LongHorn Ready to Charge into San Antonio Market

LongHorn Steakhouse will open its first Texas location on Monday with a store at 5803 N. Loop 1604 W.

Two others in the city will follow this spring and summer.

The chain, owned by Darden Restaurants, offers steaks as well as chicken, seafood and ribs in a full-service yet casual setting.

“We think LongHorn is a perfect fit for Texas,” said president Dave George at a preview party. “And we’re pleased to be launching it in San Antonio. It’s a great state, and we know Texas loves beef.”

The chain, which also operates Red Lobster and Olive Garden, has plans for up to 30 LongHorns across the state, including up to six in the San Antonio market, George said.

The second location, at I-35 and Zarzamora, will open in May, while a store at Loop 1604 and Culebra should open in July.

George attributed the success of steakhouse, which started 25 years ago in Atlanta, to the freshness of ingredients. “Our steaks are fresh, never frozen. Our salmon is fresh, never frozen,” he said. “High-quality, fresh ingredients are integral to our success.”

George also said the appeal was the development of special seasonings designed to complement the various cuts of meat. “We have found the perfect blend of flavors for the right cut of meat,” he said.

LongHorn will be open 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Sunday-Thursday and 11 a.m.-11 p.m. Friday-Saturday. For a copy of the menu, click here.

Make Your Own Red Lobster Cheddar Biscuits

These biscuits have long been an addiction for many Red Lobster fans.

Red Lobster Cheddar Biscuits

2 cups biscuit mix
1/2 cup shredded mild cheddar cheese
2/3 cup milk
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
Parsley flakes, for sprinkling


Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.

Stir together the biscuit mix, cheese and milk until a soft dough forms. Beat with a wooden spoon for about 30 seconds.

Spoon onto a greased cookie sheet. Smooth down the tops to prevent hard points from forming.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes until tops are brown.

While the biscuits are baking, melt the butter in a pan and stir in the garlic powder.

Once the biscuits are done, brush the butter on the tops, sprinkle with parsley flakes and serve hot.

Makes 10 biscuits.
