# 2: Pappas Bros., Dallas, TX
The tender baked steak cooked the way you like it? Classic sides? An extensive wine list? You get all the things you love to eat at an old grill at Pappas Bros. Established in 1976, the grill is considered one of the best restaurants in Dallas. The price range is a little high, above $ 61, but the food and wine make the cost more than worth it. If you are looking for exquisitely marbled meat that has been internally aged and cooked to perfection, then you should head to Dallas.
# 3: Peter Luger Steak House, Brooklyn, NY
When it comes to old-school steakhouses, Peter Luger tops the list. Open since 1887, this century-old restaurant has been recognized as New York's best steakhouse for at least 28 years. The old-fashioned charm of this brewery-style restaurant with its worn wooden furniture and bow-tie waiters has been copied by other steakhouses far and wide. But nothing beats the original. If you're nearby, be sure to try the two-person porterhouse with sizzling bacon (next door). It is a unique experience that will accompany you throughout your life. Please note this grill is a cash only establishment!
# 4: St. Elmo’s Steakhouse, Indianapolis, IN
Established in 1902, this steakhouse is considered a landmark in downtown Indianapolis. And with very good reason. This is the place where deals are closed and celebrations are held. The restaurant is old-school (lots of brass and dark wood), serving great cuts of premium meat (complete with all sides) at a very affordable price ($ 31- $ 60). Don't forget to try the spicy shrimp cocktail! You have never tried something like this.
# 5: Keens Steakhouse, New York, NY
Another bastion of excellence in the world of beef. Open since 1885, Keens started as a tube club with more than 90,000 members, including Teddy Roosevelt, JP Morgan, and Babe Ruth. Today, it is a historic steakhouse that has consistently served superior steak and lamb (the famous mutton saddle). Thick wood paneling, a collection of smoking pipes on the ceiling, a few pictures of hunting scenes hanging on the walls, and waiters in long white aprons all help create the old-school vibe. Prices may be a little high, but portions are large enough to share.
# 6: Mooo, Boston, MA
A very modern steakhouse serving classic and creative dishes to satisfy a variety of palates. You can choose from a variety of premium steak options, from grass-fed local beef to Japanese Wagyu (which definitely melts in your mouth). Appetizers and side dishes are creative and tasty (wagyu meat dumplings are a must). Mooo is definitely expensive, with the steaks ranging from $ 38 to $ 160, but it's worth it.
# 7: Bern’s Steakhouse, Tampa, FL
Since 1956, Bern’s Steakhouse has been recognized as a meat mecca. Each steak is cut and roasted to order, which means they personalize their food based on what you want, not what they think you want. The menu (all 16 pages of it) has full notes on grill temperature, sauces, and toppings to help you pick your idea of heaven on steak. And the wine list is nothing to scoff at either. Of course, a trip to Bern will not be complete without going through the upstairs bedroom, Harry Waugh's Dessert Room. While you definitely visit Bern & # 39; s for meat, dessert will be the icing on your meal.
# 8: Cattleman & # 39; s Steakhouse, Oklahoma, OK
Since the early 1900s, Cattleman & # 39; s Steakhouse is a simple restaurant. that's all about beef (as the name already suggests). Beef fed locally sourced corn that is aged internally (the process is a well-kept secret) is cooked to perfection, juicy and tender, and served with classic accompaniments (bread, salad, baked potato). A must see are the lamb fries (which are really testicles) that taste out of this world. The price range is quite reasonable, $ 11- $ 30. Don't forget to end your meal with a homemade cream pie!
# 9: Barclay Prime, Philadelphia, PA
Described as a "luxury boutique steakhouse," Barclay Prime is a slightly modern take on the classic steakhouse. . While dark wood paneling is still present, red leather seats are replaced by green and yellow suede, and there are a number of shiny chandeliers. Also, the music is a little clubby. Despite the contemporary look, the food is all old school. You'll get a variety of meat options, from premium beef aged for 40 days to Japanese A5 Wagyu and Tomahawk Ribeye. Once the steak is ready, guests are asked to choose their own steak knife from a collection of knives. Barclay Prime is expensive (around $ 50 to $ 70) and will probably poke a hole in your wallet. But you will never notice the burn. That is how good it is.
# 10: Craftsteak, Las Vegas, NV
Tom Colicchio's Craftsteak is definitely a steakhouse with its selection of Angus, American and Japanese Wagyu steak, ribeye steak, and braised ribs. But it is also much more than a grill. It also has a selection of chicken and seafood dishes that are a must. Free-range chicken and lobster come to mind. The wine selection is extensive and so are the Bourbon and Scotch labels available. The portions are huge that you can choose to share. Try the Mashed Potatoes and the risotto as side dishes. You will not regret.
