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.
