What does it take to grill one million steaks? Clearwater resident and LongHorn Steakhouse Grill Master Conrado Silva Santos has the recipe. He is now among the elite class of only 14 Grill Masters ever to be celebrated as one of LongHorn Steakhouse’s Grill Master Legends, a special distinction bestowed only upon those who have achieved this sizzling accomplishment.
As part of LongHorn’s commitment to quality, every restaurant has a team of expert Grill Masters specially trained in the art of grilling. They are in-house specialists on selecting the right cut of fresh, never frozen steak, boldly seasoning with one of the restaurant’s proprietary spice blends and grilling to each guest’s taste. Only the best become LongHorn’s Grill Masters.
After serving as a Grill Master for 24 years, Conrado has grilled one million steaks, marking him as a true master of his craft. To celebrate their achievement, he was surprised by his restaurant team, his family and restaurant-wide leaders with a special event recognizing him as a Grill Master Legend. He received a special gold chef coat, a $5,000 award and a visit from LongHorn Steakhouse president Todd Burrowes.
