New Steakhouse Planned For Tyler
In a 5-0 vote, The Tyler Planning and Zoning Commission approved a zone change to an area near South Broadway and Muller Garden Rd to bring in Saltgrass Steakhouse according to the Tyler Morning Telegraph.
Saltgrass Steakhouse is owned by Houston based Landry Restaurants.
If you're unfamiliar with the restaurant, they describe the "Saltgrass Legend" at saltgrass.com as follows:
"Our story dates back to the 1800s, when millions of Longhorns roamed freely throughout Texas. With the taste for beef becoming a newfound favorite in the North, Texas ranchers prospered as never before.
Each winter, the Longhorn were driven to the Texas Gulf Coast to graze on the rich coastal salt grass. And when they headed for market, they followed the legendary Salt Grass Trail, known far and wide for creating the best beef in the Lone Star State.
Our pledge is simple: Honor the old legends, while making a little history of our own.
In 1952, this historic trail ride was revived by four riders to publicize the opening of the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo. Today, the ride has become an annual celebration of the original Texas spirit. The first Saltgrass Steak House still stands along this historic trail.
Saltgrass Steak House recaptures the flavor of the open campfire. Steaks, chicken and seafood, chargrilled to perfection. Complete with breads, soups and desserts, made from scratch daily. Come see us soon."
