I can't really name one. I love them all! Very Happy

There used to be this Cajun place in Tahoe Vista that did a blackened prime rib that was just out of this world. I guess that gets my vote. Unfortunately it went under and is now called Spindleshanks.

Ruth's Chris - absolutely my favorite hands down. We go for our anniversary each year. Flemming's is good as well.

We had a gift certificate to Logan's Steakhouse and went the other night. I thought it would not be good - but the steaks were quite yummy - a little too fatty for my taste - but if you just cut that off, no problem. Plus the kids loved shelling the peanuts and throwing them on the floor...it would drive me nuts if we went too often but as a family outing - not bad at all.

Kagle's steaks in (actually, just outside of) Lubbock.

Best ribeyes I've ever had. I go back every time I'm in Lubbock.

Outback is a steakhouse in name only, but they do a good job and give a lot back to the community.

Last year my daughter's crew team and parents were treated to a Sunday meal by Outback to celebrate the end of the season. All free, just leave a good tip. They of course trained a few new employees and used a limited menu, but it was great. Recommended!

Also, Kreutz market in Lockhart, TX.

Smoked prime rib to die for.



Houston's, in Austin, TX. Great Hawaiian ribeye, and fantastic aged prime rib. And get the tortilla soup and salad w/ honey mustard dressing.

The North Star ... north of Topeka, Kansas, early 1991. I'm not exactly sure where it's at ... I may have been blindfolded to protect the secrecy of the location. It's a private club, and you must have a reservation to boot.

You enter and wait. The waiting room is as large as the dining room is small. Plenty of libations during your minimum 45 minute wait. The wait staff consisted of a couple of gentlemen who had worked at the place for 40 and 20+ years respectively. There are no menus. You have your choice of 5 main menu items. I usually ordered the Porterhouse. You tell the waiter what you want, how you want it cooked, what salad dressing you want (I recommend the homemade blue cheese), and what you want to drink. He writes nothing down, which is interesting when he goes around a table of up to 10 people. He later scribbles the orders down on a sheet of paper for the cook. The waiters never made mistakes. (I later learned the 40 year veteran was a vice-president of a large local bank. But he loved serving people. Pretty amazing, really.)

There are no steak knives. You do not need any. The steaks cut easily enough with a fork. They probably have steak sauce, but none is needed. They bring out platters of fries and bowls of gravy. This is not health food.

Best steak I've ever experienced.

I liked Johnny's in Omaha, right by the stockyards. But that was long, long ago. I remember the Chicago Stockyard Inn, but doubt I liked it better than Johnny's.
