Favorite Restaurant

Our favorite restaurant for a good meal at a reasonable price is The Texas Roadhouse. We have always received good service and meals at a reasonable price. It doesn't hurt they play country music since they are originated in Texas. We always go there before a country concert. The decor is quite Texan with fish and deer heads on the wall. They also have a buffalo and moose head.
They decorate it to the local, here is Jack Lambert a famous Pittsburgh Steelers from the championship years who was a standout player at Kent State University.
The KSU and Akron University Basketball teams are honored.
We do go there a least once a week and the manager, Harry Curtis, knows us by name.
There is usually a line dance to spice up the evening and also several birthday celebrations during most nights.
Good prices, good service and excellent food. My wife likes the Fillet and I usually go for the Double Pork Chops. It comes with a salad and your choice of potato with other options. I always take one Pork Chop and part of a potato home for lunch/supper the next day. You also get all the shelled peanuts you want while waiting for your meal.

Sounds good to me! We like to eat at Logan's which sounds similar with the peanuts and you throw the shells on the floor.

Tom, I'm thinking that you should get one of those pork chops for free after such a great review. I also never knew that Jack Lambert went to KSU. Great stuff. Where is this one located?

That sounds like our Sage Brush. Love it there. Although, they have been making changes that I'm not fond of. I may be in the market for a new place to eat my shelled peanuts!

Your Texas Roadhouse reminds me of a restaurant we used to have in nearby Lewisburg, Ohio. Situated along the Interstate and a state route it perched on top of a hill overlooking the Twin Creek valley. It was a beautiful place to take someone for dinner and it was just nice to sit there and gloat over the view. Then the owner got greedy and turned it into a "All you can eat Buffet" and then hired teens for chefs and kids who picked their nose while working in the kitchen. And before long, nobody was stopping to eat and it closed down and the building was demolished. Nobody knows what happened to the monumental Buffalo that was in front but it is gone too. In my lifetime, I can remember many, (a lot) restaurants that closed after the owners ruined their businesses trying to cut corners and make more money.

In contrast to that, your photos clearly show a place that people go back to and people must enjoy the food and the service.

I think all the photos are very good ones. I think that must be you and the Mrs. in the picture. What a treat this had turned out to be.

What a fun and great atmosphere to have dinner! I know my husband would LOVE to eat there... with me being a vegetarian... I'm just not too sure but I love how much the walls are so decorated with Texan heritage and life!!

The Texican said...

Yeah, It's about time for me to go back. I've been doing the cooking lately and I'm ready to let the Roadhouse feed me. Pappy

If I were there, I would be really excited:)

Warren Baker said...

You're making me feel hungry fishing guy!
Those sedem flowers grow well in my garden too, a good late source of nectar for the butterflies

Carletta said...

Are the peanut shells on the floor like Logans? That's just wrong to me. :)
Is Mrs. FG in leather - tell her she looks very nice beside the smiling manager.

fishing guy said...

Carletta: There are no shells on the floor. they give you two buckets, one with peanuts and one for shells. Yes, that is her soft leather jacket. She always is cold in restaurants.

You should get discount now that you advertised their place. It looks like a nice local hangout.

See ya there Saturday.

8Pm OK for you?

Texas Travelers said...

We have the choice of a lot of Texas Roadhouses here in Texas. As you say, the food is always good and pretty much the same everywhere.

Our local one is decorated with Willie Nelson and Nascar.

Thanks for the visit,
Troy

I usually consider myself to be polite and civilized, except for once, when I went to a place like that in Dallas. It was late, and I didn't want to go back to the hotel with a full belly, so I ordered a 10-ounce steak. The menu listed it as the "Cowgirl Special." I told the waiter that if I heard him refer to my food as a cowgirl special, we were "going to have a problem." He was a good sport to play along, and renamed it on the spot.

Congrats on the Post of the Day mention at David McMahon's blog.

Jo Castillo said...

The Roadhouse is my granddaughter's favorite as well. They seem consistent and good everywhere. They were started in Indiana you know? How about the peanuts?

Hi Fishing Guy--I have seen your comments on a lot of other people's posts and decided to finally check you out today. Love your blog! Your pictures are wonderful, and seeing the sedum flowers grow before my eyes and finally bloom was a neat way to present them. Just wanted to say,my husband and I are crazy about Lone Star Steakhouse. :-)
