We stopped in for lunch on a Sunday. No wait for a table which was nice. We tried the chicken taco salad and steak nachos. They were both very good and the two of us could not finish them. Would stop again for lunch, maybe a casual dinner.

Absolutely amazing! Delicious food. Friendly staff. Long wait time. Appetizers are okay. Ours was burnt this last time which was upsetting.

Their steaks and prime rib is to die for! Give them a try, you won't be disappointed. Great potatoes and salads also!

My wife and I visited the Best Little Roadhouse last week for our daughter's birthday. A party of five on a very crowded Friday night we were seated within 15 minutes. Pretty good. The food was above average. Service was very good.

Every now and then I like to go off of my meat and potatoes, french fry, and potato chip diet to have a salad. Rare as this is, I'm usually disappointed in the results. But, the Best Little Road house has THE best entree' salads in this town and probably a lot of other towns. I had the tri-tip salad,... More

Thanks for writing a review about our entree salads! They are a favorite here, if you are trying to cut out calories, we do offer some low carb dressings, and our garden salad is great (but no cheese and bacon!). Thanks again for the great review, we appreciate your patronage. More

I Love the food and the service! Steaks are one of my favorite things to order here. I also like that they have seating available for larger groups.

We went for lunch. Seated quickly, great service. I got the half rack of ribs with fries. They were so good, fell right off the bone so tender! I got fries and they weren't the best. Husband got the french dip with mashed potatoes. He loved it. I tried his potatoes and they were so so good I'll get those... More

Great 2nd visit with family. Everyone thought the food was delicious...bacon burger, pulled pork sandwich, sirloin steak & masher bites. The dinner rolls were a hit with the bread lovers in our group....similar to Hawaiian rolls. The only complaint with our experience there was that it is very noisy and it was very hard to hear each other. Our understanding... More

Thanks for writing such a great review. We are glad your family enjoyed the food. We do have a enclosed patio that we keep at about 70 degrees this time of year. In the summer it becomes a covered patio. We do take reservations and requests to sit on our patio. Have a wonderful day, and thanks again for taking... More

Great steaks, great yeast rolls, friendly staff and a menu although generally typical fare has some unique and delicious items. Tro-tip salad, awesome. Ribs that truly fall off the bone. Best of all is the watermelon BBQ sauce. Very busy on the weekend, go after 730pm

Rolls are awesome. Honey butter that comes with is yummy. Chicken sandwich/burger was pretty good and sweet potato fries. Service could have been better. Seemed we were being rushed out. I would go again. My fiend got the BLT that she said was good.
