Looking for best steak in Orlando area

Where to go? We have had really good experience at Ruth Chris in Winter Park but wanted to try something new. Not a big fan of Flemings. Del Frisco's??? Any advice would be great.

  1. Have you tried Kres Chop House - Downtown?

    1. While I don't usually go to those "high-roller" steak houses, I can say that Del Frisco's made the best steak and was the best overall steak house experience I've ever had.

      For a change of pace, you may also enjoy the decadent experience of Texas de Brazil, the all-you-can-eat rodizio-style Brazilian restaurant on International Drive, with never-ending steak and other high-quality meats brought right to your table, as well as the best salad bar ever.

        Yeah Voodoo, that might be my favorite thing ever...
        We have 'Boizao' here in Tampa...

        I can't wait to get back in there!
        They do a $19.99 lunch Rodizio that's off-da-charts!

          Lou is right on, Del Frisco's is probably the best in Orlando, although a hike depending on where you are. Texas de Brazil is a good place to go tie on a food coma too hehe

        2. Thanks for all of your help. We had heard mixed reviews about Del Frisco's so maybe we will go that route. We live near Winter Park so it is not that far of a drive.

          1. The overall best is off of my grill - bone-in ribeye with olive oil, coarse sea salt and fresh ground pepper grilled just the other side of rare. But since you're not invited over... :)

            We've been to all of them in town - and it really is a matter of taste - to us we thought Del Frisco's was a little overrated. We usually go to Charley's on South OBT as it's a simple solid steak and a little cheaper than the high end places.

            But the best steak in Orlando isn't at a steakhouse. It's the porcini dusted filet at K Restaurant in College Park. Plus you can get the best app in town too - the fried green tomato and crab stack.
