Fodor's Review

Don't let the word "roadhouse" fool you—upscale food is served in a quirky, hip Texas setting at Tillman's. Contemporary music plays (sometimes too loudly) while old black-and-white movies are projected on a wall near the bar. Fussy chandeliers hang over sturdy, wood tables; look closely at the animal trophies—they're actually carved from wood. Meals begin with hot roasted peanuts and popcorn coated in truffle oil and black pepper. Be sure to try the moist cornbread, heavy with cheese, peppers, and corn; the thick, gravity-defying burger; and the chocolate birthday cake (even if it's not your special day).

Tillman's Roadhouse Review

The bartender was very rude, not just to me, but to other guests. He used profanity, and would not get my food I requested. He said he was the manager, and he was not. VERY awful experience, and sadly, it was Mother's Day. I usually love this place, but never again will I dine here.
