Texas Roadhouse was founded by Kent Taylor in 1993 on the principles of fresh, authentic food made by hand. Steaks would be hand-cut, ribs would fall off the bone, the sides made from scratch and the bread baked fresh every five minutes. No shortcuts, just real food made fresh daily.
Kent was inspired by the traditional roadhouses found along the rural roads of the Lone Star State. These family restaurants were local gathering places where the smells, tastes, music and laughter were as big as the state of Texas. People of all ages could stop in to enjoy a great meal for a great price. There was no better reward following a hard day’s work than homemade food served in a relaxed atmosphere.
Twenty-three years and 500 restaurants later, Texas Roadhouse is still committed to those same principles of quality.
That true Texas Roadhouse experience can now be found around the world.
