Yeah, I'd steer clear of that place. It's one thing if the roadkill is on the menu as such, but otherwise, no way would I go to that place. Years ago there was a place called The Roadkill Cafe in the Pine Barrens. The menu was flexible because it depended on the roadkill du jour. A food critic from the Philadelphia Inquirer ran across the place & actually gave it a good review. If roadkill is clearly labeled as such I don't have a problem with that, but I wouldn't eat there.

It can be just as good as cat and/or dog if cooked properly if the paint and glass is removed.

Ugh this story makes me mad for a lot of reasons. There is such a stigma attached to roadkill in this country. I honestly don't understand it. No you don't want to be picking up dead animals that's been dead for several hours.(to the person that said days carcasses do certain things after a certain time frame. If you're informed you know.) If the animal was freshly killed there was no issue. The health department didn't cite them because the animal was cut up in the parking lot. I'm sure they planned on using it for personal use, as venison has a noticeable taste, that even a yummy orange sauce wouldn't mask.

There is some risk here. It was about 10 years ago a goat was butchered by a bunch of hispanics in a restaurant in rowan county, and there was an e coli outbreak. it killed a person. Being a hunter, and having butchered 100's of animals you have to take great care when removing the organs. Meat naturally has no bacteria, but bust open the stomach or the intestines, and boom you can have it all over the meat.

Restaurant Linked to E. Coli Shut Down (illegals slaughter live goat in kitchen after hours)

I can understand why people are upset about this, but it's truly because they are uniformed. I trust that the health inspector did his job, and the carcass was handled correctly, and yes I personally have ate roadkill, and it was yummy. The last time I handled roadkill was when I lived in PA. Driving home one night we seen a dead buck on the side of the road. Poor guy was still warm. Hated to see it go to waste. I threw it in the truck, and took it home, and dressed it out. The next day I took it to a big cat rescue. There was nothing wrong with the deer. I didn't want it, but I didn't want to see it rotting on the side of the roads. Those big kitty's sure enjoyed it.

Yeah, I am willing to bet some of your roadside BBQ places have done the same thing.

Lets be honest, in today's society, taking roadkill home and eating it is something you would expect with starving third world people or on a "survivor" type T.V. show. I wouldn't eat in a restaurant where the owners would stoop to that level. I would especially be concerned with the sanitation level there. There's lots of bad germs on the side of roads that can infest a dead animal quickly.

so your basing your opinion on a stigma, and a stereotype. This was investigated, and the health inspector didn't have a problem with it. It wasn't the greatest PR move for the owner, but this really sounds a lot worse than it is. I would be more interested in seeing past inspections, and did they have any critical violations.
