East-side Texas Roadhouse set to open

The new east-side Texas Roadhouse opens at 3 p.m. on Monday. Like its sister restaurant on West Kellogg, it’ll feature some Wichita scenes on murals throughout the restaurant, which is opening in front of Academy Sports & Outdoors on Greenwich just south of K-96.

Managing partner Mike Parrotino chose each of the murals, most of which also feature the Louisville chain’s mascot, Andy the Armadillo.

For instance, one mural features Andy flying upside down over the city, with Century II prominently featured in the foreground, as he scouted a second Texas Roadhouse site for Wichita.

The Keeper of the Plains, the Shockers – represented by an actual shock of wheat instead of Wichita State University’s mascot – and, of course, the Wichita flag also are represented among other things.

Like the Texas Roadhouse on West Kellogg, the new one will be open from 3 to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 3 to 11 p.m. Friday, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday.
