Consistently good food and service... but nothing extraordinary. Good for family dinners because of the varied menu with lots of choices at a fair price. Hub cap burgers for the kids, several great salad choices for mom, various steaks and bbq choices done to order for dad. Atmosphere is casual (peanut shells on the floor, TVs showing sport events) and... More

Very good for lunch if you want a casual meal. Spacious restaurant where you're not sitting a few inches from the other tables, a very nice and varied menu, and the service was very good also. I would go here again.

The decor and menu are designed to highlight the "typical" Texas roadhouse. Get past the kitschy theme-park like atmosphere and design, and the food is actually pretty good. We had the smoked pulled pork sandwich and a burger. The pork had good flavor, and came with a nice spicy vinegar to offset the richness of the pork. The burger was... More

The food here was decent. I loved my husbands barbecue pork sandwich that he got. My kids loved that they could get peanuts and throw the shells on the floor. They were hesitant at first but after doing it, it was fun to them. The only problem we had was that there was lots of personal conversations going on between... More

Kid will love the opportunity to eat peanuts and throw the shells on the floor (some adults do, too) Menu has a lot of choices; hard to find anything simple, many things have sauces and gravies; but the waitstaff are willing to try and get you what you want (the kitchen doesn't always cooperate). Anyone with peanut allergies shouldn't even... More

Had the prime rib dip which was very good. Really like their horse radish sauce. Good bite and texture. Service was very good and waiter very attentive. Best part, my son paid for the meal. Made it taste that much better.

We went for lunch with my 8 year old son and found it to be fine. It didn't have as many texas barbecue offerings as we may have suspected. My husband got the chicken fried steak with mashed potatoes, I had a half size blackened salmon Caesar salad. It was good. The Caesar wasn't homemade, it appeared to use bottled... More
