I can't say anything good about this place.It's a cafeteria-style.The salad was a piece of lettuce with a slice of tomato. The steak was of poor quality and not one smile from anyone who worked there.

There are times when local flavor can not explain away conditions, and this is one of those times. About 25 years ago I ate at this restaurant and it reminded me of the old style steak houses in New York; not too bad, fast and affordable. At that time it was owned by Greeks and my husband is Greek. So... More

I've been eating here for at least 20 years now. The place is not exquisite but the food is some of the best that you will every taste. When you arrive, you stand in line (cafeteria style) and yell out your order to the cooks. When you visit be sure to put a dollar in the tip jar and they... More

The food was really good, I got the steak and shrimp and it was wonderful. The steak was really tender and good flavor. Better steak than Outback. The dessert was ok. The price was great it was $34 for me and my husband and we both had dessert. My only complaint is the guy that was cooking the food right... More

We needed a bite before the show at the Fox. Decided to try Best Steak House. Don't go in expecting fine dinning. I had a gyro and fries and my wife had a gyro salad. Service was fast and interesting. Be prepared when the cook yells next. The yogurt sauce was very good. Would try it again.

Probably not for everyone, but Best Steak House offers excellent food in a no-frills, efficient manner. It is cafeteria style. Lines are often long, so be prepared to place your order when it is your turn. That is part of the overall experience. When you hear, "Next!", yelled out, and it's your turn to order, yell back your order or... More

Great stop on your way to the Fox. A quick in an out restaurant with great food. An assortment of steaks or chicken. Your able to watch your meal cook right in front of you while you cycle through line. Must get an extra order of Texas toast.

We stopped by for lunch. This place has been here forever so we thought we'd give it a try. My husband's opinion was that we could have done better at Ponderosa. I described this place as a greasy spoon because my chicken sandwich (and all sandwiches) was served on buttered and grilled texas toast which was very greasy. My husband... More

We went for dinner before attending a show at the Fox Theater. It's very convenient to the Fox, but definitely not worth the bother. We both had steaks and unfortunately both were full of gristle. Side dishes were ok, but nothing special. Workers were not exactly rude, but they just didn't seem to care that we were there. There are... More
