I really don’t like chains and it is rarely my choice to go to one but hubs ate at The Texas Roadhouse when he was in Louisville, KY and enjoyed it so we decided to try the one in Nashua. Entering you are treated as if you are in a theme park with perky young waitstaff asking if you have eaten there before and therefore do you know the drill? Hubs did. I didn’t! You have the option of selecting a cut of meat before you are seated and I must say there were some lovely looking steaks in the case. We were led to our booth; dodging peanut shells all over the floor. (It is reminiscent of the old ground round), You are given a bucket of peanuts and expected (encouraged) to just throw the shells on the ground.( Call me crazy but I don’t do it at home and have a really hard time doing it out!) We ordered the shrimp skewer appetizer ..half a dozen shrimp on a skewer laid on top of garlic bread with a garlic butter sauce. Quite tasty. Followed by a rack of ribs and the standard choice of 2 sides. We chose …Caesar salads, mashed spuds, mixed vegetable. The ribs were fantastic, moist, very meaty and falling of the bone with a nice crust. Really good! Caesar was crisp with a nice dressing.
Two other observations…every half hour or so the music is cranked and some of the waitstaff go into a line dance presentation…quite funny depending on the enthusiasm of the particular team. And why do these chains not put prices on the drink menus? I ordered the house margarita and it was quite reasonable at $6.75 but why should you have to guess?
All in all the ribs were excellent for a chain.
