In the door, you are greeted with peanuts, throw the shells in a pail or if you must, on the floor.  Past the host stand you are greeted with an open window to the kitchen grill.  Around the cedar paneled booths and tables, off to be seated with warm yeast rolls and cinnamon butter along with a pail of peanuts.  Among the menu items, a sirloin can be just as good as a New York Strip.  It depends on what you like.  We have found most meals here to be rather consistent.  We were impressed with ribs where the meat falls off the bone.  To date, nothing to complain about.  Texas Roadhouse has the ability to satisfy your steakhouse cravings.
