Mr. Benny's Steak and Lobster House is a straightforward dining affair with two equally opulent locations serving up the eternal culinary soulmates of surf and turf. The extensive menus for Matteson and Mokena differ slightly, though the sizzling protein patties served at both locations are of a like mind. Sate burgeoning grumbles with an appetizer of frog legs ($7.95 Matteson, $8.95 Mokena)—petite, lightly breaded, and fried to such deliciousness that enchanted princes will be salivating to the point of requiring a salivation bucket. Titular steak fare is never far from hand, including an 18 oz. bone-in rib-eye ($37.95 Matteson, $32.95 Mokena). In Mokena you can order 2–8 oz. pork chops ($19.95) served grilled, vesuvio, or marsala, and Matteson serves up a 16 oz. pork-chop porterhouse ($21.95) topped with roasted bell peppers and a red-wine reduction.

The kitchens at Bogart's Charhouse radiate tantalizing aromas of grilled meat as the walls grab guests' attention with black-and-white tributes to Bogie. The restaurant's meaty steaks range from 10 ounces to 4 pounds on dinner plates, and lunch guests can dig into a Bogie bacon cheeseburger, or a low-calorie plate of cold turkey. Sliced beef or lasagna catering plates can satisfy appetites at off-site events, such as office parties or a monthly tribute to the oppressive giants that rule one's neighborhood.

In a venue first opened in 1925, experienced chefs at Glenwood Oaks Rib & Chop House answer meaty cravings with a menu of hand-cut steaks and hearty American fare. Artichoke-fritter appetizers ($6) sport a layer of rich béarnaise sauce to comfort french-fried artichoke hearts waiting cynically for diners to break them. Baby-back ribs ($18 at lunch; $22.95 at dinner) slowly cook in a customized oven filled with hickory smoke to create slabs Chicago magazine called “juicy, tender, and clinging to the bone.” During dinner, guests can request the roast prime rib of beef in the Chop House’s traditional cut ($31), or "Pecos style" ($25)—sliced and finished on the grill to combine the roast's tenderness with rugged char tattoos normally found on steak.

The chefs at Luby's Pub & Steakhouse coat sweet jumbo shrimp in house-made coconut batter, bake orange roughy in herb butter, and char-grill juicy burgers with onions for dinners, banquets, and custom catering. In the dining area, veal parmesan nestled on plates of angel-hair pasta shares tables with slow-roasted portions of prime rib au jus and farm-raised blackened catfish. Diners may also opt to sip cocktails on the outdoor patio during the summer months, when the sun is extra fiery.

Windy-city visitors can delight in the classic Chicago hot dog and the savory polish sausage (each around $2.29–$2.99, depending on location), each nestled underneath mustard, relish, onions, tomatoes, pickles, and the looming shadow of oscillating skyscrapers. Other handheld fare includes the meatball and corned-beef sandwiches, which can be upgraded with a variety of extras, including red sauce, sweet peppers, hot mix (all free on sandwiches, extra as a side), feta cheese, and bacon. A fleet of made-from-scratch soups and salads is also available, and includes such options as the hearty cream-of-chicken rice soup and the large garden salad ($2.09–$3.99).
