Best Steakhouses in the U.S.: Jess & Jim's

Jess & Jim’s, Kansas City, MO

In 1972, Calvin Trillin put this family-owned grill, a 30-minute drive from downtown Kansas City, on the map when he touted it in Playboy as one of the nation’s best steakhouses. The two-inch-thick, 25-ounce sirloin, which is named after the magazine and delivered well charred and sizzling, still lives up to that hype. Also of note is the twice-baked potato, which weighs in at more than a pound—and that’s before it’s loaded up with sour cream, bacon, and cheese. jessandjims.com
