Lunch at Texas Roadhouse

Since we are going to celebrate Father’s Day at Mind Museum, I asked my husband if we could eat at Texas Roadhouse. My husband was able to try this restaurant when he was in Austin Texas last February. He was so satisfied with the food and service so when I’ve learned that they already have branch in the Philippines, nagkaroon ako ng hope na matry.

There are two branches of Texas Roadhouse, you can visit the branch in S’ Maison Conrad or Uptown Bonifacio and we chose the latter. Knowing that it is Father’s Day, we had an early lunch, as in past 10AM nandun na kami and we were the first diners. The staffs greeted my husband "Happy Father's Day"



Looking at the interiors of the restaurant, it is similar to the pictures of my husband. (the photos that he took in Austin) There are televisions and different display of deer too. 




The staff ushered us to our table and gave us one bucket of peanuts and one empty bucket. I mentioned before that they have unlimited servings of peanuts, yes you can eat all peanuts you want. But you need to put the empty shells in the bucket unlike in USA, you can just throw the peanut shells on the floor. 




We browsed the menu and my husband suggested the “Shareable Combos” kasi ito daw yung inoorder niya sa Austin. We ordered Sirloin & Pork Belly P1125 + extra rice P85. The combo meal includes two made-from-scratch side dish. My son likes to order the Mini Cheeseburgers but I told him to order the Junior Steak Bites P325 instead since same lang naman ng price. (+Service Charge)

The staff informed us, na 6oz lang daw yung Sirloin and hindi katulad nung steak na nasa menu. But we still ordered Sirloin at mahal yung ribeye, hehehe!. We know that we can’t finish big servings of meat, just like our experience in Melo’s.

When I saw this picture “Steak Guide” on the table, I remembered the very first time that I ate and ordered steak. At that time, I just started working and I wanted to treat myself so I ordered steak. The staff asked me if ano daw gusto ko luto. Napastop ko ng slight because I really have no idea so the staff informed me the different doneness of the steak. So for first timers, okay na may guide na ganito noh? Not all restaurants have this guide. 



Moving on, aside from the peanuts, they also gave us complimentary dinner roll. The bread was so good that it was gone in 60 seconds. The staff went back to our table and she asked if we want to refill the bread and we were so happy that it is not a one time serving. For diners, the bread is free and refillable but you can buy the bread for P10 per piece. 



I told my husband, sana drinks na lang pala inorder ko. Bubusugin ko na lang sarili ko sa peanuts and bread. Hehehe! But honestly, I like restaurant who serve peanuts and complimentary bread because you have something to eat while waiting for your order. 



After several minutes, our food came. After tasting the mashed potato, I can definitely say that their side dishes are made-from-scratch, ang layo niya sa nabibili na instant mix na mashed potato. We enjoyed the food that we ordered, mukhang di lang maganda sa picture. hehehe!



The price is on the expensive side but if I want to eat steak, I will consider Texas Roadhouse. The service is also good, they always check if we need something.

  1. I was also able to dine at Texas Roadhouse in the US but haven't been to their branches here yet. When I was there I was really shocked with the peanut shells on the floor but my friend, who was our host during our stay there, explained to me that it was the way things were really done there at the restaurant. Haha!

    1. But here in the Philippines, you can't do that. Nakakapagod nga naman maglinis.

  5. Ugh, bread! I'm sure I'll have a refill, too, if I were there. And I honestly couldn't think of a better place to bring a dad to on Father's Day. Meat is the perfect choice lol!

  6. Oh there's one in High Street, too. :) When I first tried Texas Roadhouse, I so loved what we ate. But then when I started taking out MSG and lessened our salt intake in our foods, the next time I visited the resto, I found the food too salty.

    1. Wow, good for you that you are reducing your salt intake. I'm not sure kung kaya ko yan kasi ang hilig ko sa salty na dishes like adobo. :)

  7. I haven't eaten steak in a long while. Hmm. I prefer medium. Always nasa middle, not too bloody and not too hard. :) Ginutom ako sa mashed po actually. I love homemade mashed potatoes kasi iba yung lasa kapag yung mix lang.
