I went by myself. I realize that larger
parties mean bigger tips, but I still expect the same service as everyone else. The hostess told me she couldn't seat me while the staff was dancing their usual line dance. Which was fine- I just looked at the menu while I waited. When the song was over, they sat a party that came in after me. Then three hostesses kind of stood around until a party of 4 or 5 came in. That party got seated in seconds. Then a party of two with a baby came in. They also got sat in seconds. Meanwhile I was twiddling my thumbs. Now I don't expect much, but having three different hostesses ignore me in favor of seating others makes me mad. I stormed out, which I regret. I should have told them why I was leaving. Nevertheless, they treated me like I was second class and a loser. I won't stand for it. Too bad for them- I tip well, when I'm by myself because I take up a whole table. Too bad for me- I liked the food there.
Texas--themed barbecue chain provides carnivores with a family-friendly spot for a hand-cut steak or rack of tender ribs.. In Short With dozens of locations spread across most of the country, this faux-roadhouse chain has become a dependable spot for families in search of a casual spot for affordable steaks and down-home comfort fare. The playful menu is dotted with kid-friendly titles (chicken "critters," "road kill" chopped sirloin) and options (add caramel and marshmallow to a baked sweet potato for a dollar). In-house hand-cut steaks come in a plethora of cuts and sizes.
Above average food in a noisy environement!.
I actually have been to the roadhouse 3-4 times now and always enjoy the food. One of the best things on the menu is the Country Fried Sirloin. However, this place is noisy! Now I understand you have to have music in your theme restaurant but the volume was so loud it was hard to talk within your table. This place is busy - so plan on waiting on peak times. They do provide you peanuts in the shell to munch on - feel free to throw the shells on the ground. All the meals come with fresh hot rolls with honey butter - yum! Steaks and meats were good cuts of meat but not the leading steak house quality.
I really enjoyed the atmosphere. Peanut shells on the floor... great excitement with wait staff dancing and the birthday saddle???
I loved the fresh rolls with the whipped cinammin honey butter - Yummmm! Generous portions. The steak was good - I've had better and I have certainly had worse. The ribs were good - BBQ sauce wasn't anything special.
We must of arrived at a shift change as we had 3 different waitresses attend to our needs. The first told us she was leaving, the second just vanished, and the third offered no explanation for the second waitresses disappearance. We asked!
I took a friend to dinner at Texas Roadhouse. It was our first visit there and not only was the staff friendly, fun and informative, they over all ambience was a terrific experience. I recommend it HIGHLY for anyone who wants one of the best nights out for dinner!
