PR Newswire, ORLANDO, Fla. (May 24, 2016)
LongHorn Steakhouse is kicking off summer grilling season with its fourth annual Grill Us Hotline. The restaurant’s certified Grill Masters will be available via phone on Sunday, May 29, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET to provide expert tips just in time for holiday grill-outs.
According to a recent study, Memorial Day is one of the most popular grilling holidays of the year with 62 percent of grill owners firing up their grills this weekend.* To help grillers become heroes of their backyard grill-outs all summer long, the Grill Us Hotline is more accessible than ever this year with tips and how-to demonstration videos available 24/7 via text starting May 24 through Sept. 5.
“We understand the grilling process can be intimidating, and that’s why we’re here to help every step of the way,” said Jens Dahlmann, executive chef at LongHorn Steakhouse. “LongHorn Steakhouse will be open all weekend and we’d be happy to do the grilling if guests would rather leave that to us.”
