Without steak, most Americans wouldn’t be able to justify owning such terrifyingly sharp steak knives, much less an entire rack of steak guns. Get a chance to use them with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of steaks, chops, and drinks at Jamil's Steakhouse.
Jamil's menu combines Middle Eastern and North African influences with traditional American steaks, chops, and seafood. Savor the succulence of prime, aged steak, such as the Kansas City strip sirloin ($28.99) or the 16-ounce center-cut rib eye ($27.99). Plunder the briny depths of Jamil's seafood menu, in which fried catfish strips ($18.99) and Norwegian grilled salmon ($23.99) duke it out for undersea supremacy. The surf-and-turf option (market price) combines the best of Earth's edible surfaces, as does the filet and jumbo fried-shrimp platter ($29.99). Every entree comes with a smorgasbord of sumptuous sides, including tabouli, hummus, cabbage rolls, smoked bologna, baked potatoes, and a relish tray. Children under 10 can order off of Jamil's kids' menu, featuring munchkin-approved morsels that don't require handling razor-sharp cutlery.
The restaurant's décor is a throwback to steakhouses of yore, with dark woods, rich, red walls, and stained-glass lighting fixtures accenting the full bar. The close-knit, candlelit tables make this a great spot to challenge a first date to a hands-free lobster-eating competition or to bring friends with suspected protein deficiencies.

- Established in 1964 in what was once a house, Jamil's has creaky floor boards that contrast with the crisp white table linens, and the attentive service reminds us of the manners of yesteryear. – Gayot
- They steaks are aged, prime cuts, cooked over mesquite, and just perfect. The porterhouse is just huge, the rib-eye is excellent, the filet is to die for. – TheKeef, Urbanspoon
