Out and About: LongHorn Steakhouse Opens New Location in Orlando

LongHorn Steakhouse has opened its newest location on E. Colonial in front of the Orlando Fashion Square Mall

LongHorn Steakhouse has opened its newest location on E. Colonial in front of the Orlando Fashion Square Mall, and we were invited to a Friends & Family lunch dine to check it out.

I have never eaten at a LongHorn Steakhouse, and I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and the price points.

The server brought out a loaf of warm wheat bread with butter while we were looking over the menu. A nice tasty touch to start our meal.

We went with the Texas Tonion for our sharable dish – LongHorn’s version of the fried onion appetizer, drizzled with housemade crema and served with a zesty dip. It was good, but some of the onion pieces were still raw. We discussed it with the manager, and they brought another round that was much better.

That’s why they do these Friends & Family dines. So the crew has practice with actual guests, and they can get the feedback they need to tweak things before they open to the public. And I was satisfied with the way the situation was handled.

For an entree, my guest picked the 6oz. Flo’s Filet, described as a tender center-cut filet and a guest favorite. It was served cooked to order with her choice of side, and she really enjoyed it.

I decided to go with a lunch special: the BBQ Bacon Cheeseburger and fries. It too came out cooked to order, and I liked that the bacon was fully cooked and plentiful.
