Donna Visits Black Angus Steakhouse
As I entered the Black Angus Steakhouse in Torrance, I was greeted by an extremely pleasant hostess who showed me to my table. The Western-themed décor is always intriguing and for a short while makes me feel a “little bit” country. In the several visits I have made to Black Angus, Dean Turner the General Manager, is continually seen greeting guests or delivering food to tables.
“For the past 17 years, I have worked with great people who are friendly and who have outstanding character skills at this location. Everyone understands that it is all about our guests. Our servers will gather to sing happy birthday or happy anniversary to our guests, they will offer words of appreciation to guests who are dining and they will seek to make sure guests have a wonderful experience,” explained Turner.
Black Angus was founded by Stuart Anderson in 1964. In 1964, people lined up to get a steak, soup or salad and a baked potato for $2.99. At its peak, the restaurant chain had more than 120 outlets around the country. There are currently 46, most of them in California.
I was also interested to learn about the various promotional programs that Black Angus is currently offering. Dean explained that the New Zealand Rack of Lamb is aged a minimum of 45 days for deeper flavor and tenderness. It is marinated with freshly chopped garlic and rosemary seasoned and roasted to perfection. This dish is very popular right now. Also popular through June 18th, is “Gift Green, This Spring” which translates to $10 bonus bucks for every $50 spent on gift cards. Additionally, guests are encouraged to join the Prime Club by completing a short form placed on dining.
The Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce extends appreciation to Black Angus Steakhouse for being a valued member since 2002.
Black Angus Steakhouse is located in the Del Amo Fashion Center’s parking lot at 3405 W. Carson St, Torrance, CA 90503.
