Changes from place to place. I generally don't order steak, though. I think that nicer restaurants do a lot more interesting food than the steak w/ sauce, starch, and veg standby. That said, for myself, I buy ribeye and sirloin. If I'm cooking for multiple people, I'll get a whole flank steak. If I go somewhere and there's Wagyu or Kobe, I'll order it regardless of cut. I had a kobe skirt once that was out of this world. Perfectly cooked, great accompaniments, great wine pairing, it was just a really great dish. After eating there, I applied for a job and am currently working there three nights a week
