Fans of all-you-can-eat peanuts, yeast bread with cinnamon butter, and the notorious Road Kill now have their very first Nevada expansion for Texas Roadhouse. The restaurant in North Las Vegas opens to the public tonight.
Creating an informal “restaurant row” at Craig Road and Bruce Street in North Las Vegas, the substantial 7,518-square-foot, built-from-scratch restaurant features its own Vegas decor, including a mural. Every Texas Roadhouse has its own butcher and typically sells $1 million in steaks monthly. That Road Kill is really a 10-ounce chop steak, smothered in mushrooms, onions, and jack cheese.
One of the most-requested national chains yet to move into the state, the family restaurant sits close to the Cannery Casino & Hotel and be joined by the under construction Blaze Pizza, Cafe Rio, and the subs of Jersey Mike’s. A Habit Burger opened its doors a short walk from the roundhouse earlier this year.
Operating more than 450 national locations and noted for flying both an American and Texas state flag outside, the local interior will be large enough to host 273 diners at either tables or booth seating, and includes a “U” shaped bar in the middle of the restaurant.
On the large menu, “Texas-sized” burgers, sandwiches, steaks, and ribs and select locations offer 10-, 12-, and 16-ounce portions of prime rib.
Texas Roadhouse, 1380 E. Craig Road, North Las Vegas; 702-664-1522. Open daily from 4 to 10 p.m.
