Celebrating its 74th anniversary on April 15, 2012, Jess And Jim's Steakhouse has stood the test of time. The Van Noy clan owns and operates the throwback eatery and leads a staff whose dedication dates back, in some cases, more than 40 years. They serve hand-cut Sterling Silver beef sourced from the Great Plains and showcase fresh varieties in a chilled meat case.
This family-friendly establishment owes at least some of its popularity to prominent men's magazines. John Mariani of Esquire magazine named their Playboy Strip one of the 20 best steaks in America in 2008. The cut—which weighs in at a whopping 25 ounces and arrives with soup, salad, and choice of potato—was named after the publication whose 1972 story by writer Calvin Trillin placed the restaurant in sight of the public eye nationally. The menu also includes lobster tail, house surf ‘n’ turf specialties, pork chops, and chicken-fried steak. Guests can sip libations such as Boulevard Brewing Company's chocolate ale at the bar, which itself features a suspended model-train track and live singers harmonizing with the tiny train whistles every Friday night.
Since throwing open their eatery’s doors in 2006, the Wing Busters clan has made it their mission to treat every customer like family. The chefs glaze crispy wings in 46 distinct sauces and seasonings, adding doses of garlic-parmesan, hickory-smoke-barbecue, or incendiary habanero sauce that enables diners to singe their own eyebrows with a single breath. They also craft po' boys and beefy burgers to order, plus down-home sides including jalapeño hush puppies and okra.
After ordering from the counter, guests can mosey over to one of the four-seat tables speckling the snug dining area. Dangling pennants adorn the walls alongside an array of framed pictures, memorabilia-filled shadowboxes, and freshly inspected fire extinguishers.
