Best Steak in the U.S.

Slide 14 of 20

Kansas City, MO

When a steak is named after a city, like the Kansas City strip steak, you can bet that there’s a good reason behind it: Missouri has 2.16 million beef cows, only second to Texas, according to the Missouri Beef Council. In the 1940s, the Kansas City Stockyards were a major hub for farmers and ranchers selling cattle.

Where to Eat: The Golden Ox was founded in 1949 by Jay Dillingham, president and chairman of the Board of the Kansas City Stockyards, and is still one of the city’s most popular steak houses, serving three-week-aged Angus steaks, including a hickory-charcoal broiled Kansas City strip steak. Barbecue joint Fiorella’s Jack Stack specializes in classic smoked meats but also serves nontraditional barbecue items like hickory-grilled Kansas City strip steak.
