INDIO — Texas Roadhouse, named by Newsweek as one of America’s Best Customer Service Restaurants in the Casual Dining category, is coming to Indio, Miguel Ramirez-Cornejo, economic development manager confirmed Feb.21.

The project, which will be located at Jackson Street and Interstate 10, proposes the development of a 9,083-square-foot sit-down, full-service restaurant on 0.879 of an acre parcel of land. There will be 34 on-site parking spaces with additional off-site parking in the Indio Towne Center to be provided via a shared parking agreement.

Texas Roadhouse opened its doors in 1993. Since then, the company has grown to more than 520 locations and 10 foreign countries. It is famous for its hand-cut steaks, fall-off-the-bone ribs, made-from-scratch sides, and fresh-baked bread.

The chain’s restaurants average 5,000 guests per week, which is one of the highest in the industry. They serve 300,000 meals per day. The average Texas Roadhouse is 6,700 – 7,500 square feet and seats 291 guests. It serves our ice-cold draft beer at 36-degrees Fahrenheit. The restaurant offers 15
varieties of Legendary Margaritas. Its No. 1 seller is the 6-ounce USDA Choice Sirloin.
Steaks account for 44% of the eatery’s menu.

Each Texas Roadhouse restaurant employs a butcher and a baker. The butchers, or meat cutters, hand-cut each and every steak that we serve. Meat cutters work in 34-degree coolers and cut an average of $1 million of meat a year per store.

The bakers are responsible for making the restaurant’s yeast rolls from scratch every day. Their legendary bread is baked fresh every five minutes and served piping hot along with homemade cinnamon butter to guests as they are seated.

Texas Roadhouse is based in Louisville, Kentucky. The company’s first restaurant was founded across the Ohio River in nearby Clarksville, Ind., in 1993.

No word yet on when the popular restaurant will open.
