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
