Texas Roadhouse really sounds like it’s more of a beer kind of place, but they have done a great job with their margaritas and seem to be getting better. I have reviewed a couple of locations and drinks before and they all did well. My latest foray into their margarita selections took place at the Texas Roadhouse location in Tinley Park, IL during a recent business trip.
around, they have renamed their Original Margarita as the Legendary Margarita –
a bold step I might add, but not out-of-line as it turns out. The basic recipe of the Legendary Margarita
as described by the Texas Roadhouse menu looks like this:
Margaritas have three tequilas and are specially blended with our signature
sweet and sour, orange juice and agave nectar.
frozen or rocks its a pretty good starting point, pretty much a 3 Limer in the
grand scheme of things. But now they
have stepped it up by offering some options for enhancement, served via test
tube and referred to as “Kickers”.
occasion I chose the 1800 Kicker which features: 1800 Reposado Tequila & di
Amore Quattro Orange.
ADDITION! It definitely took the flavor
up a notch, yet maintained an excellent balance between all the flavors. Worth the extra couple of bucks.
I give the
Legendary Margarita With The 1800 Kicker a 4
shout-out to the Staff at the Tinley Park location. Bobbi-Jo was our bartender and Billie-Jo was
our waitress – great team! And then we
got to meet Fed the Manager – what an entertaining guy and excellent asset to
the restaurant. Someone at our table had
a minor issue with his food, and Fed responded quickly and turned the whole
occasion into a fun experience.
