Dunston’s Still Serving Up Tasty Beef on the Cheap

dunston1by Steven Doyle

Probably not a week goes by that a reader asks where to find a good haunch of beef. We invariably tell them one of the many steakhouses across the Dallas skyline depending on where they live. We love Nick and Sam’s. It could be that they pass out caviar like it was candy, and sincerely… isn’t it? We also love Pappas Brothers in all their wine goodness.

Knife has  some awesome steak values $25 and under. Chamberlain’s Steak and Chop House also is a staff favorite, and we love his cigar room. Plus you get Richard Chamberlain, and that always makes for fun evening. We have frequented SER more times than we care to admit (OK, at least 25 times).   Continue reading
