By far one of the best steak houses Ive been to and thats coming from someone who lives in Ft Worth where great beef is everywhere. The atmosphere is welcoming, the staff attentive and the bone in filet is as good as it gets.

I have eaten at Folks 10-12 times and I have always walked away satisfied. The service is on point, the bone in filet excellent, the family style sides outstanding. A great place to treat your loved one or entertain a client.
