Best Steak Restaurant, founded in 2001, pays homage to best cuts of steak at best steakhouses. And for over 15 years, it’s been our mission to recognize America’s finest independent and nationally owned steakhouses and help meat-lovers find the steakhouse right for them. We've seen the good, the bad, and the ugly—all so you don’t have to. Each steakhouse that makes our cut is, simply put, the best. Each of our highlighted steakhouse has been highly regarded by our own critics as well as local and national media outlets such as Chicago Tribune, Chicago Sun-Times, DiRoNA, Wine Spectator and Zagat.
