Envision the perfect divey watering hole out on a country lane, where the bartenders are old hands who pour the drinks stiff and the lighting is coolly dim. Now add a full menu of hearty, from-scratch pub fare, with an emphasis on crazy-big burgers and sandwiches like the Johnny Cash burger, with pepper-seasoned beef, white cheddar cheese, applewood-smoked bacon, house-pickled pep-
pers, onion crisps and barbecue sauce. Great news: You’ve just conjured up Broderick Roadhouse. You won’t want to miss items like the inventive dressed fries (one iteration is topped with banh mi fillings like pork, jalapeños and pickled vegetables) or the duck burger with house-made fig jam, garlic aioli, arugula, red wine vinaigrette, onion crisps and a cheddar cheese skirt.
