The Texas Roadhouse story began in February 1993, when Kent Taylor opened the first location in Clarksville, Indiana, with the goal of owning a family-friendly steak restaurant, where people of all ages could come and have a great meal for a great price. Kent’s goal was to serve food he was proud of. At Texas Roadhouse, you can find Hand-Cut Steaks, Fall-Off-The-Bone Ribs, Fresh-Baked Bread, and our Made-From-Scratch items, such as our croutons, bacon bits, and salad dressings. Pair our Legendary Food with an Ice Cold Beer or one of our Legendary Margaritas, and you will get the full Texas Roadhouse experience. Our food is not the only Legendary thing at Texas Roadhouse – Our fun is, too! From our line dancers to our jukebox, and our friendly servers, the fun is non-stop. Our team has an incredible sense of pride in everything we do, and our passion ensures you have a legendary experience with every visit. The dedication we have for our guests extends far beyond the four walls of our restaurants, with our team members getting involved in their local communities in many ways to give back to be the hometown favorite. We often say we are a people first company, that just happens to serve steaks. The Texas Roadhouse story is simple. Legendary Food, Legendary Service ® – All with lots of Legendary Fun!
