Fierofetish raised this question in another thread, and it seemed to me that an important subject like this deserved its own thread.
So where do YOU go for steaks, and what does a decent (or exceptional) steak cost where you live?
We have LOTS of chain stores here in tourist world. Outback was born just a few miles away in Tampa. Longhorn is pretty good and reasonably priced (dinner is around $15). Sam Selttzers http://www.orlandoweekly.com/dining/place.asp?id=4063 has volume priced beef, pretty good, and very affordable at $10-15 for a dinner. Then there is Ruth's Chris Steakhouse, with a la carte (sides are extra) starting at around $32.

MY personal favorite is a porterhouse with a bit of chopped rosemary and fresh ground pepper cooked medium rare over an oak fire at Casa de NEPTUNE, around $7.00, plus potato, veg, salad and wine.
And what'sYOUR fave place for cowmeat?

Outback and T-Bones are both good for cow. Just don't get to go that often.

here in KC a steak or bbq rest is on every corner (lot lot mc donalds). Hereford house and Plaza 3 have great steaks and atmosphere. Jess and Jim's, Lidia's, then all the chain rests. all good eats.

best steak i've had is at hereford house here in kc and delmonico's in las vegas. i used to be big on kc/ny strips but lately a like a fatter cut. like a ribeye or porterhouse.

i have to agree the place i eat the most steak is my back deck and bbq grill.

Outback doesn't do a thing for me. The few times I've eaten there, the food has been tough and the service was kwrappy. Never bothered to go back.
I like Longhorn. There are also the Texas Roadhouse and the Alpine Steakhouse.

The Angus Barn is one of the premiere restaurants on the East Coast, and has probably the single largest wine list between New York City and Tampa FL.
Some of the best Prime Rib I've ever had, and just about any kind of wine you could imagine. The wine list is 82 pages long!

But that's too expensive for regular dining, so my mainstay would be Blinco's Restuarant. On Friday and Saturday, they have a Prime Rib special for about $20 that's about the best bang for your buck you can get. It's like a Flintsones Brontosaurus steak - upwards of 2 pounds, maybe more, and barely fits on a dinner platter, with all the trimmings.

Ok, now I've got a craving for steak. Good job.

Me? I don't like steak all that much. Don't get me wrong, I'll eat it. But I prefer my beef grounded for hamburgers.

ya know, interesting topic.

after watching Good Eats one night i decided to make my own ground sirloin. took a steak, cut it into one inch or so cuts, threw it into the food processor and made my own steak burger. it turned out very well. a little too chewy for the wife but i'm sure a few more seconds in the processor would solve that. that flavor is awsome. real steak burger....ummm.

I like meat!

We always get our beef from the butcher store down the road. They know us (especially Tom) by heart and they are so happy to see him when he is home. He walks in and gets them to cut him a steak right off the hanging meat. He always gets them to cut him a couple of 1 1/2 - 2 inch chunk of whatever steak he's hungry for. (I usually eat about 1/3 of mine and give him the rest) Yummy! The best and least expensive steak is right from the butcher shop, and cooked on your own grill.

You can't get a good cut of beef in NC. There are no butcher shops and the stores carry crappy beef. (at least around the Fayettenam area) Sometimes when I go to visit Tom, I'll get a few steaks from the butchers and pack them in ice and away I go. Talk about appreciation!

I think the best is Morton's of Chicago, in Cleveland. Not unusual to spend $60.00 per person, but worth it!

If you eat out you are buying processed meat, if you buy it at a butcher or raise the beef yourself you will see the difference.

Beef is not red, it’s brown when it’s fresh. The stuff you buy at the grocery store it is not fresh, hell half the time it has been in the store so long that they have to die it to make it look edible.

My favorite cut, Sirloin burnt to a crisp.

Sorry I like my meat well done, if I wanted blood on my plate I’d got out and shoot it myself and eat it raw.

Dining out, the Black Magic Steak from Bugaboo Creek Steak House.

Dining in, it was the Filet Mignon from Omaha Steaks, on the grill for five minutes each side, then twenty up on the rack for a perfect medium. Now, Hannaford's market (MA, NH, ME) has a meat section with huge cuts like I've never seen from our other locals (Shaws and Stop & Shop). Still exploring(!)

OK, Listen up.....................

Here in Russell, KS, we have a Restaurant named "Meridy's". A lady that graduated HS with me owns it and has been running it for about 15 years or so. Any time I have someone stop by, I take them there for a steak (or we cook for them here, one or the other). EVERY time, without fail, people have said they served the best steaks they've ever had, anywhere. I've had friends in from North Carolina and South Africa, New York and Florida, all over the midwest, Alaska, California, Nevada, you name it. I have one friend that has called me and said "Hey, John, I'm kind of coming through there tonight, wanna go to Meridy's for a steak?". Sure, Bill, where are you? "I'm in my P210 and on my way to New Orleans, I can be there in about 90 minutes." Uh, Bill, Russell isn't anywhere near your flightpath from Vegas to New Orleans. "Just let me worry about the details".



Seriously, I love steak. I eat it a lot when we go out. I've never, ever had any that can compare to the ones I can get 15 miles away from me. They are, that good.

Do you hunt down and kill your cow with your stake?



Besides, if we weren't supposed to eat animals, why are they made of meat?

If we got out for steak we go to Ryans. Its a all yo can eat bufett for $10 you can have as much steak and other foods as you want. They serve ribeyes cooked how you want it. Most of the time we grill steak on the back porch though even in the winter. I make a great marinade out of JD whisky

Going out to eat is always nice.....BUT, the steaks are always so much better at home, regardless of what cut of meat it is. Buy it on sale....trim it yourself, marinade and season it. Then throw it on the grill. I like mine pinkish .

My 2 favorites are Filet Mignon or Prime Rib. Both would be cooked Med. Rare for me. We go to Teas Roadhouse, Lonestar or Logans most times when the whole family goes out for steak. Every once in a blue moon (like never) we get a night out just the 2 of us. If we go for steak there is a local place in our area called Sibley Gardens. They have incredible steaks. We also have enjoyed Carl's Chophouse in Detroit.

I like steak too, but I have agree that I like Prime Rib better. Just a matter of taste I guess.

Edit, my favour steak is pepper steak.
