What and where is the best steak you've ever eaten (not home-cooked)

Mine a medium or medium rare Cowboy Steak (18oz Rib-eye on the bone) from Robert's Steakhouse in Flatonia, Texas

DPeacher and Texrdnec pecan smoked some on a pit at my ranch.

Best ever. Anywhere. Period.





ETA Damn, I didn't see the not home cooked stipulation.

Best in a restaraunt was at a place little hole in the wall Mexican food joint in George West, Texas. The place had 4 tables total. I had a 12 ounce ribeye that was as good as restaraunt steak can be. It rivaled (but not beat) home made.

Second best was an Axis steak at a very upscale place in Houston. Axis cooked rare, I was damned impressed.

You easily just ruled out the top 10 steaks I've ever had.

I'm not sure.....none of the best were at restaurants.

Some of the best were cooked at hunting camps.

Prior to that, I'd over-season and over-cook the steak if I was making myself, and I'd tolerate bad cuts and poorly-cooked steaks at restaurants. Since then, I season only with salt and pepper, and if I order medium-rare and it comes out wrong, I send it back. I'm fortunate to have a few friends in the restaurant business, and I know where to get a properly-cooked steak if I'm too lazy to make one myself.

Does Prime Rib count?
Link Posted: 9/6/2010 8:02:31 PM EDT
Probably this huge NY strip that I made a month or two back. Dusted it real good, and broiled it perfect. It was just plain mouth watering good. I couldn't believe how good it was. It was like 1lb+, and I just wanted so bad for there to be more of it.


I really don't ever get steak when I go out. I just can't trust that they'd do it right, and I'd be pissed if it was wrong when I paid $20-30 for it.

I've seen those restaurants sometimes while traveling? How are the rest of the offerings? OK prices or expensive?

My best steak ever was out at a restaurant one night. The steak itself was pretty good but the company I had that evening is what made it the best.

Sometimes the social part of the dining experience is as important if not more important than the food you're eating.

Wouldn't say it was THE best, but the Jack Daniel's steaks at TGIFs are pretty fucking good.

~$20 a plate. The dishes tend to be well prepared for the price. Nothing fancy, just good food.

We've got them in OK. They are a tier above Texas Roadhouse/Outback, but a few notches below Ruth Chris.

A good ribeye is probably around $18 and a small filet $25.

Little dive restaurant in Tehachapi, CA back in the early 80s had one of the best NY strips I've ever had.

Local place here in Albany, OR called The Buzzsaw that has since gone out of business.

A couple of years ago at Payton's Roundhouse in Chicago I had a Ribeye that was the best steak I've ever had.

Another out of the way place (but great) is The Hitching Post, in Casmalia, California.

Restaurant at the top of the Stratosphere tower in Las Vegas. Wife and I were there for our anniversary and got the surf and turf - I recall specifically that the menu said the filet had some sort of leek sauce on it and I thought to myself 'WTF is a leek'?

Long story short, that was absolutely, hands down the best steak I have ever eaten - the leek sauce was a complement to a beautiful cut that was cooked perfectly. I consider that my 'holy grail' of steaks because it was a quasi-religious experience for me; I actually got teary in one eye when I took the first bite. We went back several times, but each time was less like the first, until we just stopped going. I continue to look for something to live up to that standard but as of yet I'm still looking.

Ruth's Chris across from the harbor in San Diego for special occassions.

Steer 'n Stein around the corner from my house for the best quality local steak.

It was a rib eye purchased from walmart believe it or not. Grilled medium rare, it was the most tender, juicy steak I have had to this day.
Link Posted: 9/6/2010 8:31:01 PM EDT
Okay.

The best ever? Not really at my house here so check this thread on it.

Open Fire Steak

The best I ever had at a paid for eatery was a ribeye at Love and War in Texas. The location was in Dallas.

I am hard to impress.

Abe & Louie's (Boston) bone-in filet mignon, medium rare. And I've eaten at MANY top-line steakhouses around the country.

Try Cattlemen's Cafe in OKC. Best steak you will find anywhere.

Pacific Dining Car (Los Angeles).

Filet mignon (rare).

Medium rare rib-eye at The Fox and Hounds.

May have been in Boston. West on Center is the place, in Roxberry(sp?)

The best resturaunt steak I ever had was at a dive in downtown Redding , CA called Jack's Grill. Place was a total dump, but I had a New York there that was out of this world. I've eaten at a couple Ruth's Chris locations, and a Smith & Wollensky's, and while they were very good, they did not hold a candle to this Jack's joint in Redding. It was cheap too. Four of us ate and had a couple rounds of cocktails for like $120 or $130. I don't know if they always are that good, but one of the guys I ate with goes there often and says it was about par for them. I'll be going there again any time I happen to find myself in Redding.

But of course my favorites are always home grilled done just my way.

price was ok, $25 for the strip/potatoes/and soup.. good food for the price. and they had a good selection to choose from.

my friend wanted to go the another Steak place called Logan's Roadhouse, but it was to far from where we were headed, so we just stopped at Saltgrass.

anyone been to a Logan's Roadhouse?

If it has to be a steak eaten out, it was a bone-in filet at the N9ne steakhouse at The Palms in Vegas. One of the best steaks I have ever had.

A close second is the NY strip at Cattlemen's in OKC. I figure if it's good enough for GW Bush senior, it should be fine for me. Outfreakinstanding steak.

Amen. I cook my steaks how I like them. I've had good steaks at restaurants and cooked by other people, but I can't remember any as good as I can make them.

Since we're limiting to non-home cooked food...

Stateside - Sam Seltzer's Steakhouse, Tampa Florida. Early 90's. Can't remember the cut. Best tasting juiciest restaurant steak I've had.

Overseas - "Steak" on the menu at various small restaurants in Athens (Glyfada Square area) and Iraklion, Crete. 80's and early 90's. Large, thick and juicy. Best "French Fries" I've ever had as well - order a "side of fries" and you received a full dinner plate of fries next to your meal. (Souvlaki was good as well, and the souvlaki pitas made excellent finger food for munchies between bars.)
