Lufkin’s new Texas Roadhouse, at 4500 S. Medford Drive, opens Monday, July 26. Before the first guest walks in the door, the restaurant will roll out the red, white and blue carpet for several local organizations. Next week, as the restaurant trains new cooks, meat cutters and other kitchen members, guests at The Family Crisis Center of East Texas, The Salvation Army, Godtell Ministries and local first responders will be first to try the restaurant’s legendary steaks, fall-off-the-bone ribs and made-from-scratch sides.
Prior to opening, the restaurant will host invitation-only pre-opening events and raise money for Riley’s Cause and Family Legacy. The fundraisers are not open to the public, but media is welcome.
“Being a strong community partner is part of our mission,” says Managing Partner Ty Ngov. “Both of these organizations serve as a lifeline for families across this region. We’ll do whatever we can to support these amazing charities to provide basic needs and support to those who need help.”
Texas Roadhouse is always looking for legendary team members. Those interested in employment are encouraged to apply online at apply.texasroadhouse.com
