LongHorn Steakhouse History
The history of the LongHorn Steakhouse is more akin to a story than an actual historical telling. Its main plot could well make the subject of a Hollywood blockbuster. It’s a story of human togetherness. A story of people gathered together by unforeseeable events. But most of all, it’s a story about steaks. Good steaks. So good, that the entire legacy of LongHorn is not based on nifty marketing moves and buying out other smaller chains in the country. No. The LongHorn legacy is on steaks. Oh, and also some pretty fine Margaritas
Back in 1981, George McKerrow Jr. founded the first-ever LongHorn restaurant together with his father. It is called the LongHorn Steaks Restaurant & Saloon, and it was in the center of Atlanta, Georgia, on Peachtree Street. The restaurant was off to a slow start, its competition from across the street taking most customers from them.
Just over the road, a restaurant called Harrison’s had been standing for a long, and already had the fidelity of much of the people around. No one tried the newcomers, mainly because they stay at Harrison’s. This was also the story of Ron Hudspeth and Lewis Grizzard, columnists for local newspapers the Atlanta Journal, and the Constitution. Both popularized the bar in Harrison’s, praising the abilities of ‘Pete the barkeep.’
LongHorn Steakhouse Growth
You may remember that in January that year, Atlanta was struck by a merciless snowstorm that literally came out of the blue. These stranded people, many of whom were motorists who regularly passed by the city. Feeling the potential in the situation, McKerrow quickly worked his magic. The story of how McKerrow gave $1 drinks and specials to everyone that was stranded during that terrible month spread like wildfire after both columnists featured it in their respective newspapers.
LongHorn rode the SnowJam of `82 and emerged stronger. Soon enough, people from all over the state came to visit the famed restaurant and taste those steaks everyone was talking about. In 1996, the company changed its name to LongHorn Steakhouse. By 2001, they had already opened 136 locations throughout the East, Midwest, and Southwest. In 2007, LongHorn Steakhouse was acquired by Darden Restaurants Inc. which greatly invested in the company. By 2013, it had 370 locations. In 2014, the official report says they had 435. Today, their website says that that number grew to over 450.

Complaints & Comments
The reviews of LongHorn Steakhouse locations vary greatly. While most are praising their excellent steaks and margaritas, some have been complaining about the service.
“Mister Brown,” says in a Google review that one waitress had behaved in a racist and xenophobic way to his family of migrants of 10 years. So, according to the complaint, the waitress forgot to bring them water one time, and when prompted for it she responded in a mockingly xenophobic manner, imitating their thick accent.
“Mackenzie Romero,” said that she wanted to place an order for a carry-out at 10:10 at night on a Saturday. The people at the specific LongHorn said that they doubted she could make it to the location by 11, their closing time. Romero said that she could have made it to the store in 10 minutes, as she lived very close, but ordered from somewhere else.
Despite these complaints, remember that there are many other reviews that praise LongHorn locations, so do not be deterred by them, and if you encounter any problem, don’t hesitate to take it up with the manager of the specific restaurant.
