A roadhouse south of Santa Rosa?

gabriel Sep 6, 2007 06:10 PM

Help me with my memory, Chowhounds! There was a 'road-house' style restaurant a little south of Santa Rosa (and west of the 101) that I ate at a few years back. It was in a very old building, somewhat historical I believe. Pretty good food, not GREAT, but I really liked the overall feeling of eating there. Can anyone help with the name? Thanks in advance!!

      That would be Washoe House in Petaluma, established in 1859. Here's a recent post,

      Fried chicken, biscuits, buffalo burger, and pie are the most popular (and reliable) items.

        I've completly missed this place before. I found a long review of it (undated) at http://tinyurl.com/2hb8au . it says "Open daily for lunch and dinner. 707.795.4544".

          If you want to really slum it.... check out Red's off the Highway 116 going towards Stony Point... will be on the right side.

            Are you talking about Red's Recovery Room? They serve food? I always got the impression it was just a bar, albiet an ironically named one.

              Just peanuts or something like that.... it didn't seem like the OP was after food but rather the atmosphere. Red's would be perfect before or after the House.

                Just the THOUGHT of Red's serving food turns my stomach lol
