This steakhouse screams “chain” from the wall of blinking pagers stashed behind the hostess stand to the tchotchke-chocked decor. (Think Stetsons, cowboy boots, cow skulls.) The mid-priced outlet serves the same sad salads and cream-laden dips as others in its genre, but the “legendary” steaks are cooked perfectly to temperature
and seasoned just right. The exterior of the Outlaw rib eye wasn’t quite seared, and the meat was surrounded by an excess of gristly fat, but “Flo’s” filet was just as tender as its description promised. Niche: T.G.I. Friday’s with steak and a Wild West tableau.
Signature steak: Seven-ounce “Flo’s” filet. The tab: Steaks $13.49 (eight-ounce sirloin) to $23.99 (22-ounce porterhouse); sides average $2.24. Wine list: A short all-American list built around value, not selection or prestige. Top cabernet is Beringer Knight’s Valley, a steal at $39.
