Texas Roadhouse is usually busy and noisy, but the food is so good! We love the steaks, the buttered rolls, and the vegetables. I tried the Smothered Country Fried Steak this time and it was great for a change from grilled steak.

It was just the two of us so we were seated right away on a Saturday afternoon. The peanuts are good to snack on while you wait on your meal. The rolls and cinnamon butter are always amazing and fresh. I ordered a medium rare steak w/sauteed mushrooms. My first few bites of mushrooms were a tad salty. The steak... More

Pretty good steaks for a franchise, but cannot emphasize how horrible the waiting and seating is. This has been a special occasion place that my family has gone to for years, but not so much anymore. They squeeze so many people into tiny booths, it kills any enjoyment that the food brings. It's akin to eating a big meal on... More

The wait is really long on weekends but the food is always worth the wait. They offer peanuts for snacking while waiting. The food is always wonderful and their prime rib is amazing. They serve unlimited fresh rolls that melt in your mouth. You won't go away hungry.

We come here once or twice a year and it never disappoints. I have 2 children, 6 and 8, and they love it. There is a wide variety on the menu and I like that they have 'ranger' meals that are priced for kids with slightly larger portion size. We've always had attentive servers.

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
