Bob’s specializes in serving big, flavorful steaks that are hand-selected from the top two percent of USDA prime beef.

2. Nick and Sam’s Steakhouse

3008 Maple Ave, Dallas, TX 75201
(214) 871-7444

Located in bustling Uptown Dallas, Nick and Sam’s is a popular destination for young professionals and seasoned pros alike. The contemporary restaurant was awarded the Five Star Award in 2008 and continues to draw a crowd for dinner, drinks (with over 500 wine labels) and elaborate desserts. If you dine here for a birthday, we strongly recommend you try one of their incredible cakes. Enjoy their Wagyu selections, plus seafood and sushi entrees.

3. Ruth’s Chris Steak House 

17840 Dallas Pkwy, Dallas, TX 75287
(972) 250-2244

This chain is an oldie, but a goodie. Ruth’s Chris is home to sizzling steaks served on 500-degree plates. They mean serious business here with their steaks. The restaurant’s beefy and juicy steaks are never frozen and go through a wet-aged process – which heavily tenderizes the meat. Also guests can enjoy larger than life crab cakes, a chilled seafood tower and other seafood delights. Check out the restaurant’s weekly hour happy hour at the bar, including discounted prices on select appetizers, entrees, cocktails and wine. (Happy hour times and prices may vary per location.)

4. Y.O. Steakhouse

702 Ross Ave, Dallas, TX 75202
(214) 744-3287

A hearty Texas-style steak dinner awaits at Y.O. Steakhouse in Dallas. The meat is derived from the restaurant’s ranch, Y.O. Ranch, located in the Hill Country. Enjoy meats seasoned with the brand’s very own herbs and spices, plus a secret finishing sauce. If you enjoy wild game meats, you’ll find an extensive selection here as well, including the signature buffalo filet mignon dish.
