Red River Steakhouse's chefs know more than how to cook a steak; they also know exactly which steaks to cook. They start with prime cuts of USDA choice-grade midwestern beef, charbroiling the fine red meat at 1,200 degrees and sealing in the savory juices. The steak is paired with the customer's choice of soup, salad, or another delicious side, such as herb mashed potatoes or vegetables du jour. It's topped with a pad of steakhouse butter, which slowly melts on its way to the table. The steakhouse also prepares a selection of seafood, poultry, and pasta, such as teriyaki-style Ahi tuna, as complements to their signature dishes.
