Our Family Dining Experience at LongHorn Steakhouse

Our Family Dining Experience at LongHorn Steakhouse

While traveling to Orlando, my husband and I decided to visit LongHorn Steakhouse. Normally, we don’t splurge on meals unless there’s a special occasion and we usually favor locally owned restaurants. But we figured, well, it doesn’t really hurt to try something different for a change. Besides, my best friend had been raving about her own dinner date at LongHorn.

What We Ordered

So now let me share with you our own experience. LongHorn Steakhouse has been serving customers since its establishment in 1981. With approximately 579 locations worldwide, LongHorn stands out for its commitment to serving “fresh, never frozen steaks.”

Our culinary journey at LongHorn started with a glass of Woodbridge by Robert Mondavi cabernet sauvignon. With a modest yet satisfying wine selection, we found the perfect pairing for our steak dinner.

Meanwhile, my husband couldn’t resist ordering the exquisite LongHorn old-fashioned cocktail, which left him so impressed that he requested a second round. The drinks hit the mark in terms of flavor and affordability.

To whet our appetites, we indulged in LongHorn’s white-cheddar stuffed mushrooms. Packed with garlic-herb cheese and topped with a delightful Parmesan crust, these cheesy mushrooms were a savory delight. Even our picky eater, our son, couldn’t resist their deliciousness. The complimentary honey-wheat bread that accompanied our appetizer added a warm and comforting touch to the meal.

Intrigued by the buzz surrounding LongHorn’s Parmesan-crusted chicken, my daughter decided to try it herself. The dish, a social media sensation, consists of grilled chicken breasts smothered with creamy Parmesan cheese and a garlic cheese crust. Accompanied by a loaded baked potato and broccoli, it turned out to be a simple yet flavorful choice.

Included with my main course was a Caesar salad that impressed from the first bite. The hand-chopped romaine lettuce tossed with a garlicky, creamy Caesar dressing, topped with shaved Parmesan cheese and crunchy croutons, provided a refreshing and satisfying starter.

The Main Event

LongHorn Steakhouse lives up to its reputation when it comes to their steaks. I opted for Flo’s filet, a 6-ounce center-cut filet, perfectly seasoned and cooked to perfection. Served with a loaded baked potato, smothered in cheese and topped with bacon and scallions, the combination was a true delight. Meanwhile, my husband relished the famous 20-ounce Outlaw Ribeye, expertly prepared to medium doneness, resulting in a tender and buttery texture that exceeded our expectations.

The Value in the Experience

Our bill totaled $150 for our family of four. Considering the quality of the food, attentive service, and the overall satisfaction we felt, the price tag was quite reasonable. 

Our first visit to LongHorn Steakhouse proved to be a pleasant surprise, challenging our preconceived notions about chain restaurants. From the warm and friendly atmosphere to the mouthwatering dishes, LongHorn offered us a delightful dining experience.
