mudbug there is another coffee hours here in Eugene that I llike better and they offer free online service to customers which is why my daughter and I go there. They offer a better variety of eats and they toast the bagel, add lox and onions to the cream cheese and make the best pinninis in town.

Contradicting myself here, but our local Roadhouse is always packed; however, the time we ate there the service and food were terrible.
The Roadhouse here in Eugene runs hot and cold. I have eaten there three times and once was great, once good and the last time awful. The first two times I had their ribs, the last time a steak and it belonged on the sole of my shoe.
Being that I have worked in restaurants, both fast food and fine dining (even though it was a pub also, they had fantastic food!), I think it depends on a lot of things. You could have gone on an off night, when the main cook didn't show up..... or the waitress.. or the bartender.. or even the dishwasher. When one person doesn't show up for work, it affects lots of things. I know, I had to fill in for people that didn't bother to call or show up. Other things could be a newly hired cook that "claims" he knows what he's doing, someone forgetting to order something, and just an all-around bad day. Most of my experiences with The Roadhouse have been great! BUT, I can remember people I have served at Pizza Hut that had a bad experience......... even the finest restaurant in the area has given unfavorable results.
