Texas Roadhouse in the Corona Hills Plaza is now open to the public. We went for dinner on the day it opened and it was packed… even at 4 PM.
When you walk in, you notice the freshly baked bread in the service window and the display case full of steaks. A nice start.
The hostess brought fresh bread with her when she showed us to our table. A bucket of peanuts was already waiting for us.
We started off with the Cheese Fries ($6.99), which are steak fries covered in cheese and bacon. The fries were seasoned very well and didn’t last long.

Update: 07/26/14: We went back and tried the Rattlesnake Bites ($4.99). Diced jalapeños and jack cheese. Awesome.
Between us, we tried the 8 oz. Sirloin ($12.99), the 10 oz. Ft. Worth Ribeye ($16.99) and the steak I’ve been waiting for, the Bone-In Ribeye ($24.99). All of the steaks were tender and well-seasoned, and came out from the kitchen very quickly.
Three out of our four steaks were cooked perfectly. The fourth didn’t quite make it to medium rare throughout, but I chalk that up to it being the first night. It was still a tasty steak.
The Ft. Worth Ribeye was my favorite of the night, and my sons and I are already looking forward to going back and trying the Porterhouse T-Bone and the Dallas Filet. I also see some Rattlesnake Bites (fried jalapeños and jack cheese) in our future.
I also added a Sidekick of shrimp ($6.99).
This is a good family steakhouse. The staff was friendly, the service was very good and the building is brand new.
The steaks are good too. We’ll be back.370 N. McKinley Street
