The BEST steak, anywhere!

We shared the two-and-a-half-pound porterhouse ($52 with fries included), a salad ($4), garlic bread ($1.50), six tamales ($8), two beers, and a can of Coke for a total of $79 plus tip. We ordered our porterhouse rare-plus, and that's exactly how it came out. It was bursting with flavor, and we dived right into it. The fries (included with the steak price) are freshly-fried, crispy on the outside and just right inside.

The salad is lemony and luscious with olive oil and tomato bits. We now have a challenge to duplicate it at home. Yes, we know we will fail. The garlic bread (three slices which we fought over) is buttery, crispy and perfect. We'd order everything again, except for the appetizer tamales (which were unexceptional and filled us a bit too much before dinner). We'll try the shrimp next time.

Be sure, if your budget is tight, to ask the price of everything; there's no printed menu. The waitress tells you what kinds of steaks there are, then offers side dishes in an off-handed way, with no prices. Knowing you're in for a treat, you either roll with the flow or keep track of what you're spending. Either way, you'll leave HAPPY!

Hot from the skillet, French fries are tossed onto a grate next to the stove in the middle of Doe's dining room.

Served in a sauce made with lemon, butter, garlic, and Cajun spices, broiled shrimp are an excellent way to start your meal.

Doe's sells its homemade tamales 'to go': three dozen per coffee can.

Decor at Doe's! This old taxidermized bird was hovering above our table. That's cotton spilling out of splits in its noggin'.

Nelson Street, where Doe's is located, once was known as the bad part of town. Now, it's a culinary destination. The man standing behind the pickup truck is Doe's private security guard. Note the six-gun on his hip.
