The food was awesome. The waitstaff was very nice and handled our impromptu crowd of 32 very well. All meals arrived together and cooked to perfection!!!

Food was good, service a bit over the top. The well trained waitress was able to recite the whole menu and beer list. A bit too artificial to my taste.

Typical American steak house, noisy also. But I had a fine Porterhouse, that earns them the very good rating.

Twelve years ago (according to one of the managers, this franchise has been open that long), we could not get seated here, though we tried twice. One time, the wait was way too long. The second time, we actually called ahead and got a buzzer, but the front desk never called us, though we had a seating time. Several parties came in after us and were seated. When we challenged the girl at the front desk, she accused us of leaving and not being available when called. So we walked out and never came back.

Until now. We managed to score a table seating on a busy Friday night when we desperately craved a beef fix after a week of seafood and poultry on Cape Cod. Once past the front desk, we were received with open arms. The staff was rather surprised that we, as locals, were making our first visit to the Texas Roadhouse. So we got the spiel from two of the staff within five minutes. We noticed immediately that everybody on the staff talks at 200 mph, which seems to be necessary, given the pace of this place. It is bedlam. It is so loud that you can barely hear the music and you can barely hear your table partner talk.

So the Roadhouse is no place for a relaxing, quiet date. You have to be amped for this. Also, if you have a peanut allergy, you can't get within 50 feet of a Roadhouse. Open buckets of peanuts are everywhere. The shells litter the floor.

The menu is extensive. If you are craving beef, you have come to the right place. The Roadhouse has steaks, chops, ribs, filets of all sizes, and plenty of non-beef items for those avoiding red meat. My companion and I were more than stuffed by just ordering the six-ounce Dallas filets, which came out grilled perfectly. Your server asks you to cut into the steaks to check this, and may have to shine the light of his/her cell phone on your meal to elucidate the color of the insides of the beef after you cut them, the place is so dark. The meats are incredibly tender, even though they contain so little fat. Those of you out there with dentures and chewing problems will have no issues with any of the food here.

You get two sides, so between the meat and all the accompanying homemade bread, veggies, and starch, you will likely take some home.

We noticed that many of the patrons looked, let say, well-fed. Nearly everybody on the staff was lean, which is understandable the way the staff runs its buns off serving the customers. It looks as if you have to be in top physical condition to get and keep a wait staff job at a Texas Roadhouse.

The manager came over and chatted us up a bit about our first visit. We inferred that the American flag planted in one of our bread rolls indicated that we were first-timers.

The Roadhouse rolls its baked potatoes in salt. If you don't like salt, you have the option of requesting that it not be done when placing your order.

Of course, your server will try to upsell you on appetizers and accompaniments to your meal. He did disclose that, due to the portion sizes, he had sold about seven desserts in the year or more he had worked there.

The Roadhouse has its shticks--the staff will break into a line dance on no notice whatsoever. If it is your birthday, you get to sit in a saddle chair brought out for the occasion while the staff cheers you with a Texas holler. But you don't have to kiss a moose.

We would like to sneak in here again, right after it opens at 3:30 in the afternoon, and try the early specials when we would hope it is a lot quieter.

The service was good as usual and the food excellent.

Taters skins and fried onions (a cactus type arrangement) were very good.

Although the meat medallions ordered by my wife were not as requested, they quickly replaced them. My rib eye steak was excellent. When we finished the server even offered to pack the bone and any other leftovers for the dog.

The meat was tasty just like a steak is supposed to taste, so were the mashed potatoes.

Consistent service and quality

The steak was grilled exactly the way I asked for it, the sides were excellent.
The only downside is that it's very noisy, so, not a place for an intimate date night.
