For the last couple of years, there's been a whole lot of talk around Gallatin County about a very popular chain restaurant that is coming to the area.

It was announced back in April of 2022 that Texas Roadhouse would be building a restaurant here in Bozeman and originally, was supposed to open back in November of 2022, however, that did not happen. Many fans of the restaurants have wondered, when are they going to actually break ground and start building.

Well, it seems there might be a bit of an update to share.

Oh, and we have to mention those amazing good.

A very reliable source informed me that they've started to move dirt and that folks are here in town to start building the restaurant. In fact, I was told that we could see the restaurant open towards the middle of July, which is only a few months away and would be perfect for the summer tourism season.

I know, I know, that's only a rumor, so that's why I reached out to Texas Roadhouse's corporate office to see what they had to say about the situation. I chatted with the Guest Relations coordinator for the company and they did indeed confirm that the Bozeman Texas Roadhouse location is scheduled to open in mid-July.

Of course, Bozeman is filled with several great restaurants, with many being locally owned. Although, having another choice isn't a bad thing.
