We had dinner here evening before last with Ian in the San Antonio Food Tour. 🙂

We had called ahead for seating, and when we got to the restaurant at 1730, it was packed, with a long waiting line. Fortunately, we only waited five minutes since we had called ahead.

Ian and I had steak, both of us had ribeyes. Both steaks were cooked perfectly to order (medium and medium rare), and were very good cuts. Mine had no spots that were not tender.

Raegan had a grilled shrimp dinner.

Nothing was left of any of these meals. Service was very good, we never ran out of iced tea. Our check was $60.56. Good food.

Texas Roadhouse on Urbanspoon

I went here for dinner this evening with my friends Clark and Brad. I had had a steak for lunch, so decided on something different. I got the pulled pork. It wasn’t very good. It was tough and didn’t have much flavor. The fries and corn were OK.

Both Clark (a bacon burger) and Brad (a medium well sirloin) reported their meals as overcooked.

Service, OTOH, was outstanding, as was the iced tea. My check was $13.25. I am of mixed feelings about this location. The two in OKC are consistently good. Maybe this one was having an off night; it was pretty busy.

Texas Roadhouse on Urbanspoon

Raegan and I had dinner at this location 09 October. I got a ribeye and she got salmon. She reported the salmon was excellent. My ribeye was pretty good, but it was somewhat undercooked when it arrived at the table. I worked on my baked potato and let the steak rest and cook some more, and it ended up right at medium, and was very tasty.

Service was very attentive and friendly. Our check was $40.91. Not bad. I would not mind going back.

Texas Roadhouse on Urbanspoon

A group of work associates of mine had dinner last Tuesday at the Texas Roadhouse near Crossroads Mall in south OKC.

I was not terribly enthusiastic about this. I have been to three other Texas Roadhouse locations over the years (Shreveport, LA, and two locations in Texas), and in each case, the steaks were all uniformly charred. The manager of the Shreveport location told me when I asked that the serious charring was company policy. My plan for the evening was something non-steak, like CFS. So as we waited for our table (we had a group of 10), I looked at steaks being taken to tables, and not one of them was charred. They looked like I expected a steak to look.

I decided to take a chance and ordered a ribeye. I also ordered some fried pickles and onion rings for the table. These were really good. I especially liked the ranch dressing that came with the appetizers. They also have really good rolls, with some flavored butter.

For my sides, I had some chili and baked potato. These were really good. The chili had steak chunks in it, and had just the right amount of spice. The steak was a pleasant surprise. I had asked for it medium, but it came medium rare+. I focused on the baked potato, and the steak finished cooking and firmed up. It was a decent steak. It was not exactly bursting with flavor, but was tasty. It was tender, and juicy all the way through. Not a bit of steak, potato, or chili survived.

The tea was excellent. Service was very good (especially given that we had a table of 10, and the restaurant was very crowded). We did have an extorted 13.82723455% tip included (why not 14%?), but I sweetened that somewhat.

I have avoided Texas Roadhouse locations over the years. I think that Logan’s or Longhorn steaks are better than the steak I got at TR, but I am willing to try TR again to check the consistency of the beef. The overall experience was very good.
