JONESBORO, Ark. – Caraway Road continues to come to life once again with the expected opening next month of a restaurant that was given final local approval for their liquor permit last night.

Tuesday night, the Jonesboro City Council approved an application by Texas Roadhouse of Jonesboro, 1813 S. Caraway Road, for a private club permit. It was the final of three readings for the forthcoming chain restaurant. The location must be approved by the Arkansas Alcoholic Beverage Control Division before it may serve drinks. It would be unexpected if not approved.

On Monday, Texas Roadhouse posted to Facebook that they were hiring Jonesboro workers. Their website, which includes their menu if you’re hungry, says the location will open in September.

The Jonesboro location also has posted plans to have a “local heroes wall” for area veterans or armed services members, past or present. If you’d like to get a loved on displayed, the email address is txrhJonesboroVetWall@gmail.com.

The corporate website describes the company as follows:

It all began on February 17, 1993, when Kent Taylor opened the first Texas Roadhouse in Clarksville, Indiana. Kent’s goal was to own not just a family restaurant and not just a steak restaurant, but a place where everyone, of all ages, could come and have a great meal and great fun for a great price.

We like to brag about our Hand-Cut Steaks, Fall-Off-The-Bone Ribs, Made-From-Scratch Sides, and Fresh-Baked Bread. Everything we do goes into making our hearty meals stand out. We handcraft almost everything we serve. We provide larger portions so you get more food for your dollar. And if you want an Ice Cold Beer or Legendary Margarita to wash it all down — well, we have those, too.

Our food’s not the only thing that’s Legendary at the Roadhouse — our fun is too! From our line dancers to our jukebox to our friendly servers, you’ll enjoy every second you spend in a Texas Roadhouse.

At Texas Roadhouse our team has an incredible sense of pride in everything we do. Our passion ensures you have a Legendary Experience every time. Because of our passion for our guests and our communities, our team members are involved outside the restaurants in their local communities as a way to give back.
