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

December 3, 2022

With more than 600 locations around the world and more to come, Texas Roadhouse will soon bring a new outpost to San Diego's South County.

Founded by W. Kent Taylor in Indiana in 1993, Texas Roadhouse now operates more than 607 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 are already two Texas Roadhouse locations in San Diego's County, one in Oceanside that has been open since 2016 and the other off Fletcher Parkway in El Cajon that unveiled in March 2020. A third area branch will soon install in a 6,893 square-foot former medical office near the I-805 ramp in San Diego's South County city of National City. The location hopes to open by mid-2023 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.

The new San Diego Texas Roadhouse aims to open in 2023 at 1908 Sweetwater Road in National City. For more information, visit
