Located less than a five-minute drive from the Wolfchase Galleria in Memphis is a slice of Texas in Tennessee. The Texas Roadhouse is a family restaurant with a Texas theme that specializes in steaks, ribs and ice cold beer.
Unlike many chain restaurants, Texas Roadhouse still operates a scratch kitchen, meaning everything on the menu is prepared in-house from scratch; there are no frozen imports that just get dropped in a fryer or tossed in the oven to warm up. The menu at the Texas Roadhouse features daily specials and often includes the "Texas 2fer," a selection of entrees such as pulled pork, sirloin, fried chicken, Caesar salads, "road kill" and much more that come two for the price of one.
