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.

Luxury Diner – Cheyenne

We left Colorado and headed north to Wyoming. Why? Because I’d never been to Wyoming, and seeing as how it was so close, I thought we should check it out. Ugh. I don’t know about the rest of Wyoming, but there isn’t anything to do or see in Cheyenne. Even the landscape was blah. Just vast and flat and lifeless, like their downtown area. So we had to eat something, and we ended up at Luxury Diner. The name is funny because it’s so beyond not luxurious. But it is kind of cute.
Here’s S’s chef salad. We were still outmeated from the day before, so we were both craving vegetables. There are plenty of veggies here, but there’s also plenty of cheese and cold cuts. I don’t know where these mushrooms came from, but they must have been fed steroids.
I got a side salad instead of fries with my meal. Oh this salad was more than welcome in my belly. Crunchy fresh vegetables. My body had so missed them!
My main meal was a turkey club. Come on now, who doesn’t like a good ‘ol turkey club every now and then? And this turkey club was quite good! Service was friendly and the food showed up quick. But we were the only ones eating there. All in all, it was a nice, quick, and cheap little meal!
