I am interested in knowing if anyone has been to The Master Steak Restaurant in Mississauga just south of 401 and what was it like?

    It's pretty much a trucker's stop. The steaks are dirt cheap and there is a MASSIVE cut (the Delmonico) that's not typically found at your typical steak joint. Dining atmosphere is a no-frills cafeteria-style complete with trays. Can't really complain much about the steaks given the price point (if I remember correctly only the Delmonico was above $20), and the nice thing is they will actually cook your steak to order (still fuming about a recent dinner at a surf and turf restaurant in Orlando where everyone's steaks, despite costing over two times as much, came out 'medium'). Been too sketched out to attempt the shrimp but I haven't known anyone to get sick from them.

      Look out. The cheap prices posted on the big signs in the window will be available only during times that you are not there.

        I have a friend who likes heading out there every now and then for late night cheap steaks. He says they are marinated steaks to make them more tender, but I don't know for sure.

        I've never been there but when I'm out there I can't resist going to Zet's (24 hr diner on airport road).

        Haven't been for awhile but it's probably still a stripped-down, no BS joint with a cafeteria/diner vibe that's good value. Steaks were Bronto-sized but cooked to order.Dixie is logistics row, so the clientele is working stiffs after a good meal and some R&R. Might go again soon if I need some Neolithic grub. Straight-up meat. A find for Flintstone appetites.
