Best steakhouse in the Los Angeles area.... Hey Chowsters... Chime in!

Ok tired of eating sushi this week so I'm ready for some major beef consumption... Who has the best steak in town?

      Thanks estone888 didn't see the post from July..... I'll take a look at it!

    2. My choice would be Dan Tanas. Sit in the bar room. Maestros is a good choice too.

        Love Dan Tana's. Never get the steak though. Can't resist their veal chop or parm. Will have to break out of my habit next time, thanks!

      2. I like Mastros too. But on someone elses dime. :(

        1. Best place without emptying your bank account is Taylor's.

          1. Fogo de Chao to put any steak lover into a wonderful meat induced coma (plus the best salad bar in town to wet your appetite first),

              I really need to try that place. Plus I have two growing boys with hollow legs that could do me proud. Think we'll go this weekend, thanks for reminding me!!

                Don't forget the awesome creme de papaya dessert afterwards to help you digest all that protein!

                        I went for dinner last go around and it was just a massive crush of people. Unless there is no other way you can afford to visit, I would avoid during DineLA.

                            Agree. DineLA is to be avoided.

                              You know, I've never tried it before, always had a bad feeling, glad you both have confirmed it. I will go on our own, thanks for the insight.

                                I have had great DINELA experience(s) including a DINELA lunch at Fogo......

                                1. re: foufou

                                  So have I and at DineLA you get the same meal at dinner for $45 instead of $58. Excellent service even with the crowds.

                                  1. re: wienermobile

                                    Agree that Fogo is the one truly good deal for DineLA, since it's the same meal for less. But yeah, waiting time can be 1+ hour even after your reservation time...

                                    1. re: chrishei

                                      Consider lunch rather than dinner for DINELA.....we were seated immediately and had noon reservation

                                      1. re: chrishei

                                        I've done Fogo for DineLA three times...and never had to wait long for my reserved table at all. Albeit, my reservation is usually earlier during dinner service.

                              2. re: downastro

                                When they use to do lunch on weekends I went for DineLA on a Sunday and it wasn't packed, moderately busy. Too bad they stopped lunch service on weekends. I may have to find friends willing to go on a weekday this year.
