Popular place with fun atmosphere

If you want a good steak at a reasonable price and lively atmosphere this is it. It's very popular and catches nearby hotel traffic so be prepared to wait a bit, especially on the weekends.

It is a busy place so often end up with a long wait. You can call ahead and get a place in line but I don' think they have actual reservations. Not the best for driving by and deciding to stop. Food is good, staff is pleasant but wish they could do something about the noise level.

We enjoyed a great meal with our young son. I would definitely recommend using the call ahead seating, we got right in and didn't have to wait. The steak was cooked perfectly with great seasoning. The sides were fresh, portions were huge. The desert was excellent but we couldn't eat it all.

Went here last night and had an excellent waitress. The manager was even kind enough to make rounds and make sure his guests were enjoying their meals. Our food was very good. I do wish my food had been a bit warmer, but still delicious. My husband's steak was cooked perfectly. Will return! Cheers!

Great food, fantastic steaks, good selection of beer, I really have to give it to them on the taste/seasoning of their meat. However, there has to be a point in time when Texas Roadhouse listens to its customers: This restaurant is too darn loud!! And I'm deaf in one ear so that really says something when a partially deaf person... More

For the money, atmosphere and food, there isn't a steakhouse around that has consistently great food. It's not a high end steakhouse, more family oriented but it's taste sure comes close.

This Texas Roadhouse has the same quality food and friendly, attentive service as all of the others that I have been at. I usually get there early to avoid the crowds. I have eaten here several times and have never been disappointed.

This is becoming what you would expect when you go to a chain style steak house. The food is good with medium prices and good selections. Their appetizers are beginning to lean toward the norm also with onions, mushrooms, etc. with usually a specialty of the house. Peanuts galore and hot rolls are nice while waiting on your food.
