Service was great! Food was very hot. I'm a server at Zweli's 1st Zimbabwe restaurant in the US in Durham so we left her 40$ on an 76$ check because us servers pay it forward and understand how hard we work.

My little family goes here often, especially since they opened back up, but recently it has gone down hill. Last Sunday we went for lunch, ordered our kids food ahead of time so they could get theirs sooner and start eating, but it took almost as long to get their food as it did ours. The managers rarely check up on you now like they use to and we didn't have one check on us today or last week. It seems to take longer to get our food each time we go. Today we got there about 2:30 and didn't leave until going on 5pm. We waited on our food for what seemed like forever and then when we got our food it was barely warm. The cheese in my baked potato wouldn't even melt. I sent mine back and had them take it off my bill because I didn't want to wait on another. It took another 30 minute to get a box to take our leftover appetizers home (and we had to ask 3 different people for boxes) and then another 30+ minutes to get our checks. We were all more than ready to leave and we left irritable..I will add the server was real nice, but management needs to step up in my opinion. Becoming more disappointed every time we come. **Edited to say they must've had new management come in or issues were addressed. Food has been alot better recently and coming out in a timely manner and managers have been checking in like they use to. So I added more stars 2-5-2021

It was a wonderful dining experience! We went for early dine in dinner. All for $9.99 plus your drink. My husband had a sirloin, loaded baked potato and Cesar salad. He said it was cooked to perfection and so tender. I had Chicken fried Steak with cream gravey, baked potato and a house salad. THE BEST DINNER EVER!!!! That had to be the best chicken fried steak I have ever had in my life! (I'm a senior, so I've had a few) Our server was ANTONIO and he was GREAT!!! Will definitely go back and would highly recommend!!!! 😊

Texas Roadhouse is always our go to place for a GREAT meal and some HOT rolls! We asked them to donate us (Greater Works Outreach Ministries) food items to help us feed the Homeless Community...and let me tell you without hesitation they came through! It's not only wonderful that we can sit and have a hot meal but an AWESOME experience knowing that they are willing to HELP feed the community! Thank you Texas Roadhouse...#LIFE #GROWTH #WEALTH

Consistently good food and service. Our last visit was no exception. Took advantage of early bird special. Delicious pork chop and salmon. Exceptional service- best waitress- kept beverages filled and offered to go cups; rolls refilled with out asking; extra ranch with salads- it's the little things that make for exceptional service.

A brief wait to get in but table service was fast, professional and efficient. The food was GREAT. I felt like the portions needed to be larger or the plates needed to be smaller because some of the items were lost in the space of the plate. Shania, our waitress, was EXCEPTIONAL! We will definitely come back.

We often get takeout on Sundays as a family, and Roadhouse is one of the places in rotation. The food has been consistently great lately, as the accuracy of the order. The curbside pickup works well and the servers working it are always pleasant and have a sense of urgency.

We received a gift card and this happened to be the closest to us. The service was amazing from the start. Our food was brought out promptly and cooked well. When I say well, I mean those of us who had steaks mentioned they were the best we've had in a long time. We ordered medium rare sirloins. They came out exactly right. I don't know about you, but that is a hard thing to find in a steak restaurant. I highly recommend this location.

Safety measures are in place during the pandemic & I can definitely appreciate that. After checking in @ the tent, waiting occurs in the car, and they'll let you know when it's time to come in. Facility was clean, good separation with the booths, and the "peanut" sitting area was closed off. I appreciate the disposable paper menus for the bar drinks & I would hope they do the same with the laminated food menus. Overall great experience and our waitress this evening was awesome.

Covid-19 Responsible.🤗 Had server name Russ who was wonderful.🌟 Russ made sure my appetizer & entree didn't have any pork or other items that I were allergic. Nice size potions. Hot foods came out hot & cold foods came out cold. Beverage refilled appropriately. Good dining experience!🤗

We sat to have a drink while our take out orders were made. We ordered the Jamaican Cowboy. And the service was great. This restaurant has consistently been our go to during self quarantining. And we have rarely had a bad dining experience this way.

Food is very good. Recommend the fried onion blossom. I ordered rib-eye medium rare. It was very juicy and delicious but had a bit too much fat. I enjoyed my meal but I do think Outback is better.

We were very pleased with the little lady behind the bar, as this is where we had our dinner. She and others were very mindful of us being there and took care of us with the utmost speed, our food was absolutely delicious, the ribeye, and the fillet were so tender, no knife needed, thanks for an awesome dinner. Stay safe.

