10. Pruller Restaurant
> City: Marlborough, Massachusetts
A no-frills Brazilian place with skewers of grilled steak and other meats (the garlic beef is popular) and extravagant buffets (no longer self-service) of hot and cold side dishes, Pruller is hailed by Yelpers for “delicious food at good prices” and a staff that is “welcoming and attentive.” There’s an all-you-can-eat option for just $15.99 — praised by reviewers as a great bargain.
9. Terra Gaucha Brazilian Steakhouse
> City: Jacksonville, Florida
“Be prepared to be wowed by the MEAT!!” exclaims a Yelp user about this clubby steakhouse, before going on to offer special praise for the bacon-wrapped filet, the ribeye, the tenderloin, and the garlic steak. Another offers “I really cannot commend enough the superb service and food of Terra Gaucha!”
8. 4 Charles Prime Rib
> City: New York, New York
The short menu at this trendy Greenwich Village establishment, with its old-fashioned supper club atmosphere, offers three cuts of prime rib and only one steak — but it’s a 22-ounce dry-aged bone-in ribeye with béarnaise sauce that gets high marks all around and is probably at least partly responsible for the fact that this is one of New York’s toughest restaurants to get into. For those who like their steaks ground, by the way, the hamburger is famous.
7. Goodies In the Pantry
> City: Orange, California
Behind its rather bland-sounding name, Goodies is a full-scale deli, charcuterie, butcher shop, and three-meals-a-day restaurant. The menu features a 48-ounce 35-day-dry-aged smoked tomahawk and a smoked bison tri tip flambéed with bourbon, among other meaty delights.
6. Fazenda Gaúcha
> City: Bedford, Texas
This family-owned Brazilian steakhouse “doesn’t have all the bells and whistles of the more well-known Brazilian places,” writes one Yelper, “but the food held its own.” In addition to well-prepared cuts of steak, “the sides are wonderful” and “the salad bar was great,” writes another reviewer.
