Do's and Don'ts of Dining at Texas Roadhouse
Our first Texas Roadhouse meal was disappointing. I heard it was hard to get in, but I came at 7 pm on a Friday. When our table was ready, they texted us.
App waitlisting lets you plan ahead
Texas Roadhouse lets you pick your raw steak. I've seen this at upscale steakhouses but not a franchise.
Choose your steak
Steakhouses aren't kid-friendly. Texas Roadhouse is friendly. Kraft Mac and Cheese is back. It's noisy and has a wide kids' menu.
The presentation won't be fancy. Above is a 12-ounce Fort Worth Ribeye. No tablecloths or expensive wine glasses.
Save money, not presentation
Texas Roadhouse's hot, fresh-baked buns come with cinnamon butter. At Texas Roadhouse, you're seated with the rolls.
Don't overeat or get upsold
Choose judiciously among the two steak sides or you'll overeat. Skip the marshmallow-topped sweet potato.
When I looked around, I didn't see any menus advertising chocolate lava cakes. The reason is sly.
You're not obligated to order dessert
Inside and out, country music plays. On our second visit, about 3 pm, the music was softer but picked up around 4:30 pm. If you don't like country, stay away.
If you hate country music, don't go
