“Better than expected”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2013 via mobile

The service and food was exceptionally good. It's a big place that looks like it turns over a lot of food and initially I was concerned that it was going to be more of a fast food chain approach. The end result was much better than I thought it would be. The salad bar is amazing!!

“Always great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

One of my favorite restaurant in the area. Great food and great service. Crab cakes are a treat, the tomahawk is cocked to perfection and the cowboy steak will satisfy your hunger. The place is easy to reach, plenty of parking space even on a busy night

“Left a bad taste in my mouth...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013 via mobile

I was staying in a nearby hotel when I decided one night to go over to Taste of Texas to get an order to take back to my room. The place was packed every time I passed it so I figured all those steak-savy Texans knew what they were doing. Wrong! The ribeye I was served was inferior in terms of taste, texture and tenderness. AND, at T of T they don't serve your average sized steak; to get the ribeye I had to order a minimum 16 oz. cut; and believe me, quantity did NOT make up for quality. Take my advice and "steer" clear of Taste of Texas.
