It was one of those lazy days. We just did not feel like firing up the BBQ or turning on the stove. It was time to visit the ‘Texas Roadhouse’. There are numerous locations of this franchised establishment located throughout the country. We walked through the door and were greeted with a refrigerated case of hand-cut steaks to view. You can choose the beef that strikes your fancy and it will be grilled to your liking. We also noticed a big barrel of peanuts surrounded with spent shells on the floor. The restaurant was decorated with a cowboy/western theme. We were seated immediately and presented with some buttery still warm dinner rolls. I know Texas Roadhouse is famous for their steaks but they also claim to serve ‘Fall-Off-The-Bone-Ribs”. The barbeque judge in me ordered the ribs.
A very nice salad preceded our entrée. The plate of ribs was delivered and they looked delicious. These ribs were ‘fall off the bone’ to the point you could not actually pick up a rib with a bone. If you are familiar with Kansas City Barbeque Society rules, you will know that these ribs would be considered overcooked. These ribs had been steamed or boiled before they were put on a grill and slathered with sauce. They did have a good flavor and I devoured them.
The Texas Roadhouse is a fun and inviting restaurant. Their menu is large and will have something for everybody. Our server was prompt and cheerful. The ribs are not competition worthy but are tasty. It is kind of fun to throw peanut shells on the floor. We will return to the ‘Texas Roadhouse’ to try their hand-cut steak.
