Kent Taylor, Chief Executive Officer of Texas Roadhouse, Inc., commented, "Our operating momentum continued during the first quarter with double-digit revenue and diluted earnings per share growth. Additionally, we are encouraged by positive comparable restaurant sales and traffic growth in the first quarter, which continued through the first four weeks of our second quarter. Our success is a direct result of our team's ongoing commitment to providing legendary food and service to our guests. Texas Roadhouse remains well-positioned through the combination of our continued focus on operations, new restaurant growth and our commitment to returning capital to shareholders, which we believe will drive shareholder value over the long-term."
