It sounds like the Texas Roadhouse here. DH calls it the Texas Outhouse.

Of course anyone who even contemplates Cracker Barrel (or White Trash Barrel) needs to have their culinary tastes examined. Same for Denny’s and Texas Roadhouse (or Texas Outhouse, as my kids call it).

Lots of people, I’d think, but we’ll be at the Texas Outhouse (okay, okay, it’s the Roadhouse) for sort of a public rehearsal in case anyone ever pays us to play again.

ter the “show” and being thankful we were in the middle of the three tiered bleachers (we were kept reasonably warm by bodies that surrounded us) we went to “The Texas Outhouse”. When that establishment first came to town I couldn’t remember the correct name, “Texas.........."HUMMM, the name is gone again. You probably know what it is. (While proof reading this I remembered, “Texas Roadhouse")
