Saying Goodbye ..

Saying Goodbye ..

How does one say goodbye to a man larger then life,  a man who's personality and personal touches is in every square inch of the Roadhouse Grille?

Dwayne in Dec 2012

The Roadhouse Grille, as well as our Community and most definitely his family and friends, lost a great man Feb 16/16. Dwayne was diagnosed with Mesothelioma in July 2015 (exposure from asbestos 40-45 years ago) and was given 1 month to live ... being the fighter that he is he beat those odds and survived until this past month. He truly fought a courageous battle.

Dwayne and Sharon purchased the Roadhouse Grille together Feb 2002 .. together they took a little diner and turned it into what you see today.. a very busy and prosperous niche independent restaurant. Dwayne was not afraid of hard work and was often seen jumping on the garbage bins and hanging from ladders or roofs giving the building just a little shimmy here and there. They loved the community aspect of being involved in the South Surrey/White Rock area and gave to many local charities and started the Youth Talent Search Competition (hosted here at the Roadhouse Grille) wanting to give the local youth a platform and stage and encourage them in their talents. 

Dwayne was so many things to so many people mere words do not seem enough to describe him. He was the center of his wife of almost 45 years, world. He was the forever big strong daddy to his 4 daughters. He was the fun generous loving papa/grandpa to his 13 grandchildren and almost 8 great grandchildren (1 is due in April/16). He was encouraging to so many business people. He was the light to so many in the dark. He was a giver to a degree that is rare and precious. He was so very very very loved.

Welcome to our New site!

Thank you for taking the time to read our website and this first blog post!

Here on our News Page is where we can be a little more interactive and let you know more about us and what’s NEW and why we do what we do... COME ON IN!

Let’s start with a few “Do You Know’s?”

 

Did you know that EVERY pot of coffee is made with fresh ground coffee beans from a local roaster?

We proudly serve Better Blends coffee and we grind the beans for every single pot as we make it .. this means our coffee is as fresh as it can possibly be! So not only is it fresh, it’s from a local family supplier and that just feels good .. feels good and tastes good .. WIN WIN!

Did you know that we do NOT have a deep fryer?

our PanFries available everyday until 3:00pm

Did you know that ALL of our soups are Gluten Free?

our AWARD winning Borscht is not only Gluten Free but it is also Vegetarian as well
