Leaderboard

The scores below are based on a rigorous 10-category, 100-point review system, which is fully explained in detail on the review criteria page. If all you are concerned about is flavor, you can say “fuck that asshole’s 100-point system,” and you can CLICK HERE to sort out just the steak joints that received my full award of points in the flavor category. Also worth noting here: This leaderboard pertains ONLY to steaks I’ve eaten at steakhouses. There are some excellent steaks served up at non-steakhouses that could easily qualify as favorites.
