Del Friscos, Ruth's Chris or Shula's ORLANDO?

Im trying to decide which steak house to venture out to. In Orlando I have only been to Kres and Sam Seltzers. Which do most chowhounds like out of the three? I'm a porterhouse/t-bone kinda guy , I'm leaning towards Del Friscos.

  1. You'll start quite the debate with that question! Most chowhounders prefer Del Frisco's. I find their service curt and my last meal there was awful--but I am quite the exception. There are three Ruth's Chris here; I'd avoid the Sand Lake Road one if possible because it gets a lot of tourists. You didn't mention Fleming's or Capital Grill, which I prefer to all your options. Would you consider those?

      Haha, ya I am new here (chowhound) so I havent seen the great debates but after reading reviews online for all three its easy to say "it is debateable". I have only been on Capitol Grills and Flemings websites nothing more than that. I wouldn't rule them out (how can you rule food out?) but in the Orlando area when I think of steak those 3 places come to mind.

        Of the three I'd pick Del Frisco's but I personally favor The Palm in Orlando (at The Hard Rock).

      1. I'm a huge Del Frisco's advocate. Love it, recommend it very highly. All the sides are great, beyond the amazing steaks.

          does del friscos bring an assortment of cuts out and allow you to choose which one you would like... (for marbling?)

        2. I don';t think Shula's serves prime beef, at any rate it should be third on your list; Ruth's Chris is usually pretty good, but having eaten at all three, I would put Del Frisco by far the best. that being said, Cap Grille would be my second choice.

          1. I agree, Del Frisco's is #1, with Capitol Grill coming in second (although contrary to what many people think, they don't serve Prime beef; just aged choice).

            And Ruth Chris is okay, but nothing that special. I'd rather do Flemings then Ruth Chris.
