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 it gets pretty loud during dinner rush.
Note: Make reservations ahead of time or expect to wait for seating during weekend dinner rush. The wait is a testament to their consistency - you can always count on a decent meal.

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 well cooked, and seemed fresh.

The service was a problem. The host seemed like he'd rather be anywhere else, and our server was less than attentive to us. It was lunch time, and the place wasn't crowded, although they were having a problem with their credit card system, and that seemed to throw her off of her game. I wouldn't avoid going back, but I won't go out of my way either.
