Best Steak in the U.S.

Slide 10 of 20


According to Forbes magazine, Dallas is home to 17 billionaires, who have a combined estimated worth of $45.7 billion—such wealth engenders a serious power lunch scene at Fearing’s and more of the city’s many steak houses. Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House and Bob’s Steak and Chop House are two popular chains that originated in Dallas and now have locations across the country.

Where to Eat: At Fearing’s, the legendary cowboy-boot-wearing chef Dean Fearing serves mesquite-grilled bone-in rib eye with vinegary West Texas “mop” sauce, creamy corn bread pudding and tempura asparagus. Smoke chef-owner Tim Byres (F&W People’s Best New Chef 2012) has a backyard smokehouse for slow-cooking all kinds of meat, including strip steak, an incredible coffee-cured beef brisket and “The Big Rib,” a huge beef rib.
