Season 2 Episode 4

Texas Roadhouse feat. Michael Moore

In this episode of Fine Dining: The Search for the Most Mediocre Restaurant in America:

Part 1: Michael is joined by friend and powerhouse of a man, Michael Moore (no relation to the filmmaker/documentarian of the same name) to dine at Texas Roadhouse

○ The restaurant started as a spot in a mall in Indiana, so it was neither a roadhouse nor Texan, but that didn't stop owner W. Kent Taylor from building an empire after giving up on opening a Colorado-themed restaurant

○ Learn all about the history of the chain dubbed the "Loudest Restaurant in America" in this week's Eat Deets

○ Harrison Augustine 💸 Arrylius XIV has had it with the mistreatment of corporations: they're people too, dammit!

○ Hear Michael & Michael's first impressions of the place, from the wall of veterans to the lack of peanuts on the floor

○ Michael Moore compiles a few very catfish-centric Yelp reviews about this Texas Roadhouse in the middle of nowhere, almost halfway between Los Angeles and Las Vegas

○ New Part 1 Outro Song!!

Part 2: We're back with friend and magician Michael Moore to talk about the atmosphere, service, and food at Texas Roadhouse

○ Willie's Corner, the suspicious absence of floor peanuts, hoedowns, and taxidermy galore

○ Some concerning verbiage from the service team has the Michaels speculating the presence of an otherworldly, Lovecraftian being skulking about the area in this week's What's Going On Over There?

○ A three-part audiodrama addressing said monster

Maxwell gives his thoughts on the Texas Roadhouse Kids Menu in the return of Munchkin Menu Musings!

○ Are the rolls at Texas Roadhouse the new best restaurant table bread?

○ Petunia leaves JUB a voicemail
