Orange City set to get a LongHorn Steakhouse


     Another new restaurant is coming to Orange City. LongHorn Steakhouse is planning to set up shop in the building formerly occupied by Ruby Tuesday at 1212 Saxon Blvd., according to the Orange City Development Services Department.

     LongHorn Steakhouse is part of the Darden group of restaurant chains, which includes Olive Garden and Red Lobster. The chain is headquartered in Orlando.

     Dates for beginning renovation of the restaurant, and for a possible opening have not been announced.

     The former Ruby Tuesday building sits between two other restaurants along busy Saxon Boulevard. Both of the neighboring restaurants were closed by their original owners and repurposed by other food purveyors.

     Fazoli’s, to the west, was closed in 2010 to make way for Five Guys Burgers and Fries, and Bob Evans, to the east of the future Ruby Tuesday, closed and sat vacant until it reopened as Colt’s Pig Stand.
