The new Texas Roadhouse location has just opened in Lubbock and I can't wait to swing by and get a rib-eye and roll or two... or three. When we first told you that Texas Roadhouse was moving, we told you that it would be bigger and better, and it is. In fact, according to KAMC, the new Texas Roadhouse location in Lubbock is the world's largest location.

And I bet there will still be a wait on Saturday night. Why? Because we love our steaks in Lubbock.

But something else stood out to me in the report by KAMC. It's possible that there will be additional locations coming to Lubbock in the future.

Smith said the plan is to eventually have more locations, but they want to make sure this location will operate better at a higher level.

“As a native Lubbock, I can say that I built the biggest damn Texas Roadhouse in the world,” Smith said.

Can Lubbock handle at least two Texas Roadhouse locations? The answer, at least in my opinion is absolutely it can.

The newer, bigger, Texas Roadhouse is going to be packed this weekend and every weekend moving forward. If I had to guess, options for a second location would include somewhere along Milwaukee Avenue, around 114th and Slide, or along the future Loop 88. The Plaza is attempting a second location in Lubbock and that location is at 114th and Slide Road in South Lubbock. To me, a move south makes sense.

But of course that is looking into the future. Right now fans of Texas Roadhouse will just have to enjoy the place and the extra elbow room.
