This restaurant was suggested to me by a friend. My family of two adults and three children tried it out for supper last night. I think the booths are quite interesting but the restaurant and the table area is very tight knitted. There are a lot of people and a lot of workers, basically shoulder-to-shoulder. I think they need to... More

We love the Texas Roadhouse. Wait is a little long, but if you remember, call ahead. We always forget and end up waiting in our car for a bit. You can sit and enjoy peanuts while you wait. Rolls are a HUGE hit with our family. I've never had a bad piece of meat and the portions are plenty.

Normally Texas Roadhouse rocks. If your in a group of 4 or less the food will be great. If your in a large group like I was last night you're going to have a bad experience. Waited 45 min for a table shoved together with booth. Not enough settings for all the people. One ate on the corner of the... More

Meet a work colleague here for dinner. Restaurant was very crowded, but we didn't have to wait too long for a table. The service was good and our waitress was very friendly and constantly checking in on us. The atmosphere is loud. Food was good, though I never did get one of my sides. The steak was cooked just right.... More

We stopped here on a late night return to Lincoln, NE, and received wonderful service an hour before they closed. My steak & baked potato really hit the spot while my wife enjoyed the salmon. Glad we made the stop.

The food wasn't the greatest compared to other Texas Roadhouse we have visited. The drinks were excellent and the services was extremely slow, but friendly.

It is like most Texas Roadhouses. It has good food and people seem to enjoy the staff signing happy birthday to them. It is right off hwy 35/85 on the north side of the road. A fun place for all or part of the family

My friend and I picked up dinner 'to go' so we could eat in the hotel room while relaxing before a race the next morning. My friend tried to order a SWEET potato over the phone. 3 times the waitress taking our order asked her if she wanted butter for her BAKED potato. My friend had to correct her 3... More
