The Feel:

So one of the major “problems” with Cabarete you get from tourists is that service takes ages.

Another problem is that most places catered to gringos are way too expensive.

Well the RoadSide Grill just fixed both of those for you!! so there.

“Give us 15 minutes we’ll serve you breakfast, 7 days a week” they boast

It’s fast-food. Menu’s all in english soit’s easy for tourists to order, there’s a nice sound system and a TV to watch your favorite sports games here (with rumors of another big-screen coming in) and it’s the closest thing you’re going to get in this town to an American Diner.

Sure it’s not very dominican…. but if you’re feeling a little home-sick or you need some food right now, there ya go!

This is also Cabarete’s first non-smoking establishment, and they cater to your internet addiction (the password’s right on the table top menus so you don’t even have to ask!!)


The Food:

Yeah yeah, whatever… how’s the food?!

Well, really good actually. The burgers are juicy… the poutines are a good size and super cheesy, the fries are as yummy as their sign advertises, and their speedy breakfast is filling too!

We had a double cheeseburger with bacon, and a poutine. Gaby had a milkshake and it was super creamy (they put ice-cream inside…. sinful)

Yesterday I went back for more and got breakfast and a coffee and was super satisfied!

Side fried onions are free. Yup. That’s awesome, but I didn’t realize until after I scarfed down all the food… next time.

If you’re health conscious of vegetarian, don’t fret. We’ve been told they have a veggie burger on the way, and even more exciting, a salad in a bread bowl. MMMMMMMMmmmmmm. (bread provided by Dick’s bakery, so we know it’s gonna be good!)

I hope they make soup in  a bread bowl in the winter too!!


The Staff:

This place is brought to you by the lovely people at Lazy Dog, so if you’re happy with that service, you’ll be happy here!!

The lovely and always smiley Hailey was behind the counter yesterday and put a smile on my face, and you’re likely to run into Glen (one of the owners) while you’re there too.

Glen’s really into football, so if you’re here for a game you’re in the right spot.

The place is really open and diner like, so it’s easy to make small talk with the local staff flipin’ the burgers, or the people at teh tables next to you. It’s a chill sort of atmosphere.


The Whole:

As a whole this is a great addition to the Cabarete culinary landscape.

Sure nothing here is going to blow your mind because you’ve never seen it back home, quite on the contrary! It’s going to be comfortably familiar to all North Americans and served with speed, a smile, and a milkshake.

Would you like fries with that?

Did we mention prices include tax? Could they make it any easier for you? Really?!?!
