I loved, Spark's in NYC. Have never been to Peter Luger. Always wanted to, though. I'm sure, from what I know, it would probably be rated as my "number one".
My current favorite steakhouse is, "Twinwillow's" in Dallas.

I just saw your update on the 'Charlie's' group in Central Jersey. Thanks for giving me the rest of the story. You are right the Steaks were OK, in an era when there was a big step between the Ponderrosa type place and the Upper-end Special Steak place. The big-steak-chains like Outback and the Roadhouses have pretty much taken over the market share of places like 'Charlies".

I haven't been for a couple of years, but I've always liked The Winchester Room in North Versailes Pa (near Pittsburgh). While the steaks may not be on a par with places like the Angus Barn, or The Prime Rib, they are very high quality and (relatively) reasonably priced. Not far off the Irwin exit (Rt 30) of the Pa Turnpike.

Plus, it bills itself as "The Area's Official Stealhouse", though they don't say what the area is.

I'm sure I'm terribly gauche when it comes to steak, but the best I've ever had was at Taste of Texas (Houston). I've never been heavily into steak, though, and I appreciate the bacon wrap and garlic and such that I've had there. Every other steak I've had has been classified as "fine" in my book, but theirs is "whoa."

You know, it's funny, but I've always imagined it was a chain. Apparently, there's only one location.

Peter Luger's fan, here. I have sampled the best steaks Argentina has to offer, and they were indeed fantastic, but still fell shy of the porterhouse at Peter Luger's. If you go, you need to try the bacon as an appetizer, as well as their tomato and onion and their onion rolls. I cannot rave enough about the deliciousness of practically everything on that menu. For your viewing pleasure:




Thanks for the pic.

When in Naples,Fla. and feeling particularly carnivorous go to Andres on the "north trail"[Rte 41 N or Tamiami Trail]. He does things the Peter Lugar way. I think one of the Embers in Des Moines closed.

In the true spirit of Road Food, if you are ever near Hickory, NC you need to try the Charlois! It was fantastic!

Wow! I have been to Charleys Steakhouse on International Drive in Orlando, Florida, on numerous occasions, the best steaks I have ever had. They cook the steaks on a open pit with 3 types of wood oak , citrus and mesquite, great flavor. They have 12 oz. Filet and a 18 oz. bone in Filet, 50oz porterhouse, and a Kobe style bone in ribeye, make your mouth water. They also have a 2.5 inch thick bone in N.Y. Strip, very flavorful. Wine selections are plentiful from all regions of the world to accomadate ones palate. Server friendly staff in a very nice atmosphere, not too far from Disney and Universal, so if you love a great steak Charleys Steakhouse on International Drive is the place to dine.

Flames Steakhouse in Briarcliff Manor, New York
as good as any of the big name steakhouses in NYC, including Peter Luger and I've been to all of them as a life long NYC resident. I recently moved up to Westchester County (north of NYC) and this place saves me the schlep down to the city for prime steak. If your in the area try it and don't worry the prices are just as high as NYC so you'll feel just a poor after the meal.

I have eaten at many great steakhouses throughout our great country and around the world, many mentioned on this site, the best steaks I have ever had and long for again is at Jocko's in Napomo,Calif 9 miles north of Santa Maria,Calif.

Last Friday night I finally got to eat at the original Doe's Eat Place in Greenville Mississippi. I split a two and a half-pound porterhouse with a fellow roadfooder, and this steak was, without a doubt, the most wonderful slab of meat I've ever tasted. The flavor was simply incredible, and the char-crust was perfection. The porterhouse was sitting in a pool of its' own delicious beef juices, which were just the thing for dipping Doe's superior hand-cut french fries in. For years I've wondered if Doe's steaks could possibly live up to their lofty reputation - I'm happy to say that they do.

 I second Bob's comment about Doe's Eat Place in Greenville, MS. The beef was outstanding.

  Then I will add a step up from there to the Doe's in Paducah, KY. It is not common to have the offspring of the original owner of a place make improvements on the original, but that's what has happened in the 'Doe's Family'. The Paducah store is run by the Greenville Store owners son. The Beef is every bit as good, plus they have a Lunch menu, much more room and a location in a historic district in Paducah, and serve the 'total dinner' for one price, as opposed to the 'Ala Carte' arrangement where the salad/soup and other items are billed seperately.

  Yes put me down for endorsing  "Doe's Eat Place" TWICE, with Paducah heading the List !
 
  Here is our dinner at the Paducah,KY Doe's-
   Grilled Shrimp with veggies for Janet and a large Ribeye Steak with French Fried Potato for me (with an appetizer order of Grilled Shrimp to share). Also some Garlic Toast for the two of us , as well !

 
BTW- My ribeye, with Potato, Bread and Coke to drink was $32. The Appetizer Shrimp was $10 and change. Janet's Shrimp dinner with Veggies, and Bread and coffee was $9.95 (off the lunch menu!)
  They did have a 10 oz NY Strip with the sides on the Lunch Menu for $12 also!
 
Added 2/19-
Here is a shot of TTM's Porterhouse with one of my Shrimp as a garnish. It too, was a piece of Art as well as a great cut of Beef!

I added one of TTM's photos to the Doe's comment above. I have been to some of the best Beef Houses in the country ('cept peter Lugars!) and so far Doe's in Paducah and also in Greenville are head and shoulders above them all! (Mortons,Ruth/Chris,Lawry's don't come close!! IMHO)

Al, I've eaten at the famed Chicago Chop House twice, and I thought THAT was a helluva steak. But now that I've eaten at Doe's.... well, there's just no equal. Doe's makes a Chop House steak taste like one from Ponderosa by comparison ( ouch!!! )

Lewnes in Annapolis, MD

Its not huge.  You might see people in there in Tux's and in the next booth people in shorts and T-shirts.  It started as a lunch counter that used to use only 4-H raised beef but in the early 90s converted to the best pace for steak (and great crab cakes) that I have ever been.  There's a Ruth's Chris a block away and I would always choose Lewnes over Ruth's Chris.

My dad grew up with Nick and Buzz BeLar whoc owned the Prime Rib in Baltimore (and DC and Philly) which until Lewnes was my favorite steak.  But dad told me he thought Lewnes was better but made me promise not to tell Buzz.

You won't be disappointed.

The Prime Cut 2nd Ave Nashville TN

They would bring a cart to your table and cut the steak in front of you. Man was it good. They closed several years ago and I still miss it

One of my faves is Hyde Park Steak House, a small chain primarily around NE Ohio, but a couple in FL as well.  IMO these guys consistently outperform the better known steakeries like Morton's, etc.

Metropolitan, Seattle.

I set the bar high, and they exceeded my expectations.


I would agree with this assessment of the Met. They now have both American Kobe and true imported Japanese Kobe beef (at astronomical prices, of course.) Last January, I had the "long bone" American Kobe bone-in rib-eye (about 30 ounces) which was a truly outstanding steak. It was pricey, to be sure, but worth it for a special occasion.

In Seattle, El Gaucho runs neck and neck with the Met, in my opinion, as the ultimate carnivores' destination.

At two ends of the spectrum, but two fine steakhouses...The Oak Steakhouse in Charleston, SC & The Beefmaster Inn in Wilson, NC.

Now...Peter Lugar's.  If the picture below is the best this "icon" can produce, they don't deserve to be on anyone's list.  For the money you drop there you at least deserve a clean plate.  Absolutely shameful presentation.  I wouldn't expect a plate that dirty at the local greasy spoon.  I'm utterly shocked.
