Caution: Peanuts Ahead
On Saturday, February 12, 2011, at dinnertime, I went to Texas Roadhouse, near River Town Crossings Mall. Texas Roadhouse is a steakhouse chain restaurant. Dinnertime wasn't a good choice because I had to wait an hour to be seated. They had very interesting decor around the building. There were lots of paintings of an armadillo. One painting was a picture of him wake boarding, and his friend, an iguana, power cruising on the Grand River. There were also cactus plants, caricatures of race car drivers and their stock cars and Texas flags. I had a bucket of peanuts that you crack open to eat. I also has root beer. We shared a Baby Blossom, an appetizer that's a chopped deep fried onion that you can dip in Thousand Island dressing. I also has soft, cushy, big rolls with cinnamon butter. They were fresh from the oven. Then I had the Ranger Ribs-pig ribs with barbecue sauce-and fries. They were delicious, chewy and tangy. My favorite part was the peanuts which came from a big barrel. My least favorite part was waiting an hour to be seated. Our waitress was quick at bringing our food. She was nice. I give 4 stars for Texas Roadhouse because the food and experience were excellent, but the wait was long.
