The Texas Roadhouse, known for its western theme and steaks, was founded in 1993 in Clarkesville, Indiana and has since expanded to include over 300 locations in 46 states. Most restaurants have line dancing waiters and waitresses to entertain patrons, and every location has an area dubbed "Willie's Corner" featuring memorabilia from country music legend- and Roadhouse spokesman- Willie Nelson.
From Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits to Buffalo Wild Wings hot sauce, chain and franchise restaurants are popular destinations around the world. Eating out too frequently can be costly, not to mention that it's hard to control portion size, ingredients, or the style of cooking to suit your preferences.
