SPRINGFIELD, NJ - The Darden Group’s LongHorn Steakhouse is having the finishing touches completed for a planned opening date of October 31 for its Springfield location.  A sign out front has a website listed to apply online for jobs. The website is www.LongHornSteakhouse.com/Careers.

This chain began in 1981 in Atlanta Georgia with one man’s passion for the perfect steak. It was a relatively unknown restaurant until, quoting from their website, “A freak snowstorm hit Atlanta in 1982, stranding motorists and drawing them to one of the only hospitable places available – a restaurant then called LongHorn Steak and Restaurant and Saloon. Tales of expertly grilled steaks soon spread like wildfire.”

The LongHorn Steakhouse was built on the site of what was the West 22 Diner, 272  US-22 W, Springfield. The Diner closed earlier this year.
