Blackburn’s Roadhouse started a year ago by two sisters, known collectively in the community as “the Blackburn sisters.” Their establishment serves both food and alcohol. Breakfast is offered three days per week and lunch and dinner is served daily except for Tuesdays when the business is closed.

Except for the three mornings that the Blackburn’s opens for breakfast, the business is open from 10 AM to 1 AM. The 6,000 square foot space allows for a separate dining area and bar and allows the proprietors to offer their establishment as a party space, wedding rehearsal dinner or company luncheons.

Food is American casual and a buffet offers multiple choices for any diner. Blackburn’s Roadhouse is described by the owners as “family friendly” until 10 PM and “motorcycle friendly.” An outdoor cookout is offered during the warm months every Sunday with all food grilled by the staff.
