Goodbye, Ruby Tuesday
Steak lovers unite.
A LongHorn Steakhouse is coming to Platte County.
“We are looking to open in September,” said Jessica Dinon, a media spokesperson for the LongHorn corporate offices, in response to an inquiry from The Landmark this week.
A major remodeling of the former Ruby Tuesday building at 9770 NW Prairie View Road, which is west of I-29 at the Tiffany Springs exit, is underway and building permit paperwork taped in the window identifies the space as the future home of “LongHorn Steakhouse at Executive Hills North.”
Dinon told The Landmark this week that “as we get closer, I hope to be able to share more details with you.”
The former Ruby Tuesday restaurant at Tiffany Springs closed many months ago after the pandemic hit.
LongHorn Steakhouse was founded in 1981 and the franchise now has locations in the eastern United States as well as the Midwest and Southwest, as well as Puerto Rico.
There are other locations in the Kansas City metro not far from Platte County, including at Liberty and at Legends in Kansas City, Kan., but this will be the first LongHorn in Platte County.
LongHorn Steakhouse has a Western/Texan theme. Each restaurant is decorated with oil paintings, photos, and selected Western memorabilia that support the theme.
The restaurant is best known for serving various kinds of steak, including its “Flo’s Filet.”
In addition to steak, the menu also includes ribs, chicken, salmon, lobster, shrimp, and salads.
Appetizers include their “Texas Tonion” and “Wild West Shrimp,” and side dishes are also served.
LongHorn Steakhouse restaurant offers a full bar with draft and bottled beer, wine, and several signature margaritas. The lunch menu–which includes soups, salads, sandwiches and hamburgers–is available at most locations.
