My wife and I were on our way home from visiting my son at college and we had always wondered why the parking lot was always so packed at this place.
Well, we got our answer. For the money, it is hard to get the quality steak and service that we received one weekday night at Texas Roadhouse. Our salads were fresh, well proportioned and quick to the table. Then, when the waitress delivered my steak, I thought maybe she messed up my order and brought me a 16 oz (instead of the 12oz that i ordered). No she said, its definately our 12 oz. And I ate every bite ! And by the way, I ordered it medium and it was perfectly pink in the middle, my wife ordered med/med well and it had just a slight pink strip in the very center. Don't know if the chef got lucky or if he/she just really cares and knows what they are doing.
Oh yeah, I'll be back.

There is a line out the door when they open at 4, but I just can't figure out why - perhaps because they are still relatively new. We were a party of two, so we sat at the bar so we could be more relaxed. Boy we were wrong.

Their business model is clearly all about turning over tables and this is reflected in the dining experience. We were given menus before our drink order was taken, and the Bartender/Server must have asked us every 15 seconds if we were ready to order. We ordered an appetizer and dinner. The appetizer arrived and within a minute our dinners followed. Almost as soon as our dinner was set down we started getting the "are you done yet" cues - "is there anything else", "here's your check", etc...We looked around and saw others being treated the same way.

Food was just ok. Steaks were good, but my ribs (combo) were burned and charcoal crusty. Probably won't go back, at least for awhile. If you want a relaxing dinner, this isn't the place.

This is a spanking new establishment that just opened up this summer. I took my family and Inlaws there for a special treat while they were in town. I had been to a T.R. only one other time and remembered it being good so I was excited to get one in our town. Initially everything was going as normal with a long wait period since it's always packed. The place looked good inside and just as it should. The staff was good and not any problems there. My issue was with the quality of the food. I ordered a steak of course, expecting it to be exceptional being that this place is a steakhouse and all. Well, not so lucky. I've had better cuts of meat on my own table at home so that just makes this an overpriced hunk of meat. It was tough and not cooked well at all. I expected so much more but I will not be getting steak here ever again if I even return. I think that's a huge blow for a restaurant when the main dish they are known by is terrible.
