Description: Bulls Steakhouse was established in 1991 as a casual family steakhouse with the main focus on personalized service and exceptional food at a great value. Owners Kevin Middleton and Jim Lemon insist on giving personal attention to every guest that walks in the door. We believe that "service" isn't just about taking the guest's order and serving their food. "It's the attention to the small things that gives the guest the feeling of importance." We want every guest to feel special. Unlike the chain restaurants,at Bulls, the owners and managers walk the dining room checking on every guest to make sure that they are enjoying their dining experience. In addition to the personalized service at Bulls, you can expect equal attention given to the food we serve. In the initial years, Bulls started with a very limited menu specializing in prime rib, steaks, chicken, and sandwiches. Over the years we have added many dishes. The menu has evolved to include: seafood, tex-mex, pork, entree salads, and a large variety of appetizers. Specializing in steaks and prime rib, you can be certain that you are served the highest quality beef possible. All of the beef is choice grade and aged in house. Steaks are cut daily by a trained meat cutter. Prime rib is prepared and slow cooked in a special oven to ensure its tenderness, flavor, and juices are not compromised. Other signature items include our famous homemade chicken salad (which is made daily using fresh chicken tenders), and homemade chili. What ever your appetite is asking for... Whether it's a salad, burger, sandwich, chicken, seafood, fajitas, burritos, pork chops, steaks or prime rib, you can be assured that the quality and consistency is unbeatable when dining at Bulls.

“Like a steakhouse from your childhood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2011

Little oil candles on the table, wooden tables and chairs with arms, wood paneling, fireplace, lounge separate from the dining room, and not roaring loud like the steakhouses of today. My family and I went to this restaurant while we were staying in Lynchburg to escape hurricane Irene. First, I've got to tell you, I thought we would never get there. Get good directions if you are coming from Route 460. It was worth the drive, we had a great meal. The salad with slivered almonds was a nice touch to start the dinner. Our party had the ribeyes, filet mignon, shrimp scampi, prime rib, and a tex mex dinner including burritos and chili and it was all good. My husband was a Chi Chi's fan when it was in our area and he was so excited to see the mexican fried ice cream on the dessert menu. He said it was comparable to Chi Chi's dessert and that he was sorry that this restaurant was not closer to home. Take the drive to Bulls for a good steak or Tex Mex dinner in Lynchburg.

“My favorite Lynchburg Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2011

I am not sure why this doesn't have a review so I thought I would share. Bulls is an awesome Tex-Mex Restaurant. It should be at the top of the list for Lynchburg in my opinion.

“Great food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2010

Bull's has a menu that will fit any taste or budget. You can get anything from salads, burgers, burritos, fajitas, great steaks, seafood, etc. - whatever you are in the mood for.
One of the few restaurants that still has a totally separate smoking area. Great neighborhood restaurant/bar.

“Not as great as it used to be but we'll give it another try”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2010

It's casual and cozy and the steaks had always been excellent. The steaks used to look unassuming on the plate; friends we brought used to be kind of leary about our raves about these steaks...and then they tasted it and it was delicious. The last two times we were there we were sad that the taste had slipped. Perhaps a different cut. We'll come back though since service were always excellent.
Bull's also has at least one party room we noticed.
