Black Angus Steakhouse

In 1964, Seattle's Black Angus Steakhouse offered steak, soup, salad, and a baked potato for $2.99. The family-friendly idea grew to 100 sites.

By 2009, Black Angus had 69 locations and filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy for the second time.

In 2011, the business unveiled a new BullsEye Bar concept that made several of its locations livelier. The chain's sales improved after the revamp.

Logan's Roadhouse

Logan's Roadhouse began in Lexington, Ky., in 1991. David Wachtel was a former CEO of Shoney's.

Logan's restaurants grew with strict supervision and high standards. Logan's publicised in 1995.

Outback Steakhouse

If Americans wanted a taste of Australia in the '90s, they only had to visit their local Outback, which was full of BBQ fans.

While the restaurant may not be what Australians have traditionally eaten (at least according to them), it has been one of America's most popular steakhouse brands for years.

But the chain has had issues. Since 2011, Outback has lost 10% of its stations, from 775 to 694 in 2021.

Del Frisco's Restaurant Group

Del Frisco's includes Double Eagle and Del Fresco's Grille. The steakhouse chain has won several honours.

Del Frisco's said it was going private after sales remained flat throughout 2019. The restaurant had a net loss of $6.4 million.
