In my brain a nice base of steak in your stomach helps absorb alcohol so you can drink a lot and never get pass that point of being too drunk. Is this true? Well, the internet says protein (meat), carbs (mashed potatoes) and vitamins (does creamed spinach count?) are what you need to not be hungover…and I always trust the internet so it is a fact in my book.
Back in the day (2007-2011) your 360VegasOasis hosts would religiously dine at Austin’s Steak House in Texas Station every Friday night because we read it won “Best Ribeye in Vegas” for like 7 consecutive years.
When you get off the Rancho Drive exit on the 95 in Northern Vegas you have your doubts.
|Now imagine it is dark.|
When you walk through Texas Station you really have your doubts.
|$5 craps? Try 50 cent craps!|
But when you walk inside it is a nice steak house and the rib eyes are:
|Yum...and this picture actually doesn't do it justice.|
We went to Austin’s for years until someone asked a doorman where the best steak in Vegas was. He said Del Frisco’s.
Now, don’t get me wrong, Del Frisco’s is amazing but it also has multiple locations all over the country (the Santa Monica location is two miles from my home) and doesn’t feel very ‘Vegas’. However, if you are staying at the Hard Rock or the Westin Del Frisco’s is within walking distance and I prefer it to Morton’s across the street (both are great though). Be sure to ask to see the James Bond wine bottle collection they have hidden in the restaurant.
|This is actually a closed table that opens to 007 theme music.|
|Thunderball is my favorite Bond for what its worth.|
Want to feel like you are eating steak in an ‘old Vegas joint’? Try the Golden Steer.
The place has swanky, red velvet booths, tons of black and white photos of famous people (I ASSUME this means they ate there) plus it is located in a strip mall just west of the strip on Sahara. How is the value? Um, moving along…
…did you know there is a damn good steak house downtown? Vic and Anthony’s located in the Golden Nugget, is a perfect option if you are hungry for Steak and just won big on Fremont Street.

So that’s it for the post. There are obviously tons of good steak houses in Vegas but what we are encouraging at 360VegasOasis is to venture out of the typical strip spots as good steak is all over.
Next stop for me? The Steak House in Circus Circus. No, I’m serious. I heard from a local it is the best steak in Vegas.
