Bloomin' Onion's sales rose in April attributable to improved restaurant capacity, pent-up consumer demand, and more stimulation.
Cracker Barrel's customer satisfaction dropped 1%, but it's still a favourite. Same-store sales fell 22% in the second quarter as dine-in restrictions remained.
Cracker Barrel's off-premise sales accounted for 30% of all sales over the same year, forcing the company to try a chicken-and-biscuits-only virtual brand.
More steakhouses! Texas Roadhouse has been a customer satisfaction leader for numerous years, so it's no surprise it's in the top three.
The company providing Texas-style food with a back-road atmosphere saw first-quarter sales rise.
Same-store sales at company-owned steakhouses were up 18.5% from 2018 and 8.6% from 2019.
Olive Garden, LongHorn's sibling company, came in second. The chain's recent sales hit 2019 levels.
Olive Garden made a successful shift to off-premise sales during the pandemic, the chain's pastas, soups, salads, and breadsticks are replacing home-cooked dinners.
LongHorn Steakhouse's customer satisfaction ratings fell by one point, but it's still first. The Darden-owned brand has achieved record sales for the quarter ending May 30.
Flo's Filet is the chain's most popular fire-grilled steak cut. LongHorn also offers chicken, seafood, burgers, chicken sandwiches, and salads for lunch.
