Good Steaks!

As a long-time Topeka resident I surprisingly had never heard of North Star Steakhouse! It is hidden away in North Topeka in a non-descript building. The interior is dated and dark. Our server was friendly and very competant. The menu is limited, but with multiple steak options. The salad and rolls... read more

Avoid the chain places and go to this hidden gem. Step back in time at this throwback steakhouse. Your taste buds will thank you.

This restaurant is a Topeka tradition. Their chicken fried steak is so good...but of course they are well known for their steaks. Love their onion rings as well. Very limited hours though so you may call to make sure they are open.

Salad, was a plate of old iceberg lettuce. I ordered a med rare ribeye, got a kc strip, I asked the waiter to correct the issue, he assured me I was wrong ???? . It's not hard to tell the difference after 60 years, the medium cooked strip tasted good , I would have preferred the med rare rib eye... More

A local spot you have to visit if you like a great steak. Off the "old route" 24, your likely to miss this spot unless you talk to the locals , but this is the place for steaks in Topeka. Outside of building is very plain, a little dark inside with a cozy feel. Suggest reservations if your going with... More

We were greeted well and our server was great. Food was very good and the retro feel was great. This place is out of the way but worth the find.

This little out of the way place does not look as nice as the steaks are good. Service was adequate. They don't waste a lot of time on you but, they are very busy. I ordered a filet mignon and my husband ordered a rib eye. They were excellent. Salads and rolls were okay - nothing special. It was recommended... More

The arrogant general manager lost our business tonite. We have been loyal patrons of over 50 years. But I don't believe they care. The whole evening was surprising and shockingly cavalier towards us-paying customers. Won't be paying there any more.

It is a local favorite and we have eaten there for years but management, or lack of management is ruining it. You can call ahead to reserve a time but they do not honor it. Upon entering the establishment, the manager/hostess was on the phone the entire time and did not acknowledge or greet us. The party we were meeting... More

Went on a recommendation from a Topeka local, and I'm telling you, don't judge a book by it's cover. Was a little hesitant pulling into the parking lot, and even entering the place, but the service was very friendly. I went early on a Wednesday night, so wasn't very crowded but I could see on a prime going out night,... More
