Oklahoma’s Best Steakhouses – As Voted By You
Let me just start out with this... I'm an idiot. When I put together a "best steakhouses" list last month, I totally forgot to include the actual list of steakhouses. To right this wrong, we used our Facebook page to ask you where the best steaks were in Oklahoma... The results are below.
When it comes to steak, as Oklahomans, we rarely agree. We argue over everything that goes into a proper steak. Seasonings vs marinade, charcoal vs gas, grill vs oven, rare vs medium vs edible leather... the list goes on and on.
For instance, while I've had some of the most expensive steaks in the state, I prefer the ultra-affordable offerings at Fred's in Altus. Is it the highest quality beef? Probably not, but the seasonings and perfect cook make for an amazing meal... but therein lies a different problem. You can't exactly call Fred's a steakhouse because they offer so many dishes other than steak. It's more of a regular restaurant that happens to serve a delicious steak.
That's not a knock on Fred's... Their smorgasbord of other meals is equally delicious, it just doesn't fit the definition of this list.
If you asked the internet where the best steak in Oklahoma was served, you'd get a lot of widely varied answers, and it doesn't account for your own personal taste.
There's a speakeasy-type steakhouse in my hometown called The Rusty Barrel. All of my old friends and locals swear it's amazing, but when I finally had the chance to sample it, I realized something. My friends that never left home didn't know what a good steak was.
Luckily, the internet has a way to judge, well, everything... Here are the undisputed highest-rated steakhouses in Oklahoma where you're almost guaranteed to have a good meal.
