I'd say that there are at least 5 types of places that make a good steak - chicago style steak houses (and I am broadly throwing in all the american traditional places in that), italian grill places, brazilian steak places, argentinian steak places, and steak frittes places. and that is just in my expereince - you may add to that a few others. each is very different, and each has its own value.

if you think that an americna steak place doesn't serve a good steak then you're tastes are skewed.

I can dig that: asado casero

Although I would never admit agreeing with dkzzzz, I must say that I am a little tired of steakhouses always being the go-to choice for client dinners in my line of work. There seems to be a complete lack of imagination when taking clients out to dinner and a no-risk attitude that translates into ending up 90% of the time at Sparks, Del Frisco or the likes...

I actually find most farmers at the markets to be rather unappealing. I don't expect a sportscoat and tie but I also don't need to see the black dirt under your fingernails, I believe you are a farmer even without it. Can't stay away from the tomatoes though, I just can't stay away.

Horrible. Perfect for the American market. Tons of poorly cooked, poor quality meat that is indistinguishable from the next. And a huge salad bar. All for one price! The best dishes at these places are almsot always the sides and the pork dishes.

It's hard to get good falafel in a steakhouse.

Could not be more wrong. Although I've never been to one in the US, churrascarias are one of the most delicious experiences available to man.

I had my steak tonight seared medium rare, with nothing more than salt and pepper. Simple and delicious.

If you have never eaten in one in the US, how can you know that I am wrong about these shitholes in the US??

Do people really think the quality of beef they get from their local supermarket is even close to the one's used at top notch (not bad chains like the OP seems to frequent) steakhouses?

I actually went to one of the best steakhouses in Orlando this past week with family and my steak was absolutely fantastic. I usually get it medium rare or medium though. I'm not hardcore enough for rare. La Cantina (not actually a spanish place despite the name) on east colonial if any people in the area are interested. Family owned place and has been there for a long time.


I will agree though that the majority of chain steakhouses that are popular around here are terrible as far as steak quality and taste. Longhorn, texas roadhouse, roadhouse grill, etc... But the same goes with most popular chain restaurants.

Just...just..just...BECAUSE.

I have no idea, actually. Kneejerk reaction. Sorry.
