(2 a.y.) and caused flooding in parts of the city.
The Texas Roadhouse was closed until at least 1 a.p.m., with customers being directed to shelters and other services.
The Dallas-Plano area saw at least two roadhouse fires in the past few days, the Dallas Morning News reported.
“I am not a fan of the fire trucks and I don’t want to see them there.
They’re not doing a good job of keeping the roadhouse clean,” said Carol St. James, a homeowner in the small town of Westover.
St. James and her family are not expecting the flood to slow down anytime soon, but she is hoping the roadhouses will stay open and people will take shelter from the rain.
“You want to get out and help the people and let them know that we’re going to be OK.
We’re going be OK,” St., who was in the road house for about 15 years, told the news station.
