As we all know, steakhouses are some of the most expensive restaurants around. If you’ve got a hankering for a nice dry-aged Prime New York strip, you’re going to have to be prepared to drop at least 40 bucks on it. But this doesn’t mean that you can’t get a decent steak if you’re on a budget, not by a long shot. Some steakhouses are downright cheap and don’t skimp on the quality either.
Even the most unremarkable of restaurants always seems to have a steak of some sort on the menu, usually geared toward suckers who have money to burn. We’ll be the first to tell you that it’s not especially difficult to find a restaurant that sells some sort of reasonably-priced steak; what is tough is to find a steakhouse that’s downright affordable across the board.
These steakhouses are in general pretty casual affairs, and a visit will set you up with a very nice steak for a very reasonable price. We’re not including chain steakhouses in this list (for a ranking of our favorite casual chain steakhouses, click here); these are all independently-owned and operated, and committed to serving some seriously good steaks at price that’s much lower than what you’ll see at your average steakhouse.
