LongHorn Steakhouse Restaurant Review

: Founded in Atlanta, LongHorn Steakhouse restaurants rely on kitschy, rustic, Texas-style imagery for d├ęcor, although specifics vary from location to location. LongHorn cuts its steaks on-site, and that is the attraction for fans of this chain. While steak and potatoes are the stars, the Texas Tonion is popular, too: batter-dipped and fried, then served with a red sauce. Portions are generous, and the menu variety means there is a reasonably priced meal for everyone. Steak sauce finished at the table is overly sweet, although the sliced mushrooms and onions are a nice addition. The wine list is a standardized set of nationally recognized brands; none is exciting but none is offensive either. Consider a brew with your steak. For dessert, try the standout Key lime pie.