Good food, friend helpful service. Curbside has been excellent. Had to wait over over 20 minutes after my pickup time to get my food last visit, but hopefully that was an isolated incident.

Me and my family of 5 decided to get out and Dine in for the first time since the pandemic and Megan aka megs was our server and she was like a breath of fresh air! She helped us decide on menu items and her suggestion on the rice was amazing which went perfect with my 10oz Ribeye!! The food came out fast and it was soooooooooooo amazing! Its nothing like eating out and getting good food and service! Needless to say we will be back !!

Very enjoyable dining even with pandemic protocols. The service is always superb and the steaks make me want to come back at least once a week. Don't get me started on the rolls: they can make someone renounce their gluten-free ways.

I placed a Togo order at 4:30 the young lady said it would be ready in 30 -40 minutes. I left my house at 5:20 to get here and be place in the parking lot for an HR now. I sure do hope my order is correct and fresh . A very nice woman happily gave me a very nice discount for my cold food

When you're looking for a steakhouse and your staying at the red roof inn almost next door and you may want a beer and you dont have a driver. You can walk over to the Texas Roadhouse. Bring your appetite, no need to dress up the steak doesn't care what you look like. It was convenient and all of the things that we've come to expect from steakhouses. The service was friendly and quick food was good but not best ever.

I forgot how good Texas Roadhouse was! Even getting it to-go it was still amazing. The staff was nice and the rolls were still hot by time I got home. I'll be back soon!

Best place to get a steak. You can pick it out of the counter Awesome food. I see somebody put that it takes a long time to get into the Restaurant. Yes it does sometimes. But well worth the wait. You learn to go early or call ahead get a Reservation.

I enjoy eating at Texas Roadhouse. But, this time, they were having an "off" day. I ordered ribs. They weren't grilled, they were burnt. I sent them back. They returned a nicelt cooked portion in return. But, it took awhile, so, I ended up having to take the plate with me, although I intended to dine in.

Astonishing. A must if you're in Durham. You will understand how good it is as soon as you walk in: meat cuts are on display, the ambience warm and welcoming, and the staff very gentle. We ordered way too much for for less than 30$ each! The service is quick, maybe even too quick, and the meats is simply delicious. You might want to tray the combo meals..make sure you got space in your stomach though!

The food was very good but my appetizer and entree arrived almost at the same time. Lovely experience overall

Texas Roadhouse is one of my faves, and this is by far the best one I've ever been to! An hour before close and our waitress (Rosemarie) was awesome, everyone was friendly, and the food rocked. My steak was exactly how I asked it to be, and my boyfriend's ribs fell right off the bone. Wonderful experience.

So much better than outback. The cactus blossom beats outback by a mile. Texas road house gets the seasoning just right. Whereas outback always seems to be salty

Texas Roadhouse is my favorite "Steak Place!" I had a NY Strip steak that was cooked perfectly! Our server was very pleasant and helpful. They have small silver pails on the table filled with peanuts in the shell to snack on (which my husband LOVED!) while we waited on our appetizer (potato skins w/ cheese and bacon!) And we didn't wait long for our food, even though there were no empty tables! That shows great management! I highly recommend that you try it! Oh, and the rolls are delicious!

Every time my husband has to go to the doctor at Duke, we always eat there every time. Its always very excellent. And great service and customer friendly. The only thing that we don't really care for is the rabbits and different animals on the walls. Thank you for asking for our opinions.

We go to Texas Roadhouse often. This particular location had a mix up on our table. No one would wait on us. After 12 minutes I had to ask another server to get someone to wait on us. She was very nice but taking to much time to serve us and to get our food was disturbing. The food was very good .

This was my first time here. I ordered the 5 oz salmon with a baked sweet potato and broccoli. The salmon seemed like it had a good amount of salt on it and it was cooked very well done. I wasn’t a fan of that. The broccoli and sweet potato were fine. When you sit the server brings out hot rolls with a whipped butter l maybe it was cinnamon one? It was really good though. I don’t remember the servers name but she wasn’t very present and did not come to check on our table often enough. We had to ask other servers for things. Overall it was an ok experience. I would like to come back for dinner and order a steak since I think this is what the restaurant is known for. I came for lunch and did not want to eat anything to heavy since I had to go back to work.

