HAVE'NT been to the MELTING POT, Andrea, but we have another new fondue place near me as well, called SIMPLY FONDUE in Mays Landing.
(also part of a chain) I've been to Simply Fondue, and although I really like the fondue idea in THEORY, I did'nt care for the implementation.. did'nt like the way the beef and chicken tasted..I found it plain and a littl
I prefer a good charbroiled steak, with lots of crust.

However, the melted s'mores desserts were fun to make, and I LOVED the "Almond Joy" martini I had!


I went on a date to a Melting Pot many years ago. It was fun, and romantic. The whole sharing thing was fun.

I have been to Longhorn's on Merritt Island,FL many times and have always enjoyed it. The chicken tenders are so good I rarely get anything else!

Agreed! I love their "entree" chicken tenders!! (even MORE so than their new bite sized tenders that we had as an appetizer)

And these are both not to be confused with their "boneless chicken wings", which are something else entirely, and don't have that good hand breaded taste. Anyone confused yet?

That's cute, Susan!
Looks like I have been a bad influence on him...although he tries to be so good!
When we watched the Phillies World Series game in October at the casino, he took the rolls off his hot dogs..
and he was good at the Longhorn, BUT the time before, when I took him to Chef Vola's in A.C., the loaf of bread looked SO good, he could'nt resist..
said it was the first time he had bread in like a YEAR!

Ellen, Robert's a cutie!

I would love all of those dipping sauces. It's fun alternating.

Thank you for showing us Atlantic City. I was there in the early 80's and it didn't look that great. Spent a lot of time walking the boardwalk and eating thin plain cheese pizza with something I've never seen served with pizza here in Los Angeles.... garlic powder!

It was a revelation!

Your steaks also look very good. Did you have another for dessert?

Hello All,
Ellen, Robert is not the cutie, You are.
I didn't look at the food when you were in the
pictures. I will now go back and try to look
at the food. I am glad you are breaking bread
with good company while having good food.
Take Care,
Fieldthistle

I don't know whether it still is the case, but "back in the day" NYC by-the-slice pizza joints almost always had crushed red pepper, dried oregano and garlic powder on the counter so the patrons could doctor their pizza to taste.

Let's see; your name is Chuck and you're chubby?!??!

All I know is that when I hear your name, I think of a double burger (a chuck burger?!), and I start getting very hungry!


Remember the movie American Graffiti? A double chubby chuck is what "The Toad" ordered at the drive in rest.

I did the same thing. I was going to say the first picture looks sizzling and so do the steaks.

Nice one, Bill, but not even close.

Well, my wife, 14-month-old, and I made it to a Longhorn's steakhouse last night.

1. The bread was very good.
2. We had the shrimp and crab dip appetizer which was also very good.
3. Our salads were fair. The lettuce could have used some help but overall it was decent.
4. I ordered the 12 oz ribeye, medium. The steak came just as I requested. It was very salty. Also, I was a little surprised at the cut, since it appeared to be more like a strip than a rib-eye. Typically rib-eyes I have contain more fat, which adds to the flavor but also requires more cutting. I noticed no visible fat in my steak, which was interesting.
5. I had the cinnamon and butter sweet potato as a side, which was good.
6. My wife had a filet wrapped in bacon and cheddar which she said was good, but also mentioned it was very salty.

Overall, we liked it and will probably go back. The restaurant seems to be aimed at the Outback crowd, but I would say they are a notch or 2 above Outback. I am anxious to try more of their appetizers and possibly a dessert. The steaks remind me of another chain, Texas Roadhouse, due to the saltiness.

Hi collin,
So neat you said you would go to Longhorn, and even followed thru with a report right away!
I've had their rib eye once before, and it did'nt really agree with me, so I sent it back..

My lettuce could've been crispier, but my bf's long romaine leaves were real crisp..

I love their homemade ranch, chiptote ranch and blue cheese dressings.

I bet your 14 month old helped you out with the cinnamon and butter sweet potato!
Kid's like that sweet stuff!

Welcome to Roadfood!

Tell them to go lighter on the Prairie Dust seasoning they dust their steaks with before cooking.

Ellen, do you know if there's a Longhorn out this way?

Don't know where you are, but this will let you find out if there's one any place close...

If they're gonna be a western steakhouse, shouldn't the NY Strip at least be called by its proper name of a KC strip? just sayin'

In the past I have always had a steak at Longhorn, but recently I did not want red meat.

Instead, I had a a Southern Fried Chicken Salad and Shrimp & Lobster Chowder. The salad was outstanding-"Lightly breaded fresh chicken breast slices, mixed field greens and romaine, red onion, mandarin oranges, spicy pecans and warm, sweet cornbread croutons. Served with bacon-honey mustard dressing". The salad was HUGH,lots of chicken!! I was only able to eat about 1/3 of it. I especially liked the cornbread croutons & the bacon-honey mustard dressing. The soup was good also. I could not find any lobster, but it had plenty of shrimp, potatoes.

Thanks for the locator.

Seems the closest is in Chandler, AZ.

Where is Chandler, AZ?

Still the case in NYC, as well as NJ.

It is a revelation (for me) that this is not common practice, everywhere else. I travel quite often, but rarely eat pizza, when I am away from home.

The few times I've been to Longhorn I've always liked my steak and thouhgt it was really good. I'd almost prefer it to someplace really expensive.

Hey Ellen!

I have to do the Longhorn Steakhouse secret shopper thing tomorrow or the next day.  What do you recommend?  I'm thinking of starting with the triple chicken bites thing.
