American Roadhouse Restaurant Review

: In 2012, Emile Blau bought American Roadhouse and refined its focus to specialize in breakfast and lunch. We like the red flannel hash with soft-poached eggs and the multi-grain pancakes (gluten-free pancakes are part of the line-up, too), and the crab cake and the Florentine versions of Benedicts. Breakfast is served all day --- the place closes at 3 p.m. --- but lunch brings a variety of sandwiches, including a burger made with turkey. Assorted fresh vegetables may compose a plate of their own, but skip the honey-sweetened collard greens. There’s a generous kids' menu as well. The few desserts highlight classic Southern sweets, from banana pudding to pecan pie. A value-priced wine list is available, and good coffee is made from freshly ground beans.
