I love when I get a press release announcing a new place to eat in Lubbock! I got this one yesterday...

Next Monday, April 29, Lubbock will receive its newest restaurant: a LongHorn Steakhouse opening at 4805 S. Loop 289 and led by Managing Partner Edward Dugger.

LongHorn Steakhouse prides itself on providing guests with a cut-above steakhouse experience through its food – most notably expertly grilled, boldly seasoned steaks – and friendly service, all in a setting that celebrates the rugged landscape of the American West. With a goal of becomingAmerica’s favorite steakhouse, LongHorn currently operates more than 400 restaurants in 37 states.

The 6,320-square foot restaurant will seat more than 240 guests and will create approximately 80-100 new jobs for the surrounding community.

The opening will be celebrated with a ribbon cutting on Monday, April 29.

They also sent me this picture of their "Porterhouse for Two"...or if you're ME "Porterhouse for One"!
