After getting some bad news at work this week, some friends and I decided we should get together this Friday for a drink or two. My buddy suggested we head out to the Walker Roadhouse on the corner of Leonard and Remembrance Rd in Walker. I’d never been there before, and I’m always open to try new places.
We met up after work at the restaurant as planned. Luckily, we beat the Friday evening rush and were seated right away (the place was packed by the time we left). I ordered up a Guinness as we began to chat and look over the menu. This night was about kicking back after a tough week, spending time with my friends and enjoying the conversation more so than it was about the place we decided to go or the food to eat.
So, you’re probably wondering, why I am blogging about the Walker Roadhouse then? Well, it just so happened that the food was fantastic – I only wish I would have tried the sweet potato fries! We were pretty deep in conversation, so I quickly scanned the large menu selection, and decided on the turkey pretzel sandwich. You’ve probably seen these before at other restaurants – some sliced turkey on a pretzel roll. Nothing too crazy. I must say though, the sandwich was excellent. A nice soft pretzel roll with a load of turkey, topped off with lettuce, onion, and a slice of tomato – it just hit the spot.
The Walker Roadhouse has a nice atmosphere, the prices are reasonable, they have a huge menu selection, and the food is great. What more could you ask for? I only wish my wife could have been there to enjoy it with me. Hopefully next time.
To my friends who joined me this evening – I had a great time and hope that we have more of these opportunities to get together in the future. Only next time without a “reason”!
