The 10 Best Steakhouses in Texas!

Texans can’t get enough steak. The state is the largest beef exporter in the country. So when picking a steakhouse for a special night out, to impress guests, or simply to try for yourself, it’s important to know which takes full advantage of the Texas appetite. Here are the 10 best in the Lone Star State.  

1. Knife, Dallas, TX

Visit the Highland Hotel in Dallas, Texas, for a once-in-a-lifetime steakhouse experience. Knife is the wonderful effort from John Tesar, Bravo “Top Chef” contestant and three-time James Beard nominated chef. The restaurant has garnered tons of accolades, and their 240-day-aged steaks are absolutely worth it.

2. Bohanan’s, San Antonio, TX

Bohanan’s is, simply put, one of the best steakhouses in the country. Zagat defined the restaurant as: “A classic steakhouse done right, this much-loved downtown restaurant exceeds expectations with outstanding beef and an old-school vibe.” Expect to stay the evening and eat luxuriously. 

3. Brenner’s Steakhouse on the Bayou, Houston, TX

Brenner’s Steakhouse has been in business since 1936, and has racked up innumerable awards since then. They serve brunch and dinner with steaks, chops, and seafood as the main attractions.

4. Four Winds Steakhouse, Wills Point, TX

A recent reviewer of Four Wings Steakhouse in Wills Point, Texas wrote, “Anyone who’s stepped inside Four Winds Steakhouse has come out a changed person… it’s near impossible to have a bad meal here.” Works for us! Find delicious options ranging from 26-ounce bone-in ribeye to a juicy New York strip. 

Best steak I've ever had! 26oz bone in ribeye! #eattogrow #steak #birthdaydinner
