Tom Perini's steakhouse, in a converted barn on his family's ranch just outside Abilene, is famed for its 22-ounce "cowboy rib-eye" and other heroic slabs of good Texas beef, but burger lovers swear by the establishment's grilled half-pound burger, laden with Cheddar or provolone, grilled mushrooms, green chiles, and onions. — Colman Andrews


  • One of my favorite restaurants! Tom and his team give their guests delicious food, friendly and excellent service in a unique dining environment. Sit on the patio--it's the best seat in the house!
  • You can't beat a Perini's ribeye. But the best way to enjoy it is to ask for it to be "peppered". Un. Be. LIEVABLE! And...get the zucchini.
  • Amazing filet! Melts in your mouth.
  • Thus my absolute favorite steak place in the country. Best double cut prime rib Ive ever had. Pleasantly surprised to find Camus wine on the mostly Texas wine list. Great food great service.
  • Great prime rib.
  • Steaks are out of control, but get the green chile hominy if it's the last thing you do.
  • Went for the Ranch Burger which was great. I loved their salted herb butter and chocolate cake.
  • Prime rib is the best with a side of hominy... Delish!
  • Hominy with peppers and bacon
  • Best burger I've ever had. Hands down. Without a doubt.
  • Get the hominy!!! The chopped salad is amazing. My kids loved the fried catfish.
  • Reservations are helpful & sometimes the only way! Steaks, sides, catfish, jalapeo bites, bread pudding.
  • Out side dining is quite comfortable after sunset
  • Bah. Server told me to try their Sunday lunch and I was not impressed. I guess being from the south I should not have expected it to be great.
  • Ranch Burger
  • Note: Burger
  • Food & Wine recommends the Ranch Burger, topped with mushrooms, onions, green chiles, and choice of cheddar or provolone.
  • the bread pudding is so delicious
  • Truly a laid back atmosphere, scrumptious quail legs, raving green chili hominy, melt in your mouth prime rib, and a perfect ending w bread pudding and a bottle of Caymus Vinyards Cab sauvignon. OMG
  • One of Texas Gov. Rick Perry's favorite indulgences is a juicy ribeye from Perini Ranch!
