Fifteen years of American foodways, one full-flavored evening.

What better way to celebrate reopening after our kitchen tune-up than with a night showcasing our Roadhouse favorites? In 2003, we opened our doors with the vision of bringing really good American food to the community, using only the best available ingredients. We’ve worked hard to create our own truly unique food culture, transforming these ingredients into superior flavors by studying American foodways! We love to explore, and when we do find the best America has to offer, we bring it right here to Ann Arbor.
