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!

We always love the Roadhouse! Ambiance, food, service, all are always spot on. We like to go on Sundays for grillades and grits, but the chicken and their poutine are also faves.

We were very happy with the outdoor dining. It was warm, lit and covered. Perfect on a chilly fall evening. The food and service were wonderful. We had a delightful evening.

A reservation is a must. Great service. The noise level is high, so this is not the place for a quiet dinner. The menu is diverse and there is usually something for everyone. In terms of appetizers, the poutine is wonderful and can easily be shared. The buttermilk fried chicken is always incredible, as are the burgers. Although we were there for dinner, I should mention that breakfast and brunch are fantastic.

Always enjoy the opportunity to dine at the Roadhouse. You can tell the price of beef has gone up. Burgers were a bit pricey. Another good experience. We’ll be back.

There are a number of the Roadhouse's standard dishes that I love (warm mushroom salad, black bean burger, breakfast tacos, bbq platters), and the maitaki mushroom pie, which was a featured item this past week, ranks among these favorites. Keep it on the menu, at least seasonally, please! Also, our food came quite quickly, everyone enjoyed the meal, the waitstaff was helpful with our questions, didn't appear rushed, even though lunch hour was busy. Usual great service and excellent food.

Breakfast at the Roadhouse is always a special treat. It starts at the front door with warm and caring greetings. The wait staff is always outstanding and make you feel like they are happy to accommodate whatever you desire. The cooks always make the food delicious and the coffee cups are always refilled before you remember to ask. Want to feel pampered? The Roadhouse experience never fails to deliver!

Finally made it inside after several failed attempts. Made a Wednesday reservation on Monday and got in. Place was full but we were seated right away. Both food and service were first rate. Definitely going back.

Our server Amanda was very attentive and helpful when we asked for her opinion on what to order. She was all around an excellent waitress! I ordered the pulled pork plate and my dad ordered the potlikker. Both were very large portions so we had enough for lunch the next day. The food is delicious and a great value for money. For dessert we had the brownie sundae which was delightfully decadent way to end the meal.

Food was disappointing this time. Overcooked chicken. Hard to get info on what “outside” seating is, turned out to be an inner room with fans.

Food was outstanding and the atmosphere, as always was Roadhouse classic. We went on a non-football Saturday with a reservation and were seated immediately. Service was efficient. My only concern was that I asked if they had any mocktails or NA drink alternatives other than water or pop, as I had a long drive home after dinner, and the server seemed to be confused. We really enjoyed our meal and will return.

After eating Zingerman's for 30 years, I finally tried Zingerman's Roadhouse for Sunday Brunch after my son's graduation. We will be back! It was fantastic in every way! Zingerman's is always fantastic.

We ordered from the brunch menu. Our eggs were over-cooked and somewhat dry. Sausage patties were very over-cooked and tough to chew. The restaurant was busy and our servers did a good job with our group of seven. We chose not to complain about the food preparation to just enjoy the company of our friends.

First time coming to the Roadhouse for brunch and it did not disappoint. Brunch menu was good and included a nice range of brunch items and lunch items. Tried the sour cream coffee cake and it was out of this world. Friends had the Rueben (always a good choice at Zingerman's) and the chili was fantastic. Overall, we loved the ambience and the food for a Saturday brunch!
