“Average in every way”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

We visited Longhorn for a Friday lunch with another couple. We were greeted in a friendly manner, and seated immediately. We were given a large, comfortable booth. Our waitress arrived within minutes to take drink orders, and supply menus. However, she was far less attentive once our orders were placed.

The decor was "western" (in a way), as in Cowboy hats on the walls, Cowboy boot collections on shelves on the walls, etc. The place was fairly noisy, but that was because of the good-sized lunch crowd that was present.

Lunch prices, including their lunch specials, were all in an average price range for this type of restaurant. Three of us had cheeseburgers, which were very large. The burgers were overcooked (all ordered medium rare, but received well-done), but they tasted okay, thanks to the toppings of lettuce and tomato, which were fresh. The burgers were served with regular fries, which were plentiful, and tasty enough, according to my companions.

I had the Mac and Cheese, which comes with either a soup (select from the menu) or a salad. I chose the French Onion Soup, and ordered a side garden salad with Bleu Cheese dressing.

My salad was large, but the ingredients were nothing special. Diced cukes, tomato, and red pepper were mixed in with iceberg lettuce. The Bleu Cheese dressing was fairly watery, and did not contain any chunks of cheese that I could detect.

The French Onion soup, was flavorful, but unfortunately, only lukewarm. The Mac and Cheese was creamy, but the flavor was bland.

There was nothing terribly "wrong" with any particular item we ordered (except perhaps for the overcooked beef, and lukewarm soup). But neither was there anything special, or memorable, about the food.

All in all, an average dining experience, at average prices.

“Outstanding Value”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

We went to Longhorn with another couple to celebrate my birthday. They had a deal for 2 meals, an appetizer, and a dessert to share for a set price (which I think was fair being a cheap person). The steak was outstanding!! (rare) Our server was fun and I think even added a bit more to my birthday dessert.
We will return.

“Love it!!!”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Inviting, clean, friendly atmosphere. The wait staff, especially Kate at the bar, is fantastic. Workers go out of their way to make you feel welcome. I love the steak dinners, but there are other entrees worth trying. Don't forget appetizers like Soutwest Shrimp or soups like Shrimp/Lobster Chowder.
A great way to spend time out and inexpensive, too!!!
