Best Steak near KC Airport

Staying near the KC Airport on business and would like to find the best quality steakhouse near by. Help !

  1. Hereford House is in Zona Rosa just a few miles south of the airport. I've never been but it's a local place - maybe someone else will chime in.

      Meh, Hereford House is alright, but by no means great. If you're craving a steak it will probably suffice, but if you are looking for something amazing you'll probably be fairly disappointed.

      I think it's probably the best (only?) option that's close to the airport. If you really want quality and have a car I think it'd be better to make the drive to something better (Plaza III, Jess & Jim's, Golden Ox, etc).

        pollymerase is right. Gotta look beyond the airport. KC's airport is 30 minutes north of the city but the trip outta that area is worth it. Plaza III is our pride and joy but to be honest, the best steak I've ever had here came from (*gulp) Capital Grille on the Plaza (which is a chain!!!). Can't believe I said it, but it's true.

    2. As a Northlander I can honestly good steak places by the airport (not counting our deck ~ my husband is a wickedly awesome griller). We have consistently been unimpressed with the Hereford House. IMHO...I have yet to find a truly great steak place in KC...but my uncle was a cattle farmer so I'm a bit spoiled. You'd be much better off trying our BBQ.
