Hanny, who has been working at the steakhouse chain for two years, shares her favorite dishes to order when dining at Texas Roadhouse. The steak kebab is at the top of her list, a dish that never fails to satisfy her cravings.

When she gets the chance to take home up to $12.99 worth of food, she opts for the steak bites from the kid’s menu, requesting them to be cooked medium rare, a preference that the kitchen usually accommodates.

She shares, “Cuz I’m tight like that with the people who cook the steaks,” showcasing the camaraderie that exists among the staff.

To elevate her meal, Hanny adds a smother of jack cheese and mushrooms on the side, accompanied by the side of the kebab marinade, which doubles as a delightful dipping sauce for the steak bites.

A sweet potato loaded with marshmallow and caramel sauce completes her meal, offering a sweet counterpoint to the savory steak.

Additional Recommendations

Beyond her personal favorites, Hanny has other recommendations for those ordering at the restaurant. The green beans and the chili are standout choices, with the latter coming in a generous portion for an extra dollar.

For those with a penchant for spicy food, the snake bites, essentially spicy fried cheese balls, are a must-try, although she warns that they are so rich and spicy that she can only manage a few at a time.

Furthermore, Hanny highly recommends the butter rolls served with the chain’s iconic cinnamon butter, a fan favorite that has won the hearts of many.
