“Best steak in a long time!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2010

I stayed at the Hampton Inn which is about a block away. When I checked in they gave me a coupon for 10% off my meal so thought I would try it out. Was seated quickly as it was already close to 9:00 pm. Peanuts on the table--very good. Ordered a strip steak and it was so delicious and tender!! Wow! Best steak I've had in a long time. They gave me four rolls!! For one person! Had a salad too. Not real big but plenty since the entree was coming. I can't wait to go back again! Everything was so good and the service was great too.

We recently had a late dinner at this Texas Roadhouse. Service and food were both excellent! Would definitely eat here again when we return to this area.

“Great for Families”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2010

If you have small kids and want a family night out, this is a great fit. Kids hungry? No problem, peanuts, fresh baked rolls and cinnamon butter as you're seated. Hate over paying for a kids meal, then have to add a drink on top? No problem, kids meals are affordable and include drink. Adult meals are slightly above average and moderately priced. Drinks are over-priced. As a total family dining experience, Tex. Roadhouse gets our vote. MUST use the call ahead seating during the busy times.

“Best Service/Meal Around-Can't get a better Steak”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2009

WARNING......Show up with an empty stomach! Hand-cut steaks, award winning ribs and fresh-baked bread/rolls with cinnamon/honey butter make for "Legendary Food at a reasonable price". Service was excellent with line dancing to boot. Staff you can tell take a tremendous amout of pride in everything they do from the moment you are greeted at the door and seated to the second they bring you the bill. NO BETTER DEAL AROUND! ENJOY!

“Texas Roadhouse national prices are too high for State College, PA”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 2, 2009

The food prices were about average, just as average as the food itself was. Their drink prices, even for draft beer was outrageous! They are not in touch with what the competition sells things for, its obvious. Whats more, the area they are in have 2 other nation chain restaurants close by so I am not talking about the local stand-alone places. They need to get a grip.
