Aurora >Texas Roadhouse
Texas--themed barbecue chain provides carnivores with a family-friendly spot for a hand-cut steak or rack of tender ribs..
With dozens of locations spread across most of the country, this faux-roadhouse chain has become a dependable spot for families in search of a casual spot for affordable steaks and down-home comfort fare. The playful menu is dotted with kid-friendly titles (chicken "critters," "road kill" chopped sirloin) and options (add caramel and marshmallow to a baked sweet potato for a dollar). In-house hand-cut steaks come in a plethora of cuts and sizes.
Mediocre for non-beef eaters. As non-beef/pork eaters, we've ordered 3 things for take-out: catfish, fried shrimp and smothered chicken. With the exception of loving the catfish, my boyfriend agrees it's all just ok. The catfish and fried shrimp are coated in a very coarse corn meal rather than the finer grade everyone typically cooks with. It's a strange grainy texture (like sand in your mouth), especially on the shrimp which we both expected to be battered. The smothered chicken wasn't smothered at all. It was grilled and served with onions and mushrooms added to the top- no gravy or sauce (which is what smothered means), not even a drop of juice in the bottom of the container. It was good tasting, but not at all what we ordered. It's all just OK. Maybe if we ate beef, we'd find the better part of the menu here.
Affordable Great Steak.
The steaks at Texas Roadhouse are aged and seasoned and always grilled perfectly to order. They are tender and delicious. The country-fried steak is not chopped but a gigantic thin slice of sirloin, and the gravy is true white country gravy!
Many delicious side dish choices. Excellent Caesar Salad. Friendly and efficient waitstaff. Best Margaritas!!!
