BEACON PHOTO/AL EVERSON RESTAURANT RECYCLING — This former Ruby Tuesday location at 1212 Saxon Blvd. in Orange City will be redeveloped as a LongHorn Steakhouse, according to Orange City officials. No dates have been announced for the remodeling or reopening. Neighboring buildings to the east and west also have been repurposed by restaurant chains after closing.

Another new restaurant is coming to Orange City. LongHorn Steakhouse is planning to set up shop in the building formerly occupied by Ruby Tuesday at 1212 Saxon Blvd., according to the Orange City Development Services Department. 

LongHorn Steakhouse is part of the Darden group of restaurant chains, which includes Olive Garden and Red Lobster. The chain is headquartered in Orlando.

Dates for beginning renovation of the restaurant, and for a possible opening have not been announced. 

The former Ruby Tuesday building sits between two other restaurants along busy Saxon Boulevard. Both of the neighboring restaurants were closed by their original owners and repurposed by other food purveyors. 

Fazoli’s, to the west, was closed in 2010 to make way for Five Guys Burgers and Fries, and Bob Evans, to the east of the future Ruby Tuesday, closed and sat vacant until it reopened as Colt’s Pig Stand.
