I have had lunch at the Longhorn Tavern Steak House on two occasions over the past three weeks. Each time I visited the food was delicious - I am partial to the hamburger steaks with grilled onions - and the service was friendly and attentive. This is a popular place at lunch time; I ran into four people I knew... More

The Longhorn features the best chicken fried steak in Brazos County, as evidenced by numerous consecutive years of winning "Best in the Brazos" awards. Overall the new location has a pleasant "joint" atmosphere that is non-threatening for families. The menu features home-style cooking entrees. The steaks are thin and not top-shelf steakhouse quality. But the star of the menu is... More

If that is what you are craving, this is the place. The only unfortunate thing is that this location doesn't have the charisma that the original Longhorn tavern on TX and 21 had. There's just nothing like it was.

Food was terrible and overpriced. Waitstaff rude. Stay away. I complained to the waiter and nothing was done , I felt ripped off when we left😞

Longhorn Tavern is, judging by the crowd, a popular downtown Bryan eatery. The restaurant is located in an old soft drink bottling plant, so the décor was interesting. I chose the lunch special, a chicken fried steak, with mashed potatoes, pinto beans and squash. The steak was very tender and was not half the size of the breading, always a... More

This isn't Madden's Gourmet or the Republic. It is good home cooking (mac n cheese needed a little more cheese, but pasta was cooked properly) away from the crowds. We stopped by after the Aggie/Bama football game around 7:30pm and was seated right away. Service was okay - not awesome - but every other restaurant we tried was 1+hr wait.... More

My teen daughter and I were in town to tour A&M. It had been a long hot day, and we were tired and hungry. Somewhere I had heard about this Longhorn Tavern's chicken fried steak, so we thought we'd give it a try. I did order the CFS, and my daughter ordered the 6oz sirloin steak with an add-on of... More

The Longhorn Tavern is known for its chicken fried steak. There are 2 sizes, regular and large. The regular is really a large in most people's mind! I even have to take home at least 1/3 and I love chicken fried steak! If you don't know what chicken fried steak is, think of fried chicken and then batter and fried... More

Of course, their menu is filled with great steak choices. Since I'm a vegetarian, I was hoping for more vegetable sides to choose from to make a meal, but a salad and fries was about all I could muster from the menu.
