Longhorn Steakhouse Breaks Ground on First Location in Kingsland, GA.

LongHorn Steakhouse today announced the groundbreaking of its first location in Kingsland, Ga. LongHorn anticipates that the new restaurant will open in May 2011 and will begin seeking job applicants in late March 2011.

The chain, which operates more than 340 restaurants and employs 18,000 people, expects to hire team members from the surrounding area. LongHorn is looking forward to helping the local Kingsland economy and furthering its presence in Georgia.

Best known for its atmosphere and flavor of the American West, the new LongHorn will be located at 121 Crown Pointe Pkwy. The 5,000-square foot restaurant will employ up to 85 team members and seat more than 200 guests.

“LongHorn is proud to be an active member of the Georgia community – our founding state – and we are pleased to be opening our first location in Kingsland,” said Paul Livrieri, senior vice president of operations for LongHorn. “In these tough economic times, we are confident that our creation of new jobs and tradition of community service will add value to the city of Kingsland.”

LongHorn opened its first restaurant in Atlanta 28 years ago and has grown steadily – becoming known for its passion for grilling fresh, never frozen, steaks served in a relaxed, comfortable steakhouse atmosphere. But that first restaurant almost didn’t survive its initial year in business until good fortune fell from the sky in the form of a freak snowstorm in Atlanta. After stranded motorists (including a local restaurant critic) sought refuge inside, word quickly spread about the delicious steaks and genuine western hospitality.

LongHorn is known for more than its signature hand-seasoned Flo’s Filet and the bone-in Outlaw Ribeye. LongHorn chefs love to grill fresh fish and chicken in addition to steak. Items such as LongHorn Salmon, a fresh, hand-cut salmon fillet seasoned with a bourbon marinade; fall-off-the-bone tender Baby Back Ribs; and Parmesan Crusted Chicken, two juicy chicken breasts grilled and topped with a parmesan cheese and garlic crust, are just some of the other specialties guests will find on the menu.
