American
The seventh member of Zingerman’s Community of Businesses, located in Ann Arbor, Michigan, the Roadhouse opened in 2003 with the vision of bringing really good American food to the community. The Roadhouse has worked hard to create its own truly unique food culture, transforming high-quality ingredients into traditional, full-flavored dishes after years of studying American foodways.

With chef Bob Bennett at the helm of the kitchen, and our James Beard Award nominated staff’s dedication to great service, the Roadhouse draws in regulars from all over. We welcome our fans from right down the block or from all over the country. Buttermilk Fried Chicken, award-winning Mac ‘n Cheese, NOLA Gumbo, Nashville Hot Chicken, Oyster Po’Boys, full-flavored burgers, and Donut Sundaes are just a few Roadhouse specialties that people look forward to every time they dine with us. Beyond these tried-and-true dishes, the Roadhouse is also a destination for really good BBQ!

    $19 for a pulled pork sandwich is crazy. It tasted like pulled pork, nothing special. My husband got the BBQ plate with 3 small pieces of meat which he said was fine but he did really like the mashed potatoes. My son enjoyed the fried chicken sandwich and mac and cheese. Overall everything was fine, just expected better presentation.

    All was good besides the food. I had white fish sandwich with sweet potato fries. The fries were excellent but the fish not so much. There was hardly any fish on the baguette. I was eating breaded fish skin without the meat. The baguette (at least that is what is stated on the menue) was definitely soft bread and not your typical delicious Zingerman's baguette. The pumpkin cream cheese cake was nice for dessert. All in all the food was disappointing and to expensive. I expect better quality fish from Zingerman's.... I will not go back to the Roadhouse. Does not do Zingerman's justice.

    Our server was charming. The Roadhouse was busy - big private party and near the holiday. Given all that, the whole experience was excellent. Which is what we've come to expect from the Roadhouse. They rarely, if ever, disappoint

    My omelette and potatoes came cold as did the other two people with me. As soon as we placed the order it was delivered within 2 minutes. That is a true statement. The waitress indicated that they were making things in advance to insure they did not get backed up. This will be the last time I go here for breakfast/brunch. It is more expensive and I believe you should expect more from Zingerman's. Very disappointed.

    The food is good, fresh and well prepared. The menu is large with vegetarian options as well as steak and seafood. The service tries to help friendly and helpful but on the night we went during the week it was both slow and disorganized. Everything is very expensive. If you expect $$ going in you can have an enjoyable evening.

    So disappointed! The vegetarian options were not interesting and very overpriced. I ordered the veg soup. That was good but warm. I came for my fave, sweet potato fries. They are Sweet potato quarters kinda air fried. The kale salad was gross. Shredded kale (Dry,unappetizing) some parm cheeses on top. We waited almost an hour for our food. And had to ask several times for my fries. We used to come for20 yrs) before covid For dinner w/a group after art show shopping. Was our first time back. Nothing, service, food, capable ,knowledgable staff, fun atmosphere wad the same. Will go to deli next time In AA

    Reliable, comfort food standby on Ann Arbor's west side. Can get pricy, but food quality is well above average, and nightly Blue Plate Specials afford some savings. Monday is Burger Night - grilled over a wood fire - with a nice choice of cheese toppings. Various healthy (or unhealthy) sides that can be substituted for the standard fries. Delicious sweet potato fries available for a small uncharge, as are salads. A few caveats: 1) Don't count on your burger to be cooked to the temperature you've ordered... a request "medium" (pink in the middle) and "well-done" (gray through-and-through) is a frequent result. (Too much time under a cover to melt the cheese?) But if you ask, they will remake it. They take their food - and customer service - seriously. 2) Their preparations can be on the salty side. If that's a problem, make that plain to them. 3) My previous compliments not withstanding, the service can be haphazard, with multiple people waiting on you. On a recent visit, once order was placed, we never saw our waiter again - and several request were completely forgotten. But that's the exception - not the rule.
