Now before you dismiss this as your average paid review, don’t. It’s not. Why am I endorsing this restaurant then? We have a son who LOVES loud music. He likes the TV loud, music loud, and his games loud. Texas Roadhouse has fairly loud music. Not so loud you can’t converse, but loud enough that he obviously gets good auditory sensory input because we’ve eaten there twice now in the last few months, and they were two of the most peaceful meals we’ve eaten out as a family in ages. There was no stimming. There was no crawling under the table every 30 seconds for a dropped (on purpose) crayon. There was no whining abut food. Our son especially likes it when they turn the music up just a bit louder and the staff line dance to a song. He totally stopped everything and was riveted. I also love that our location has seated us both times towards the back in the row of seats by the bathrooms. Not only is this out of the way of most other diners, but when you have small kids, being near the bathrooms is actually a nice feature in a restaurant table. The hardest part of our dining experience was leaving. We go early to beat the rush, and by the time we were leaving, the hostess area was full of people waiting for tables. A small price to pay for being able to have a peaceful meal out with the kids.
Amanda Griffiths sometimes feels as though she's running a zoo instead of a home. With two active autistic boys, they often make the noise of six kids. Pepper in some Army life and cyber schooling for spice, and it's organized chaos at best. When visiting, please don't feed the animals. They have food allergies.
