While you wait for a table, have a drink at the bar and toss peanut shells on the floor. The wait at Longhorn Steakhouse is often long, but the steaks are worth it. The chef starts with a lean cut of choice beef, rubs it with Longhorn's signature spices and grills it to perfection. The succulent filet mignon, the hearty rib eye and the ever popular t-bone are all part of the culinary repertoire. The signature entree, a huge 22-ounce porterhouse steak, is beloved by serious beef lovers. Non-beef eaters can enjoy chicken and seafood dishes.
Shipley Donuts, or Shipley's as it is also called, offers more than sixty different varieties of fresh and delicious doughnuts. This small, Southern doughnut chain began in 1936 in Houston, Texas. The Hendersonville store has been serving up delicious doughnuts for as long as any of the locals can remember and way longer than the larger doughnut chains have been in town. Shipley Donuts have a little more to them than some of their national competitors, and they're not quite as sugary-sweet. If you want a tasty doughnut and you like the idea of trying what the locals love, Shipley's is the place. - Lynn-nore Chittom
