Legendary Food, Legendary Service(R), and Legendary Fun! At Texas Roadhouse, we take pride in everything we do from hand-cut steaks and fall-off-the-bone ribs, to some pretty sweet margaritas. And we do it all with one goal 4 to give your family a place to go for great food and good times at a fantastic price.
I have been calling your restaurant all day and i get no answer so im choosing to go somewhere else so i will not be able to rate you on anything other then you not answering the phone and its not good.
i am a steady customer and this is my favorite place to go for steak i always have the 16 oz rib eye which is very flavorable. There have been a couple of times where i was not happy but the staff took care of it and made sure it was right
Prices are reasonable and the free hot rolls and peanuts are great
After not visiting Roadhouse since they first opened because of the noise level I was pleasantly surprised that you could actually talk to the people at the same table, not so when they first opened. I told the manager at the time I wouldn't be back for that reason. Our party of 8 had just gotten their food and were maybe 1/2 way through the meal when along comes the gals with the birthday saddle and ice cream that they give to birthday person. My first thought was, WOW we aren't even anywhere near done with our food but oh well. So after doing their thing they ask if we would like dessert or to go containers, WHAT! My comment being that how would we know that we were still eating and how would we know if we wanted either. So our waitress Kathy, says, I can see that. My response was slow and didn't want to ruin my granddaughters birthday but with the amount of restaurants out there to spend my money, you can bet I will not be going back to Roadhouse for probably another 2-3 years. I wasn't going to leave a tip for Kathy but my family left one and with an attitude like her's, if and when I do go back I'll be surprised to see her still working there. Also asked when they would be dancing again and again got a smart remark.
If you don't like a loud atmosphere, then this is not the restaurant for you. But if you like a FUN place to take the kids to, where you can all eat steak at an affordable price, then you will LOVE the Texas Roadhouse! My 2 daughters and I decided to try it when the guys were out of town. We arrived around 7:00 on a Friday night and didn't feel like waiting 60 minutes so I promised the girls we would go back the next night. On Saturday night we arrived at 4:00 and were seated right away! It seemed like the wait started just around 5:00.
The girls loved the menu since they have not only a chld's menu but also menu items for the child with a slightly bigger appetite. This was perfect for them! They were able to get a smaller sized steak at a children's menu price. And I loved the prices on the regular menu! The prime rib arrived just as I ordered it.
The girls loved the peanuts and being able to put the shells on the floor. And the slightly hokey line dance by the wait staff kept them entertained. And Cotton Eye Joe has now been added to all mp3 players.
Besides a great meal at a great price, one of my favorite surprises - sweet tea! I didn't know that there was anyplace in the Midwest that actually knew how to make sweet tea.
We went back 2 weeks later taking my husband and son along. Since my husband is not a country music fan, he wasn't crazy about the atmosphere but agreed about the food and the prices.
We will definitely be going back!
My wife and I had stopped in to dine at the Texas Roadhouse the weekend before, but there had been a long wait, so we went elsewhere.
This time, I called ahead to add my name to the waiting list (no reservations accepted). When we arrived, the 35-45 minute wait worked out just about right -- we were seated within a minute or two..
As we were escorted to our table (over a path of crushed peanut shells), the hostess asked if it was our first visit and gave an overview of the menu (steaks, ribs, others good stuff, etc.) Because of the loud background music and shouted conversations, I could only understand about half of her monologue. (BTW, my hearing is normally fine -- or was). We were given a basket of rolls when seated (for use as earplugs perhaps?).
Upon arriving at the booth, we encountered my pet peeve -- I am a big guy, and I absolutely detest being wedged into a narrow booth with an immobile center table. Oh well, no extreme rib eating here or I might never escape the booth!!!
After a brief search for menus (they are on they are on the table by the condiments), my wife and I opened up the menus. My wife is night blind and the dim lighting at the table was giving her problems, so I read the menu to her. This might have been romantic, except I was shouting across the table (above the noise and music) so she could understand what I was saying.
The menu selection is good and the prices are on average or slighty better than Applebees', TGI Friday's, or Chili's. Priced at the higher end of the menu was a good selection of steaks (available in a variety of serving sizes). Unlike Applebee's, the chili or side salad could be ordered as a side dish included with the entree.
After reviewing the menu, I selected the smothered chicken and my wife chose the fried catfish. While waiting, we were brought a bucket of peanuts to munch on (now I knew where the shells on the floor came from). The salad arrived promptly and was followed in due time by the entrees.
The food and was hot and presented nicely. My wife had four or five large chunks of catfish which guaranteed we would be having leftovers. In contrast, my smothered chicken consisted of one small chicken breast and a few mushrooms partially covered by a single slice of cheese. This was quite different from the similar entree served at Applebee's.
Except for the deafening background noise and the completely unintelligible line dance performance by the servers, the meal proceeded mercifully well. I knew it was time to go when my wife asked for a to-go box for her leftovers and shouted a question inquiring if the local custard stand was still open.
The cost of the meal with soft drinks was $25.17 (excluding tip). Despite being very busy, we received excellent attention from the wait staff and the food was hot and tasty. The noise situation made the meal unpleasant and is the primary reason we will not be returning.
We here dined at 7:30pm on Saturday, September 9, 2006.
