Steak Paradise: What's your "go to" steakhouse?

I'm watching Steak Paradise on the Travel Channel and it got me to thinking. Where do you go for a consistently great steak? Plus, where did you have the "best steak ever" in your culinary adventures?

For me:

Most consistently great steak = Ruth's Chris

Best "steak" ever = Prime Rib at a restaurant on the Cal/Nev border next to Lake Tahoe. The name escapes me, but it was at a casino that Sinatra frequented.

I know prime rib isn't a steak by definition, but that meal was so good it has stuck in my mind for a decade.

Cattlemen's Steakhouse in the OKC Stockyards. It's 100+ yrs old and knows how to do it right.

I go there everytime I'm in town. I ask for whatever their Blue Ribbon steak of the day is (usually a Ribeye) and it never disappoints.

I grew up on KC's own "The Golden Ox". It still suits me just fine. There are probably better steaks to be had in this town - but not MUCH better. And all those memories add a lot to the flavor.

Yeah, unless they're grilling up some dry-aged steaks or taking the freshest blue-ribbon beef they can find (like literally right off the hoof in the stockyards and aged on-site), they're full of shit.

I know that I can make a better steak in my back yard than I can get at Applebees or some other slophouse like that. But an elite steakhouse has cuts of beef that you're going to have to have flown in to get quality that's anywhere close.

J. Gilbert's or J. Alexander's when in KC. Denver Chop House when home. There's a place called Shannon's in St. Louis that used to be great, but it sucks now.

I go to any place that isn't a cookie-cutter chain. Not that it's impossible to get a good tasting steak there but who really wants $8 "" cooking their beef?

I had a ribeye and McCormick and Schmicks a few weeks back, and it was outstanding.
I very rarely get a steak anywhere, because they usually suck.

But, this was my first high-end steak in a LONG time and it was awesome. PRior to that, I had a steak at Herford house, and it sucked rocks. Horrible. I then swore off ordering steaks at restaraunts, but gave M&S a shot - glad I did. I'll definitely go back.

I feel like JA's is on a slightly lower tier as far as steaks go, so it's our 2nd resort when we feel like steak. I like their prime rib sammich for lunch, though. Nice and bloody.

Morton's as a chain and maybe overall.

In Denver, there's a restaurant called Sullivan's that I think is local, and it's as good as Morton's.

This is so true. Just buying a "choice" steak at the grocery won't get the best results. My butcher sells aged beef, but it's expensive as hell. I bought prime cuts from him and dry aged them (as best I could) and they were really good. Still, not like the best steakhouse, but pretty close.
