[Houston] Bob's Steaks & Chop House
Looking for a truly great steak in Houston and -- well, money is always an object, I suppose, but this is a special occasion. We've done The Palm and Ruth's Chris here in Houston, but we'd like to try one of the local places.
So, what about Bob's Steaks & Chop House? If you know them from Dallas, great and feel free to chime in. But I'm especially interested in Hounds who've tried the Bob's in Houston.
I think Pappas can vary and sometimes you feel like you are there in the midst of bus tours and huge crowds.
I like Brenners, both the horrible original location and the new Bayou location.
No to Vic & Anthonys.
The Strip House is good but almost laughably expensive.
Thanks a million for the great input. We did decide to try Bob's and have been back a second time since. We liked the steaks. I had the bone-in KC strip the first time and the bone-in rib eye the second time. I ordered both medium-rare; both were accurately cooked and both werer delish.
The EE ordered his usual well-done filet both times (sorry, I'm married to him; I'm not his mom!). The first time the butterflied it and I could see it was cooked all the way through and still quite juicy. The second time they did not butterfly it and it STILL left a little juice on the plate.
He ordered their house special potatoes both times and he liked them. I didn't care for them and was happy with my baked spud. I think the carrot is sort of silly, but no sillier than the hot plates at Ruth's Chris or Mastro's. I got a secret thrill from not having to pay extra for the potato.
I had the chophouse salad with creamy bleu cheese dressing both times -- the best salads I've had in Houston! The first time I ordered the chocolate cake -- very forgetable.
We enjoyed the service -- good both times, but not as fawning as at Ruth's Chris.
We look forward to trying your other suggestions, so thanks!!
