What is the best, modest price steak restaurant in downtown Omaha?

I will be in Omaha for one evening. Looking for the best steak in downtown Omaha. No chains allowed. We will have a car so could drive out as far as 72nd Street. Are some of the older steak houses any good? Gorat's, Anthony's, Cascio's?

      no more than $25 or so for the steak itself. Total price for 2 of around $100 - 125 with a bottle of wine.

        If I were you I'd head out to the Drover ( It's near the top of your budget, but it's locally owned, easy to find and has some great ambiance.

        Avoid Gorat's. Anthony's is okay. Never been all that impressed with Cascio's.

          I second the Drover.

          Also consider Johnny's (the local one on 27th, not the chain in Village Pointe) or Piccolo Pete's for that old school Omaha Steakhouse experience (steak with a side of pasta anyone?).

            Also, Piccolo Pete's is Waren Buffett's favorite dining place. However you might have to stand in a queue - apparently it's been flooded with reservations after Buffett recommended it in his annual letter to shareholders...
