Texas Steakhouse & Saloon is a casual dining chain restaurant owned by CB Steaks, Inc.[1] Tom Moxcey is the president.

History[edit]

The first Texas Steakhouse & Saloon[2] restaurant was opened by Jack Winston[3] in Lynchburg, Virginia in 1989. In 1994, BNE formed the Texas Steak, Ltd. corporation and through it purchased all rights associated with Texas Steakhouse & Saloon. BNE then partnered with Line Management and began opening Texas Steakhouse & Saloon locations in North Carolina. In 2001, Texas Steakhouse & Saloon came under the sole management of BNE. The company currently operates 22 restaurants,[4] all located in Virginia, West Virginia and North Carolina.[5] The restaurant was sold to CB Steaks, Inc. in August 2012.

When CB Steaks purchased the restaurant, they began releasing limited time offer menu items, and will do so for two years, to give a more holistic sampling of real Texas cuisine.

All 19 restaurants required upgrades to kitchens to prepare for new food items. Along with the expanded menu, changes from store decor to staff uniforms and other upgrades are in the pipeline.
