Restaurant Review: Longhorn Steakhouse

Full Disclosure:  I paid for this meal with my own money and I was in no way reimbursed for this blog post.  The opinions are completely my own.

Confession: I ate at this restaurant over a month ago. I didn’t forget to blog about it per se, I just had better things to tell you about. (like this restaurant, this lasagna, and these cookies.)

Longhorn Steakhouse is another steakhouse chain restaurant similar to Texas Roadhouse.  We decided to go there because that was the kind of food that we wanted, and it is new to the area.

The meal started with bread and butter – as you can expect from most steakhouse restaurants. I don’t think you’ll ever hear me complain about complimentary bread.

I started with a strawberry-vodka-lemonade that I’m sure has a more fun name than that but I don’t remember what it is.  It was delicious, not super strong but it definitely had a kick.

I had a side salad to start.  It was a pretty typical restaurant side salad – lettuce, cheese, croutons and onion.

For my meal I had a filet and a baked potato – my typical steakhouse order. I generally order my steak medium, which I did this time, but it definitely was more on the medium-well to well-done end of the spectrum.  It wasn’t bad, I ate it, just compared to other delicious restaurant steaks that I’ve had, this one was definitely sub par.

The potato was good, but again, nothing spectacular.

The husband got the filet as well, but topped with cheese and fried onions, and with a loaded baked potato. While mine was was a bit over done, his was definitely under done.

Overall, the meal was alright but not spectacular.  For somewhere with Steakhouse in their name, I wish I could say that you should go there for the steak, but I don’t think I can do that.

We did have some leftovers that we took home, and I was pleasantly surprised that the bags and takeout containers were all made out of post consumer materials and reusable!

The takeout container was even dishwasher safe! I wish more places would go this way in their containers, I hate to bring home a container that just gets thrown away the next day.

Taste: C+, pretty average.  Definitely not what I would expect from a “steakhouse”
Cost: B, not super expensive, it would have been pretty reasonably priced if the food was delicious, but it was not.

Would I go there again? I don’t think so.  If I felt like steaks, I would chose somewhere else.
