Very good brisket sandwich

It has been many years since my last visit to Longhorn. I stopped in for lunch and had their lunch special. The service was excellent. The brisket was very tender and well flavored. I will make sure I stop in a little more frequent than once in every ten years.

Best BBQ ever I had. Brisket was soft enough to cut with a fork. Gravy and BBQ sauce was awesome including garlic mash potato. I so glade these Texas people open one here, I was so lucky it was next door where I stay.

We were there for happy hour. We should have known it would be expensive. There were no prices on happy hour items. The beer was $4.50 during happy hour. We pay less than that at other places not during happy hour. When I asked waitress what regular price of beer was she said,

Had a great dinner here. Brisket was very good. We had dinner around 7:00 pm so not too busy. Food came out quickly. Waitstaff was attentive and service was excellent.

It has a very "Country" atmosphere, which is good for a BBQ place and the food is excellent. The sauce is the best I have had. Definitely worth trying.

We go here a few times a year. The BBQ is one of the better ones around. Unlike other BBQ restaurants that mix dark and white chicken meat, Longhorn has all white in their pulled chicken. I would have given 4 stars except Longhorns sweet tea is lacking....ummmmm....sweet. Not sure why they call it sweet tea but the tea I... More

Everything was great, we all had something different and we sampled everything! The food was hot and fresh, the service was very friendly and attentive. Can't wait to go back, and we... More

It took them too long to greet me when I arrived. They overcooked my steak and took a long time getting it resolved. Perhaps they were understaffed . The new steak came out and it was still very bland. Far too average to write a positive review.

The interior was clean, and will kept. The aroma of a wood fired grill drifted through the room. The service was good. The food? well not so much. I ordered the baby back ribs, they arrived to quickly, as if they were sitting on the shelve waiting for me. The ribs were cold and dry, with the only flavor coming... More

Must of been what the Flintstones had in mind. Ribs are meaty but rather bland for being smoked. None of the sides are exceptional. Nice barn like vibe and plenty of music on the weekends. All in all not a bad place, but not a great place either. Great places are a short drive away.
