Buckeye Roadhouse

February 20, 2015

Hi all! Sorry for my absence, I have been feeling a bit under the weather, but don’t worry that hasn’t stopped me from eating haha. It just means I’ve gotten a bit behind with writing. I recently visited Buckeye Roadhouse for Sunday brunch. Keep reading for all the details and don’t forget to subscribe on the right sidebar to make sure you don’t miss any delicious reviews.

The I-Like-to-be-Wrapped-Up-in-All-the-Details Version:

The first thing I noticed about Buckeye Roadhouse was the setting. It feels like a large cottage; there is a lot of green around the restaurant and the wood finishings makes everything feel very “home-y”. The path leading up to the main entrance is lined with plants and, on that day, the rays of sun made everything look particularly pretty. We were greeted warmly and shown to a table right away (without reservations). The place was full, but didn’t feel crowded because of the many windows. The space feels open and allows a lot of light in. I originally went to try the French toast because you know I’m always looking for the best French toast; however, I decided against it when our waiter was honest and mentioned it wasn’t very good.

What we ate:

  • Eggs benedict ($13.95)
  • Huevos Rancheros ($14.50)

While I realize this is just bread, I had to mention it for 2 reasons. First, the bread was good quality, which is great because I hate when nice restaurants serve mediocre bread. Second, it was warm! You don’t know how happy this makes me. I hate when you get cold bread, it tastes a million times better when served warm so kudos to Buckeye Roadhouse for paying attention to the details because it goes a long way (and I noticed)!

I ordered the eggs benedict and I can say that they are some of the best I’ve ever had. The pan-o-rama english muffins are topped with an amazingly tasty slice of rosemary ham and 2 eggs. The hollandaise sauce wasn’t too thick or overpowering, the whole thing was just amazing. This was served with 3 potato croquets which I wouldn’t say was a perfect complement to the dish, but it was a great alternative to the breakfast potatoes that restaurants always pile on the plate (I’m not a fan). Filled with potatoes and cheese, these croquets were nice and crispy on the outside with heavenly goodness inside. I can’t wait to go back and order this again!

My aunt ordered the huevos rancheros and while not super traditional, they were delicious as well! Her only complaint is that the it didn’t come out hot. I feel that the description didn’t do this dish justice. The menu reads “crispy tortilla, pasilla chile”, but really it is topped with a delicious chile relleno. This dish was good, but if you have to pick one I would definitely go with the benedict, by far my favorite!
