20. The Saddle Room
> City: Waimea (Kauai), Hawaii

What makes this casual Hawaiian burger place special for steak lovers is the grass-fed Kauai beef (the island is famous for it) served in the form of 8-ounce New York strips either on a sizzling platter with mushrooms and onions or pulehu-style (grilled over hot coals) with oyster garlic butter sauce.

19. Primal Steakhouse
> City: Las Vegas, Nevada

From the smoked steak salad with blue cheese dressing to the 44-ounce tomahawk steak, meat is the thing at this Vegas showplace with its “rustic/medieval” atmosphere (says a Yelper), reminiscent of a scene in the History Channel’s series “Vikings” (says another). Seared lamb chops and a “big smoked burger” are among the other choices.

18. Webb Custom Kitchen
> City: Gastonia, North Carolina

“Handle a 40-ounce aged Certified Angus Beef charbroiled porterhouse and you will earn a spot in our history, forever honored on our wall of fame,” reads an entry on the menu at this community-focused restaurant in an historic movie theatre. More modest cuts are also available, including a center-cut filet mignon and a hand-cut aged ribeye.

17. Ken Love’s BYOB
> City: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

“This is more than a hidden gem,” according to one recent Yelp review. “Every time I go the menu changes and it always has crazy good but also inventive dishes.” There’s just one steak on the current menu, a hanger steak with shiitake mushrooms and unagi (Japanese eel) sauce. How is it? One recent diner: “The flavor of the steak was so good and flavorful — charred slightly smoky on the outside with a balanced seasoning throughout the meat.”

16. Restaurant Rebirth
> City: New Orleans, Louisiana

The modern Cajun-Creole food here, prepared by chef Ricky Cheramie, a veteran of K-Paul’s, Commander’s Palace, and other noted local restaurants, includes a filet mignon and a cowboy ribeye from pasture-raised cattle, with a choice of optional sauces and toppings (including quintessentially New Orleans fried oysters).
