Yes, you can still get unlimited rolls at Texas Roadhouse when you order an entree. The rolls are soft, sweet and are accompanied by a delightful honey cinnamon butter that you won’t find anywhere else. They also serve this with a bucket of peanuts which is, of course, also free.

Texas Roadhouse uses 100% refined soybean oil whenever they are cooking.

Not only does it serve free and unlimited rolls, Texas Roadhouse also offers free buckets of peanuts in the shell at every table and the bar.

Texas Roadhouse VS Outback VS Ruth Chris?: What’s the best steakhouse chain?

How does Texas Roadhouse compare to other steakhouse competitors in terms of cost, ambiance, and taste? Here’s my in-depth analysis. 

Texas Roadhouse vs. Outback

Price Difference: Texas Roadhouse’s early bird discounts are $10.99, while regular priced dinners range from $14 to $20. The average Outback customer spends $20 or more per visit. So if you want to fill up on your favorite steak dish for less, Texas Roadhouse is the more affordable destination on average.

Atmosphere and Ambiance: Texas Roadhouse, the most popular steakhouse in the United States, is known for its boisterous, lively atmosphere. With blaring country music and a family-friendly environment this may not be the ideal spot for a romantic dinner, but it’s perfect for a fun night out with friends or family.

On the other hand, Outback Steakhouse offers a more subdued, Australian-themed ambiance that doesn’t go overboard with gimmicks. Instead, you’ll find tasteful maps, artwork, and subtle decorations, making it a more suitable choice for a quieter meal.

Steaks Comparison: Both steakhouses offer porterhouse steaks with Texas Roadhouse serving a 23-ounce steak for $33.99. Outback Steakhouse’s offers a 22-ounce Melbourne Porterhouse is a mouth-watering, juicy cut of steak that is sure to please even the most discerning steak lover. These steaks are comparable. 

Side Dishes: Texas Roadhouse is known for their legendary rolls with cinnamon-honey butter but falls short with its baked potato, which has unmelted cheese and chewy bacon. Outback Steakhouse impresses with its baked potato and Brussels sprouts, featuring crispy skin, perfectly melted cheese, and a premium presentation in mini cast-iron pans. I prefer the baked potato at Outback. 

In the battle of Texas Roadhouse vs. Outback Steakhouse, it’s clear that both chains deliver steak dinners at an affordable price. My opinion: My family dines at Texas Roadhouse on a regular basis. My kids enjoy the loud atmosphere and the free rolls. Texas Roadhouse is also one of the most affordable steakhouse options out there. 

Texas Roadhouse vs. Ruth Chris

Even though these are both steakhouses chains, they couldn’t be more different in terms of price, ambiance, and clientele.

Price Difference: The most striking difference between Ruth’s Chris Steak House and Texas Roadhouse are the menu prices. When you dine at Ruth’s Chris, you can expect to pay more than $100 for a party of two. In contrast, Texas Roadhouse is a more budget-friendly and casual option with affordable pricing like the eight-ounce filet mignon and two side dishes for $23. My family of four will regularly dine here for under $100. 

Atmosphere and Ambiance: Ruth’s Chris is a destination with impeccable service that’s a go-to for special occasions like a birthday or anniversary. If you have special dietary request or want to make off-menu customizations to your meal than Ruth’s Chris is the clear option. The impeccable service and sophisticated ambiance make for a once-in-a-lifetime dinner out. On the flip side, Texas Roadhouse is a fantastic place to take the kids or a large group of friends for a casual meal. 

menu options

A variety of menu options at Texas Roadhouse.

Steaks Comparison: Ruth’s Chris offers high-quality cuts of meat seared in savory butter and served on a sizzling hot plate. The rich flavor and tenderness of their steaks make them a favorite among steak lovers. While the cuts of meat at Texas Roadhouse may not be as premium as those at Ruth’s Chris, the steaks are still well-seasoned and cooked to perfection offering a satisfying meal at a more digestable price point.

Side Dishes: Both restaurants offer a variety of side dishes to complement their steaks. Ruth’s Chris is known for consistently delicious options such as sweet potato casserole and shrimp dishes, adding to the overall fine dining experience. Texas Roadhouse also has a range of tasty sides from classic favorites like mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, and green beans to more unique options like sweet potato fries and Texas chili.

Bottom line it’s difficult to compare these two steakhouse chains. If you’re looking for an upscale dining experience with with hand-cut steaks that are aged to perfect go with Ruth’s Chris. If you’re a family with little kids looking for a place to hang out and get loud, go to Texas Roadhouse.

Are there any menu hacks at Texas Roadhouse?

Here are some of my favorite menu hacks to help save money or create something you’ve never tried before.

Filet Medallion Hack

Did you know that you can get more food but at a cheaper value in Texas Roadhouse? By ordering the filet medallion for $24.99, you can get 9 oz of steak instead of the 8 oz Dallas Filet for $28.99. This is a savings of 15% while getting a larger portion of protein. 

Free Appetizer 

When you sign up for the Texas Roadhouse VIP Club, you get a free appetizer when you join like the Cactus Blossom regularly priced at $6.00. When you join, you’ll also be emailed limited-time coupons and an annual birthday voucher.

Buy Gift Cards in Bulk to Save 10%

When you order $1,000 or more in gift cards you’ll get a 10% discount. This is a terrific way to give friends, family members, or employees a gift they’re sure to enjoy.

Skip the Appetizers

You already know that Texas Roadhouse gives out free rolls and peanuts so why spend more when you can already have this as an appetizer? This is the ultimate tip for any cheap skate. Don’t forget the water is also free. 

Margarita Monday

Ask for a To-go Box

With all the sides and large entrees available at Texas Roadhouse, I almost always have leftovers to take home. This makes the perfect meal to warm-up for lunch the next day. And yes, you can box up any leftover rolls to take home as well.

Order your steak with the “Texas Roadhouse seasoning” on the side. This way, you can control how much seasoning to add to the steak.

Ask for a “Texas Roadhouse salad” instead of a regular salad. The Texas Roadhouse salad is made with fresh greens, grilled chicken, bacon, tomatoes, cucumbers, and cheddar cheese. This salad is also tossed in a delicious ranch dressing.

Ask for your steak to be cooked “black and blue.” This means that the outside of the steak will be cooked to a nice crust, while the inside will be cool and medium rare.

Ask for your steak to be cut into strips. This is a great way to share your steak with friends or family. Why put in the work to cut the steak yourself when a professional can do it instead?

Order a “Texas Roadhouse sampler” to try a variety of different dishes. This is a great way to find your new favorite dish and will cost $16.00 at most locations.
