Tomahawk at Maple & Ash ChicagoChicagoans are very serious about their steak. With ample access to some of the finest beef in the country, just about every restaurant in the city has a steak on the menu. But with dozens of steakhouses in Chicago, how can one choose? The abundance of options can easily lead to analysis paralysis. There are many lists ranking Chicago's top steakhouses, but this list features some of Chicago's most unique options.

Gene & Georgetti

Since the restaurant first opened in 1941, Gene & Georgetti have been serving up some of the best steaks the city has to offer. Help Chicago's oldest steakhouse celebrate its 75th anniversary with an order from their special menu. From the Filet Mignon to the Chicken alla Joey, taste why this steakhouse has been a sizzling success!


With Father's Day around the corner and in the thick of backyard barbeque season, my insatiable appetite for pan-friend meat is turned up to 11. Oh, and it's Hary Caray's third annual Steak Week. Yes, that's a thing, and I can barely stand the excitement. I'm seriously THIS close to lathering my keyboard in South Carolina Mustard Sauce and taking the thing down like a grilled Top Sirloin. Instead, I'll use these delicious looking keys to pen you a roundup of Chicago's top steakhouses. You're welcome. And to my keyboard, you're lucky. This time.
