    Re: The SoCal. Steak House Thread

    There is a Morton's near the 7th Street/Metro Center subway stop. I see it on my walk to Staples Center for Kings games. Might have to check it out.

    No, Wood Ranch is not a steakhouse. More of a family BBQ place. No way I can afford a real steakhouse trip with my family in tow.

    That would be Camarillo.

    And they're building a new one in Ventura, just outside the Pacific View Mall.

    Hey guys,

    Just thought I'd chime in. My last real meal as a meat eater was at a local steakhouse down here in San Diego. Its called Donovan's. Everything was delicious. I highly recomend it if you are ever in the San Diego area.

    Thanks BB. I'm fairly new to the SD area and always looking for good restaurants. Is it actually in SD proper? Expensive?

    I agree with every word of this. If you liked Ruth's Chris, you will probably like Morton's even more, but there's nothing wrong with enjoying a steak at Ruth's Chris.

    If you want to eat with the Anaheimers try Chris and Pitts on Euclid and Crescent. Nothing fancy, but cheap and good IMHO. BBQ sauce and blue cheese dressing are both homemade and ummmmm...Tasty!

    I've been to the one in La Mirada off the 5, is that the one you're talking about? It was okay, nothing super amazing. But their cheese bread is AWESOME.

    Re: The SoCal. Steak House Thread

    If anyone is ever up in the Nipomo area, you must go to Jocko's Steakhouse. Jocko's Steakhouse has to be my all time favorite steakhouse up in Northern California. They serve everything from steak to chicken to ribs to porkchops. When you go to Jocko's...prepare for food overload, you get a really big portion - especially the pork chops...they are HUGE. The Large Steak Sandwich is the best. It is grilled over oak wood (go after 4 for the oak pit), served with a potato, salad, crackers, and out of this world beans. Oh, and you get grilled bread too. Reservations are not necessary, but you would have to be insane not to get them. Even with reservations, prepare to wait up to an hour during the weekends to get seated.

    Actually, if you want a good steak, Clearman's own an actual steakhouse in the Pico Rivera/Whittier area named Steak and Stein. It's more upscale than North Woods Inn and, perhaps because of that, has better food. The restaurant itself is dimly lit, perfect for a night out, and has a lovely waiting area. As for the food, the steak is absolutely perfect. Great texture and always cooked how you want it. The steak is typically served with a baked potato and their signature cheese sauce. Of course, like North Woods Inn they have a never ending basket of cheese bread. If you are in the area, you should defintely give it a try.
    I meant to do that... a little shortcut

    Hey wow, i think i actually ate there once! I was invited by some girl who was really crushing on me at the time. It was awkward because her parents were there too. But I remember liking the food.

    I'm not sure if Prime Rib counts in discussion of steakhouses but I am in complete agreement with the earlier poster regarding the utter excellence of Lawry's Prime Rib in Beverly Hills.

    Dining in such a large and luxurious dining room with such great food and incredible service is worth every penny. I think we usually end up paying about $40-$45 per plate.

    The fresh Idaho baked potatoes are HUGE and amazingly delicious. Their fresh cream spinach and corn are amazing too. The prime rib carts are something you won't see many other places either. They wheel a stainless steel cart up to your table and carve off the cut exactly as you ordered it.

    I've rarely had a salad as good as the ones they prepare right at your table. They put your glass salad bowl on top of a bowl of ice and spin the salad as they slowly pour in the Lawry's brand salad dressing. I believe it's pretty simlar to thousand island dressing. It's delicious and a real fun experience!

    I also like the little touches like the way the servers take care of each guest and make everyone feel special. Even down to sweeping crumbs off the table between courses. It's a wonderful feeling.

    And of course being able to casually mention that you drove over to Beverly Hills for a luxurious dinner is kind of nice too.

    I know it isn't unique to LA either but there are only a few other ones out there.

    Another place I love to get a good steak is at Benihana's. They sear-fry their New York strip steaks in sesame oil and it is unbelievably delicious! While you certainly can enjoy a Benihana's dinner in many other cities the one in Beverly Hills is quite special.

    Enjoy. Good eating!

    Re: The SoCal. Steak House Thread

    I'm a Ruth's Chris gal myself. But... will definetly try Morton's after reading the other comments.

    For a decent steak dinner (can't believe no one else has mentioned it), I say go "Outback tonight" [chuckle]. I've never had a send-back type meal there and I get out for about $25 for an entree plus martini.

    -- Cannot stand the Chizzler.
    -- Couldn't pay me to eat steak at Benihana's.
    -- Was unimpressed with the Northwoods Inn.
    -- Didn't care at all for the Wood Ranch BBQ place, although the garlic-ish rolls were light and fluffy.
    -- Steer Inn = scary (and over priced considering they market themselves as family / affordable).
