SAN ANTONIO – Texas Roadhouse locations in San Antonio and across Texas are selling ready-to-grill steaks directly to the public due to grocery store shortages, according to the restaurant chain.

Texas Roadhouse is offering a variety of steaks, including ribeye, strips, sirloin and filet, restaurant officials said. Guests are encouraged to call the restaurant to place an order.

"The decision to sell steaks was based on demand from guests," Texas Roadhouse vice president of communications Travis Doster said in a statement. "Restaurants are a vital part of our nation's food supply, and we're stepping in where we can to help fill the gaps."

The orders can be placed online through the website or app, or by phone.

COVID-19, the respiratory disease caused by the new virus, stands for coronavirus disease 2019. The disease first appeared in late 2019 in Wuhan, China, but spread around the world in early 2020, causing the World Health Organization to declare a pandemic in March.
