Today I had my first experience at Longhorn Steakhouse. The picture above was taken at their location in Winter Garden where I was doing business today.
Even though I am against hunting of animals (and believe me, I hope the bull was fake), I thought the scene had something cozy and of the “American West” to it that I enjoyed. In fact, the interior of Longhorn Steakhouse in general was very pleasant, almost like a cottage in the mountains (kind of goes well with the low temperatures lately, I don’t think it would have had the same effect on me had it been 90 degrees outside…).
I have to say I quite liked this restaurant for lunch (despite my usual reluctance towards chain restaurants…). I was not only positively surprised by their very affordable prices but also their fast and friendly service. For less than $12 I had a good size Parmesan crusted sirloin steak, cooked to order and a tasty baked potato with sour cream and butter. Before the meal they served bread and butter (very good, and let me tell you, I am picky when it comes to bread) and my meal came with a salad (good size and fresh taste).
