This was likely the best service I've every received at a restaurant. Each person working acted genuinely happy to be there. They seemed to enjoy each other's company and were eager to work. No one was just standing around. Our food was delicious, served promptly, and our server, Jason, was pleasant without being overbearing.

I am here in Iowa because of work. This is the first time I've been in Iowa. I've eaten at Texas Roadhouse's all over the country because of my job responsibilities. I tend to go to them because I know it's always delicious. This held true again at this Texas Roadhouse. I got the small filet smothered a baked potato... More

Texas Roadhouse is probably the most reasonably priced steaks/steak tips you can find. I love to get the steak tips which has mushrooms and gravy along with mashed potatoes. It is really good. The salad comes in a chilled bowl and is good too--then the rolls and honey butter are amazing. The only negative is it is loud and hard... More

Texas Roadhouse has great food for a very reasonable price. Never can go wrong eating their rolls, love the spread that comes with it!!! Ate here a few times during our stay at the hotel. Loved their pork sandwiches and hamburgers. Will be back again!

At about 5 pm on a Friday evening, the place is jammed, but the full-service bar counter is empty. I can barely hear the waitstaff ask for my order over the very loud country music. (They did introduce themselves and even remembered my name when they inquired how I liked the food.) However, the Lagunitas IPA is cold and hoppy,... More

The first time I went here it wasn't so great however we gave it a second chance and had a wonderful time the food was delicious and the service was fast and efficient. Harlee was the reason our second visit went well. Ask for her, she is amazing and polite as can be. This was a great trip for us... More

To start off there are peanuts in the shell to snack on. Great biscuits & homemade cinnamon butter. If you like steak, this is the place to go. You can choose your own cut & how you like it grilled. Can have a hardy meal with meat & potatoes, or the steak salad is excellent if you want something on... More

This is my all time favorite restaurant. Not badly priced, and free buns with delicious cinnamon butter! Any time I have the chance I eat here, no matter where I'm at. The food is always great and the wait staff is always very friendly! I will recommend this to anyone and everyone! The only problem is that it can be... More

We don't have a Texas Roadhouse near our home, so we made sure to stop on our visit to Des Moines. This restaurant was right by our hotel. We called & reserved a spot, then took a nap while we waited for our time (90 minute wait). When we arrived, we were seated within 3 minutes (although the lobby and... More
