I'll take that as the food is good, portions are smaller than most places, and there are no tv's.

Avenue B is the best restaurant in the city right now IMO. I thought the portions were reasonable personally. And its BYO.

No TV.

It's all part of Michael Ilitch's plan to takeover Pittsburgh in revenge for the Red Wings loss last year in the SCF.

Avenue B was very good, i'm not sure where LITT got the small portions thing, maybe you got chinced on a dish because i was just barely able to clear my plate.

They are opening up a Texas Roadhouse in the Great Southern Shopping Center in Bridgeville.

Its no Ruth's or Morton's, but I think it is def. better than Lonestar or Outback.

Meh, haha. This seems like saying Pittsburgh is no New York or Boston, but I think it is def. better than Buffalo or Newark.

well, would you rather live in buffalo or pittsburgh? :lol:

for what it is--a decently-priced corporately ran steakhouse, it serves the purpose (the rolls they give you are solid). when comparing to the others in the same market, longhorn may be the best, but texas roadhouse isnt too shabby of a corpo-joint.

agreed. as far the corporate-run steakhouses, I would rank them as such (not including Morton's, Ruth's, Capital Grille, etc as even though they are corporate, they are a little too nice to be ranked in the same group with the regular steakhouses)...

1. Longhorn
2. Texas Roadhouse




3. Lone Star / Outback

Hartwood Restaurant in Hartwood Acres.

http://hartwoodrestaurant.com/

Highly recommended for any special occasion. Upscale restaurant in a bookstore. It's pretty cool. They have great seafood dishes.
