Local residents like their ribs at Texas Roadhouse. The family restaurant opened a few years ago to eager residents excited to visit the acclaimed peanut-shell-tossing establishment with its line-dancing employees. A toss-out bucket for the shells is supplied, along with the bucket holding peanuts, but no one bats an eye if patrons toss a few shells on the floor instead. “It’s the culture that we create,” said franchise owner Randy Blankenchip. “It’s a fun, lively atmosphere.” The Kentucky-based restaurant chain started with a single restaurant in Clarksville, Ind – just outside Louisville – and has grown to include 430 restaurants in nearly every state. The website brags about its hand-cut steaks, fall-off-the-bone ribs and handmade sides and bread.  “Our motto is ‘legendary food and legendary service’ and that’s all-inclusive. That’s our goal every day,” Blankenchip said. “It’s not rocket science, it’s just being real and doing the best we can.”
