Traveling in Ohio with my son for a robotics conference is not exactly conducive to great eating, and our ONLY meal on the trip — not kidding, the rest of the time I ate protein bars — as at this low-to-medium American Steakhouse chain.
Peanuts on the floor at Texas Roadhouse in Sandusky OH.
The menu is VERY reasonable by my jaded California standards.
“Cactus Blossom” (aka fried onion) with Cajun Sauce. Pretty good but also very fried.
Side salad without tomatoes with ranch dressing. Pretty plain vanilla but edible.
Mac & Cheese. The waitress (she was super nice) confessed this was Kraft Mac & Cheese.
Fries and “Veggies” (brocoli and carrots).
BBQ chicken and corn (from the can?)
12 oz ribeye steak, medium rare, smothered in sauteed onions and mushrooms. Half rack of ribs and green beans with bacon. Sloppy, but not too bad. Ribs were sweet but meaty and fell off the bone. Steak was properly cooked. Beans might have been from the can, but they served.
A smaller (6oz) steak, smothered, with a loaded Baked Potato.
Bone in Rib-eye!
Well, I can’t say that Texas Roadhouse was actually good. But they did make a decent Old Fashioned and it was real — and relatively low carb — food. Far better than keto bars anyway.
