“We identified Dover and the Capital Commons shopping center as a great place to open a new restaurant, with long-term growth potential,” said managing partner Ray Nash. “We’ve received outstanding support from the community, and are looking forward to getting to know each of our guests. We’re very happy to be opening the second LongHorn Steakhouse in the state of Delaware right here in Dover.”
