“Chicken fried steak”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012 via mobile

My wife loves chicken fried steak so this is our go to place for her CFS fix. It's chain, so the fare is average. Plenty of roasted peanuts to eat as you wait ... And just toss the shells on the floor. You can watch the kitchen staff through the plate glass window as they grill your steak over a wood fire. The food is fine, just not great. There are better places to eat in town, but Logan's parking lot is full each evening, so they must have a following.

“Inferior steaks”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Yesterday, we tried Logan's Roadhouse after a fair period of time, both ordering the 12 oz ribeye. Neither steak was satisfactory, with a slightly off flavor and a texture that suggested the meat had been tenderized, a no-no for a cut like this. Both were very thin, also. An uninspiring experience.

In Athens, your best alternative opportunity for a good regular steak is either Longhorn's or Outback or Rafferty's, although all have increased the prices recently.

Tip #1: at Logan's, you receive a small bucket of salted peanuts in the shell and are expected to toss the opened shells on the floor. When you leave, you each can request a bag of peanuts for take-out at no additional charge.

Tip #2: at this location, there is a side room where they seem to put individuals with small children. Of about 12 tables, 10 had children less than 5 years old. Unfortunately, the child behind me was being held on her parent's shoulder about 12 inches from my ear, while talking incessantly and occasionally letting out piercing yells. You may wish to request a table away from the "kiddie" section if you visit this location.

“Food OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

Logan's had OK food....burger/steak/chicken kind of fare...but the bathrooms have been dirty on a couple of our visits, and when we saw a low food service rating on top of that, we've kind of avoided the place ever since.

“Okay, Your Sliders Are Fantastic!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2012

I'm giving this a 4 star because I don't think the atmosphere, or the service, are comparable in the dining area to the bar. I have had pretty bad service in the dining area, especially when it comes to having drinks served and refilled.
Logan's absolutely has the best sliders on this earth! The bread they use for these delectable little burgers is the yeast rolls which they serve in baskets when you come in. These little guys are heaven on a yeast roll! They also come in buffalo chicken which my hubby says are just as good!
I never have an empty glass when we sit at the bar and the service is just perfect. People watching in the bar area is great along with the all you can eat buckets of peanuts; allowing the shells to be swept to the floor!
I like all the other food too, as everything I have had has been very good, but I can never go there again without having those sliders for my dinner! OHYUM!
