Texas Roadhouse is an American steakhouse chain specializing in steaks mainly in a Texan and Southwestern style cuisine, it is also a franchisee of Texas Roadhouse Inc., which is primarily located in Louisville, Kentucky. The restaurant started out as just a small shack on Eastheimer Street in Houston, Texas, but has grown to become one of the best steakhouses in Texas, especially since opening its second Houston location. However, in most areas across the United States, one would need to drive quite a long way to find the original, so this article will give a brief description of the history of this popular chain of restaurants.
In the spring of 2021, I went to eat at the new Texas Roadhouse located off Old Saint Augustine road in Galveston, Texas. It was located about 20 minutes from downtown Houston, in the middle of an area known as The Beltway. Driving by, I couldn’t help but notice how many restaurants had sprouted up along the way, making it seem as though every corner of the state was covered with these roadside eateries. When I got to the front door, I was greeted with a friendly lady who asked if I wanted a tour of the restaurant. Without having to hesitate, I hop in the car and we made our way through some industrial areas, looking for a decent sized building, but we didn’t find one.
My first Texas Roadhouse meal was a three-dollar hot dog, ordered by a young girl. This was my second time to eat here, and I was hoping that the fried potatoes and collard greens were better than the typical bun. While the waitress was preparing the dish, I noted that the waitress put the onions on top first, before putting on the bread. When the waitress came back to take my order, she told me that the onions were on top because they are easier to put on than the bread. Now, I’m not normally one to complain about things like this, but it really didn’t taste as good as I thought it would have.
My next order of the day came from a table near the back where a middle-aged couple sat and ate their chili and beans. While it wasn’t the typical breakfast food at a Texas Roadhouse, I was impressed by the quality of this meal. Their chili was nicely seasoned, the beans were tender and chewy, and the couple managed to squeeze in some cheese and coleslaw onto their plate without complaining. I also noticed that their waitress kept the tables neat and clean, which can be said for most of the dining establishment. While I don’t think that Louisiana is quite ready for a state flag when it comes to their Texas Roadhouse offerings, they have come a long way.
Just a few blocks down from the Texas Roadhouse in Downtown Louisville is another excellent choice for a lunchtime or dinner meal. The Waffle House is located right on MLK High Street in what used to be the General Post Office building. While it may not offer the fanfare of a good Texas Roadhouse, I do know that this place serves a great breakfast and they do serve their famous waffles – just try and get there early so you don’t miss the delicious maple bacon waffle! The waffle house is owned by the Waffle House chain, so expect great food and prices similar to their competitors.
Just a short distance from the Waffle House is another Kentucky favorite restaurant: Joe’s Roadhouse and Country Club. Just down the street is another excellent restaurant, Bojangles’ Backyard BBQ. This restaurant also offers some fantastic food and has an extensive happy hour and live music every Friday evening. Both of these restaurants are owned by the same people, so expect good food and a nice place to hang out on your trip to Kentucky.
As you can see, there are a lot of potential Texas Roadhouse restaurants for the future. If you are traveling in Kentucky, you may want to stop in some of these restaurants and see how they are before making the final decision on which one to go to.
