Global Chain Texas Roadhouse To Open Location In San Diego's East County

September 11, 2019

With more than 500 locations around the world, Texas Roadhouse will soon open a more central location in San Diego County.

Founded by W. Kent Taylor in Indiana in 1993, Texas Roadhouse now operates more than 580 locations around the United States, as well as in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, the Philippines, Mexico, and Taiwan. The restaurants are known for the free buckets of peanuts at each table, line dancing waitstaff, Willie Nelson-themed tables, and a classic American scratch-made menu of hand-cut steaks, fall-off-the-bone ribs, house-made sides, and fresh-baked bread. Being their top menu item is an 11-ounce USDA Choice Sirloin and every table receives homemade rolls, each Texas Roadhouse store employs its own butcher and baker to ensure quality.

There is already a Texas Roadhouse location in San Diego's North County neighborhood of Oceanside that has been open since 2016. A second area branch will soon install in the space that last housed On The Border Mexican Grill & Cantina at 103 Fletcher Parkway in El Cajon. The location hopes to open by year's end and will have a full liquor license. The walls of each Texas Roadhouse are adorned with murals that are created specifically for each restaurant, with paintings designed to reflect the local community. Each mural is still approved by founder and CEO Kent Taylor.
