This Texas Roadhouse is right across the cul-de-sac from our motel which means we can walk there and not have to drive. That was great in itself! Great food and atmosphere as always and the service was very friendly. Thanks again Texas Roadhouse!

We have been to this Texas Roadhouse a few times, the Kids wanted to have dinner there, so we called ahead and were told it would be 15-20 minutes for a table of 5 plus a high chair. We arrived 15 minutes after calling ahead, we ended up waiting for 35 minutes and left without dinner. The behavior of tired and hungry young children cannot stand a long wait.

We watched table after table get seated, we were close enough to hear that they didn’t call ahead and didn’t wait.

I went up and asked the young man how long it would be until we were seated after we had been waiting 20 minutes or so. He said “You have a pager?” I could not tell if he was being a smart A—or if he was that dim. He indicated that they had picked a table for 6 for us and that one table of people was not interested in leaving quickly.”

A note here is that they have high chairs that secure on to the tables for booths, they work nicely and we have used these before, they have a fair number of these booths.

So instead of seating us at any number of other tables or a booth they kept filling them up with people as they came. When I saw them seat a new family that walked in at one of those booths I asked my wife and she was also exasperated by the wait. We gave them one last chance to seat us and they could not. We took our hungry and tired children elsewhere we were seated right away, for a fantastic meal.

So calling ahead is a total joke, I simply cannot understand this whole experience. How can you seat table after table when there is only one family in your waiting area and not say – what about them?

Finally, I would say that we have been through this call ahead and still wait for everyone BS before, but it was never so blatant. I have learned my lesson and will not go back to this restaurant and perhaps the chain. I hope this review saves a similar headache or two.

p.s. They have peanuts to snack on while you wait. But we did not allow our children to eat the peanuts after watching several people get their table called and come back and throw a handful of peanuts back into the communal bucket. There was no scoop or bags. Since that was gross and we were not expecting a long wait, so we played it safe…]

We have eaten at Texas Roadhouse a couple of times and have had a wonderful experience almost every time. The sourdough bread that you are greeted with, is hot, yummy and absolutely fresh out of the oven!

My favourite is the Smothered Chicken with Steak Fries, Mashed Potato and Corn! The Steaks are also very well cooked to order!

And you can almost always listen to a warm "Yeehaw" for someone whose birthday is being celebrated; Yes, you can join in on the "Yeehawing" too! :-)

-- A place good for a visit with family, children and friends!!

We ate there on a Thursday evening this time and it was perfect. They were busy, but not so busy that you had to wait or felt rushed. We had time for cocktails, appetizers and a leisurely dinner with friends. We will eat here again when we are in the area.

Ive been here and other locations over 50 times and Ive never had a bad experience! The food is always amazing and cooked to order! Their steaks are mouth watering everytime! My favorite is the filet but the sirlon is yummy too! Their hot bread with homemade butter is delicous to snack on while you wait for your food! Has a country feel to the decor and southeren spin to some of their drinks and food! I would definitly reccommend this steakhouse to anyone who wants a good hot fresh meal!!!
