Publican beats any steak house hands down. You will not find a lot of beef there though and certainly no giant rib-eyes or overpriced tomahawk chops.

We recently ate at Harry Carey's and thought it was good. For someone from the Southwest it also seemed iconic of Chicago.

Harry Carey's is the Cubs team of steakhouses. Love the losers; forgive the loss.

Ronny's steak house. There were a few locations in the south loop. Not sure if they expanded their franchise. Home of the grisly steak garnished with a slice of oily pizza.

Ronny's is down to one location-not like the good old days, when there were as many Ronny's along the State Street Mall as Woolworth's. The one in the Old Heidelberg building was a trip. Great place to take your picky kids.

Ronnys is fun just for the ordering directly to the cooks. All real characters. If you are looking for a fancy Chicago steak house, this is not it. But the food is good and plentiful. Great garlic bread and baked potato. Fun time.
