On Monday, December 3, Wallisville received its newest restaurant: a LongHorn Steakhouse located at 6201 E. Sam Houston Pkwy and led by Managing Partner Derrick Smithson.
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 becoming America’s favorite steakhouse, LongHorn currently operates more than 400 restaurants in 37 states.
Houston – and Texas in general – is an important growth market for LongHorn. The restaurant, which first entered Texas in 2010, currently has 17 successful locations throughout San Antonio (6), Austin (5), McAllen (2), Houston (3) and Texarkana (1). The Wallisville restaurant will be the fourth location in the Houston market.
The 6,270-square foot restaurant will seat more than 240 guests and will create approximately 80-100 new jobs for the surrounding community. As part of the restaurant’s pre-opening training period, the restaurant hosted a Friends and Family night with proceeds benefiting the Boys & Girls Clubs of South Houston.
