Looking for a great steak without going downtown. Anything in the Northern burb's?

    It's a little kitschy and certainly not fine dining, but Lindey's Steak House is pretty good. Very limited options, but what they do is done very well.

      If you want a one-pound steak, Lindy's is a fine place to go. Otherwise, you're pretty much out of luck there.

        That's a good point. On the other hand it's also part of the whole Lindey's experience. They have their "one size fits all" menu, delivered on a placard rather than a menu. You get the tasteless iceberg lettuce salad, the decent cheesy potato gratin, some pickled water melon rind, and your steak - which is always a sirloin. The place it a total throwback, and if you're into that sort of experience that's part of its charm. However that steak is really, really good.

      how about east? the hanger room in wilernie is serving some of the best dry-aged beef around, and sorry to say, you will not have trouble getting a table.

        How about NW burbs? Maple Grove?

          Porterhouse has always been good for me.

          I would go west to Giannis. Food was very good.
