Augusta’s newest steakhouse is opening in late October.
Texas Roadhouse will open for dinner on Oct. 21 at 107 Sherwood Drive, near the Washington Road intersection. The 7,100-square-foot chain restaurant has been under construction since May.
About 200 employees will be employed at the restaurant, which is the 11th to locate in Georgia. The company had expressed interest in bringing a restaurant to Augusta for more than a year and chose the two-acre lot next to Country Inn & Suites for its high visibility and big box neighbors, according to Texas Roadhouse spokesperson Travis Doster.
The restaurant can accommodate more than 250 diners.
Texas Roadhouse first opened in 1993 in Indiana and now has more than 300 location scattered across the country. The closest restaurants to Augusta are in Columbia.
