Best Steakhouses in the U.S.

Pappas Bros. Steakhouse, Dallas
Wood-paneled walls, club chairs, and studded red leather booths are a proven steakhouse recipe and a handsome setting for tables piled with prime beef (dry-aged in house) plus Gulf seafood, jumbo lump crabmeat-laced macaroni and cheese, and towering desserts like gooey pecan pie with praline ice cream. What really sets this steakhouse apart is its 33,000-large, Wine Spectator–lauded list, which has vintages to suit big spenders—the 1847 Chateau d’Yquem, for example—as well as the rest of us. pappasbros.com
