Texas Roadhouse - East Meadow

It's a rootin' tootin' good time at the Roadhouse, but how's the food? Check out Alex and Lauren's latest review.

Everyone from college students to kiddies to grandma Angie, seem to have a great time at in East Meadow. It's currently the ONLY Texas Roadhouse on the Island.

Unlimited peanuts that you crack open and throw on the floor sets the stage for this rootin’ tootin’ feel good restaurant and bar. The variety is large, the food is cheap and the freshly baked rolls with cinnamon honey butter are sinfully delicious!!

In the midst of munching on peanuts and our rolls, Alex and I excitedly ordered the Fried Pickles – A heaping basket of pickle chips hand-battered, golden-fried and served with Ranch. Jersey Shore’s Snookie would be IN HEAVEN. They were crisp and not too greasy. We had salads as well, which are obviously the most fattening salads on the planet served with eggs, cheese and croutons…. But of course, we loved them.

I ordered the Grilled BBQ Chicken served with rice. It was a relatively small portion of chicken, but marinated well. One certainly can’t compare it to Smokin’ Al’s BBQ Chicken, but I was satisfied. Alex opted for the New York Strip Steak served with mushrooms on top and mashed potatoes on the side.

You can’t help leaving Texas Roadhouse full and satisfied. However, while their menu offers a large variety of BBQ and fried favorites, one can contend that the quality of meat could still be improved upon…. even for a restaurant aiming to maintain reasonable prices.  Alex was a bit disappointed saying there was “nothing memorable” about his entrée… valid point. While I’d still choose Texas Roadhouse over The Outback, Alex disagreed. 

Subsequent to a thorough discussion, Alex and I reached an accord on the Texas Roadhouse rating… giving it 3 Dinner Mints out of a possible 5, equating to a classification of “Good.”

One more thing.............do you honestly believe that a legitimate customer/person would make this reference on a public forum in regard to women "The Roadhouse being busy, is not an indication that the food is good, or good for you ... any more than Le Cafe being busy, indicates the women there look good." do you truly believe referencing the looks of women at an establishment is not a person that is bitter or has a hidden agenda? again facts or no facts, I stand by my original statements.

I don't think he me.ant to degrade anyone. If you read his posts not really his style. He hammers home facts. My point is and always has been if the place is busy people must think it is good. That is a personal opinion.

Frank, The article was a review of food in which the writers gave a tepid recommendation of the food. I said it sucked. You said it was good. We all stated our opinions. We disagreed. Really no big deal. Posting the nutritional values of course has no effect on the flavor of the food, nor did I infer it did, but it does allow people to evaluate their choices. This is especially important for people who are dealing with cholestorol issues, celiac disease (gluten-free), diabetes, shellfish allergies, or for those who are concerned enough with their health to take the time to review what they are eating. Not making an informed decision, or being provided with the information to do so, is what I would call stupidity.

DLee, Your first post is Patch is to attack me because I didn’t like the food at a local restaurant, while fabricating a claim with no basis whatsoever, that I must be part of a local failing business? It appears as if you might have more of a vested interest in the local restaurant business, than me, because I have none. As far as the nutritional information requirements I posted, they were cut & pasted from the link provided, based on a federal law. There is no such thing, as too much knowledge and information! As for the rest of your nonsensical ranting ... it doesn't deserve a response.
