Cheyenne Is A Dining Wasteland – So We Go To Texas Roadhouse

Seriously though, I think the Luxury diner, where we went for lunch, is the only non-chain restaurant in Cheyenne. Really, I’m not exaggerating much at all. So in a sea of chains, I reached for the least of all evils. And this is how we ended up at Texas Roadhouse. And you know what? We had a great time and they were just about the nicest people on earth. Since this was S’s first visit to one of these, they just brought out three complimentary sides so we could try them and so she could decide what to pick. Who am I to say no to free samples? The chili? Ok. I was curious about it, so I’m happy we got to try it. The beans? Really sweet. The mashed potatoes? Delicous! And don’t forget their bread with the whipped cinnamon butter. Ok. I love the bread that they give you here. Like deeply.
S had wanted the portobello mushroom chicken, but they were all out of portobellos. Doesn’t quite work without them, I guess. So she got the smothered chicken instead which comes with sauteed onions and button mushrooms. I don’t know how they do it, but the chicken is amazingly juicy and tender here. But these steak fries? They look frightening to me.
I was still not feeling meat at all, so I got a country veg plate, where you can select 4 sides of your choice, one of which can be a salad. So here’s the house salad with the italian dressing. Ok, I know you’re going to think I’m crazy, but really, I love this salad more than I love most salads. Their italian dressing is just perfect. It really is. I could eat this salad with this dressing all day. My other picks were broccoli, seasoned rice, and baked sweet potato. The broccoli was just fine. My body was craving some green vegetables. The seasoned rice? Skip it. It tasted like it came from one of those bags. The sweet potato was great though. But then, it was slathered with butter and brown sugar, so how bad could it have been? The service was good and the girls were extremely friendly. I’ve eaten at one of these before and liked it. Honestly, it’s good food at low prices. When you have a sea of chains to choose from, this is certainly not a bad choice.

  1. With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation?
    My website has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either created myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement. Do you know any techniques to help protect against content from being stolen? I’d

    haha…..too funny.

    Those photos of iceberg lettuce salads give me the chills, as this was a reality I once faced. I used to live in Cheyenne (and I sent this to some other friends)…….Everytime I go back there to visit I just buy food from the Vitamin Cottage and cook at home. Or eat at Chipotle.

    Naturally, I don’t think you’ll be finding your way back there, but if you do, the plains hotel is generally OK, and not a franchise;
