“Fast becoming the BEST in Champaign.......”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

I was taken to the Longhorn for my Birthday! A good treat as I have been a couple of times since it opened its doors in Champaign. I can easily say that it is becoming my favorite steak house in the area. The service is always friendly and complete.

I enjoy the fact that even though they do not take reservations they will put you on the waiting list if you call and on your way (1 hr or less); The Outlaw Rib eye is the absolute best! If you arrive early no problem to have a cool drink at the bar and catch up with the latest news/sports on the flat screens.
Food and service always consistently good! I would recommend to all!

“FAMILY THANKSGIVING”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

We chose to have our family Thanksgiving at the Longhorn Steakhouse this year. (We have it the Sunday before the holiday). We are a family of 11. Several of us have birthdays at this time of year which makes it a combined festivity. They do not take reservations but ask that we call when we were 1/2 hour away so that they could prepare for us. When we arrived they had a large round table ready. We were all seated and were quite comfortable with lots of room. Our waitress was totally professional. She never made one mistake on our orders, and was constantly checking to make sure that she could help us in any way. The manager, Mike Massa, came by frequently to confirm they were there to make our event special. Everyone was able to order what they wanted and there were high acclaims of their food, no disappointments there. To please all 11 people is a miracle!! The restaurant was exceptionally clean, service excellent and the food wonderful. We can't wait til our next family dinner there.

“Best rib eye for the price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

My husband and I travel extensively. We discovered the LongHorn Steakhouse a few years ago and have eaten at this chain in numerous states. We always have the Outlaw Ribeye Steak in the bone which is nearly as good as the much more expensive one at Morton's Steakhouse. Always filled with flavor and tender. I love a good sweet potato which I always select along with asparagus. We have always had great service. I was rather surprised by the reviews on the Champagne restaurant so we decided to check it out and discovered it was as excellent as the other LongHorn Steakhouses in the other states. Very good for a chain restaurant very warmly decorated, clean and always have had great service. We are both particular regarding service and quality of the food since we met while in grad school while working in a great seafood restaurant. Cannot comment on the other steaks since we love the bone in rib eye so much.

“Just Your Average Longhorn Steakhouse”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

Typical Longhorn food. The bread is really good. Steaks are ok and the dessert is good. Service is a little slow.
