Great food, good price, good people – I eat often given how little I eat out, and I've had a number of items from their menu, it has all been great. Before I found out I was gluten intolerant I use to love the steak burger with extra toast, but now I stick with the steaks or grilled chicken breast. The food is very good, pretty fast, and reasonably priced. It's nice to get a salad and baked potato on the side instead of greasy friesl They cook it right in front of you, so you can see exactly how your food is prepared. The interior could use some updating, but I go there to eat, not marvel at interior design, so I'd rather they keep their prices reasonable.
The Euros Are AWESOME – The Gyros are extremely Awesome!
I served in Iraq from Sept 03-Oct 04. Ate What the Iraquis called KABOB. These guys can cook a very tasty Kabob. I go there Every Time I am Threw Minneaoplis/St. Paul. Prices are Fair and the Food is Excellent. And Service is Exceptional As Well! Would Definately Recomend this Place.
Some great steaks, nice and close to home!! – My husband and I eat here frequently. During the summer it is close enough to walk to. We truly enjoy that we are always greeted by the owner and we can watch him toss our steaks right on the grill. I truly appreciate the fact that I can see my food being prepared. As some of the other reviewers have said the decor is totally straight out of the 70's with the dark faux wood booths. The steaks are always tender and the cost is great!! They always have some sort of specials running and that is what I usually end up having. I love the fact that this is a complete meal with salad, potato, butter Texas toast done on the griddle and of course the steak.
This isn't steak - its heaven – I've had steak at some of the, "so-called", finest restaurants in the twin cities. Its hard to admit that a restaurant with worn out booths, smoke stained windows, and groove-worn carpeting - beats a fine-dining restaurant with a French name, French menu, and a seating situation that literally revolves so you can see the lights of downtown Saint Paul. Once you carve into a filet at Best Steak and watch it almost crumble beneath your knife...you'll know. To me this is steak so good you have to shut your eyes to experience it. There's an open kitchen setup where you can just smell the smoke rolling off the grill from where ever you are seated. Back to the 70s decor, but a back to your childhood experience. They should be sued for creating addictions - in fact I'm getting one now - I just came to this site to find their phone #.
Horrible experience!! – I had the worst steak there. I asked for a medium cooked steak and it was bloody raw. I sent it back and they returned the steak to me well well done! I was told "nobody else has a problem, why should you." The ambience is what we would call for a lack of better term "ugly" I would not recommend this place if you are looking for a decent steak and customer service.
"The Best Steak House" and i mean it! – It might not be the fanciest place but for the price of a steak you will not find a better value and better taste anywhere. I spent 3 to 4 times more else where and not even close to as satisfied as I am at The Best Steak House.
Great Steaks, Great Price – Do not judge this restaraunt by its looks. If you do, you will be missing out on a great steak dinner. You place your order while you grab a tray and prepare to dish up your salad AND watch as your steak is being prepared on the grill just the way you like it. You'll know when it's about done when they put your texas toast on the grill just long enough to toast it to perfection. You grab your drink, sorry folks - no alcohol, and take a seat in a 50's dinner atmosphere. Service is very personable and you feel like part of the family. You'll leave with a full stomach AND wallet! Give it a try - you won't regret it.
Value!! – I've been to this steakhouse several times. The prices absolutely cannot be beat. Try the 16 oz t-bone or the 20-oz. porterhouse, each is under $15. That price includes a small salad bar, potato choice, and texas toast.
I challenge you to find at $14 20-oz porterhouse anywhere else besides a Best Steak House.
Steaks are cooked to perfection every time, the staff is pleasant, and they have a nice selection of desserts. Or try the chicken, pork chops, and even gyros which are fabulous.
