“Good steaks, reasonably priced - YOU cook them!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

You select your beef, chicken, etc., and you season then cook your own steak. I had the filet and it was $23 and excellent, not the $40+ prices around town. The secret for me was asking for cooking oil, so when it is poured over the steak there is a nice flame to charcoal the meat into a Pittsburgh steak. Salad was also very large. No wait to get in. It wasn't gourmet, nor a gourmet atmosphere, but if you get a bad steak, you only have yourself to blame. It has NOTHING to do with being a strip joint, (unless there is a back room I didn't know about)!

“Not a Strip Joint - It's a Steak House - and a GOOD ONE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Strip steak - get it? lol It's a really nice restaurant with awesome food that you cook yourself on a super hot grille (there are several to use.) We went with a group of 15, and the service was awesome, the food was amazing, and the steaks were, to a man, raved about. It was a great, fun way to enjoy an evening. I will definitely be returning on my next visit!

“Fantastic value and good quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013 via mobile

Don't be put off by the seedy name, this is a secret gem.
There is only one caveat- you grill your own steak. Personally I loved this but if you are looking to sit down and chill and this isn't for you then it may be best to avoid.
That aside,the food was excellent quality, portions were generous, service was great and a substantial meal for two hungry guys came to less than half of what I'd have expected to pay at another steakhouse. Was very impressed

“Excellent food and prices with a bit of fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013

We walked pasted this restaurant thinking that it was a stip club!! After further inspection we saw it was a steak restaurant! When we got in there we saw that you cooked your own steak! Once you have ordered you are given your steak wrapped in cling film, and a basket of garlic bread to toast! You can go up to one of the grills whenever you like and start cooking! There are various spices and herbs and you can cook your steak the way that you like it! We loved it here and the prices were great value! If i were ever in San Diego again i would be sure to go back! Was one of our favourite meals during our 10 night stay in America.

“Great location and great if you can grill!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

Really enjoyed a night here.
Great fun to cook my own steak and burn my hand slightly :(
Staff were wonderful and the food was nice too. Sat outside and watched the world go through Gas Lamp district.
