If there ever was a list Texas was meant for, this is it. If you are looking for a den framed in cherry wood and leather, white linen table clothes and the swirling of Speyside scotches under buck busts, then a good Texan steak restaurant is what you want. Here’s a few of the best in Dallas.

1 Nick & Sam's

With an excellent steak menu and a commitment to cooking every one perfectly (the waiter will have you cut into the meat to ensure it's at your desired temperature), Nick & Sam's is clearly a Dallas staple when it comes to classic steak houses. Besides the great food and service, you can also enjoy the jazz pianist, which sets the mood for any special occasion. Plus, you can't go wrong with complimentary caviar.

2 Al Biernat's

Everything is bigger in Texas, so it's no wonder that the Prime Rib, as well as a wealth of other steaks, are so big at Al Biernat's. Executive Chef Michael Weinstein makes it a point to deliver the best of the best, including an "Air, Land and Sea" course that includes quail, buffalo, prawns and scallops. Bring your appetite.

3 Pappas Bros

Known for their Mexican food restaurant, Pappasitos, and their classic Cajun seafood joint Pappadeux, Pappas Brothers also has a wonderful steak house here in the Big D. It's got all the things one would expect from a staeak house: a members club, private dining rooms and wine tasting events. And who else has a 12 ounce filet mignon, ora 22 ounce bone-in rib eye?

4 The Capital Grille

Be wined, dined and dazzled. So says the anthem of the Capital Grille, located Uptown as a go-to spot for any local or celeb wanting to get their steak on. Dry-aged steaks, rich African mahogany paneling and deco chandeliers are just a sample of the goods you will find at this eatery. Plus a wine list of over 5,000 bottles will keep your meat tasting full bodied and slightly buzzed.

5 Charlie Palmer

Ever since its arrival, Charlie Palmer inside the Joule hotel has been a verifiable culinary hot spot. I know, I know, this is a list about steaks--and they have some, for sure--but the Lobster Corndog is a must-try as an appetizer. Also, start out with one of their excellent specialty cocktails.
