We had been going to Roadhouse for years but had not been since we had moved to another city . Recently we returned and there were many changes. First they served a large dinner salad with outsanding house dressing. The salad is now half the size and the house dressing is gone, They have added a trip tip which is served as a whole piece but tasted like pot roast.
The baby back ribs are still excellent; fall off the bone. The bbq sauce is average.. On a Friday night at 7:00 the restaurant was 3/4 filled; in the past you would wait an hour for a table.

I ordered bacon wrapped filet - well done butterflied. It was cooked properly, however, it tasted horrible. Took a few bites and didn't eat anymore of it. Kind of feared food poisioning...it tasted that bad.

Can definitely say will not be going back here.

I know business is not what it use to be with people not eating out as much and all, but at least serve something decent. It was not. The peanuts were good and so was the large glass of water.
