We stopped here on a late night return to Lincoln, NE, and received wonderful service an hour before they closed. My steak & baked potato really hit the spot while my wife enjoyed the salmon. Glad we made the stop.

The food wasn't the greatest compared to other Texas Roadhouse we have visited. The drinks were excellent and the services was extremely slow, but friendly.

It is like most Texas Roadhouses. It has good food and people seem to enjoy the staff signing happy birthday to them. It is right off hwy 35/85 on the north side of the road. A fun place for all or part of the family

We were staying at the TownePlace Inn and Suites just across the street. We had spent the day at Adventureland, and while the kids were happy with McDonalds my wife and I wanted something a little better. We were able to order over the phone, and I walked over and picked up the order and took it back to the... More

This place is packed, with a 30 minute or more wait...so get here early...or come prepared to slip past the crowds and sit at the bar. Big screens of multiple sports, interesting overheard conversation from neighbors and a pile of steaming ribeye and ribs, sweet potato and green beans. Perfect!

We visited this restaurant a little after 8:00 pm and they did not have ANY bread!! They said that it had been slow earlier so they didn't make any more bread. Then they got real busy. That's a big part of why we come to this restaurant. We had been driving for 12 hours so we were too tired to... More