Our family had dinner at the Texas roadhouse Durham location - food was delicious and hot! Our server Lydia never let us run out of drinks, rolls or napkins - she filled our every need and was so sweet and friendly! She was the best waitress and made our first trip to a Texas Roadhouse a great experience! We definitely will be returning when we are back in the Durham area!

I met some friends here for a celebration, since I'm a vegan this would not be a place I would choose because they really don't have much to offer vegans. With that being said, the service was great, the food arrived quickly, and our server was very nice. I got mixed veggies, streamed rice, and french fries; the french fries were too saltly, I could not eat them but everything else was good.

Wouldn't go any other place for a steak the I really want to enjoy. In fact this right now is the only steak House I give 5 Stars to. Angus Barn is over priced and their steak they serve doesn't even come close to what you get here. In fact over the past 5 years I have yet to find a steak House that even comes close to this place. Myrtle Beach has one place that's good but it still doesn't come close. Highly Recommend this place

Awesome food, service & drinks! I recommend the Beef Tips or Roadkill/Burger Steak (medium well for both) w/ onions, peppers & gravy, loaded mashed potatoes, Blue Crush lemonade & the Jamaican Cowboy (alcohol) drink w/ a kicker. The rolls are absolutely Delicious!

The food in this place is very good, I have even had the opportunity to go to one of these restaurants in another country and the quality is the same. I regularly go to the restaurant in Apex, but this one is closer to me now and we decided to go. Logically the food is VERY good, but the service was slow, not bad but slow. That's why the sign they have inside the employee area caught my attention, which I took a photo of, but I think they sometimes forget about it.

This is our favorite spot for a great steak. Their chilli is always good too. Best sweet potato I've had in awhile. There's always a wait here. That's the only downside. Best steak I've had since moving to NC from NJ. Hands down. I highly recommend.

I went out to eat with my husband and step-son. We tried to call ahead to get on the list but their automated answering said to download the YELP app and get in the waiting list that way. I downloaded the app, searched for Texas Roadhouse and it shows up on the page to "join wait-list," which I did. I chose party of 3 and it showed my wait time and said to arrive in 10-15mins, which was the drive there. I got a text with further instructions on what to do when I got there. When I got there, there was a long line of people waiting to be seated. Per instructions from Yelp, I spoke to the person at the door who checked us on the list. We literally only waited 4 minutes before being seated, allowing my husband to park the car and walk over. We got a text saying to go to the front of the line to be seated. So we did. By far, best thing ever! The food was awesome, as always. I got the key lime margarita which was delicious! The steaks were cooked to perfection, which hasn't happened in a while, so we were extremely happy. I miss the dancing they used to do, but they did make the rounds singing their birthday song. Overall, great experience!

I am a loyal Texas Roadhouse Customer and have been to several different locations. Dined here last week and the experience definitely could’ve been better. The food was great as always, but the service was lacking. Most of the staff seemed as if they were on another planet. We were seated at one table, and after they got us our drinks told us they’d sat us in the wrong section and moved us. Our waitress was nice but she wasn’t the most attentive. I don’t blame this on her, I’m sure they are short staffed. Everything seemed rather discombobulated.

I was so impatient. I understand the staff may be under staff so I tired to bare with the staff. My waiter was so busy. My host Jade, kept checking on me. She made me feel important. Then I was spoiled by both of the mangers. Sam was very impressive the way she constantly checked on me. I enjoyed this location it was my first time dinning there

Well, since my husband and I visited in February this year, I’m sure the Covid situation has impacted the service. There seemed to be several workers but a little of the cordiality was missing - The manager on duty who was also our server was friendly and efficient- adjusted our bill accordingly for my husband’s entree that was undercooked at the bone in part- The chef should know to cut a tiny bit along side a steak to achieve a well done but not burnt steak. My ribeye was excellent and out house salads were freshly prepared and actually very very good. The music was really loud even though this is the standard for this chain. The meat display locker at the entrance was dirty- I was really surprised- even though no food was in the locker. My husband had really looked forward to coming but he was really disappointed in his steak. We do plan to come back but it will be awhile.I’m not sure if people like myself who don’t appreciate the noise level would want this experience but if a person can and want a decent steak at a reasonable price(12 ounce ribeye entree, 20 ounce bone in ribeye entree and two drinks $58 plus tip), this is worth trying. Also, easily accessible off the Durham NC I-85 guess road exit- also located to several stores and a couple of fast food places, Costco and not to far from a major hospital and accommodations- easy parking - accessible friendly- the entrance doors are a little heavy for me to open.
