Dallas Steakhouses Review

bjassin | Dec 6, 2006 05:57 PM

Ok..this message board has been EXTREMELY helpful to me, so I want to contribute my own PERSONAL opinion of a series of steakhouses I have recently visited around Dallas (over the past few months). Basically, I tend to order the same thing--either a porterhouse or a bone-in ribeye cooked 'medium-rare'.

III Forks - Horribly OVERRATED. Everytime I go I am dissappointed, so I will actually not EVER go anymore on my own--only if someone else invites me. The steaks are overcooked and the service is SLOW. I do like the touch of bringing the 'tomato and onions' tray--but it is too overpriced for what you get.

Chamberlains - Currently the TOP CHOICE on my list. Perfectly cooked steaks, great service, and nice ambiance.

Pappas Bros. - EXTREMELY good steak; perfectly cooked. Service is attentive, but a bit too 'formal'. I like the ambiance at Chamberlains better.

Capital Grill - Good steak, good ambiance. I can't find any fault with it, but I never seem to leave saying 'wow...that was AWESOME...'

Ruth's Chris - Shouldn't even be on the list. The absolute worst--both in terms of service and the food. They never seem to know how to really 'cook' a steak. In fact, I would rather go to Saltgrass than go here.

Saltgrass - EXTREMELY good for what I expected. I must say this place is just AWESOME. It is not a 'fancy' steakhouse by any means, but for the way they cook their steaks (a grill instead of a double broiler) and the flavor of the meat, it was WAY ABOVE what I expected.

Del Frisco's - not bad, but not GREAT either. It was just ok. Service was very good and steak was just 'alright.'

Smith & Wollesky - Not very impressed. Steak was ok, but again, nothing special. Service was slow.

Bob's (on Lemmon) - OUTSTANDING. Super steak and excellent service. I like the 'big carrot'. My wife doesn't like the place because she says it's 'too dark', but I would rate it right next to Chamberlain's.

Next on my list to visit: Al Bernait's and Y.O. Steakhouse.

I will post updates. I welcome any comments on what I said and any suggestions for any good steakhouses that I should visit.
