Cody's Roadhouse: What's the storey?

johnb Nov 9, 2007 04:01 PM

There is a branch of this Florida chain about to open in my small town in NC. Does this place have any redeeming merit? It appears to be a standard dinner house with an overpowering road/auto theme.

I'd like to know what's in store before any of my displaced Floridian neighbors decides to drag me in there.

    Never heard of Cody's Roadhouse.Will have to check out their website if there is one.
    What you might do is go there for breakfast if they offer it and try it out.Never hurts to try,
    and that way you find out before the neighbors take you there.

        Thanks Holly. I have their menu (they are handing out paper ones before opening) and had looked at the website, but I was hoping somebody has some honest comment on the food. To be honest, I'm not hopeful, but since the options are somewhat limited where I am, it would be interesting to know.

        I was there during the christmas holiday and I went to this restaurant in Ocala, Florida. The food was delicious and I never seen ribs so big. This place is great and I am looking for to it coming to north carolina.

        The food is similar to Longhorn or Texas Roadhouse - typical chain steaks. Not awful, just not special.

        BUT, the one near us offers a "bar burger" made from the trimmings from the steaks. It's not on the menu - you just have to ask. I think it costs $2. It is delicious! Add a side of fries for a couple more bucks, and you have a great, if simple, meal for fast food prices.

        Just remembered - you have to be seated at the actual bar to order this.
