What it means

Texas Roadhouse is planning on coming to Toms River. The address in the public notice shows the location as being in the Ocean County Mall shopping complex. It would be an ideal spot for the restaurant. Currently, the closest Texas Roadhouse to Toms River is on Route 9 in Howell Township.

Texas Roadhouse is a much anticipated and requested addition by residents on social media. It would be the first location in Ocean County. Aside from Howell, the chain operates in Hamilton, Holmdel, Old Bridge, and Egg Harbor. There is also a Texas Road House just across the Delaware River in Bensalem, Pennsylvania.

The company has not yet publicly confirmed this addition to its restaurant chain.
