    Roadhouse Barbecue: Great American Barbecue

    by ugothai Written Nov 21, 2008

    Trying to find authentic American food in Bangkok isn’t always easy but there’s one place where you can count on it and that’s at Roadhouse Barbecue, located on the corner of Surawong and Rama IV Roads. This three-story restaurant/bar is home to great barbecue dishes as well as a large selection of American favorites from burgers and steaks to soups and sandwiches.

    But the real stars of the menu here are the barbecued specialties starting with ribs smoked with mesquite wood – imported from the U.S. – and including chicken smoked with hickory wood, pork for pulled pork sandwiches and even salmon smoked with apple wood. You can get a half or full rack of ribs or a chicken and ribs combo dish, all of which are served with potatoes and cole slaw made from an old North Carolina recipe.

    And although the barbecue gets the most attention, they actually serve more burgers here than anything else. You can get yours with three different kinds of cheese as well as toppings like Grilled onions, smoked bacon, sautéed mushrooms and grilled peppers. And there’s a new addition to the burger menu too, and although it’s not strictly American, it’s still delicious. We’re talking about the Wagyu beef burger, Wagyu coming originally from Japan (it’s a cousin to Kobe beef) although this is actually raised in Australia. It’s rich and tasty, wherever it comes from and definitely worth checking out.

    As for more American food, the menu also contains sandwiches such as a Philly cheese steak, a “Texas-style” beef brisket sandwich, a chipotle pulled pork sandwich, a three-cheese grilled cheese and tomato, a BLT with apple-smoked bacon, a fish sandwich, a grilled sausage sandwich with pepper and onions. Well, you get the idea. They cover a lot of bases here.

    They’re also very proud of their chili and they should be since it won an award in a stateside competition a while back sanctioned by the Chili Appreciation Society International. In addition to the chili pot here there’s also a number of soup pots simmering all the time and they’re full of roasted red Pepper and tomato soup, black bean soup and a real New England seafood chowder.

    There are a lot of other menu items here including steaks, seafood, some pastas and even a great grilled pork chop. It’s not all about food here, though. First, there’s Thailand’s largest selection of draft beers which also happen to be the coldest in Bangkok according to a magazine poll last year.

    Next, there’s live entertainment almost every night downstairs after the dinner hour. On the second floor is another dining room that can be used for private functions or parties. And finally, on the third floor is Roadhouse’s version of a sports bar with plenty of TV screens and lots of games to play including foosball, video golf and soccer and pool on an authentic Brunswick championship table.

    So there are a lot of reasons to visit Roadhouse Barbecue and while the barbecue may be the most publicized of the attractions here don’t forget about everything else, especially the great service and friendly atmosphere.

    Ribs are the real deal here. Burgers are big sellers at Roadhouse. Steaks are also available. Nachos are one of the Tex-Mex dishes. Lamb from New Zealand is on the menu.
