    If you ever get to Bakersfield, you have got to try the chicken fried steak at Buck Owens' Crystal Palace. The steak comes on it's own plate, the green beans and taters come on another. Good old down home eatin. After you eat, sit back and enjoy some good Bakersfield honky-tonk country music. Buck's son Buddy and the Buckaroos play on weekends.

    There is a place in Texas that I saw on TV. that has I think a 56oz. Slab of beef baked potato and some other stuff too that if you can finish it in a certain time its free and you get your name up on the wall. You better bring an asprin or two because it looks like a heart attack looking for a place to happen. If I ever go to Texas I want to go to that place just to see that slab of beef.

    The absolute best steak is is PETER LUGER in Brooklyn, NY---you better make sure your not close to the limit on your credit card or bring a shoe box full of money. I'm told there is or was a six moth wait for reservations (the economy may have made things easier),

    Porterhouse is my favorite steak. My favorite place to get it is a custom butcher shop, take it home and fix it extra rare

    You guys are lucky. Everytime I think I've found a good place, I go back and get stung. Must be the reason they ask, "Have you ever eaten here before?". (always answer no?)

    If you're the Mpls area, Manny's or Murray's are tough to beat. Expect to pay about the cost of 12 practice rounds for a steak at either place. As others have said, I still prefer to cook my own on the Weber.

    One of the first places in the country with the "Free 72 oz sirloin" offers in the country was the Old Country Kitchen in Portland, Oregon, on Stark Street and 104th or so. My Mom used to work there back in the 1950s. I have not eaten there since the 1970s, but it used to have awesome steaks, particularly the T-bones and Porterhouses. They were great with a baked potato and a side of onion rings. The restaurant is still there, but I'm sure that the original owners are not. They were two or three brothers named Saylor, and would be pushing 100 by now.

    Rosewood Grille, on the strip in Las Vegas, Nevada ... Its a true 5 star place and the food is out of this world, the prices reflect just how good it is but its worth it ... I had a 3 1/2 pound Lobster there and it was $72.00 but well worth it ... I go there everytime I'm in Las Vegas ... WPT ... (YAC) ...

    There's a place called Benton Lee's on the edge of the Altahama River near Baxley Ga which serves some really good steaks. Your steak will hang off both ends of your platter(a plate won't hold it) and has just enough room on the side for your potato or whatever you choose as a side. They offer sweet potatoe, fries etc. but the salad is very small. They come in three sizes(thicknesses) and I can just bearly eat a small when I am super hungry. Prices are ninteen, twentythree and twentyeight. I've never seen anyone finish the twentyeight. They also have a house steak which I think is 64 oz which they offer if you can eat it all it's free.

    My own Ribeye steaks are the best I have ever eaten. Perhaps, because they are grilled to my perfection. Nothing else compares. However, Ruth Crists if you have to eat out.

    i am near to having an "EATING FRENZY" after hearing about all these places. i can not take my wife to a place that offers a 72 ounce steak, because if i ordered it, i would never hear the end of it. i am a fat ass with high blood pressure. last steak i had was 2 years ago. i took my friend luther with me and we ate and drank like henry the V111. in the 80's luther and I went to a nice resturant at the grand in vandalia. it had a large outdoor wooden area where you could wait to be seated, very near to the grand complex. anyone know the name? here is my last meal if i was ever on death row.
    porterhouse steak (enormo size)
    crab legs and plenty of them, with melted butter
    lobster- size that if you were swiming, you would be afraid of him and get out of the water. mushrooms big and juicy with lots of better. antiposto salad, for desert, vienna tourte. after i ate all this, the warden would not need to pull the lever. p.s. lots of beer, with frozean glasses, and the beer around 40 degrees. with this meal you would get a coupon for a free angio plasty.

    Latest place I've eaten was Remingtons in Wesley Chapel, FL. They had a sirloin that was as tender as a tenderloin and tasty to boot! HarryC
