June 12, 2020 (El Cajon) - Texas Roadhouse restaurant in El Cajon is back open after the COVID-19 shutdown and already drawing a wait list. Arrive before five for some great dinner specials. I got a tender BBQ pulled pork dinner with all the fixings for just $10.99, chilling out with an Armadillo Punch.
As an added bonus, enjoy some dancing cowboys and cowgirls -- actually the wait staff, kicking up their heels with some Western-style line dancing. Yeehaw!
The menu also offers steaks, ribs, prime rib, burgers, barbecue chicken, salads and more. Be sure to call ahead to get on the wait list -- on Thursday night, the place was packed as much as social distancing allow. They also offer takeout.
I savored the pulled pork sandwich on the early-bird menu that was not only affordably priced, but also delicious with abundant portions. The Armadillo punch also provided cooling refreshment on a hot day.
