Let’s review Longhorn Steakhouse!
Founded in 1981 in Atlanta, GA, Longhorn Steakhouse is an American chain of casual dining restaurants with over 550 locations nationwide. The restaurant is best known for serving different types of steak. In addition to steak, the menu also includes ribs, chicken, salmon, lobster, shrimp and salads. There are two locations in Wichita and for this particular review we visited the store near NewMarket Square.
On arrival we were given free bread and butter. No complaints here; it was very satisfying and a great start to our meal.
Our entrees came with a choice of salads, and we went with a house salad with a Caesar salad. Everything was pretty basic; nothing too memorable or worth noting.
It’s time to come to the meat of the review, literally.
We had the sirloin and shrimp entree with a rare cooked ribeye with a side of fries which my daughter was asking for. The prawns were the best part of the meal, we loved the glaze which had a blast of butter and lemon. The fries were well seasoned, but not too firm; more fragile than anything else. None of this bothered my daughter, however, who ate each one happily.
As for the ribeye and the sirloin, they were rather disappointing. We couldn’t forget how salty the steaks were. The sirloin was extremely tough, while the ribeye was probably medium-rare to medium-rare. The main feature of our starters left a lot to be desired.
The only reason we went there was because we were given a gift card while on vacation which basically halved the price of our meal. But even with that, we weren’t impressed.
I felt bad for our server, who also acted as a bartender for the restaurant. This unfortunately led to quite a slow evening for us.
Here is the menu:
