Best Local Steak

Chandlers Steakhouse

There's a big gulf between steakhouses that have the magic touch and those that don't. Chandlers has it, and since 2008, it has had a lock on this category. Whatever they do to make beef taste so good, it's working.

2nd Place: Barbacoa—Barbacoa—Caribbean for "barbecue"—has made a thing out of doing steaks the hard way. Go full classic with the Cowboy Rib Eye or go wild with the "Hot Rock" Fillet—a 10-ounce filet mignon slathered in cognac sauce. With a full menu to choose from, there's a lot of variety, but it's hard to go wrong.

3rd Place: Lock Stock and Barrel—Lock Stock and Barrel treats the American rituals surrounding seared beef like an Olympic torch, offering rib eyes, filets, New York strips and prime rib served just the way you like it.
