“Watts for Dinner”: Texas Roadhouse – Go Big, Go Home, Stuffed!

Our next dining destination is Texas Roadhouse, a popular restaurant but somewhat out of place (and time). You know we don’t cover many series here, which means this one is special. Why? Line dance breaks? maybe. Delicious, sweet and buttery yeast free rolls? definitely.

Whether you add cinnamon butter or not, these rolls are something special. Well worth the trip, even if everything else is disappointing. Fortunately, that didn’t happen.

In addition to the delicious dinner rolls, we opted for the Boneless Buffalo Wings ($9.99). These are slices of fried white meat chicken coated in a mild or hot sauce and served with ranch dressing or blue cheese. For the record, you can get it without sauce. We chose mild with blue cheese.

These chicken strips are absolutely crunchy! The light sauce was a little on the hot side, but acceptable. The dipping sauce had chunks of real blue cheese in it. There were celery sticks inside the basket as well. I ignored those. Thanks TR, but I don’t need any reminders that I should eat healthy.

But I love wings! I did well!

For my main entree, I chose the bacon dinner ($13.49). It’s tender, slow-cooked pork topped with the chain’s signature barbecue sauce and served with fresh toast. You get two sides. I chose a cup of chili and added cheese, onions, and a baked potato.

Lots to unpack here. First, the pork was as advertised. flexible. Tasty. sweet. Yum! The bagel is just one of the dinner rolls, sliced ​​open and toasted. That’s perfect! I haven’t had a loaded baked potato since Wendy’s had a salad bar. It was nice to come back again.

The chili that arrives before the rest of the meal is very meaty and flavorful. Your table-mates will be jealous. trust! Pro tip: Make it a bowl for just $1. I wish I had. Too much food? Take some home!

My dining companion chose the beef tips ($14.99) after much deliberation. It’s basically a cut steak – you can decide how you want it cooked. It comes with sautéed mushrooms, onions, brown gravy, and sour cream. This dish also comes with two sides, and he went for double fries.

Let me explain. On the one hand, opt for mashed potatoes and gravy. Perfect compliment to beef tips, IMHO.

For his second side. Choose sweet potatoes. Pro tip, it’s a scam. Why? Because instead of plain or butter, he gets it “filled with caramel sauce, cinnamon, honey, and toasted marshmallows.” Hence cheating. This is his candy. And this is beauty.

He praised the entire meal. The beef tips came back the way I ordered them. There were enough mashed potatoes on his plate for an entire family. But the biggest smile comes with those sweet potatoes.

Final note: Our server Erica was top notch. My glass never dried out. She was always there when we needed her. I think she’s a very good dancer too! Happy eating!
