Wifey and I go to Ruth's Chris for dinner once a year, on New Year's Eve.

The food is delicious, the service impeccable, and none of those pesky 47%-ers whining about how "life isn't fair".

I find meals much more enjoyable when I'm not surrounded by the hoi polloi.

Been there twice ever. 14 years apart. Shared a porterhouse with my wife both times. They tied for the best steaks ever in my life. Had many other high dollar steaks and these won hands down.

Sounds like a great evening, happy new year. I do not thin I have ever had anything less than wonderful service or food at Ruth's Chris or at Capital Grill. I wish I could go more often.

But Ruth's Chris has like 13 times more restaurant locations so they are a bit easier to find.

Ruth's is a safe bet wherever you are. Are there better? Sure. But not by much.

OP - glad you had a great time. Ruth's story is a great one.

Big veggies from my experience at RC. if you go out with a date, you only need to buy 1 potatoe or plate of broccoli.

Beats out a lot of the bigger steakhouse like Magnus, but its not the best steakhouse by a long shot.

Ruth's Chris is great!! For anyone who has never been, just dont do what I did on my first trip-- i tried to move my plate a few inches after the waiter sat it down in front of me. That plate must have been 400 degrees! :wow: I won't make that mistake again. But I loved the food well enough I have been back several times and hope to go again this year. :eat:

The closest RC's to us is about an hour's drive away as is the nearest Capitol Grille.
We've been to both and I think I prefer RC's but I'd definitely eat at either one again.

However, we have a bar/restaurant within 2 miles of our house that has a prime rib on Saturday's that I'd just as soon have as the steak at RC's or the Capitol Grille and it's at least 50% cheaper.

That sounds great right now. I've been in the mood for a good steak. In Fort Worth, the Ruth's Chris, Del Frisco's and Capital Grille are all right beside each other. Del Frisco's has been there the longest, and the Capital opened up this year. Talk about competition. Captial opened up in the same building as Del Friscos, and across the street from Ruth's Chris. I have a hard time choosing which one. I don't eat at them often enough to have a favorite.

The manager of RC in Crystal City (Washington D.C. suburb) has exactly the same name as mine. When I showed up with clients for dinner after making reservations about a month earlier on the phone, he stopped by the table and introduced himself (I'm the handsome one).

He said the reservations lady at first thought it was a prank and went into his office to let him know that HIS reservation was confirmed.

Anyway...he treated our table to a nice bottle of wine and gave me his private number for reservations any time. I gave him my private number in case he ever needed a jet engine for his fighter. LOL

My wife and I had Ruth's Chris in St. Louis a couple of years back. There is one in Birmingham but we generally try to support local restaurants whenever we eat out. The RC we ate at was in our hotel and we did not feel like roaming the city so we ate there. I must say it was a great experience, the service was excellent and the steak was quite yummy. Only steak I think I have ever had that was better was in Chicago at Gibson's. Ya'll got me thinking I might need to take my wife to RC for her birthday in March....

Treat yourself to dinner at Pappas Brothers Steakhouse in Dallas if you are ever out that way (fwiw, one of a very few good reasons to head East from Ft. W) and see the difference.

They are all fantastic, and the quality of the food and service is superb each time I go. I also like the Silver Fox and Bob's if I'm in the neighborhood.

For a quick (and less expensive) but still nice steak I also like The Keg...

Steak is something I specialize in. There is a very foolproof method for cooking nice thick steaks that are perfectly cooked all the way though. All you need is a good choice or prime steak (choice is fine) and a probe thermometer. Oh, and a decent grill. I like ceramic grills, like the Primo or Big Green Egg.

1. Let steak rest at room temp for 1 hour at least. 2" thick is great, 1" minimum for this method. Bone in is best.

2. Season well with coarse salt and pepper.

3. Grill indirect (flame not under meat) at 250 degrees until internal temp reaches about 110 deg. This is the time to add wood smoke if desired.

4. Remove from grill, leave probe in, cover with foil. Crank grill up to high heat and arrange a grate as close to direct flame as possible. The steak will rise in temp from carry over heat. When internal temp starts to drop, it's time to remove probe.

5. Sear steak about 1 minute each side. Remove and again cover for 10 minutes. If really thick you can sear a bit longer.

That's it! It's called the reverse sear method and it works very well. Letting a nice herb butter melt on the steak during the second rest is recommended for additional awesomeness.

RC is our gold standard for steak. I've paid more for a steak but I've never had a better steak. The sides, salads, desserts, and drinks are all outstanding. I've also never had better service anywhere regardless of the location. The only legitimate complaint I've ever heard of RC is from people who don't like steak butter. Those people are, however, silly.

Del Frisco's is a close second. Morton's, Bob's, III Forks, the local Chicago places, and cheaper alternatives are distant thirds IMO. Some of these places have good food but they lose on atmosphere and/or service. RC doesn't pack their tables together, doesn't leave TV's or music blaring, and has nice ambiance.

