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

  1. Flemings. PRIME BONE-IN RIBEYE 22 oz. OMG!!!!

    1. 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.

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

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

            I prefer Beverly Hills over Woodland Hills.

          2. RC

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

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

                1. Ruth's Chris in Irvine IS the best.

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