JONESBORO -- Jonesboro's Texas Roadhouse location opens for business Monday.

Before the first guest walks in the door, the restaurant hosted an invitation-only fundraiser for CASA (Court-Appointed Special Advocates).

"Being a strong community partner is part of our mission," says Managing Partner Eric Moore. "CASA's mission is to help local children, in their greatest time of need. We're thrilled to partner with this amazing organization and can't imagine a more meaningful way to celebrate our opening."

The new restaurant brings 210 new jobs to this community, according to a news release issued by the company.

The public is invited to attend the Texas Roadhouse ribbon-cutting ceremony at 3 p.m. Monday at the new restaurant, 1813 S. Caraway Road.
