LongHorn Steakhouse was founded in 1981 by George McKerrow, Jr. and his father. McKerrow ran restaurants in San Francisco and had experience through the 70’s and 80’s before opening their first location, originally called LongHorn Steaks Restaurant & Saloon, on Peachtree Street in Atlanta, Georgia.  Soon LongHorn was known for their top quality steaks grilled in a butter sauce.

If you stopped by for lunch, you’ll find sandwiches, burgers, soups, and salads.
