Hash browns are good for pushing through puddles of steak juice on the plate.

Before a meal of steak and potatoes, fried onion rings are the preferred hors d'oeuvre.

On a weekend night, you will wait for a table at this very popular palace of beef. If the Immediate Seating sign is lit, you're in luck!
