Texas Roadhouse is not giving out free steak dinner vouchers, as fake Facebook page claims

If Your Time is short

  • Texas Roadhouse is not giving out free vouchers for a free steak dinner for four. 

  • The post is from an unverified account on Facebook masquerading as the Texas Roadhouse account.

A Facebook post announcing that everyone who likes and comments on it will get a free steak dinner for four at a Texas Roadhouse restaurant is simply too good to be true. 

The post claims to be from Texas Roadhouse CEO Gerald L. Morgan, and says by Jan. 30 everyone who shares and comments on the post will receive a voucher. 

"Each voucher can be used at any Texas Roadhouse to get a steak dinner for four with drinks included," said the Jan. 25 post from an unverified Facebook account. 

The post was flagged as part of Facebook’s efforts to combat false news and misinformation on its News Feed. (Read more about our partnership with Facebook.)

A spokesperson told PolitiFact in an email that they are not offering these meal vouchers and that the post from the unverified account is a scam.

It’s not the first time a scam like this one has been shared on Facebook.

In September, the verified Texas Roadhouse Facebook account posted a message that a similar post about meal vouchers was a scam and that whoever was behind it was attempting to gain access to Facebook users’ personal information. The restaurant said it reported that post and encouraged anyone who saw it not to engage with it.

We rate this claim False.
