Texas Roadhouse is one of my favourite casual-dining steakhouse franchises. To me, it represents an untouchable value for money proposition – excellent food, excellent service at an affordable price. There are no less than five outlets in Dubai now, this latest La Mer branch included. Kitted out in its all-American, Western-themed corporate uniform, the restaurant is located in the middle of La Mer, not far from burger specialists Five Guys.
Speaking of whom, we actually ended up at Texas Roadhouse because of this banner they had proclaiming that their burgers are more legendary than the other guys.
We ordered an all-American Cheeseburger, Jalapeno Burger and the Cheeseburger Sliders. Interestingly, Texas Roadhouse is only one of a few franchises which does not ask how you want your burger cooked. They serve all their burgers to their medium-well default. This is for health and safety reasons rather than anything else. Food Network states that the interior of a raw hamburger usually contains a degree of bacteria and is safest if cooked well done. I always order my steaks medium-rare but my burgers medium to medium-well. Anyway, our burgers were amazing although next time I will order the Cheeseburger and not the humongous Jalapeno Burger.
Service at Texas Roadhouse is excellent. The staff are super friendly, courteous and accommodating. In fact, I can think of few franchises which can beat them in this area.
So, if you’re looking for great steaks, burgers or kababs at affordable prices I can think of few places better than this amazing franchise.
Waste NOT. Want NOT.
