Legendary to the core

This is our Story

It all began on February 17, 1993, when Kent Taylor opened the first Texas Roadhouse in Clarksville, Indiana. Kent’s goal was to own not just a family restaurant and not just a steak restaurant, but a place where everyone, of all ages, could come and have a great meal and great fun for a great price.

We like to brag about our Hand-Cut Steaks, Fall-Off-The-Bone Ribs, Made-From-Scratch Sides, and Fresh-Baked Bread. Everything we do goes into making our hearty meals stand out. We handcraft almost everything we serve. We provide larger portions so you get more food for your dollar. And if you want an Ice Cold Beer or Legendary Margarita to wash it all down — well, we have those, too.

These are our people

Since our company opened its doors in 1993, the focus of Texas Roadhouse has been on putting employees first. It has always been our founder, Kent Taylor's, belief that if all of our team members (“Roadies,” as we like to call them) are happy, our guests will have an amazing experience to brag about!

To ensure that our Roadies stay passionate about the Roadhouse, we make sure they know how passionate we are about them and their well-being. That's why a few years ago, Texas Roadhouse created Andy's Outreach Fund — so that our Roadies could help other Roadies who might be struggling personally as they carry on the incredible culture of our one-of-a-kind place to work.

This is our commitment

It is important to give back to the communities that are so much a part of Texas Roadhouse. That means playing an active role in the events that shape the lives of the people we live and work with. That's why you're likely to see Andy the Armadillo at your local little league game or reading to the children in your local schools. That's also why you'll see our Roadies both in the restaurant and out in the community supporting your local charitable organizations, schools, and fundraisers.

“I would just like to thank Texas Roadhouse for recognizing veterans this past Veteran's Day. I was discharged from the Navy in 1969 and this is the first time that veterans have been recognized. The meal that I was given along with the service was superb. I just want to thank you. While in the restaurant, I was telling my wife that this is the first time that we have been thanked and recognized and I started to choke up. Thank you again…”
