Each steak is char grilled on an open flame, topped with fresh garlic butter and seasoned with Saltgrass-7 steak spice for mouthwatering flavor.

News release continued:
Saltgrass Steak House is committed to serving families the finest foods with legendary hospitality. Each morning, the restaurant bakes complimentary beer-bread, as well as homemade desserts from scratch. All soups and salad dressings are made in-house every day with the freshest ingredients, following family recipes that are over three decades old."
The Saltgrass name dates back to the mid-1800s, when cattle were driven to the Texas Gulf Coast to graze on the rich coastal salt grass. When they headed for market, they followed the legendary Saltgrass Trail. In 1952, this historic trail ride was revived to publicize the opening of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. The ride has become an annual celebration and the first Saltgrass Steak House still stands along this historic trail.
Diners are greeted with inviting interiors evoking the charm of a hill country home. The dining room features warm wood furnishings, comfortable leather seating, limestone and memorabilia from the Saltgrass Trail. Friends and families can come together in one of the private dining rooms, perfect for celebrations of any kind.
