Desserts at Logan's Roadhouse

The Bottom Line

Logan's Roadhouse has the same menu for lunch and dinner. There are sandwiches, salads, burgers, steaks, ribs and seafood. My two eating buddies and I ordered two appetizers, three entrees, and two desserts. excluding beverages, tax and tip the total came to about $20 per person. Very reasonable.

Pros

  • Reasonable prices
  • Casual atmosphere
  • Family environment
  • Appetizers large enough for two

Cons

  • Chain restaurant, a con for some people
  • Local menu not the same as online menu

Description

  • Logan's Roadhouse has locations in Mesa, north Phoenix and Chandler.
  • They are open seven days per week for lunch and dinner.
  • There's a kids' menu at Logan's Roadhouse with several typical items that include french fries and a drink.
  • Logan's Roadhouse is a family-friendly restaurant, not necessarily a spot for a romantic get-together.
  • There are enough salads and sides to keep vegetarians and vegans happy here.
  • I was expecting a cross between Famous Dave's Barbecue and Outback Steakhouse. I was almost right...I think.

Guide Review - Logan's Roadhouse

We were pleasantly surprised during our visit to Logan's Roadhouse.

For our appetizers we ordered the Bayou Popcorn Shrimp ($7) on a bed of fries and the Smokin' Wings ($7). Both appetizers were large enough for two to share. There were more than 20 one-inch diameter shrimp on a bed of fries, with two sauces. Nice, but the wings stole the show (of the whole meal, maybe). Those juicy, meaty bbq half drummettes/half wings came on their skewers (hot metal!). There were 8 of them, and they were so good that I never tried the sauce that came with them.

Our entrees at Logan's Roadhouse consisted of the Onion Brew Sirloin ($11) (one of their signature dishes), the Meatloaf ($11) and a half rack of Baby Back Ribs ($12). Each dinner comes with two sides--there are more than 10 to choose from. All our sides were good; the dinner salad was fresh, the grilled vegetables, steamed vegetables, baked potato and mashed potatoes were all pleasing. All of us enjoyed our entrees. The sirloin is fairly drenched in butter, but it was tender and properly done. The baby backs didn't need to be gnawed--the meat graciously fell right off the bone at the touch of a fork. The meat loaf was different, and companion liked it, but it seemed a bit dry to me.

The Peanut Butter & Chocolate Ice Cream Pie ($4.50) with hot fudge is huge and good, but for just a taste of sweet the Fudge Slide in a little souvenir Logan's pail ($2) was enough for me.

Logan's Roadhouse doesn't have a distinctive character, in my opinion, other than the bucket of peanuts for which they are known. I did eat a peanut, and I threw the shell on the floor. After the first one, the novelty wore off for me. The yeast rolls about which Logan's boasts were attractive, but I'd rather have a hearty, grainy, crusty bread.

Going back to Logan's, Member pauldunn1292

""We eat regularly at Logan's Steakhouse."" The service is very, very good. They strive to get things right and if they make a small error they correct it immediately. The food is extremely tasty and we haven't been disappointed yet. The atmosphere is that of a normal steakhouse. A little noisy but if you expect that going in, it won't bother you. We have never eaten there without the manager talking to us about ""How are things going"". That is a welcome to his establishment and are there any problems? We are going back tomorrow night and meeting some folks who we haven't even met yet. Is that bold, No, it is a display of confidence that everything will go correctly. Try it, you'll like it.
