Logan's Roadhouse is a chain of restaurants that was founded in 1991 in Lexington, Kentucky, USA[1] and in 1999 became a wholly owned subsidiary of the publicly held CBRL Group, Inc (which also owns Cracker Barrel). On December 6, 2006, CBRL Group sold Logan's Roadhouse to affiliates of Bruckmann, Rosser, Sherrill & Co., Canyon Capital Advisors LLC, and Black Canyon Capital LLC for $486 million. In 2010, private equity firm Kelso & Company acquired the company. Its main office is located in Nashville, Tennessee. There are over 210 company operated and 26 franchised Logan's Roadhouse locations throughout 23 states and growing.[year missing]

The chain uses retro style decorations, and provides free buckets of peanuts that come at each table. Some of the Logan's establishments have locality-inspired decor and artwork. For example, Detroit area Logan's have murals of people wearing Detroit Pistons shirts.

On February 20, 2013, Mike Andres, a former McDonald's vice-president and former CEO of Boston Market, replaced Tom Vogel as CEO.[citation needed]

Menu[edit]

The chain's menu includes mesquite-grilled steaks, traditional American fare (sandwiches, soup, salads, and seafood), ice-cold longneck beer, homemade yeast rolls, and unlimited buckets of in-shell peanuts.

Logan's serves appetizers, steak, and hamburgers, and offers side dishes such as salad, french fries, and baked potatoes.
