Free lunches at Texas Roadhouse to benefit Special Olympics Illinois

SYCAMORE – Texas Roadhouse restaurants around the state, including the Sycamore location, will be offering a free lunch to collect donations for Special Olympics Illinois.

Texas Roadhouse, 1950 DeKalb Ave., will offer free lunches from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday. Local law enforcement agencies partner with the restaurants to collect the donations, according to a news release.

The free lunch includes a pulled pork sandwich, corn, fresh baked bread with honey-cinnamon butter and a nonalcoholic beverage.

This will be the fundraiser’s seventh year. Last year’s events raised almost $80,000 for the organization, according to the release.

Texas Roadhouse restaurants in Crystal Lake, Joliet, Bradley, Quincy and Countryside will have the same free lunch hours Friday, while restaurants in Springfield, Champaign, Forsyth, Shiloh and Edwardsville will have free lunch from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday.
