Which is better - Ruth Chris or Flemings? Also is there a difference between the Ruth Chris in Bev Hills vs the one in Irvine? Thanks

      I prefer Ruth's Chris. I think the steaks are much more flavorful.

      Fleming's is more of an Orange County "scene," if you are into that. But the last time I ate there (granted, last summer), I thought the food had gone a bit downhill and that it was overpriced for what it was. I wasn't surprised when I heard that the Fleming's chain was purchased by Outback Steakhouse.

        I have ate at both and Ruth's Chris I find to be superior. Prefer it over Mortons as well.

          The Ruth's Chris in Irvine is the best and the Beverly Hills location the worst.

            I prefer Beverly Hills over Woodland Hills.

              Another Ruth's Chris just opened its doors last week in Pasadena, across from the Paseo mall.

                Why choose between these two when a Mastros opened up in Costa Mesa? But RC over Flemings.

                  Ruth's Chris in Irvine IS the best.

                  There is also Mastros by Crystal Cove where I catch lobster...
                  only about 23490802893409832432 lamborghinis there.
