Hwy 61 Roadhouse & Kitchen
The section of U.S. Highway 61 from New Orleans to St. Louis is commonly called The Blues Highway . This section stretches through the agriculturally and culturally fertile land of the Mississippi Delta. It is said that American music, as we know it, traveled and developed up the river. From the Zydeco and Jazz of New Orleans to the Urban Blues of Memphis' Beale Street to the piano based St. Louis Blues, great music has spanned this route. The combination of the rhythmic sounds of the slaves and their instruments of the new world gave America its roots of unique musical styles that have topped the charts and soothed souls for centuries.
EAT SOMEWHERE ELSE, The prices are very hi on Beer, and the mixed drinks are even higher, ,Food was bland, Took forever, and at night it s so dark you have to use a flash light to read the menu. No prices on the drinks, We ordered 10 heracanes, COST $8.00 bucks each, and they were watered down, as I drank 4 of them and felt nothing $80.00 Plus tax, for just those drinks alone, what a RIPOFF. If you ever go .I suggest you buy a bottle of beer, The Food was Bland ,and not worth the price. I tryed to warn my friends, but they wanted to see a band that was playing. 1/2 way through, 3 people sent back their orders, and ordered something else.And were not happy with the taste. The Band was good, As we left everybody agreed the food sucks. I think it s pre cooked then put in a frig or frozen, then reheated when you order. They need to fire the cook and hire a new cook , print a menu,with larger print,or add a few more lights, and lower their prices on drinks and put 1 shot in each drink, and stop watering down the booze. 3 Friends ordered Shoots of Jack Daniels, all 3 said ,THE JACK DANIELS TASTED, WATERED DOWN. 1 ordered a shot of Grey Goose, And called the waitress and said I ordered GREYGOOSE, She replied that was what it is. He looked over and said ,YEAH with water added. This could be a good place. But I wont hold my breath. I have talked to a lot of people in Webster Groves, That ate there,and said they woulden t go back. And I don t blame them. The few good posts must be from people that work there. None of the people I know ever posted a review,
Was a favorite and frequented very often but I was so disapointed by treatment I will never go back.You decide. I went by myself on a Saturday afternoon looking to grab a quick lunch and person who was sitting people told me that they were too busy and I'd have to come back since there was no room to sit at the bar, I pointed out to him 3 empty tables (2 that sat two and 1 that sat four) and said I would be done quickly. He said they were doing a crawfish boil and he could not tie up a table for one. I asked a waiter if the person sitting people was the manager or the owner as I wanted to let someone know about this and he told me that was the owner sitting people. Oh well, if they are going to disrespect me when I'm by myself why in the world would I ever take clients or my family there in the future? Too bad, you not only lost a good customer but one who will tell others how you treat people.
I really enjoy the live music here! I've been here on several different occasions and the food taste/quality must depend on the cook they have on staff. My first experience was not a good memory, but later I found I like it better if I order the sauce on the side. The roadhouse chicken was great. (but it may be different next time.) Most of all, I love to go and hear the different talent that performs on Open Mic night (Tuesdays). I would prefer to see more menu options or some changes on the food options. It's a little pricey on the food in my opinion. But when the music is Alvin Jett, Matt Davis, Darrow Washington, etc etc it helps to OVERLOOK the food issues.
This is our favorite restaurant. We take all of our out of town friends there. I haven't always had the best service, but the food has always been excellant. The pan fried chicken and the steak medalions are out of this world. I almost always get the green beans on the side. I keep trying and failing to recreate them at home. I wasn't keen on the red beans and rice, but the baked beans are some of the best that I've ever tasted.
We have been here 4 or 5 times and pretty much every time I have been in heaven. BBQ chicken, sweet potato pie, baked mac and cheeses--better sides than the typical restaurant. Good atmosphere. Many different beers by pitcher (including Blue Moon). During the week Alvin Jett is great to see and also have acts like Kim Massie come in from time to time. This is one of my favorite restaurants in St. Louis.
I visited this place on a Saturday afetrnoon and the service and atmosphere was fine. Actually the service was great very accomodating but the food was lacking. It was not bad, it just wasn't good. The sauces and Rouxs seemed to be missing something. The BBQ sauce had a slightly burnt flavor to it as did the gumbo. The menu sounds very exciting, the portions were very satisfactory, but the food just missed the mark, with just a little tinkering on somethings this could be a must go to place in St. Louis
Have been there four times now in the last 2 months, each time with a party of 4, and on the whole haven't been disappointed yet. Fairly typical roadhouse fare, but done well and consistently. Service was very good on all but one visit. Sat right beside the stage one evening (literally) as the live band set up and thought my evening was about to be spoiled, but turned out to be a great evening and the noise was easily manageable.
The atmosphere and food choices are that rare blend that works for families with kids as well as college age, and mature adults equally. If you have guests in town or need to entertain others it's an easy choice to insure that everyone can be satisfied.
FYI, if you get the wings definitely get the hottest version. The others are good but without any heat to speak of. And the new tamale appetizer was not something I can recommend.
Had read good things and had seen on tv good reports about Roadhouse, so, I was excited about going and trying out their menu. Well, unfortunately, my girlfriend and I went on a Sunday at lunch time and they have started a Sunday Brunch. No signs about the buffet outside. The hostess seating us, did not tell us that the buffet was the only offering and we couldn't order off the menu. The quality of the food was what one would expect from food being kept warm by flame. I was sorely disappointed. I will give them another shot but most DEFINITELY not on a Sunday from 10am -2pm.
