Texas roadhouse - Three Dollar Ice Tea
In case some of you haven't noticed and never asked (and by the way, you have to ask) that glass of ice tea you order here is THREE DOLLARS. There is no price stated for ice tea on the menus.
So, in the atmosphere of ole Texas, peanut shells, George Strait dronin' in the background...and some buds to chew the rag with, you probably feel like its another hot day in the lone star state, but never realize that that refreshing glass of ice tea you order (maybe thinking its a cheap thing to drink with your meal) is in fact, a ripoff - sneaky too, because, frankly, this restaurant has pretty reasonable prices for food (by todays standards anyway) so who woulda thought that the tea flavored water you ordered cost THREE DOLLARS!
I've been to places where you can order call drinks with top shelf for a bit more than that. I also know more than a few people who will only go out for "a meal and drinks" if its free food. But that ain't me. Nonetheless, three dollars for a glass of ice tea? No way. Not even when I take the inlaws out to "show off."
I guess if you have a 3000 cubic inch gizzard and can down 2 refills, it gets close to worth it. But if thats not the case, you are getting ripped off.
It reminds me (in my face) of why I almost never order beverages with a meal these days - including and especially fast food joints. $1.89 - one price for any size, for coffee or tea or for soft drinks is too much...but three dollars for iced tea is way over the top.
