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

The idea that Longhorn is in any way edible is absurd. Of those options, Outback is clearly the superior choice. Longhorn is revolting.

Smith & Wollensky is in the Morton/Cap Grille/Ruth Chris class and is very good. Texas Roadhouse I've never been to, but it sounds like the Outback class of steakhouses.

Taj Mahal on McKnight is a tremendous Indian restaurant, and the Monday/Thursday dinner buffet is an absolute steal at $10. http://www.tajmahalinc.com
