When writing this list, there was no way we could overlook one of the best in the area. The Alamo Steakhouse has been voted “Best Steaks” for six years…and it’s no wonder why! This restaurant prides themselves in their aged, hand cut steaks. Cut and seasoned in house, Alamo then grills your steak over an oak fire to sear and seal in all of the natural juices and flavors. Just as this restaurant puts great care into creating the perfect steak, they also take pride in the rest of their food. All steaks come with a crisp dinner salad and your choice of a side, including fries, mac and cheese, a veggie of the day, and more.
Great barbeque and delicious steaks go hand in hand – at least, that’s what we’ve learned at Calhouns! This local favorite is known for its succulent barbeque but offers a variety of steaks and prime rib to satisfy the carnivore in you. Choose from filet mignon, prime rib roasted with hickory, marinated ale steak topped with Worcestershire butter or barbeque steak braised with their famous barbeque sauce. Each steak entrée is served with homemade mashed potatoes and one side, varying from baked cinnamon apples to Tennessee corn pudding, spinach maria and more. You can also add a skewer of shrimp to the steak entrée for an additional tasty treat!
