A Grill Master from a local LongHorn Steakhouse restaurant in St. Petersburg, Emilio Burgos, was surprised with a grand celebration for grilling one million steaks for the restaurant.
He’s one of only a few team members nationwide who have achieved this great milestone, according to a release.
Burgos, who has worked for LongHorn Steakhouse for more than two decades, was honored with a surprise celebration at the restaurant located at 2400 Tyrone Blvd. North in St. Petersburg.
There, his co-workers, friends, and family watched as LongHorn Steakhouse executives presented him with a $5,000 check, a special gold chef coat, reminiscent of the one presented to Pro Football Hall of Fame inductees, and several other commemorative mementos.
Reaching the historic milestone earns him the title of “Grill Master Legend,” making him one of only a dozen people to receive the prestigious distinction from the national restaurant chain, a testament to his hard work and commitment.
Nice work Emilio and congrats!
