This Couple Has Eaten at the Same Texas Roadhouse Six Days a Week for 15 Years
The Vietnam veteran and his wife can't get enough of the steakhouse.
And you thought your devotion to your local Cracker Barrel or Waffle House is impressive? Meet Diana and Ron Watson, a couple who have been eating at the same Texas Roadhouse in Wichita, Kansas six days a week since 2004. The chain, headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky is a nationwide eatery featuring steak and comfort food in a Western-inspired ambience.
After 15 years of dining under the neon lights, the duo knows what they like. As The Wichita Eagle reported Diana's go-to is the chopped steak with sautéed onions and mushrooms and a baked potato, no salt. Ron goes for the barbecue chicken breast or the pork chop, paired with mashed potatoes and brown gravy. They both order salads; a house salad — hold the tomatoes —and Ranch dressing for her, and an iceberg lettuce salad with Italian dressing for him.
"We don't get bored with it. And you can get everything off the menu. They'll fix it the way you want to. You don't have worry about something," says Diana in a video interview with The Wichita Eagle. "We love this place. We get good service, good food, good price, you can't beat it," Ron adds. Watch the full clip below.
A Vietnam veteran, Ron still suffers from PTSD and the couple's booth, 412, provides him with a sense of safety since he can see the door and people entering and exiting. We sure hope this sweet couple gets to enjoy this special tradition for many more years to come.
