We took a quick road trip to Utah with two goals in mind: dinner at Texas Roadhouse and Fall-Off-The-Bone Ribs!

Sometimes, as a food blogger, you get invited to various restaurants to come try out their menu. It’s a fun perk…and if you ask my husband, he’ll tell you it’s the most amazing perk ever. And, with living in a city like Las Vegas, this opportunity presents itself quite often.
Recently, I received another invitation: come to Texas Roadhouse and try their Fall-Off-The-Bone Ribs during their Blue Ribbon Rib Fest. Our family has been a fan of Texas Roadhouse since we first tried them in Kingsport, TN, several years ago, so how could I say no?
Well, I couldn’t…except for one small issue: we don’t have Texas Roadhouse in Vegas.
After a quick Texas Roadhouse location search, I realized that we had a Texas Roadhouse about 100 miles from Las Vegas in St. George, UT. We love to take short road trips, so this was all the information I needed to plan a quick trip for Texas Roadhouse and their Fall-Off-The-Bone Ribs, rolls, and free peanuts!
The drive to St. George, UT from Las Vegas is beautiful. You actually drive through a mountain “gorge” in Arizona, so the trip takes you end up traveling in three states: Nevada, Arizona, and Utah. We love the drive so it’s not crazy to us to make the trek with single restaurant in mind.
In Texas Roadhouse’s signature style, their amazing rolls were brought to our table as we were seated. If you’ve never had Texas Roadhouse rolls with their cinnamon butter, you’re missing out.
One of David’s favorite parts of eating at Texas Roadhouse has always been the complimentary peanuts. Those free peanuts are the way to that man’s heart! Not only do they have a bucket of them on the table, but if you have to wait for a table, you can much on the while you are waiting too.
Sometimes we get an appetizer when we go out for dinner. We almost never get more than one appetizer, but when I saw how reasonably priced their appetizers were, we actually decided to get two. We ordered the Onion Blossom and their Fried Pickles.
Both are delicious, but the Onion Blossom is probably the top favorite for everyone in my family.
But, while peanuts and rolls are great, it wasn’t our main reason for driving to Utah for Texas Roadhouse. Our focus was all the other main courses and David’s favorite: the Texas Roadhouse Fall-Off-The-Bone Ribs!
What makes Texas Roadhouse Fall-Off-The-Bone Ribs so great is how they are prepared. They get 3-days of preparation, with a unique blend of seasonings and a signature BBQ sauce. You can order them in a half or full slab. David ordered the full slab, of course.
He loves the the signature sauce they use. And they are true to their name too: they literally fall of the bone. I even got him to share one with me. See, I like ribs, but they HAVE to be tender. They were so good and the tenderness was spot on.
The Texas Roadhouse Fall-Off-The-Bones Ribs are also served with two side dishes. David went for the loaded baked potato and a side salad.
And see those little wet towelettes? They don’t give you those for nothing – with all that sauce, you’re going to need them.
If you haven’t tried the ribs at Texas Roadhouse, you’re going to want to give these a try on your next visit. Of course, you might not have to drive 100 miles to get to your local Texas Roadhouse, but if you did – it would be well worth it.
