TEXAS ROADHOUSE: The Original @TexasRoadhouse Experience now in Manila!





As featured 10 Most Awesome NEW (Franchised) Restaurants in Manila 2016!

Texas Roadhouse
Texas Roadhouse Manila is the first Southeast Asian franchise (second next to Taiwan in Asia) of the popular western steak and ribs concept founded in Indiana in 1993.

They're famous for their hand-cut steaks, fall-off-the-bone ribs, made-from-scratch sides, fresh-baked bread, and the legendary margarita.

Texas Roadhouse
The moment you enter the restaurant you are greeted with happy servers and high-energy country music. The branch is decorated with elements typical of a roadhouse--Native American murals, neon signs, western red cider timber, stuffed animals, and galvanized metal.

Texas Roadhouse
They have a fully functioning bar perfect for sports enthusiasts who can watch on the LCD screens from their seats. The bestsellers are the draft beers and legendary margaritas.

The restaurant is 500 sqm including the outdoor sitting area with a capacity of 300 guests. The aisles in between the tables are a bit narrow but add to the quaint ambiance.

 

Texas Roadhouse
✮ Margarita (Original 10oz P165 / 18oz P275)

The legendary margaritas use a slushy kind of ice, which is like drinking a smoothie. Tip: Have the bartender add extra Patron for an additional kick.

 

 Texas Roadhouse
Eat as many peanuts as you want while you wait for your order and feel free to throw the shells on the floor.

 

Texas Roadhouse
I was impressed with their complimentary bread that's freshly baked every five minutes! It's soft, always served hot, with their own cinnamon butter.

 

Texas Roadhouse 
Combo Appetizer: Buffalo Wings, Rattlesnake Bites and Potato Skins (P525)

The Rattlesnake Bites is our favorite with diced jalapenos and jack cheese that oozes in every bite. Best to pair with their ranch dressing.

We also prefer the potato skins topped with cheddar cheese and bacon. Pair this appetizer with some sour cream.

   

MAIN DISHES 

Texas Roadhouse
Sirloin 6oz (P595)

Their 6-ounce sirloin is one of the most popular steaks. It's quite hearty and lean.

They import U.S. grain-fed choice beef and the steaks are hand-cut by trained butchers inside their walk-in cooler. It is seasoned, seared, and grilled over an open flame.

 

Texas Roadhouse
✮ Bone-in Ribeye (22oz P2,725)

The 22-ounce Bone-in Ribeye is the most flavorful steak they have in the menu. It is very hearty with a lot of meat, plus the marbling and the bone give it more flavor.

 

Texas Roadhouse
The steak is best eaten medium and already good without any sauce!

 

Texas Roadhouse 
Award-Winning Ribs (Half slab P685/ Full Slab P995)

To fully experience the rib-eating experience, try it the messy way with your hands. They only have the classic BBQ flavor, it would be nice to have a sweet or spicy option.

 

Texas Roadhouse
It takes 3-days to prepare their ribs to achieve the tender meat that literally falls off the bones.

 

Texas Roadhouse
Pork Chops, Beef Steak Tips, and Oven Roasted Chicken

Two bone-in pork chops. grilled beef steak tips smothered in onion, mushrooms and gravy, and slow-roasted half chicken. A good option for family sharing.

 

SIDES

Texas Roadhouse
The mashed potato is mashed in-house and served with brown or cream gravy--made from scratch daily.

 

 Texas Roadhouse
The baked potato topped with cheddar and crispy bacon was piping hot and tasty.

 

Texas Roadhouse
One of the unique side dishes is the ✮ loaded sweet potato topped with marshmallow and drizzled with caramel and cinnamon butter sauce. Our favorite!

(Trivia: The marshmallow topping is intended to imitate a single serving of a well-known southern holiday treat, homemade sweet potato casserole.)

 

Texas Roadhouse
Filipinos would love the ✮ steak rice exclusively added to the Manila branch. The seasoned rice is quite tasty topped with a generous serving of fried garlic and huge chunks of steak.

  

Texas Roadhouse
Lil' Dilo Sirloin Bites (P295)

For kids, the ranger meals are a great deal. They have little steak bites that come with sidings. They use the same choice of meat as the 6 oz sirloin.

Mini-Cheeseburgers (P225)

The burger sliders come in two pieces. It's a little burger patty with cheese and freshly baked bread that's on the sweeter side.

 

DESSERTS

Frozen Turtle Pie (P275). Oreo crusted tart filled with salted caramel ice cream topped with roasted pecans, hard cracked chocolate and toffee sauce.

They serve non-baked desserts and I like this ice cream on an Oreo crust topped with roasted pecan to provide texture and to cut through the sweetness. 

 

image
Apple Crumble (P225). Freshly stewed granny stewed apples topped with oatmeal walnut crumble and served with vanilla ice cream on the side.

A nice version of Apple pie a la mode. Order this if you want to end with a light and refreshing dessert. 

 

Texas Roadhouse

We love that Texas Roadhouse makes everything from scratch starting from the bread, hand-cut steaks, delicious sides, home style dressings, and sauces. 

Start with the rattlesnake bites, peanuts, and legendary margaritas while you wait for your order. The 22oz Bone-in Ribeye is recommended so that you can fully appreciate the flavor. Make sure to order the Sweet Potato with marshmallows and steak rice for your sides. 

The meat of the ribs is tender and literally falls off the bones. I hope they have an option for a sweeter or spicy BBQ sauce. 

Budget about P800/head. It's a great place to celebrate special occasions with family or just hanging out with friends while you wait for the traffic to subside.

Congrats to The Bistro Group for a job well done in bringing this beloved American roadhouse franchise to Southeast Asia for the first time! :)

P.S. Check out the caricatures and murals created by two local artists in Louisville, KY USA--the home of the Founder and location of the Texas Roadhouse support center. Each artist has been painting or drawing for Texas Roadhouse restaurants for over 20 years.

P.P.S. The local Texas Roadhouse along Bonifacio High Street before is already renamed to Wild West Roadhouse and this is different from the original one from the US.
