‘Legendary Food And Service’ At Texas Roadhouse
Those seeking a slice of southern cooking up north need look no further than Texas Roadhouse, located at 74 Newtown Road in Danbury.
The Danbury branch opened in June of 2017 and is one of the chain’s three locally operated locations.
Managing Partner Matthew Rusinko and legendary store marketer Loren Daly lead Texas Roadhouse in 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.”
In the wake of COVID-19, Texas Roadhouse has set up dividers between each table, put employee health checks in place, and has a sanitation coordinator on staff during every shift.
Indoor dining is also available and operating at half its capacity to accommodate social distancing guidelines.
Whether diners are looking to have a meal indoors, outdoors, or taken to-go, Daly says Texas Roadhouse continues to serve up its signature “legendary food and service.”
That means fresh, never frozen, ingredients; sides made from scratch; hand-cut steaks; and an on-site meat cutter “in a room cold enough to snow,” Daly adds.
For takeout and curbside service, customers can order online or at the new take-out window.
Quality service does not end there, as community involvement is always important for Texas Roadhouse through fundraisers and community partners.
