If you live or just visiting the American South, then you might want to try out Logan’s Roadhouse. This chain steakhouse is quite unique, starting with its undeniably laidback vibes.
The menu is rather extensive, so it’s pretty much a certainty that everyone at your table will find something they like. But if the long list of available dishes overwhelms you, then here’s some recommended items that should be at the top of your order list:
If it’s your first time to visit a Logan’s Roadhouse, it makes sense to immediately try their signature menu item. And this is the appropriately-named The Logan.
At first glance, it doesn’t really look all that special, admittedly. It’s just a 12-ounce sirloin. But they sure cook it to perfection, and it’s juicy and lean. Its very simplicity makes it great.
Add some of the fantastic yeast rolls (another famous Logan’s Roadhouse menu item), and it’s a terrific experience. These yeast rolls are legendary, and you’ll find plenty of copycat recipes online.
If you’re in the mood for some surf and turf, or you want a special burger, then get this towering burger. It’s unlikely that you’ve had a burger before that’s quite like this one.
The tower starts with the yeast roll for the bun, and then you get a pretty thick burger patty. It’s then followed by the popcorn shrimp on top, to sate your surf and turf needs.
That’s just the start. Next, you get the crispy onions that offer more flavor and crunch to each bite. You then get the creamy Cajun sauce that adds some creaminess to the flavor profile while it brings all the other flavors together.
Country Fried Steak
Yes, it’s steak given the classic fried chicken treatment. That is, the steak is breaded and fried. And you know what? It’s actually one of the yummiest items on the menu!
They bread this steak perfectly. The crisp and crunch level is just right, but it’s not so much that it overpowers the flavor of the meat. The meat itself is delicious, and that’s enhanced when it’s doused in white pepper gravy. The creamy and rich gravy goes nicely with the breading.
This might not be the kind of steak you’d normally get at a fine-dining steakhouse, but Logan’s Roadhouse is all about downhome comfort foods that you can enjoy while you relax. And you’ll definitely enjoy this steak!
Mesquite-Grilled Salmon Caesar
What if you’re in the mood for just a salad? In that case, you can still try something special in Logan’s Roadhouse.
This is a Caesar salad, so you get the expected bed of romaine lettuce with the creamy Caesar dressing. What makes this unique is that you have the mesquite-grilled salmon on top. The salmon is flavorful enough that it even pleases folks who normally don’t like fish at all.
Southern Fried Catfish
Some people say that no visit to the American South is complete without trying out the catfish. And you might as well do that in Logan’s Roadhouse.
They bread the farm-raised catfish with cornmeal by hand, and it’s not too thick at all to complement the mild flavor of the fish. It’s then served with tartar sauce for dipping, or you can just pour all that tartar sauce over the catfish. Either way, it’s truly a southern classic!
