The Making of a Legend
In 1981, one man set out on a mission to bring legendary steak to the people of Atlanta, Georgia. His passion for grilling was great but business wasn't quite booming. Then, in 1982, a freak snowstorm hit the city, stranding motorists and driving them into the hospitable comforts of a joint called LongHorn Steaks Restaurant & Saloon. Tales of the expertly grilled steaks spread, and the legend of LongHorn was born.
By 1990, the restaurant had spread throughout the East, Midwest and Southwest United States and Puerto Rico. LongHorn Steaks Restaurant & Saloon became LongHorn Steakhouse in 1996 and, in 2007, Darden Restaurants, Inc. purchased the restaurant.
Today, LongHorn continues the mission of grilling up legendary steaks done right, the LongHorn way. Our steak, chicken and seafood are always fresh, never frozen for a difference you can taste.
