Masks are currently not required of our staff
Dear Friends and Family,
From the bottom of our biscuits, thank you for your continued support and patience during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Washtenaw County Health Department has declared a MEDIUM level of COVID-19 cases in the community, and has updated its website to reflect the change. The CDC has changed its recommenation regarding the use of masks in an indoor setting. The Roadhouse staff are currently NOT required to wear masks inside the Roadhouse.
We do continue to make everyone’s safety a priority, and will continue to assess the need for mask requirement for our staff according to the rating for Washtenaw County. We encourage all of our patrons to make a personal choice about masking when dining at the Roadhouse.
We look forward to seeing you!
thank you so much for your continued support!
The seventh member of Zingerman’s Community of Businesses, located in Ann Arbor, Mich., the Roadhouse opened in 2003 with the vision of bringing really good American food to the community, using only the best available ingredients. The Roadhouse has worked hard to create its own truly unique food culture, transforming high-quality ingredients into traditional, full-flavored dishes. Even after years of studying American foodways, the Roadhouse is only beginning to fully understand and appreciate our country’s regional food microcultures and subcultures, and the professionals who preserve them.
