“Legendary food and legendary service” is what people can expect from Texas Roadhouse, according to Loucks.
“All the food is made from scratch,” she said “Hand-cut steaks, fall-off-the-bone rubs, made-from-scratch sides and dressings, legendary margaritas and ice-cold beer.”
On Friday and Saturday, the local restaurant is hosting an invitation-only pre-opening event, and will help raise money for the American Cancer Society.
"This incredible organization helps thousands of families each year, in their greatest hour of need," said Texas Roadhouse managing partner Joe Hamlet. "We're proud to partner with this wonderful organization and can't imagine a better way to celebrate our opening than by helping agencies that serve so many families across this community."
In 2012 Texas Roadhouse was named Top Steakhouse in the Nation's Restaurant News' Consumer Picks survey, and in 2007 and 2008 Forbes Magazine ranked the company as one of the 200 Best Small Companies.
The restaurant officially opens the doors at 100 Stonegate Center on Monday, December 9 from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m.
According to Loucks, the restaurant has created 170 new jobs in the area, hiring individuals from around the community.
