LongHorn Steakhouse  


Founded in 1981 in Atlanta, Georgia, our restaurant began with one man's passion for perfect steak but with very few guests to convince. Then a freak snowstorm hit Atlanta in 1982, stranding motorists and drawing them to one of the only hospitable places available - a restaurant then called LongHorn Steaks Restaurant & Saloon. Tales of expertly grilled steaks soon spread like wildfire, and the legend of LongHorn was born.

We pride ourselves on our food and use high-quality ingredients, bold seasoning and fresh, never frozen steaks. Beyond our perfectly grilled steaks, we offer fresh grilled chicken, fresh Atlantic salmon marinated in our house-made brown sugar bourbon marinade, and baby back ribs that are slow roasted for four hours so that the meat falls off the bone and then basted in our homemade barbecue sauce. We feature seasonally relevant ingredients and develop dishes that highlight the freshest flavors of the season on our Chef’s Showcase and Peak Season menus.
