Fun but stressful

Indeed Featured review

Loved working at Texas Roadhouse— felt like a family. Fun environment with line dancing and pretty straight forward expectations for everyone as far as company policies.


Lots of work if you want it


Long days, management is hit or miss

Fun work place

Busy location, fun environment. Family like staff. Opportunity to grow quickly. Longer training process and test than most restaurants but they give you all the answers during training

Management issues

The job itself isn’t hard and pretty enjoyable but here at the Kokomo indiana roadhouse management doesn’t respect workers at all they also don’t try to get rid of the roach problem they have

great place to work, management is respectul

This TXRH is a great place to work. A highly flexible job with managers who respect the fact that you are a person with other responsibilities (school, second job, children, etc.) As long as you work hard and show you care you will succeed here and it is constantly busy so there is money to be made.

While working here I was able to develop skills that will carry on with me through life. The environment is good and fast paced, and it helped me support myself through college. Forever grateful for my experience working at Texas Roadhouse & the friends I’ve made!

Avoid at all costs.

It is a horrid place to work. Staff are rude, and management is so much worse. Do NOT work here. You have no breaks as well so the overall environment is so toxic it is visceral to work. Sanitation is also a major issue and the food served there honestly wouldn't even suitable for a dog to eat.

Great coworkers, not so great management.

Texas Roadhouse picks and chooses who to punish about what. They have favorites. Managers can never be found when they're needed. Certain employees are allowed to run rampant doing whatever they like.

Overworked Underpaid

All restaurant jobs have their issues, but the Texas Roadhouse culture is just not great. Maybe it is just the location I worked at, but managers treat you like you are trash. They pretend they are flexible with scheduling, but they will consistently schedule you when you requested off or said you can't work those days. you're lucky if you get a break during a double.

Fun place to work

Being a server is a whole lot of fun and a great way to make money quick. Highly recommend it if it’s your first job! You can basically work when you want or if you don’t want to at all.

Bad management

The money you make serving here is good but the management is not. They will over schedule you and are unprofessional. They will yell at you in the kitchen in front of other staff and on the floor in front of customers. If you make a mistake they will punish you by not scheduling you or reducing the number of tables you can have. If you report being mistreated they will retaliate by firing you. It’s not worth the money.

Poor training

I didn’t enjoy my time there I wasn’t trained properly I had no idea what I was doing half the time they paired me with someone that didn’t speak English it was a communication barrier 0 out of five stars wouldn’t recommend

The managers were extremely rude and degrading constantly to all employees. If you enjoy not getting yelled at and put down at every moment by your bosses, don't work here.

Overall horrible

Management was very poor on overall performance. Tips were not great customers were more surprisingly rude (all servers) Kitchen is just an entire mess

Fast pace and friendly

Overall, working here was really chill if you’re used to a fast pace and talking to people is a must. The “guests” always came first and sometimes people can get a little feisty but managers would have your backs. Seniority is definitely at effect in up training but if you talked with the managers frequently about your situation then it could help with up training. Takes awhile to get up trained from a host and the pay isn’t the best. The majority of your pay comes from the tip share, so if you work busy nights then you’ll receive a decent check. Management is very understanding and the people you work with are friendly so its a nice first job.

Racist, Horrible management, Favorites

Do not work here if you are POC, The Managers here play favorites and only care about they workers who been there the longest, they do not care about new worker at all and will fire you over anything.

Great coworkers not the best mangers

Mangers lack communication they can often times be on two totally different pages however the GM is amazing I loved my coworkers it’s a classic mix where you have some giving all and some giving the bare minium
