The following is a 100% authentic, 100% real Texas Roadhouse review of the store located in Orlando, Florida. I was not provided a complimentary product or compensated in any way for this review.
I love steak. Steak, to me, is a meal that can either be a memorable and pleasurable experience or it can easily just be “meh”. While the steak dinner I had at Texas Roadhouse can’t be classified as my favorite, it was pretty solid overall, especially for a low-cost chain.

How is the food at Texas Roadhouse?
Let’s start with the nitty gritty – the food at Texas Roadhouse. I went to the Roadhouse in Orlando, FL near the Orlando International Airport with my wife on a “date night” one weekend. We ordered the following between the two of us:
- Sangria Margarita, Rocks
- Fried Pickles
- Dinner Salads (x2)
- USDA Choice Sirloin (medium-rare – x2)
- Texas Roadhouse Rolls
Overall, I’d say the food itself at Texas Roadhouse was very good – and didn’t break the bank. It’s hard to go out for a “date night” these days for under $50. We opted for drinks instead of dessert on our trip. I had the Sangria Margarita and it was very good and quite big!
The steaks – the most important part of a steak dinner, were cooked very well, and actually came out medium-rare, as ordered. Improperly cooked steak at a “steakhouse” is one of my biggest culinary pet peeves. Road House got theirs right.
Everything else was good as well, but not the best I’ve had. The friend pickles were flavorful and there was a good sized portion of them. The salads were good; I believe Road House’s dressings are also all made from scratch. You can choose from ranch, low-fat ranch, honey mustard, thousand island, Italian, or bleu cheese.
How is the atmosphere at Texas Roadhouse?
Texas Roadhouse looks like many other steakhouse chains – on the inside and on the outside. This look isn’t bad, it’s just somewhat typical. The outside is adorned with Texas touches and quite a bit of neon lights.
The inside has lots of booths and peanut shells on the floor. You walk past the grill on your way in the front door. There are barrels of peanuts up front as well.
Overall, the atmosphere and “feel” of a Texas Roadhouse likely won’t be a unique experience, but I don’t think that’s what anyone expects walking in the door of your fairly typical American chain steakhouse.@TexasRoadhouse is about what you'd expect from a chain steakhouse #Review Click To Tweet
How is the service at Texas Roadhouse on S. Semoran in Orlando?
The service was satisfactory at the S. Semoran location. Clearly our server was a professional server. She approached our table at the right times, and not too many times.
Our beverages never saw the bottom and were refilled promptly.
We were gently up-sold on alcoholic beverages and desserts, but not to the point of being pushy.
And our server was also knowledgeable of the menu and was easily able to provide suggestions and opinions, when asked.
