I do like this restaurant. But my Manhattans were tiny and not happy hour price. Manhattans are not supposed to be small drinks and especially not for $13. When I got home with the to go order I realized we had four small pieces of pita for an app for multiple people. Four small pieces isn't even enough for one person. I've noticed they're very skimpy on pita bread for some reason and even charge more for more pieces if you ask for it . The entree salad we ordered was not worth the price paid. Also skimpy. Forgot the bacon that I did pay for on two burgers that I also took home.

One of the best burgers ever! Homemade chips and a great local IPA. Our server was outstanding and we really enjoyed the atmosphere and location.

My wife and I enjoy an occasional "date night," and Roadhouse Boulder Depot is one of our favorite go-to local restaurants.

The atmosphere, both in the dining room and on the patio, is casual... but nicer than your typical burger joint or ethnic cuisine venue. The table-side service is superb: we've never had less than an exemplary experience. Our server this time was a young lady named Melissa: she was courteous, professional, and appropriately interactive. The food menu is top-notch (but affordable), their beer/wine list makes for a nice mix of craft and top-tier brands, and the quality/freshness of their ingredients (including gluten-free and vegan options) can't be beat.

Even with the limited social interaction posed by COVID-19, the Roadhouse has done an outstanding job of maintaining their ambiance (the patio plants are gorgeous and well-maintained), ensuring customers feel welcome, and taking care of all C-19 hygiene requirements.

In general, I can highly recommend Roadhouse Boulder Depot for couples dining, family outings, and corporate dinners... as they do a great job across the board. Bravo!!

Appreciate the ample outdoor seating and ability to make patio reservations ahead of time (book through Open Table and call for patio seating). Service was a bit slow and this is the second time we've been there for breakfast where our over easy eggs were overcooked to hard yolks. Salads and burgers are great but I think I'll skip breakfast next time.

The food was outstanding. We shared the salmon dish and the French dip. The portions were large and delicious. We sat outside and watched a gorgeous sunset. Melissa, out waitress, was the friendliest person and so sweet and patient. I love this place. I never knew it was so close and now that I've discovered it I will return often!!

We were sat outside (much quieter than inside).
Due to COVID, our outdoor dining was informal. We were seated at a couch. However, my husband and I loved the whole experience! It was a wonderfully relaxed night out.
Our server was great! She was attentive, but gave us enough space to enjoy our evening.

THIS PLACE MAKES ME HAPPY! The food is awesome. You can eat inside or out. There’s character and ambience and did I mention that the food is so flavorful and suits every need? This would be my neighborhood place if I lived next door. Thanks for a great night for all ages.

Unfortunately we waited for a very long for our server. Eventually my husband went in to ask and she was chatting with the hostess. I’m not sure if the hostess failed to tell her or she forgot but we nearly left. It was a minimum of 13 minutes—our reservations were for 5:30, we were seen at 5:47. I received my Open Table points confirmation email at 5:34 so it’s possible it was 13 instead of 17 but regardless it was a bit frustrating. I get that mistakes happen, but I would have expected an apology and effort to be extra friendly after the mix up. This did not occur. Food was fine, drinks were fine. I would eat here again but not go out of my way to do so.

Do not go to the Roadhouse at Boulder Junction. I am sad to write that. I love this restaurant and have had great interactions with the chef and owner in the past. Felt it was out of the way enough to feel comfortable. Went for an early dinner and saw 3 separate parties who entered without masks who were seated rather than being turned away or requested to wear masks.. I spoke with the manager who was also the person who seated them and he said ‘oh it didn’t even register that they weren’t wearing masks’. I will be reporting to the health department.

We sat near the kitchen. My husband was facing the kitchen when he notice the food handler put her index finger in her mouth and place a clean spoon on a plate. Then proceeded to wipe her nose with right and left index finger and placed her hand on our food. We turned the food away and notified the manager. Next day Boulder Health Dept.

Enjoyed eating on the patio and watching the sun go down over the mountains. Enjoyed the enchiladas, prime rib dip, humus platter, thai noodles, and short rib bowl. Peach cobbler was amazing. Beer list was great and was happy to have more than an IPA to pick from.

Great food but not adhering to the same COVID safety standards as the rest of Boulder restaurants. Server was hand carrying our drinks with no tray and no gloves. Just holding them all at the rim. Same with plates of food. Bar was slow and food arrived faster than all drinks. Steaks were delicious.

The weather was amazing with a nice little breeze, so we decided to sit outside. Our waitress was attentive and kind, and the manager even came out to make sure everything was going well... NOW THE FOOD... oh man, if you haven't eaten here yet, GO GO GO!!!! The food is sooooo good!!! Make sure to get the nachos as an appetizer, but don't try to finish it or else you won't have enough room to eat dishes like the Jam Burger or the Prime Rib... try the Jalapeno Mash Potatoes!!!!!

Okay. I'm done. lol. This place is so good!

We enjoyed our meals and the staff was nice and all had masks on. We ate outside, which was lovely. The only negative thing was that they sat a table right behind us, which was definitely not 6 feet away, which made me feel really uncomfortable.
