Cows, like bureaucracies, are divided into a confusing hierarchy of sectors used to determine the quality of each cut. Get the best cut with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of steak and barbecue fare at Red River Steakhouse in McLean. Known for its black Angus steaks, prime rib, and catfish, Red River Steakhouse serves up grilled Texan staples in the spirit of the Wild West. Guests are greeted by a warm dining room and walls decked with old license plates representative of Route 66. While it offers lighter options ($3.99–$6.99), salads ($3.99–$8.99), and sides ($1.99), the meatery boasts an impressive menu sizzling with juicy steaks, burgers, and chicken dishes. Sink into a classic, 12 oz. Cowboy rib eye ($17.99) or seek the savory secrets of the golden-fried catfish ($11.99). Every Friday begins with an eight-hour, special-rub rib smoking, readying the succulent sectors of meat for later diners and ancient beasts seeking their weekly offerings. Saturday mornings start similarly, except the prime rib is the main smoke suspect. Entrees are encored with a complimentary dessert of cobbler for extra palate placation.
Red River Steakhouse
Red River Steakhouse looks like it jumped straight off the reels of a Western film: its raw-wood façade opens to a rustic interior with paintings of rolling grasslands, red barns, and horse-drawn carriages. On the tables, cowboy boots serve as vases for bright sunflowers or footwear for men with no name. In the kitchen, chefs bread and cook chicken-fried steak on flat-top grills, season racks of ribs with signature rubs, and on weekends, slow smoke pork ribs and prime ribs. The catering side of the operation offers similar fare, including aged Black Angus rib eyes, sirloin kebabs, and prime rib. With confidence in their cuisine, the caterers offer a 120 percent satisfaction guarantee or money back plus a discount on the next order.
