New Menu Item Tastings at Longhorn Steakhouse

I was recently invited for two new menu items at Longhorn Steakhouse and admittingly I had some bias as my expectations were not very high due to my poor experiences at Lone Star Steakhouse and other similar restaurants.


After arriving for our first visit, we were pleasantly surprised by the ambience and décor. It was relatively quiet with nice table and booths which were more than half full with diners even though it was 3:00 pm on a Sunday afternoon. Definitely a good sign.

Our second visit again was also on a Sunday afternoon.

Both times we had Diane as our waitress who was very attentive and timely with our food including the bread, salads, appetizers and drinks.

Below are the new menu items that we sampled.  All were good but our favorites were Flo’s Filet, a tender center cut filet mignon with grill seasonings and is one of the most tender steaks I have ever had and the strawberry pecan salad which had complimenting contrasting flavors of fresh fruit, mixed field greens, feta cheese and raspberry vinaigrette dressing.

Bottom line, food was very good rivaling other restaurants that charge twice the price and I’ve eaten at upscale steakhouses all over the United States including New York, Chicago, Las Vegas and San Francisco.

So, if you haven’t dined at Longhorn Steakhouse yet. Go!
