Danbury Texas Roadhouse Celebrates Seventh Anniversary



Text Size

Texas Roadhouse at 74 Newtown Road in Danbury opened its doors in June of 2017 and will be celebrating their seventh anniversary in June. Since day one, Texas Roadhouse has been the Greater Danbury area’s go-to for ice cold beers, legendary margaritas, fresh baked bread, fall-off-the-bone ribs, made-from-scratch sides and salad dressings, and hand-cut steak.

Texas Roadhouse of Danbury will have an anniversary celebration in store from May 29 to June 4, where guests can dine in to celebrate and pick up an envelope for lots of fabulous prizes. Then the following week, they can come back to the store to open their envelope and claim their prize. These prizes include free meals, free appetizers, gift packs from local businesses, and much more.

Being an active part of the community is one of the driving goals of Texas Roadhouse. The location works hard to be a community-focused and community-involved restaurant through in-house fundraisers and supporting community events. They do fundraising events with local schools and nonprofits, and support local food banks and animal rescues by hosting Dine to Donate food drives. Texas Roadhouse also has strong business partnerships, from hosting breakfast for Harley Davidson of Danbury and sponsoring Danbury’s baseball team to holding a Dine To Donate supporting the Iraq and Afghanistan Memorial Wall Foundation.

The restaurant’s mascot, Andy Armadillo, loves to be out and about in the community, visiting and taking part in all of Texas Roadhouse’s local events. Texas Roadhouse also honors local heroes all year round with special first responder and veteran discounts, as well as veteran parking.

Matthew Wood is the managing partner and joined the location in September of 2022. He began his career at Texas Roadhouse over 18 years ago as a Server Assistant in the West Haven location.

“Woody” is joined by a supportive team consisting of Ally (Service Manager) three years, Lauren (Kitchen Manager) seven years, Chris (Back of House Key) seven years, Loren (Local Store Marketer) five years, Ben (Front of House Key) five years, and Jennifer (Front of House Key) who just joined the team.

Loren Daly is the local store marketer for the Danbury location and noted Texas Roadhouse as being a casual, energetic, family-friendly spot for patrons to enjoy.

The restaurant, Daly said, strives “to be the best, cleanest, and friendliest in town.”

Whether diners are looking to have a meal at the restaurant or taken to-go, Daly says Texas Roadhouse continues to serve up its signature “legendary food and legendary service.” It carries the legacy of the restaurant’s founder Kent Taylor, who passed away three years ago.

Starting in July, Texas Roadhouse will host kids nights every Tuesday, featuring fun stuff for children with more information to come at a later date.

A Sample Of The Menu:

Starters: The Cactus Blossom is Texas Roadhouse’s signature appetizer. The Combo Appetizer lets customers pick three items from boneless wings, fried pickles, twisted mozzarella, snake bites, or potato skins.

Burgers and Sandwiches: Texas Roadhouse uses tender, slow-cooked pork covered in the restaurant’s signature BBQ sauce for its pulled pork sandwich. Another standout is the Smokehouse Burger, made of half a pound of fresh ground chuck topped with sautéed onions, mushrooms, BBQ sauce, American cheese, and jack cheese. Both sandwiches are served on a toasted Texas-sized bun with steak fries and pickle chips.

Salads: Of the more than half a dozen salad options, there is the Steakhouse Filet Salad with Italian and blue cheese dressing, topped with blue cheese crumbles, bacon bits, tender filet strips, tomatoes, red onions, and croutons. It is also served with a side of creamy blue cheese. The Chicken Critter Salad has hot, crispy strips of chicken on a bed of cold greens with cheddar and jack cheeses, tomato, egg, and bacon.

Country Dinners: The Country Fried Sirloin consists of hand-battered, fresh-cut sirloin that is cooked crispy and golden, then topped with cream gravy. It is served with two sides.

Hand-Cut Steaks and Ribs: Hand-cut steak and fall-off-the-bone ribs.

Chicken: Chicken Critters are all white meat chicken tenders that are golden-fried and lightly crispy. The herb-crusted chicken is boneless, marinated chicken breast that is seasoned with a blend of herbs and spices, before being flame-grilled and served with a caramelized lemon. Both meals are served with two sides.

Kids’ Meals: The Lil’ Dillo Steak Bites are grilled filet pieces served with one side and a kid-sized soft drink, juice, or milk.

Sides and Extras: All the sides are made from scratch, and there are fresh baked rolls and honey cinnamon butter.

Beverages: On a hot summer day, popular drinks are fresh-brewed sweet tea, flavored lemonades, and Legendary Margarita.

Dessert: Treats include a Big Ole Brownie Sundae, strawberry cheesecake, and Granny’s Classic Apple Pie.
