Longhorn Steakburger is leaving its home on East 22nd Street for new digs on East Tanque Verde Road.

The 16-year-old family-owned restaurant expects to close its doors at 9431 E. 22nd St. on June 1 and move into its larger building at 8995 E. Tanque Verde Road a couple weeks later, said manager Angie Lamoreaux.

Lamoreaux said the new building, once home to a Chuys restaurant, will seat about 150 people, compared with the 88 seats at the current location.

David Ogle opened Longhorn Steakburger — not to be confused with the national LongHorn Steakhouse chain — in 1998 on Speedway and Kolb Road as the Great American Cattle Co. A divorce several years ago led to the name change.

The restaurant has been at its current location since 2004.

LongHorn Steakhouse is building a 6,200-square-foot restaurant at 5725 E. Broadway. Construction is ongoing, and no opening date has been set.

Lamoreaux said she fields five or 10 calls a day from people mistaking Longhorn Steakburger with LongHorn Steakhouse. The two restaurants are not affiliated.
