“Best steakhouse in America, come hungry!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

An institution in Houston, the Taste of Texas on the Katy Freeway has to be the best steakhouse in America. The steaks are the best Angus beef and so tender, salad bar and bread fresh & organic, wine selection is superb, and dessert is so delicious. You will not be disappointed, just very satisfied and full after dining. Service is most attentive. Downsides are: they do not take reservations and it is pricey. Thus the wait on a Friday or Saturday night is at least an hour or more unless you arrive early. Well worth the price so generally dine on special occasions.

“Select the meat you eat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

Big restaurant, could be a bit crowdy. Menu selection is rich. You can select from a lotnof high quality types of steaks in different sizes. Before cooking you go to their little butchershop and pick your own piece of meat to cook. Good selection of local and international beers and deserts selection and sizes are not for you if you are on a diet.

Best steaks ever

A must eat place when visitors come to town or special occasion

Salad bar, hot rolls, appetizers, everything excellent

Eaten there many times...always a wait but worth it

“Meat Lovers Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

We went at Christmas time. The place is decked out with Christmas decorations and looks fabulous! We had to wait an hour and 15 minutes for a table (they do not take reservations) but apparently that is normal and while you wait you get complimentary drinks and food (popcorn and chips with dip). Then when we went through we got to pick our own steak! After that we went to the salad bar which was great, it came with your steak. They also had buttery bread, cheese bread and corn bread. All of these are made in house. We had such an enjoyable time. I will definitely go back again. Oh and service was great...also order desert, they show you a tray of all the deserts and you can see what it will look like. Very nice touch.
