We were curious about the steak restaurant beside a gas station along Ortigas Avenue Extension in Taytay, Rizal. We had passed by the area quite frequently the past months as we monitored the construction of our soon-to-be home in Antipolo but we had never had the chance to eat there. We only speculated that it must be a good enough restaurant judging from our observation that it appeared to be usually full whenever we drove past it. We finally got the chance to sample their food one weekend last January.
The Roadhouse Grill along Ortigas Extension is a straightforward, no frills steak restaurant. The menu is not complicated and unpretentious. I used that last word as some other restaurants have lots of items not their menus, indicating different kinds of steak but then they all seem to be the same taste and texture. That is, it doesn't really matter if you order sirloin or tenderloin as you won't be able to tell the difference. In other words, they don't pretend to be in the league of Outback or other more reputable steak restaurants.

We enjoyed our meal at Roadhouse Grill. The tenderloin and pork chop were cooked just right and served within a reasonable time. The surprise was their salad, which we thought was really good given the fresh ingredients. The lettuce wasn't soggy and the mix of mangoes and crab sticks were just right to go with the meat dishes we ordered. What's more is that prices are very reasonable so it won't hurt your pockets to eat here from time to time.-
