Saddle up and prepare your tastebuds for a gastronomic ride! The original Texas Roadhouse is now open in the Philippines! In fact, it just opened today at the fourth level of Uptown Mall in BGC.
In case you haven’t heard of it yet, Texas Roadhouse was once named by Forbes magazine as one of America’s best companies and recognized as the number one steakhouse in America by Consumers’ Choice in Chains survey. It has everything spot-on for a quintessential steakhouse experience – from a menu of big, bold Southwestern flavors, the rustic interiors of dark wood and bricks and framed memorabilia on the walls to country music playing in the background.
The true taste of Texas is in the restaurant’s high quality hand-cut steaks. Grilled on open fire to achieve that wonderful smoky taste and just the right amount of char, Texas Roadhouse’s steaks come in a variety of premium cuts, which customers may choose from upon ordering and cooked according to their preferred doneness. There are servings for one, two and for shareable combos for groups of 4 or more.
Choices include USDA Choice Sirloin, Dallas Filet, Filet Medallions, Ft. Worth Ribeye and Bone-in Ribeye. Its ribeye steaks are incredibly flavorful and juicy due to the even marbling throughout the meat.
Go on and satisfy that carnivore in you. Fortunately, the steaks are reasonably priced to ensure value for money with every bite. The best-selling 6 oz. (170g) sirloin can be had for only Php595, for example – an awesome deal for a really good, juicy steak!
The steakhouse also takes great pride in its slow-cooked, fall-off-the-bone ribs that has reaped several awards across the United States.
All entrées include a side dish of your choice made-from-scratch sides: steak rice, sweet potato, baked potato, steak fries, buttered corn, coleslaw, mixed vegetables, mashed potatoes, house salad, Caesar salad, steamed white rice or seasoned rice.
There’s also one item that rivals the restaurant’s fine reputation. Its complimentary freshly-baked bread is another reason to pay Texas Roadhouse a visit. In fact, they are so special that the kitchen staff makes them every five minutes in small batches to guarantee their freshness.
While Texas Roadhouse lays claim to some of the best steaks in town, it is also known for its other dishes and specialties. Perennial favorites are Rattle Snake Bites, which are actually balls of diced jalapeños and jack cheese, hand-battered and lightly fried and served with Ranch dressing and assorted salads various homemade dressings like ranch, honey mustard, Italian and bleu cheese, and Caesar.
The steakhouse also likes its burgers big and meaty served with steak fries on the side. Choices include the All-American Cheeseburger, Smokehouse Burger, Mushroom Jack Chicken, Buffalo Burger, and Sliders to mention some.
Packing a big cowboy punch are the restaurant’s Texas-Sized Platters good for four or more people. These platters are mouthwatering combinations of different kinds of meats, so customers can’t go wrong whichever platter they order. Try their Pork Chops, Beef Steak Tips and Shrimp platter for a surf n’ turf kind of meal, or the Crispy Chicken Strips, Sirloin and Beef plate.
Also, customers get a complimentary bucket of peanuts to nibble on while they browse through the menu.
Staying true to founder Kent Taylor’s vision of having a place where people of all ages can have a great meal and great fun, every Texas Roadhouse promises the same with each meal. This is made sure by The Bistro Group’s brand of service personified through its friendly servers and attentive managers as well as the restaurant’s welcoming atmosphere.
“The Bistro Group played a key role in our decision to open here in the Philippines and one of those reasons is we know they will take care of our brand and represent it well in South Asia,” said Hugh Carroll, Texas Roadhouse VP for International, during his recent visit to the country prior to the restaurant’s opening. “Texas Roadhouse has a lot of energy and fun, which when combined with the flavors of our food, will make it a fun place to be. I think our food is a natural fit for the Filipinos’ taste.”
There’s nothing quite like the original and the legendary Texas Roadhouse. Experience it now!
