Great Food, Great Price – HOLY CRAP a 28oz Porterhouse!!! It was HUGE and oh so tasty. Resturaunt was busy which was a good sign but our party of 5 got right in and got seated. Tried the new shrimp appetizer and it was AWESOME! well worth trying it out even if you don't love shrimp. Everyone at the table got "custom" salads with exactly what we wanted in them and the Salads were HUGE! Then the meal came WOW that was a big steak and cooked perfectly. My wife got the Pork tenderloin, she's an Iowa native so it brought her back home. I dont know what everyone else got but I know there was one vegitarian at the table and she was very pleased with her meal. Now for the really good part, they are opening a new place up by my house, WOO HOO. This is gonna be one of my new regular places now that it is closer to home. I would highly recommend this to steak eaters every where.
Wonderfull!!!! – When you walk into this establishment you are treated like family. My husband and I frequent the Texas T-Bone and the management rush over to greet us and even offer us quarters to try to win our girls a stuffed animal from their prize grabber machine. Our food is always cooked to perfection, the peanuts at the table are great, they make mean margharita and the staff truly care about your experience and want you to come back.
Great place for a "steak done right" – This was my second experience at the T-Bone. my first was years ago and I had moved to Greeley. I am back in town and wanted a good steak and I did not want to wait in line for 1 hour in order to get a good steak. I went to this place because its close enough to my house and I have had a good experience there. I am happy to report that they still really know how to cook a steak my style. I had a HUGE porterhouse with some steamed veggies a salad and a beer. Everything was cooked to perfection. when the waitress brought my meal to the table it really made me say wow. My wife had some sort of chicken plate, with a baked potato and a ceasar salad, it looked really good, I cant remember the name of the plate but I would definitely get it if I happened to be in the mood for chicken.
all in all, this place is what I remembered from before I left and I enjoyed throwing my peanut husks on the floor, its not too up tight.
Can't determine between med-rare, rare and well done; poor awareness of time – Having waited on tables and eaten at various restaurants at several different times of day, we are quite aware of the busy hours and expect at moments to not be the center of attention. We also understand that there are times when an order is mixed up or does not quite measure up to one's expectations. However, when these and other errors are made all in one visit, it requires criticism.
To begin with, the drink order started off wrong, when one water was replaced by a lemonade. When one is thirsty and only wants water, anything else will not quench. The appetizer was appropriately sized and brought no complaints. The bread was only offered at the beginning, and only one roll per person was given, and they weren't that big.
Rarely have we ever finished our appetizer and salads before our meal has been served. However, tonight, we even had time for our younger children to use the facilities and return. Several minutes after returning to the table, the waitress asked if we needed more lemonade. Instead, she should have observed that we were finished with our appetizers and did not have our meal and should have then offered an explanation. After we asked about the food, it was observed that she was discussing this with the kitchen staff.
Then, when we were served, all our meat was undercooked. The only benefit to this is that when we reheat it, it will be where it needs to be.
Now, to top off our experience, while we were at the restaurant, there was a clown. This clown could have been a bonus for our children, however, he bypassed our table and seem to be able to make balloon sculptures for every table around us, including some with no children. To add insult to injury, we were offered a balloon flower as we left the restaurant.
In conclusion, had we at least been offered some apology to amend our bad experience, we may have chosen not to give a bad rating.
