6 years ago I had a hand tendered, butter soaked, grass fed, free range tenderloin at the Omni in San Antonio. It was the best steak I have ever had and it ruined me for all steak. I have been on a quest since that...More

It was reasonable for a steak house. There are cheap things on the menu like catfish which is great too. My peppered strip was in the 30's but came with a salad, bread and a side.
