It is always a struggle for me to find a restaurant to eat at with my family that offers healthy alternatives for weight conscious people. Fortunately companies like LongHorn Steakhouse have realized that this is important and have created the “Flavorful under 500” menu.
“Flavorful under 500” is a new menu section LongHorn has introduced as part of our ongoing commitment to providing our guests with greater choice and variety. We’re committed to providing our guests with a broadly appealing menu featuring a variety of fresh steak, chicken and fish entrees. Our “Flavorful under 500” entrees include a:
- · 7-oz. Flo’s Filet
- · 6-oz. or 8-oz. Renegade Sirloin
- · 7-oz. LongHorn Salmon
- · 8-oz. Grilled Fresh Rainbow Trout
- · 6-oz. Sierra Chicken
All entrees are paired with steamed vegetables or green beans and a side salad, and the complete meal is less than 500 calories. (Paired with steamed vegetables or green beans only at lunch.)
I recently went to our local LongHorn and ordered the 7 oz. Flo’s Filet and it was great. I also got green beans and a side salad. It was a nice change to eat out with my family and not beat myself up over how bad my meal might be for me. I didn’t feel hungry afterwards (actually I couldn’t eat it all) and I didn’t feel like I was being robbed of a flavorful meal. I think LongHorn did it right.
