Best Steak

1st Place: Texas Roadhouse
2nd Place: Picanha Brazilian Steakhouse
3rd Place: Houligans Steak & Seafood Pub


The peanut-crunchin’, staff line-dancin’, perfect roll-makin’ Texas Roadhouse (5019 Keystone Crossing, Eau Claire) is on its fifth year as victor in the Best Steak category. The slab of tenderized steak is complemented by the freedom to toss your peanut shells on the ground in open defiance of your parents’ attempts to teach you civilized manners. The Currascaria (schoo-rhas’co) style of steak preparation has wowed meat enthusiasts around the world as well as locally at Picanha Brazilian Steakhouse (5020 Keystone Crossing, Eau Claire). The open flame of mesquite wood and perfectly cooked steak is not only delicious, but also served by a Gaucho (a.k.a. cowboy) chef. At No. 3 is Houligans Steak & Seafood Pub (415 S. Barstow St., Eau Claire), the downtown institution that has been on the leaderboard for Best Steak since 2007. It may be tempting to try any of Houligans amazing entrées, but you will never leave disappointed if you go the Candied Garlic New York strip route. –Caleb Gerdes
