J.Alexander's is served in only 12 states across the country.

as of today, this has been the best center cut filet I have ever eaten - ever.

when I asked for it pink, they brought it to me pink !!!!!!











Perfection!!!

Noooo, they only have locations in Houston and San Antonio

I'd rate it a 5.5/10. I wouldn't recommend it.

Aww man Litos' pictures have me hankering for some meat now. I'll have to make a trip to one of our resident steakhouses tonight

One batch of dough is good for six pizzas so you can get creative from time to time.

Damn that plate looks Michelin star-caliber. This is the one fatal flaw of Austin. We have decent restaurants but we don't have any Michelin star restaurants and maybe 1 or 2 Michelin star-caliber restaurants.

I think one restaurant one time served Wagyu or Kobe beef but it's pretty rare (not the meat temperature, but the probability of occurrence ).

i think la folie is a 1 star. honestly the Michelin system is very biased in terms of how they rate and where they choose to publish guides. i think a lot of 1 stars are better than 2 or 3 stars, and a lot of unranked restaurants are better than ones with stars. just eat good food wherever it is and be happy

you have to be careful with wagyu served in the states. 99% of it is domestic wagyu which is crossbred with angus. purebred wagyu from japan is hard to come by so you gotta ask the server if you see it on the menu. the difference is astronomical. you gotta at least try real wagyu once.

I'm usually the one that cooks dinner but I'm no chef. It is something I would like to delve into at some point though...

Women are good cooks, but men make the best chefs, and chefs make the best food.
