I've eaten here a few times, mostly with my dad who loves their prime rib. What prompted me to write this review was my most recent visit. Our waitress, who is one of the few people with a name more unique than my own (Zsa Zsa), was an absolute pleasure. She returned my silly banter with ease and made the experience an excellent one. The food is their anchor, it always tastes the same and never do you get unpleasantly surprised. I would recommend trying the fried pickle chips for an appetizer, and some form of red meat for the entree. Can't go wrong.
Food is the typical chain fare - burgers, sandwiches, etc... Servers seem to wish they were elsewhere. Sealing the deal on this review was the constant background noise at the bar, like somebody pissed off a 900 lb cricket...
So this will be brief. They are open 11am-11pm. Walked in. No staff greeted me. Actually there was no staff on the ENTIRE floor. Oh yea, no customers in the ENTIRE place at 4pm. NO JOKE!! Sooooooo I wait......and wait.......and wait......nuttin. FINALLY, a Shaffer member comes out the back. She immediately gets eye contact with me. So in that split second of opportunity she turned and walked away. No HEY SOMEONE WILL BE WITH YOU....SORRY FOR THE DELAY.....nuttin. so I left....went to a competitor only about 100 yards away and was greeted with a smile and WELCOME........hmmmm....AND they had customers!!........interesting...

We stopped here on Saturday night because it didn't look as busy as Texas Roadhouse. We were greeted promptly and seated quickly. We had 4 adults and 1 child and they crammed us in a booth. Not much elbow room. We decided we would get the pick 2 for 20.00. We ordered the queso dip and boneless wings for the appetizer. It took an unusually long amount of time for the appetizers to come out. We joked that they would bring the appetizer with the meals. They must have heard us because that is exactly what happened. They brought the appetizers out and set them on the table and no more than 30 seconds later the food came out. Since we were crammed in a booth there was no way all that food would fit on our table so they assured us they would take the meals back and keep them warm until we were ready. What? The appetizers were good. Then they brought the food out. I had the sirloin and baked potato. The sirloin was a rough cut of meat but tasted good. The baked potato was something else. I'm not sure what was wrong with it but the texture and flavor were totally off. My daughter got the kids mac and cheese and it was served cold and dry. They took it back and made her a new one but it was still bad. It's blue box Kraft Mac and Cheese which is like 33 cents and they charged 4.99. That's not right. The reason I gave this 3 stars instead of a lower rating is because of our waitress who was top notch and super nice and the manager who comped our meals. That rarely happens anymore especially without asking for the meal to be comped. That in itself was quite a surprise for us and it was really appreciated.
Sat at the bar and was glad I did, Christin is very attentive, always smiling and great under pressure. She had more customers than any of the other wait staff to wait on and performed flawlessly...
Yes--It's an Applebees.... So you know what to expect. My two cents: My family and i have eaten there a number of times and also picked up 'take out' orders several times and have always been very happy. Felt the need to make a post and thank the team at this local eatery for doing a nice job!! See you soon Applebees!

I came in close to opening, so they weren't too busy. I got my food a few minutes after ordering, and it was delicious. Some BWW locations will skimp on the sauce, but not so here. Good food, attentive waitstaff, what more could you need?
Slowest service ever. My friend ordered a beer and asked for a glass of ice. It took them more than 15 mins to get it and the waiter was fondling with my friend's beer as he was handing it to him. Awkward much? very. We also ordered several glasses of water and they kept forgetting to bring it out. Just water, nothing fancy. The wings were also a disappointment. My party ordered a total of 96 wet-blazin traditional wings (wasn't wet enough when arrived), 8 spicy garlic boneless (also very dry), and several other ones, and we were not impressed. Maybe its just this location because we like our BWW at home just fine.
Extremely slow service in an empty resturant. Ordered via their website to pick up lunch, got there 10 minutes after it was supposed to be ready and they had not even started making my order. Looked around the resturant and they had no customers at all. While I was there some one called in, put in an order and came and picked it up before I had my food and they said the reason was the line cooks hadn't even received my order to make it yet, after I was there for 15 minutes. No apology for their obvious failure, no urgency to correct their mistake. Normally I don't like to make negative posts but this is the 3rd time this month I've had bad service at this location.

Texas Roadhouse

Reviews:
Texas Roadhouse was the best dining experience I have had in Decatur, IL. Busy, but with seats uncharacteristically available, the atmosphere was, lit without being too lit to enjoy a Bud Light on tap and homemade rolls (for free. Like, they just give them to you). The elderly man next to me was jovial as he asked to be cut off at 6:45 pm. Later, a waitress announced that a man was celebrating his 40th birthday and the restaurant obliged to scream "Yeehaw" in unison at the waitress's behest. 4 stars because my ribeye was kinda gristly.
The food is enjoyable for the most part and the prices are really good, but the atmosphere makes me hate coming here. The place is always so packed and cluttered, you can't even walk to the bathroom without bumping into people. Other places in Decatur get just as busy and I never have this same problem at those restaurants, so I think it's just a faulty layout Roadhouse has. It's like they try to pack in as many people as they can in the smallest area possible. It doesn't help matters that the servers are required to do line-dances in the aisle at least once an hour, making an already cluttered restaurant even more cluttered. Sound-wise, the place gets very loud. They blare really bad mainstream country music over the stereo, which is fine if you enjoy that sort of thing, but it can be difficult to hear what other people are saying. If you're looking for a good place to take a date, this would probably be the last place I recommend. Based on the food alone, I'd give this 4 stars. The free rolls they give are excellent and the decent-size steak portions are very tender. This won't be the best steak you've ever eaten or anything like that, but for a $9 price tag, it's easily affordable and much better than the steak at other Decatur restaurants like O'Charlie's or Ruby Tuesdays. If you live in the area and want a good steak, Texas Roadhouse comes highly recommended, but my only suggestion is that you get take-out instead of eating it there.
very disappointed. After waiting 1 hour (for a 30-45 min wait time) we were seated. drink order and appetizer order went in and came right away. the food order took another 1 hour and 2 of the 5 meals were cold and dry............ I was only visiting this area but I will never go back if I stumble through again............... PRO: staff was friendly

Service was decent and waitress brought out correct orders. The problem was that my salad was majorly over dressed. Another problem was the shrimp nachos my family purchased for an appetizer had barely any toppings on it and the dish was mostly just brittle chips. Overall my meal was bad and very overpriced.
good dinner, good price, four baskets of crab rolls and four refills on drink. Tristen was a server and paid close attention to our table.
Pretty freaking tasty. I love seafood and the cheesy biscuits. The atmosphere is pretty kitchy but still good food. Also its always packed but the wait staff remains very attentive.
