Now that I have moved from Chicago to Dallas on each trip back I think hard about which of the many favorite restaurants I want to visit. Last week it was Golden Steer on maybe my 8th visit over the last 20 years. It is just so good and so consistent. Here are six reasons why you want to come... More

Don't let the location and side entrance intimidate you. Warm friendly hostess and wait staff treat you like family. Regulars all dine here frequently. Superb French onion soup, prime rib to die for, and service so attentive you think you were part of the family. Decor never changed but that's ok. Look for the backward clock on the wall. One...

Great food, staff is OK, atmosphere a throw back to the 50s, in a good way. They used to call this food 'stick to your ribs." Try the French Onion soup.

Have been eating at this restaurant for about 20 years. It is my son's favorite place and it was my husband's. Our favorites are the prime rib and butt steak with the french onion soup or the cream of chicken soup and a salad. The portions are very generous and most people are able to bring a bit home for...

This steak house has really old decor, not so friendly wait staff but the food is outstanding! The best french onion soup around and their filets are far better than any I've had in the city.

I've been going here for years, having grown up in Forest Park. This evening was a birthday dinner at the restaurant with two friends. We were seated in the bar after having called for reservations earlier and told none were necessary, and finding the place paced at 4 p.m. Our waitress was rude from the time we were seated. She...

This place gives you a complete dinner - soup, salad, entree, potatoe - for a single price! You just don't see that in the Chicagoland area anymore. The steaks are outstanding. The decor is outdated, darker, and I hope that keeps away trend-seekers used to sub-par and overpriced food, as it's already hard enough to get a table!

We luckily didn't make reservations because our babysitter was late. Instead of going to a movie before eating we (my husband, two friends, and I) left to eat at 4:30 p.m. and decided to go to the movie after. Thinking that this would be well in advance of the rush for dining we were surprised to get a sideways glance... More
