Rio Nido Roadhouse
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
This double-wide trailer on the outskirts of Guerneville houses an eclectic eatery serving the area's colorful, redwood-dwelling locals. Part bar and restaurant, part live music space and part gathering ground for the community—complete with gazebo and pool—the Roadhouse not only offers surprisingly good food (and a gret beer selection), but also a place for locals to gather for everything from concerts and birthday parties to weekend water aerobics. As far as the grub goes, expect solid, typical roadhouse fare such as onion rings, artichoke dip, patty melts and BBQ chicken, along with some left fielders that are worth the risk: steamed clams, tri tip, or the homemade soup du jour, made with whatever's in the kitchen.
