My final take
The Washington County area is known being hard working. Most people in this area do not want overly priced drinks or expensive food with diminishing value. What they do want is fair prices on food and drink for their hard-earned money. Bavington Roadhouse caters to its customers and delivers on these principles. As their slogan says, stop in for “good food, good friends, good times.”
