“They know steak!”
Review of Bogie's Steakhouse

Ranked #2 of 16 Restaurants in Albia
Cuisines: Steakhouse
Restaurant details
Reviewed April 3, 2014 via mobile

Drove about an hour to give this small town steakhouse a try. Was very surprised to see it packed on a Wednesday night around 7. Despite the full house, the wait staff was exceptional. The menu is small, but mighty. We chose the filet and the steak burger. The steak was cooked perfectly and didn't need a drop of steak sauce, as it should be! Steak burger was good but definitely outshined by the filet. Salad bar was basic as well, but all toppings were fresh and the bar itself was very clean. After watching deliver of food to other tables, we plan to give the prime rib and the walleye a try next time!

I've been to those fancy places where the waiter carries a flash light and a magnifying glass so you can inspect your steak. These folks understand how to cook it right the first time. Our table of 5 had a variety of plates and all were more than pleased with their meal. I had the large ribeye and the only better steak I've had was my uncle's ranch in eastern New Mexico.

Toni and Kevin the owners invest so much passion in your meal that you feel right at home.

As hard as it for this Texan to say, I'll say it: The BEST Beef I've ever had was in Iowa!

A friend of my co-worker recommended Bogie's so we took a 50 mile detour to eat there. You'll be sending your friends there too. I sent photos back to the folks on the Llano Estacado and they were envious.

Enjoy!

You won't be in Albia on purpose. But if you are, go here. Be prepared to spend money, but every penny is worth it. The steaks are amazing.

Bogie's is one of the best restaurants in southern Iowa. The steaks are the size of your head and the meat is cooked to perfection. The owners are great people and you always come home with enough leftovers for another meal the next day.
