Busy, busy place but the experienced waitresses had it under control. One of the bartenders, a guy, was sort of disinterested in service but our waitress was great. We split fajitas and were quite happy.

My family has visited the Roadhouse three years running on vacation in northern Michigan, and the place is always packed.

The food is standard Americanized Mexican fare - enchiladas, tacos, burritos, and fajitas, nothing too spicy (although the chile rellano has a kick). I wish they'd switch from flimsy flour tortilla chips to corn tortilla chips; that would be a better complement to the salsa. The waitstaff is friendly, and the margaritas are plenty.

All in all, this is not fine dining, but it's solid fare. We'll be here again next year.

Standard Mexican food, done well. Wait staff is efficient and friendly. Nice place to go with friends ... not open for lunch.

As a local, this is one of our favorite places to eat. The salsa is great (which they also package and sell). The only hard thing -- and I've heard this from others too - is figuring out when they're open. I work in Traverse City and so when I have a reason to be in Benzie County, eating at The Roadhouse is always tops on the list... but often I'll drive by and the place looks closed. :( That -- and the fact that they don't do take-out -- is the only reason why I gave it a four vs. a five star rating.

Highly recommend! Friendly staff, delicious food and amazing margarita's! The atomsphere is very comfortable and is even a bigger bonus if you get to eat outside and listen to the music! Eating here is a must if you love Mexican food! Go early though - they get very busy and you'll be waiting for a table if you go during normal dinner hours. But - is worth the wait!
