Chicago Best Steak

Description: Steak on your mind? Let Chicago Best Steak help you find the best steakhouse in all of Chicago. You won’t be disappointed.


  1. A slice of beef
  2. delicious

When’s the last time you had a really good steak? And we aren’t talking about “the usual” boring slab of meat. We’re talking, juicy-tender-exploding-in-your-mouth flavor that completely knocked your socks off.

Yeah…we’re thinking it’s probably been a while.

When it comes to Steaks, no city is more passionate than CHICAGO. The Windy City, after all, is home to many of the WORLD'S BEST STEAKHOUSES.

We Pay Respect to the Beef

Steak, in definition, is really quite simple. It is a cut of beef prepared by a butcher that is cooked to a safe temperature for consumption. But it’s so much more than that!

Chicago Best Steak, founded in 2000, pays homage to these Chicago gems, and for 14 years, it’s been our mission is to recognize the city's finest independent and nationally owned steakhouses. We’ve seen the good, the bad, and the ugly—all so you don’t have to. Each steakhouse that makes our cut is simply the best. Each highlighted steakhouse has been highly regarded by local and national media outlets such as Chicago Tribune, Chicago Sun-Times, DiRoNA, Wine Spectator and Zagat.

Steak is Perfect for Any Occasion

So whether you are looking for a nice restaurant to take your special someone to, a memorable steakhouse to celebrate your birthday, or simply want to enjoy a delicious steak, all of our featured steakhouses are sure to make the cut.

How Do Steakhouses Get Chosen?

Alright, alright. We know you are probably wondering how a steakhouse even gets considered to be on our prestigious list. To be considered, a Chicago's Best steakhouse must feature USDA Prime Beef on its menu and also offer world-class service and an extensive wine and spirits list.

Enough. I want my steak!

We could sit here all day showing you amazing photos of these Chicago steakhouses—but your mouth has probably been watering just thinking about all these amazing steakhouses. (We won’t judge—just maybe wipe your drool off the keyboard.)
