So many times for fathers day I am asked what I want. While some of my favorite gifts in the past have been the homemade kind from my kids, I have to say that food also warms my heart and fills gullet. At the same time, I am also a sucker for a great steak. I was so excited to be able to go out for the first time to try a local Longhorn Steakhouse with my family as an early father’s day present.
In entering the restaurant, I was first drawn to the decor. With a southwest feel, you get drawn into the feel of the theme of the food that you will be found here. Whether it was the artwork, the antler adorned light fixtures, or cowboy motifs, all are placed to transport you into a feeling the of the southwest. Even the music, Country of course, was well laid out, and one thing that was great was that while the music was playing it was not loud or over-played, but instead was just right.
All of my family were impressed with the breadth of the menu itself. You will not only find steaks (7 types of steak to choose from) at this restaurant, but a wide array of food that any patron will be able to connect with. If you are looking for a huge variety of steaks though, as I was in this visit, this restaurant will deliver. Even better though was the fact that the steaks that they offer range from prices starting at $11.99 on up so depending on the cut of beef you want and how much you can eat, you can definitely find a bit of everything. Most of my family, except the kids, all got steaks. The kids were happy as well with their choices on the menu. As a parent the prices for these children’s menu options were very reasonable and they get a ton of food, as did the adults. The adult’s entrees also came with a ton of food, including salad and a side dish.
When we received our food the only thing we all could say was WOW! The steaks that the adults received with mouth-watering and very well flavored. The food was made to our specification and the flavor was out of this world. I was the only one at the table to get the fully loaded sweet potato, and for any of you that love this amazing spud, I highly recommend, but know that it is definitely sweet!
As you can tell we were very excited about the food and the atmosphere in this restaurant. On top pf all of this was the service though. From the greeting at the door, which was held ope for us, we felt a part of the experience. The waitress we worked with was very attentive, and the manager that stopped at our table truly wanted to hear about our experience (and she did not know I was reviewing the restaurant).
With all of this said, I have to give five stars to Longhorn Steakhouse, for all of the reasons that I mentioned above and so much more. So if you are looking for a great way to show your love for a dad this father’s day, give them the gift of a great meal (and steak) and Longhorn Steakhouse can definitely offer this!
