All-American Summer Eats

Summer 2015

Nothing says summer like some good old fashioned barbeque. Come on over, grab a seat and try some of these all American summer eats!

Guests who order the FLATBED BUFFET at American Q will enjoy an endless parade of hand-carved meats presented tableside by Cowboy Carvers. Standouts from the savory selections include a Texas Bark Brisket of Beef which Tastes of Orlando claims is “in the running for the best beef brisket in Central Florida”, as well as a melt-in-your-mouth Picanha of Beef. This cut from the sirloin is the most prized cut of beef in Brazil. At American Q it’s seasoned with their house rub–which puts a slight cure on the meat–and then cooked to perfection on an oak grill rotisserie. Other tableside carvings include Confit of smoked turkey leg, bacon wrapped boneless chicken thighs, an everchanging selection of daily housemade sausages, smoked pork shoulder with spiced onions, cold smoked and grilled turkey thigh with turkey chorizo stuffing, Carolina-style flank steak and vegetable brochettes.

Texas Roadhouse features award-winning fall-off-the-bone ribs slathered with zesty BBQ sauce that hit the spot when you’re in the mood for summertime comfort foods. These ribs are slow-cooked for three days so they literally slide right off the bone.

If you’re in the mood for a hand-cut succulent steak, try their 16 oz sirloin, a favorite on the menu! Walk in and pick your own steaks right from the meat-case. It’s guaranteed fresh because every Texas Roadhouse steak is hand-cut by top ten meat-cutter, Javier Valdes right in the restaurant. Of course, a summertime meal wouldn’t be complete without an ice-cold beer or one of their 15 varieties of legendary margaritas!
