My Favorite Photos: Texas Roadhouse

After a recent trip to Greenville, SC we headed back home to Spartanburg, SC. However we were hungry so we decided to stop in the small town of Taylors for a meal at a place called Texas Roadhouse. We recently got one in our city and it certainly looks popular judging by how many cars are there. The one in Taylors has been around for awhile I think, so people have gotten over the "new resturant" phase so it wasn't too crowded. Daisy got steak and shrimp which she really liked. I wasn't unhappy there, but I was a bit disappointed. It's very "country" even for a steakhouse. For example they have complementary peanuts to eat, but this leaves a mess on the floor and it's everywhere. Nobody was in much of a hurry to grab a broom and sweep it up.

  4. When my daughter was little, those peanut hulls all over the floor distressed her terribly!

  5. Peanut shells make a mess, and I've never seen anyone eager to sweep them up.

  7. I thought the "Round Ground" Steak Houses of the 70's to the 90's in Minnesota were great with this novel idea of getting FREE peanuts with your meal and beer and the shells just all over the floor.
    Peanut shells on a floor that will be swept up after closing hardly constitutes a "dirty restaurant". I am sure
    if food from plates was spilt, the brooms and buckets of water would appear PRONTO!

    PS: I recently was told whilst reminiscencing with friends
    about Eating Places in the USA - upmarked and WELL above the level of MacDonalds, Kentucky Friend etc. that "the Round Ground Chain" is no more! That is a shame if true - the food was excellent quality.

  8. That steak house has them in all their places. Most people like good food and laid back atmosphere. At least, you seem to be keeping Daisy happy. That is good. These places are very popular in Texas.

  11. Speaking of peanut shells, my husband got a laugh when I bring ziplock bag to ballpark and keep my peanut shells in the bag and throw in the trash can on the way out, he said "so Singaporean", coming from a place like Singapore, the cleanest country in the world, no one litter and you won't see trash on the street, my husband always brag to his friend "you could eat out of the subway floor", it is shiny like a mirror and no trash in sight.

    1. So true Kirsty.
      And God help gum eaters - I think at Changi International Airport all gum is confiscated.
      I recall bins being in the clearance area when coming in to holiday there. PUT ALL GUM HERE!!!!
      The footpaths in Singapore are the cleanest in the World and also God help "Spitters".

  12. That's the appeal of the place to a lot of people. Getting to throw the peanut shells on the floor. My kids love it because they wouldn't get away with it at home. We love the free bread they give out too.

  13. Don't know how I would feel about the peanuts shells being underneath my feet and all untidy on the floor - if it's the custom, then have to move with that.

  14. Omgosh. I hate those places with the peanuts on the floor! We have a couple of restaurants here like that. I don't care if the food is good; there are peanuts all in the floor! Haha

  15. O, that's my favorite place to eat of all times...they have a sweet potato that is pure Heaven...they sweep their floors every single night and it;s just plain fun to go in, eat peanuts and just drop them on the floor...a really fun place and ours here in Lubbock has amazing food.

  16. That plate of food looks delicious! Our farm supply store, Theisens, used to have free peanuts (and peanut shells on the floor). I enjoyed the peanuts enough that I never minded, but I've never been to a restaurant like that.
