Our Story

Roadside Restaurant was built in 1961.

Known at the time as Sportsmen Café.


The Café burned down on Sunday August 9, 1970 when grease in the boiler ignited. Flames spread into the grill hood and the roof. Evan though the fire department arrived promptly, there was little to save.


The restaurant was rebuilt and opened in December of 1971 with a new name - Roadside Restaurant- to which it is known today.


The Roadside Restaurant soon became the "place to go" after re-opening with hometown cooking and their signature Caramel and Cinnamon rolls. And remains that today.
