Great food at a good price. the only downfall is a wait. So make sure to do call ahead seating so when you get to the restaurant it is just a short wait.

Excellent atmosphere, service and food. Birt&days are quite fun. Sorry but I don't have time to write a book.

Texas Roadhouse is usually busy and noisy, but the food is so good! We love the steaks, the buttered rolls, and the vegetables. I tried the Smothered Country Fried Steak this time and it was great for a change from grilled steak.
