Giving Back TO EVERY COMMUNITY We serve

Why being part of it all matters

We know that our restaurants have a substantial economic impact in every community we operate in. We offer time, support, and fundraising opportunities for many local charities to give back. In addition, we provide corporate support to select organizations across the country.

Providing jobs, raising funds, making a difference

Each Texas Roadhouse restaurant supports economic growth in its community with an average of $1.2 million in annual revenue and 200 jobs.

Giving meals, too. Every little bit helps

Our restaurants average four fundraisers a month, raising thousands of dollars for local non-profits, causes, and schools. In addition to funds, millions of meals are donated to people in Texas Roadhouse communities.


In 2016, more than $2 Million were raised and
donated to local non-profits, schools, and
organizations in the communities we serve.

We Honor Heroes


Serving those who serve our country

To our nation’s veterans, thank you. Throughout the year, we support our nation’s veterans and service members at both the local and national level. Every day, veterans and active military men and women will find reserved parking at our restaurants. And every Veteran’s Day, we’re honored to offer free meals to veterans and active military men and women.

We Love Veterans

In 2017, over 250,000
(free) meals were
enjoyed by veterans.

Building more than homes
for our troops

We’ve been a national and influential partner with Homes For Our Troops (HFOT) for more than 14 years, completing over 220 mortgage-free, custom-built homes for the most severely injured post-9/11 veterans. From motorcycle rides in 11 states to donating a portion of yearly gift card sales, from fundraising events to providing food to hundreds of volunteers at almost every new project Key Ceremony and Volunteer Day, we’re honored to support this organization. And that support comes from the top: Our founder and CEO, Kent Taylor, also serves on the Board of HFOT.

The Armadillo Classic Golf Scramble has donated $1.8 million to Special Olympics of Kentucky since 2000; and Tip-A-Cop Fundraisers have donated almost $900,000 to Special Olympics of Texas over the past 10 years.

Service with a heart


Don’t just take our word for it

THORNTON, CO: The table behind us had several small children with them. As they were leaving, one of the kids bumped his mouth and started to cry. Cindi happened to be close when this happened and it was apparent that the parents were overwhelmed, as we all get. Cindi (with no hesitation) walked over and asked if she could pick up the sad toddler. The parents thankfully said, “Go for it.” She then showed him decorations around the restaurant while they finished up at their table. Somehow she managed to do this without neglecting any of her other tables!” – Dan B.

LOGAN, UT: “The server Brett took care of the table with six adults and four children with a great attitude. He was over-the-top careful and gracious with one of the kids who has a severe food allergy. The entire team who served us were polite and seemed to enjoy their job. It is amazing what happens when someone treats their job as something they want to do as opposed to what they have to do.” – Glenn B.
