You may ask to sit in the dining room at Ill Forks, but you'll have to be specific—this swanky steakhouse features seven separate dining areas. Wherever the host leads you, you're privy to a doubly specialized menu replete with USDA Prime cuts of new york strip and prime rib, along with Chilean seabass and cold-water rock lobster tail.

If the “Tortoise and the Hare” taught us anything, it’s that slow and steady wins the race. And at Tony's Barbecue & Steak House, slow and steady cooking has ordinary dinners beat with pork ribs and brisket that spend a good 12 hours sizzling over South Texas hickory. The barbecue meals are joined by hearty steaks, smoked ham and turkey plates, and quail dinners. Many of the menu items are cooked with one of founder Antonio Ruiz's secret recipes for dirty rice, barbecue sauce, and pork and brisket rubs. Before opening the first Tony’s Barbecue in Baytown, Ruiz spent 15 years developing his craft at a local barbecue restaurant in Houston.
Some steakhouses are born when someone is passionate about steak and about serving happy customers. The décor, the staff and the technique just kind of fall in place. Others, like father and son team Vic and Tilman Fertitta, research and studied for years (if one may consider traveling around and eating good food hard) before venturing into making the perfect steakhouse. When they did, they made Vic and Anthony’s Steakhouse. Cozy and comfortable, Vic and Anthony’s serve only the finest to their customers and in such a way that it’s almost edible art on a plate. In their travels, Vic and Tilman realized that the best steakhouses had an incredible wine list. Never ones to forget a good attribute, Vic and Anthony’s have an impressive wine list too. The attention to detail, meticulous planning and dedication to happy customers has led Vic and Anthony’s Steakhouse to win more than their fair share of awards and, no doubt, many more to come.
