Steak Restaurants in the USA and Canada

Introduction

Many of the family steak restaurant chains in the USA have the following features in common:

Golden Corral

The Golden Corral chain of family steak restaurants is extremely highly recommended, with excellent food, low prices, good service and a good family atmosphere. Golden Corral's tend to receive considerable patronage from local people.

Some Golden Corral Prices (June 1996)

12oz Ribeye Steak (plus baked potato, fries or rice) $7.99

8oz Ribeye Steak (plus baked potato, fries or rice) $6.59

Buffet (all you can eat soup, salad, dessert, etc.) with meal $1.99

Soft drink with unlimited refills $0.99

Senior citizen discount 50c per customer

Western Sizzlin'

Western Sizzlin' are very similar in concept and pricing to the Golden Corral, and equally highly recommended. This chain only operates in the East.

Some Western Sizzlin' Prices (Summer 1997)

Large sirloin (estimated by us as being at least 12oz) (plus baked potato or fries, and unlimited dessert) $7.79

Regular sirloin (estimated by us as being at least 8oz) (plus baked potato or fries, and unlimited dessert) $5.49

Soft drink with unlimited refills $1.19

Ponderosa and Bonanza

The Ponderosa and Bonanza steak restaurant chains are also recommended, though I personally would rate them as not quite so good as the other chains mentioned on this page.
