Excellent, home cooking and blue plate specials – Eaten here hundreds of times (literally) since I moved here in 96 and never had a bad meal. Very consistant and always great service
Only negatives, they get busy and there is often a wait, also the parking situation isn't great.
Bring back the Monte Cristo!
Quality dropping – This used to be an awesome place for breakfast but the management must have instructed the kitchen to cut corners, it is no where close to what it used to be. A lot (well, actually every side dish) we ordered appeared to be pre-frozen and not very fresh. And a cup of coffee >$2 should not have grounds in it - ironically the free stuff in the waiting area was far superior.
tasty cuisine – I love the their food selection. It was very appetizing. The service was also prompt and the wait staff was very nice. This is one enjoyable way to give yourself a treat.
It was very gratifying. – I have heard a lot about this place, so we went ahead and tried it. We ordered their best-sellers and we were truly amazed by its flavor and aroma. It was definitely mouthwatering
Excellent! – American Roadhouse was far better than I expected, with extremely reasonable prices and large (but not offensively large) portions. I'm not a huge breakfast person, but given the menu choices it was impossible to not find something I liked. The main breakfast entrees are in the $10 range and come with your choice of three (yes, three) sides. I had the Greek omelet, which was a fluffy mixture of spinach, tomatoes, and feta cheese, with a side of fresh fruit, whole wheat toast, and turkey bacon. The omelet was perfect with just enough spinach, tomatoes, and enough gooey feta to make it feel not quite so healthy, but not overly indulgent either. Other items ordered at the table included a Denver omelet (diced ham, peppers, onions, and cheddar cheese), with cheese grits, a buttermilk biscuit, and pancakes on the side. I LOVE pancakes, but usually find the restaurant variety to be somewhat bland. Not these. Oh, they were a sweet, fluffy, vanilla-tinged stack of joy. I love that the syrup is kept warm and not brought out until and unless you need it. Nothing ruins a warm stack of pancakes more than thick, room temperatures syrup. The syrup here is steaming hot and perfectly melts all the butter I feel obligated to schmear onto the pancakes.
The place also offers a wide range of lunch entrees in additon to all the breakfast items, from salads to sandwiches to blue plate specials. They also serve beer, wine, and stay open on weekends until 4 AM (which is smart given its location smack dab in the middle of bar-heavy Virginia Highlands. I'll definitely be making a return trip or two.)
awesome lunch spot – This place is great, the menu very diverse, great atmosphere and service I recommend anyone to give it a shot!
Best pizza anywhere, Avoid on Friday nights, Great customer service – # Be conversational: Write it as if relaying your experience to a good friend.
# Be specific: Generalities like "lazy service" or "tasty pizza" leave people wanting m
HECTOR is an idiot – I'm not sure if he was just hungover or what, but Hector was clearly having a bad day. I LOVE ROAD HOUSE!
Absolutely Terrible! (Hector Verde) – First and foremost this was perhaps the worst brunch I have ever had to pay for. After a long evening the night before I was desperately needing scrumptious breakfast materials. I could not wait to order four different drinks and 6 plates of anything a la carte. Someone suggested the Roadhouse so we all went along with the program.
The Roadhouse gets half of the point I graciously gave them for allowing us to call ahead and get us on the list to get a table as soon as we walk in. The restaurant is basically an independent version of any variety of huge corporate eateries that litter exit off ramps on major interstates in suburban cities. The tables, chairs, decor, art, food, silverware, carpet, and even the annoyingly generic audio feed was an obvious pre-packaged abortion that Sysco kicked out of their 53' trailer as they were making their neighborhood deliveries.
I cannot believe I dared ordering the crab cakes hollandaise. Who do I think I am shoveling this "food" into my body, Anthony Zimmern? What is this food actually built with anyway? The english muffins were obviously stale - cardboard. The crab cakes were paper thin and terrible - cardboard. The home fries looked more like dehydrated peaches and had absolutely no seasoning and did not grow from our earth's soil - once again cardboard. Poached eggs - don't even ask.
The best part and where the other half of a point derives is the hollandaise sauce. They scraped that extra little bit by allowing me to leave their pectic yellow bacteria inseminated gelatinous goo in the petri dish in the bowels of the kitchen. Maybe I should give the whole point to myself for being the smartest person in the establishment by leaving off the hellandaise and not finishing my meal. Yep, think I will. Hector = 1. American Roadhouse = 0.
Great for Brunch! – My friend and I are always trying to find a new restaurant. We were both in the mood for Brunch so we searched on citysearch and this was highly recommended. The food was fabulous! My friend ordered the Shrimp and Crab omelette and I had some corned beef hash dish. There cheese grits and french toast are to die for. I think the prices here are very affordable and the portions you receive are modest. We will be going back to this location very soon!
