Everything’s bigger in Texas, so supersize portions reign at this rowdy chain. The bars might be packed with margarita drinkers, but the colorful dining rooms—and the shredded-cheese-laden fare—are as kid-friendly as it gets; little ones even eat free on Tuesday nights off a special menu.

What to get: Chili con queso punched up with dark beer; dry-rubbed chicken wings; generously topped Longhorn nachos; fajitas with shrimp or skirt steak; the Cadillac Margarita, a smooth version of the house cocktail.
