Big Sur Roadhouse Restaurant Review: Our most recent experience at Big Sur Roadhouse was an exercise in contrasts --- and not all for the good. Service was friendly and knowledgeable, which was beneficial since the printed menu was somewhat vague. A "Dutch baby," if you've never encountered it, is a filled pancake that comes in sweet and savory versions. The hamburger is juicy, well-seasoned medium-rare beef with sweet caramelized onions, sautéed mushrooms and a pancetta "secret sauce" that was incredibly satisfying. Hash browns with gravlax was less so --- a solid little brick of potato that was ice cold in the center; the gravlax was good, but the dish didn't really work together as a whole. We'll go back, but we'll ask a lot more questions about the menu.
