In early March residents of Carrollton should prepare their palates as they won’t be needing to journey to Rome, Meriwether, or Atlanta anymore for a first-rate steakhouse.
Donelle Crawford has just signed a lease for her new restaurant, Carrollton Chophouse. “After thirty years of being in the restaurant business, it has always been in the back of my mind.… People get focused on money and everything else, and it’s not about that – it’s about the way you treat people and the experience you give people.” Donelle’s most recent steakhouse stay was at Brothers in Villa Rica since their opening in 2019.
Donelle hopes to bring customers a different, more personal type of experience and describes the restaurant as “upscale with a little bit of a country backwoods feel.” The restaurant will not only aim to use organic and locally-sourced produce but also cater to different nutritional needs, including gluten-free.
Main entrees will include steak, salmon, pork chops, ribs, hamburgers, wings, pasta, and shrimp and grits. Side items will range from fire-roasted corn, collard greens, and asparagus, but customers can look forward to “a little bit of everything,” said Donelle. An inhouse pastry chef will whip up in-house desserts including creme brulee and peanut butter pies.
Guests can look forward to seating options with the opportunity to watch as the grill master cooks their entreés on an open hickory fire. The Carrollton Chophouse menu will be crafted by experienced sous chefs from the Metro-Atlanta and Carrollton area, bringing to the table recipes crafted through generations.
Carrollton Chophouse plans on offering guests “very good food at a very good price.” Donelle adds, “Well – believe me – after they taste their steaks, they won’t have to drive very far.”
Look for Carrollton Chophouse on Rome Street where Little Hawaiian was before it relocated to Cedar Street a few years ago.