When we lived in Louisiana we liked a local casino steakhouse for food, service, and atmosphere. Problem was there was always some guy showing up in shorts and a wife beater that just won the slot machine jackpot.

I didn't think you were TC'ing with malicious intent, but stating an opinion, that I happen to agree with.

Del Frisco's in Vegas had the best steak I've ever eaten (better than Craftsteak or any other high end place).

I have eaten at Peter Luger's in Brookyln, too, and still think Del Frisco's is better.

I'm not an expert, but I think that the way the steak is aged (duration, humidity, temperature) is just as important as the quality of the beef in terms of the final taste.

The steak I had at Del Frisco's was the New York Strip, medium rare. I think it was 20 ounces.

The best budget chain place for steaks is Texas Roadhouse, IMO.

I've never had a bad steak at TR. They are superior to Outback, Logan's or any of the other chain steak places.

No love for Morton's. They're not 'bad', but the half-dozen times I've been there in various cities, I've never found it compelling.

Ruth's Chris is among my faves. Truly consistently good steaks, some of the better sides among premium steakhouses, and almost always good service.

That said, the one here in Seattle has DEEPLY suffered since it moved from an independent location into a hotel. It's now hotel union labor, and the quality and consistency dropped like a homesick meteor.

I now go to the one in Bellevue, on the other side of the lake. It's in the same class as every other RC I've been to, except Downtown Seattle post-hotel-evil.

The other steakhouse I really like is CraftSteak in the MGM Grand in Las Vegas - just amazing.

Not a steakhouse, but perhaps the best steak I've ever had is at the little French restaurant 'Fleur de Lys' in the Mandalay Bay, also in Vegas. Not for the purist, as it has a red wine reduction on it, but the ribeye/sauce combination was jaw-droppingly good.

Probably like you, the best steak I ever had was at home, "Sparks" in NYC was the exception - and I've been to Ruth's Chris, Mortons, Folks Folly (Memphis), Berns (Tampa), Elway's (Colorado), Bourbon's (DC), and Dickie Brennan's (NOLA).

My method is a bit different than than yours. I actually put them in the freezer on an open rack for about 15-20 minutes before seasoning/olive oil then searing. The dry air in the freezer insures a moisture free surface so than the meat will sear quickly without having to "boil-off" the moisture. It will also cool the meat somewhat so that you can get a "crusty" outside with a rare/med-rare inside.

Then I sear in an iron skillet with peanut oil just below smoke point, then grill directly over hot coals, then indirect grill for temperature.

If we are talking home grilling, I am also a fan of the reverse sear. I don't let it sit to room temp, but I only season good meat with smoked salt and fresh cracked pepper, low indirect for a bit, depending on thickness (ribeye to tri tip) then final sear over high direct heat. For the rest, I tent it with foil and put some amish roll butter on top, or bacon fat and let her relax for ten to fifteen minutes.

I used to doubt your reverse sear but after you recommended that technique for my holiday prime rib I'm a believer!

Just kidding with respect to the second question's bad joke.

Been there a few times and to be honest, it's not worth the money but they typically are reliable, good looking restaurants. Just think that an Outback has similar quality steaks.

The most important thing is that if you enjoyed the experience, it was well worth it.

Ruth Fertel bought the Chris Steak House in New Orleans. Sorry, Outback steaks are not even remotely comparable.

Took my wife to RC in Virginia Beach for 30th wedding anniversary. Serving was less than stellar, food was cold and it was $200. I talked with their corporate office. They did refund some of my money with a coupon. Just threw it in the trash. Should have went to Golden Coral, 2 people $30 and the food would have been better. Yes, a little bitter. Only one 30th anniversary.

We were living right across the street at the time. HH

I don't care how much you hooty snooty folks pay for your steak you won't get any better than Golden Corral.

We had a Golden Corral here many years ago and it went out of business. My gosh I miss that place. I loved Bonanza, Ponderosa and Ruby Tuesday's to.

In a few days I'm going to go into the backyard and kill and butcher a steer with my own hands. And then I'll eat tenderloins from that steer I killed.
It's a different kind of scale.

Does anyone here dry age their steaks at home or know anything about how to do it/what equipment is needed?

I've become convinced that this is the holy grail of producing the optimum flavor.

I just left the equivalent of a GC (or Outback for that matter) steak in my toilet.

I ate at Peter Lugers as a youngster before I KNEW about food. O'pa was a foody, blue ribbons on the fridge and everything.

When I grew up and became a meat clerk(Safeway) I spent a lot of time trying to reproduce the lunches of my youth.

Couldn't be done.

When I got older and started making real money, RC moved into and to the top of my list.

Donovan's Steakhouse is also top five in San Diego. Maybe California.

All of these replies and not one mention of THE best steakhouse in the country. I've eaten at most of the forementioned, but none compares to Bern's in Tampa.

The most unique and probably the most expensive in the country.
