“Beef at its best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

Well, this this steak house might not have the friendliest staff or the classiest interior. But they made simply the best piece of meat I had in my entire life. Spending three weeks in the US - no one did it better, not even (much) more upscale places. I had the house special, a marinated and aged Angus ground Rib Eye steak Midwestern style. It was awesome beyond words. Though perfectly crisp on the outside, the meat literally melted on my tongue. It actually was so tender, that the meat fell right off the bone. It was gigantic in size, too, and more than worth its price. Starters and sides were flawless, too, but you have to go there for the beef.

“BIGGEST RIB EYE IN TOWN!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2012

I love STEAK! I have probably had the Rib Eye Steak at most of Visalia's restaurants. The Double LL has a GREAT tasting and one of the most largest Rib Eyes I have ever had. Great Taste too. The atmosphere is country.... but nice. If you like steaks, I do recommend the Double LL.

“good but pricey”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

The food is very good but a little on the pricey side. Their service is good and friendly and they make a great steak.

“No Issues, just a Perfect Steak”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2011

A good restaurant in Visalia is like being the tallest midget in the room...the peer group isn't so great in this town!

That being said, we recommend the Double L Steak House. This is a place you come to for a really good hunk of red meat.

The size of the menu may be a bit overwhelming, but if you are a lighter eater turn right to the back page. The "Light Dinner" options here must mean any steak weighing in less than 24 ounces. Consider splitting an entree, the house will set up a second plate with all side dishes (no entree) for $8.95.

I ordered the boneless rib eye, cooked medium. That is how it arrived.
Opted for the baked potato (hot and fluffy) and steamed veggie (broccoli). The small dinner salad was dressed correctly. Note the steaks here are grilled cowboy style, seasoned with a dry rub (good) and cooked over oak coals (damn good). If you do not care for a seasoning rub, advise your server.

My wife ordered the chicken fried steak. It was a thick slab of bottom round cooked correctly but she was disappointed in the cream gravy which tasted canned instead of made from scratch. She raved about the house rice side dish. She got through about half the steak before calling it a night.

Portions are big here, you may want to doggie bag the leftovers.
