This place was amazing. Of course the parking lot is small--the place is small too, & it has a ton of charm. The outside looks like it was made from scrap wood, & outside they have a soundtrack of frogs croaking in the bushes; In the bathroom there is a soundtrack of cows mooing--very comical, fun. The place isnt glamorous, but it is a good time. It would be a GREAT date place to go to with someone you dont mind chucking peanuts and getting sauce on your face. Pretty Southern feeling-- Drinks are served in BALL jars, and they had fried pickle rounds and fried okra, (both of which you rarely see here in CA, what a treat!) and both served with great ranch dressing.\r
For dinner we got the sampler platter, called the Roadhouse Special, $30, just to make sure we tried everything. It said it was for two people, but it was an unbelievable amount of food that could easily feed 3 or 4. It came with 3 appetizers, 2 pieces sausage, 2 fried chicken, hushpuppies, cornbread, biscuits, 2 pork ribs, 2 beef ribs, 2 sides (we got bbq pinto beans and cajun rice-both just ok) and peach cobler with ice cream for dessert. The sausage was spicy but super good, the pork ribs' meat fell off the bone (and there were more like 6 ribs than 2), and the BBQ sauce on both was terrific (Im sure the pulled pork is great). By far the most stand-out was the fried chicken, though. Moist and slightly spicy, thick batter that was perfectly crisp--definitely the best fried chicken I have ever eaten anywhere. The cobler came in a humongous bowl, with about a pint of vanilla ice cream in a companion bowl. The peaches were canned, but its so rare I have cobler, I enjoyed it anyway. \r
Service isnt great, but it isnt super bad either-- we could have used some help taking some of the plates and napkins off of our food-stuffed table--bussers werent too attentive in that department. \r
Be prepared to wait. At 7:30pm Monday night the wait was 30mins.
Pros: Great sauce, Best Fried Chicken, Neat Looking Place
Cons: Not the friendliest service, slow bussing, had to ask for water
