pop-we Dinner Club Reviews Longhorn Steakhouse

This month population-we™ (pop-we) foodie Scott took us to the Longhorn Steakhouse. In the U.S. they have 370 restaurants in 35 states. There are three locations in the Omaha metro area: 7525 Dodge Street, 3040 S. 143 Plaza and 3727 Denmark Drive in Council Bluffs, Iowa. Our dinner club went to the Omaha location on Dodge Street. All Longhorn Steakhouse locations are decorated like the Wild West. The steakhouse we visited had antler chandeliers, saddles as well as taxidermy animals and scenic pictures along the walls. It is a relaxing atmosphere with a very rustic American West decor.
Boots above the threshold greet patrons to the steakhouse.

According to their website, they have been serving steaks, chicken and fish for more than 30 years. Always fresh, never frozen with a passion for grilling and hand seasoning. Known for Flo’s Filet and the Bone-In Outlaw Ribeye, fall off the bone ribs and hand cut salmon. While we were there I had one of their monthly specials: steak and bacon wrapped shrimp. The steak was cooked to a nice pink (medium) with flavorful seasonings. I enjoyed the steak as it was cooked perfectly, tender and juicy -- the way a steak should be savored. The bacon wrapped shrimp also was tasty and succulent.

Also, some pop-we foodies tried a couple appetizers. The stuffed mushrooms drew much praise with a creamy blend of cheeses and herbs. The button mushrooms were big and full of flavor. The other appetizer was a bacon wrapped potato wedges, though they were seasoned nicely the potato seemed quite dry; therefore, fell flat…disappointing.

After compiling the surveys from the other foodies the pop-we Dinner Club gives Longhorn Steakhouse: 4.3 star average on a scale of 1-5.
