Dining at Texas Roadhouse is a one of a kind experience. Standing on spent peanut shells (more about that in a moment) the aromas wafting from the kitchen are enough to send even the most discriminating taste buds into the stratosphere. A glass case displaying cuts of marbled beef sparkles behind the waiting crowd. Lengthy wait times seem common to the Texas Roadhouse diner. Thankfully, a call-ahead feature is available to reduce long lines.

The restaurant chain, with over three hundred locations in almost every state, first opened in Indiana in early 1993. What began as a dream to open a restaurant with a Colorado inspired theme became reality when former fast food manager Kent Taylor gained the financial backing of former Kentucky governor John Y. Brown. The original name was Buckhead Mountain Grill. After a change in partnerships the name changed and Texas Roadhouse was born.

The ambience is fun and active. Waitresses line dance at regular intervals entertaining the crowd. Music plays over the din of patrons creating an active and fun atmosphere. The bar is hopping with mixed drinks and beer on tap. Barrels and buckets of peanuts are everywhere. Patrons help themselves to the peanuts, tossing the shells on the floor after they indulge.

With a name like Texas Roadhouse, the menu will be no mystery. Steak, ribs, and chicken make up the cuisine. The restaurant is more than just a barbecue joint. As a real steakhouse, the beef cuts range from the house sirloin to a gourmet filet. Meat is never frozen, but cut fresh on site. Almost everything on the menu is homemade, with the exception of the macaroni and cheese from the kid’s menu. From the famous Onion Blossom on the appetizer menu to the catfish filet, every item follows the company’s slogan: “Legendary Food, Legendary Service.”

From time to time, wait staff will give away coupons for a free appetizer on the next visit. Savings.com is another site that offers coupons for the restaurant. The Entertainment coupon book features $5 off $25 savings as well.
