Longhorn steakhouse
« on: February 18, 2013, 06:46:35 PM »
Do any of you have experience with them? I can't recall them being mentioned here before. Currently we avoid eggy places altogether, so we're limited to Moe's and chipotle. I see they have chicken tenders on the kids menu. I'd bet they're eggy...

I thought they were one of the ones with buckets of peanuts on every table and shells all over the floor...

No, no buckets of peanuts there.  I used to think that too, but had it confused with someplace else.  They are actually good for PA.  I don't deal with egg, so I'm not sure about that, but at the two locations we've been to, they are allergy aware enough to look into and get a knowledgable answer.

yes- I think I used to confuse them with Texas Roadhouse...they've got the peanuts.  I'll have to stop in and scope it out.

They actually made Allergy Eats recent top list of allergy friendly restaurants, which has been much heralded in the last week.

Mac, I had that in the description, but that line  doesn't seem as noticible here as on the old site.  That's the only thing that made me consider it. I just assume every steak house is a giant peanut bomb, lol

Actually getting a bit excited here! It would be so awesome to be able to take the boys to a sit down restaurant  :heart:

Just called our local Longhorn.  The only peanuts in house are those at the bar, and those are only brought out upon request.  Currently, the only fresh eggs in the kitchen are for a steak special they have going.  Their fried foods are just in a buttermilk wash. Their desserts are all may contains/ made in facility for both, but that's OK.

Maybe DH and I will have our next date night there to scope it out ;)

They must have changed their peanut policy because the one close to our house used to have buckets on the table and shells all over the floor.  We haven't been in years because of that.

I don't go. Bad experience with them. No reaction, just an a-hole manager.
