A good local establishment that has been there for years. Probably most famous for their pizza and burgers. They have a very active bar with video gambling available.

We are driving to a couple restaurants today to try out wings and this place didn't disappoint. It may look small on the outside but the service and food inside make it grand. The hot wings and teriyaki wings were both the perfect crisp with the perfect sauce. Not over sauced. Just right

Gilmer Roadhouse is a local little place that we've been going to for breakfast for many, many years. Recently the dining room was nicely updated and is comfortable. Service was prompt . This is not a place where you come for fast food, but food that is fresh, cooked to order and worth the little extra wait. The portions are... More

I am so telling everyone about the burgers and pizza. This place is trying to hide. They have to because I would have never thought to go inside. So of course this place is WOM (Word of Mouth). It took my wife an hour to convince me as we are new in the neighborhood and she heard from a co-worker... More

Went on a Sunday night and the dining room was empty. Server did not know much about the menu (couldn't explain the steak sandwich and guessed wrong on the vegetable of the day) but was friendly and attentive. Soup was good, burgers big. The steak sandwich was served on a burger bun and was two small pieces of some kind... More

Went back to see how well the waitress knew the menu. Asked her to explain what the "special of the night" was. She couldn't tell us what "chicken limone" was without asking someone in the kitchen. Also, I ordered spaghetti and it turned out to be linguine, which wasn't as easy to "fork". Tasted okay, but would have ordered something... More

Located at the corner of Midlothian and Gilmer Roads, this frame house has a cozy/friendly bar and casual dining room. The food is always "country-comfort" with burgers, ribs, etc. Good drinks and friendly service. Fun!

Food got both my wife and I sick...not bad just a ton of running to the bathroom. I had the ribs which were fair at best. She got a pasta dish which made her sick. I hear the pizza is good and it did look good but the food and service were fair...find someplace else!

Can't imagine going back to this place. Not sure how long they are going to keep the red cans of paint in the dining area, but the Blackhawks decor renovation seems completed weeks ago.time to clean up now. The Food was absolutely unremarkable. We went because of a great deal on Local Flavor...Wouldn't go back even with another coupon.

This place has potential to be better than it is currently. The ribs could be great and the same with the burgers. They both need a tune up. It's basically cooking technique. Good quality meat and a decent price. SEAR your burgers on an open flame grill. Grill the ribs on an open flame grill after the basic long cooking... More
