Atlanta Buckhead Midtown - 1981/2021
- Longhorn Steakhouse Great Food - 


All over Atlanta Buckhead Midtown, the Greater Atlanta Metro area and at over 500 locations across the US as of 2020, Longhorn Steakhouse offers truly tasty foods in a wide variety of selections.

In 2017, Longhorn Steakhouse opened in the city of Guayquil in the country of Equador. Not only in the US anymore!

After the year or more of caution about eating inside restaurants, memories of favorite places may become stronger and the pull to re-visit a special restaurant may prevail. Fortunately, at the Longhorn Steakhouse, attention to health concerns was front and center along with the food! Check it out ...




About Longhorn Steakhouse:

In 1981, George McKerrow, Jr. opened the first Longhorn with his friend Brian. Located on Peachtree Street, SnowJam '82 put the restaurant in the spotlight headed towards success. Weather at -2 degrees was much colder than Atlanta had experienced in many decades. For only $1.00 during the storm, he served signature alcoholic beverages that became VERY famous! George's hospitality to dozens of stranded motorists guaranteed lots of stories about the restaurant. 

The original Longhorn was located just behind the station wagon in the photograph above. Tables signed by patrons over the years at the first location now host guests at the Buckhead new location of the FIRST Longhorn as the staff are proud to point out!

THEN                                                    Now   -    2021



Writing about restaurants is to ask the readers to imagine other senses in addition to sight. When eating, we also have the senses of smell and taste in addition to sight. Maybe these photos will allow for the imagination to stimulate smell and taste!


Appetizers - Two of Many ...


    Firecracker Chicken Wraps           Cheddar Stuffed Mushrooms


Salads and Vegetables - One Each of Many ...


 Strawberry Pecan Ceasar Salad           Everything Baked Idaho Potato 


Main Event - And Many More Options...


     Flo's Filet with Lobster                     Char-Broiled Bone-In Rib Steak


 Grilled Shrimp                                       Salmon


Last But Not Least - Desserts! 


    Chocolate Stampede                            Strawberry Cream Shortcake


Bottom line? Returning to Longhorn Steakhouse proved a success. Each food item matched the memories and excelled in taste. 


What is that saying? A good time was had by all!

Hello Lynn - although it is a well-known restaurant known in many cities across the country, you have given Longhorn Steakhouse a community feel.
