered the shrimp and fish platter which came in a type of basket with all items piled on top of one another leaving no room to separate anything. The "shrimp" were of the tasteless, "popcorn" variety and they were soggy. I ordered broiled flounder and the waitress when asked if the fish was fresh, replied, " we don't get much call for broiled fish" and, I think the ribbon thin filet was microwaved, not broiled. You get 10-12 hushpuppies with your meal so, if that's what folks mean by a lot of food-so be it. This was perhaps one of the worst meals we have ever encountered.

“Great food and lots of it!”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

We stopped in Asheboro on our way to the beach and decided to give America's Roadhouse a try. I am so glad we did. They have a large menu but there forte is seafood. The server's shirt carry a logo that says " great seafood, we pile it on!" & they do! I had broiled oysters and scallops, a house salad, broccoli, baked potato and hush puppies. My wife had broiled baby Alaskan flounder which has a slightly different taste from local flounder and was very pleased. It came with the aforementioned sides except she had a baked sweet potato. All the seafood was cooked just right. They do something magical to their potatoes! Only twice in my 60+ years have I run across baked potatoes like this and both times were in NC. The inside was actually fluffy and absolutely delicious, my wife sweet potato was the same way. Our server was attentive but did not hover and was extremely friendly. My wife had never had the Alaskan Flounder and the server told her "If you don't like it we will bring you something else." How can you exceed that? Overall a very pleasant experience. The price was very reasonable and the restaurant was clean including the restroom. Good food, reasonable price, clean, great service - it was all there. If you stop you will not be disappointed.

“A seafood feast at a very reasonable price”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

We were traveling north from Myrtle Beach on September 5 and needed a dinner stop. We read the reviews of this restaurant and decided to give it a try. We were greeted promptly, seated quickly and our server couldn't have been any nicer. We both ordered the seafood platter--I picked a baked potato and hubby had fries. It came with coleslaw. Everything we had was wonderful. Popcorn shrimp isn't one of our favorites, but here it was really, really good. Scallops, whitefish, flounder, shrimp, stuffed crab, oysters and great hushpuppies. We ended up taking two full sized take out containers of leftovers--the portion was just huge. The platters were $12.99 or two for $24.50. Next time I'll opt for the daily special, two item fish dish which are $7.39. Everything we saw coming out looked really good.

“Stop the car here !!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Home cooking and reasonable prices for one of the best family friendly stops. A local favorite and we see why. Daily specials that are cooked fresh to order all day. One of our favorites.
