Texas Roadhouse steakhouse brings steak and yeasty rolls to Lake Worth
A steakhouse has opened in Lake Worth: Texas Roadhouse, a Kentucky-based chain known for affordable prices and house-made rolls, has opened at 6672 NW Loop 820, in a new center next to the AMC Theater in northwest Fort Worth.
According to a spokesperson, it opened on December 11.
The restaurant professes to be about many things such as hand-cut steaks, made-from-scratch sides, murals, and a thing for Willie Nelson, and that is all good.
But the reasonable prices, with the most expensive steak being a $33 porterhouse, are surely a big lure.
The menu includes steaks, entree salads, fried catfish, pork chops, beef tips, burgers, and chicken sandwiches. They have buffalo wings, potato skins, chili, cheese fries, and ribs.
Some notable dishes include the cactus blossom, their cough-cough version of the Outback's Bloomin Onion; and their house-made rolls, which are yeast-based and which they say are baked fresh every five minutes and served with cinnamon butter.
The bread is such a thing that every Texas Roadhouse employs a butcher and a baker, the first to hand-cut their steaks, and the second to make the rolls from scratch every day.
They're open for dinner-only during the week, but open for lunch on weekends.
Decor is also a thing: The walls are adorned with murals created specifically for that restaurant, to reflect the local community. According to their website, the only mural provided to each restaurant is of a distinguished Native American created by a Texas Roadhouse artist. There are several versions of the painting, which honors Native American culture.
The first location opened in Clarksville, Indiana, just across from the current HQ in Louisville, in 1993 with a vision to create anaffordable Texas-style restaurant. The chain now has more than 600 locations in 49 states and nearly 40 international locations in 10 foreign countries. DFW has 10: Hulen Street, North Beach Street, Burleson, Bedford, Mansfield, Mesquite, Irving, Grand Prairie, Garland, and The Colony.
