Avoid Ordering These 7 Items From Texas Roadhouse
Country Fried Sirloin
Despite the name, Texas Roadhouse's country-fried sirloin smells a lot like chicken fried steak with its extra crispy coat and white cream gravy.
A profuse and unfaltering saltiness plagues the entire platter, hitting from every angle. The chalky gravy packs another sodium-filled punch and a few blows of strange smokiness.
Mac And Cheese
Restaurants ideally serve food you can't get at home, but at most Texas Roadhouses, the mac and cheese is hardly better than boxed Kraft.
If you find a location with the "homemade mac," don’t get your hopes up as it has a gloopy texture and indistinguishable flavor thanks to ultra-mild cheddar and basic seasonings.
All-American Cheeseburger
Steakhouses should treat burgers with the same respect they’d cook up a sirloin, but at Texas Roadhouse, that’s not the case.
Their All-American burger looks fine, but you’ll find the patty is overcooked and chewy while the overall dish lacks flavor without any seasonings or condiments.
Porterhouse T-bone
Texas Roadhouse offers ten separate cuts of steak, most of which are well worth the splurge, aside from the porterhouse T-bone.
As a 23-ounce, bone-in steak, the massive T-bone is susceptible to over- or under-cooking. Plus, it’s the only steak not hand-cut in-house and shipped in frozen.
Green Beans
Green beans are a common side dish at a range of restaurants, and at Texas Roadhouse, it's one of the worst side dishes you can order.
In an effort to imbue flavor, the beans are served with partially cooked bacon bits and diced onion while the beans themselves are bland and tender to the point of disintegrating.
