Yeah, you made a bad choice, Texas Roadhouse used to be OK when they first opened. For a very short period. Maybe a month or two.

I ate there once because some friends wanted to go. Never again- mediocre food and waaay too loud. The only part that was worth it was that my son, who was just a little guy at the time, was thoroughly fascinated that it was okay to eat peanuts and throw the shells on the floor.

My younger son always wants to eat there. I decline for just the reasons mentioned. There are other places I can't stand, too. The very worst is the "Waffle House" chain. Bad food, bad smells, bad service, too much noise.
I had a granddaughter who had been seeing the local version and had been clamoring to eat there. So one morning I took her. It was an eye opener for her. Her first words inside the door was "it stinks". She didn't even like the metal and plastic decor. The food came and she could only take a few bites. Too awful. Around here its gotten the reputation for being a place where drunks go before swerving their way home.
While I tend to agree with the comments above about chains and especially those with "Texas" in the name, our local version of Longhorn Steak House isn't always terrible. Its my guess that the places with "Texas" aren't run by Texans. Just yankees trying to make a dishonest buck by appropriating the name.

Paul, you're not old, people are just loud and obnoxious anymore. They all try to out asshole each other with no consideration of how those around them feel about it. I think the problem stems from people having their heads so far up their own asses that they can't hear what's going on around them, so they make up for it by yelling so others can hear.
