Texas Roadhouse

Texas Roadhouse is a steakhouse with locations all over the world. There are around 600 locations, but the closest ones to Palestine are Vincennes, Indiana or Terre Haute, Indiana.

Going to Texas Roadhouse is a little pricey, but if you are looking for a nice and delicious place to eat this is the place if you aren’t against spending a little extra money.

They are known for their famous rolls that they bring out before they take your order. The rolls come hot and fresh with a side of cinnamon butter. A few of my favorite appetizers are the fried pickles, potato skins, and the bloomin’ onion. These appetizers range from $7-$10.

The main entree is always a tough choice. Do you want steak, ribs, pulled pork, chicken, or a salad? There are so many choices, but I usually go with a steak and a baked potato on the side.

Texas Roadhouse is a great choice if you want something a little nicer, but not too fancy!
