Al Biernats in Addison has a bone in ribeye that's off the chain flavorful and one of the best steaks I've ever had, it's not cheap though, $55.xx steak only.

I hit up Saltgrass about once a week for some decent steak...

I haven't lived in Arlington in a long time, but I visit every now and then, and the churrascuria over on Cooper and 20 (Chamas Do Brazil) is pretty decent. Not a true steakhouse atmosphere or experience, but if you like meat, it's good.

The Keg in the Highlands is decent, as well.

Neither one of those hold a candle to a legit place like Bob's or Pappas Bros, but I'm not sure if there is anything like that in Arlington. If there is, I wanna know, too!

I've never been, but I've heard good things about Mercury Chophouse

*edit* - I've never been to this one, but I have been to the one in downtown Ft Worth, when it was owned by MCrowd (Mi Cocina). It was really good back then.

Got some friends fying in for the fight this weekend and are staying in Arlington, I'll just tell them to take an uber to a nice restaurant in another city.

Man get them out to fort worth or Dallas. Arlington sucks at the wholesale level. Actually the st Patty's day stuff will be pretty rowdy on Greenville if they want to see how its done...and probably miss the fight as well.

If they're going for Garcia tell them to stay away from Desoto.

Also tell them to change their hotel arrangements to a less shitty town.

Bob’s (Grapevine) Al Biernat’s (Dallas), or Pappas Bros (Dallas), Nick & Sam’s (Dallas).

Good steak in Arlington doesn’t exist.

If they want to drive west instead, both Grace and Del Friscos in Fort Worth are solid.

Iím in Mansfield so we end up in the Highlands fairly often when itís time to eat. Iíve driven by The Keg several times and just havenít been willing to try it.
We arenít expecting world class steak in this area, but Iíd be happy with decent in a pinch.

I guess I'm spoiled. I love cooking it myself. It seems everywhere I've tried has been total shit. On a side note it's getting harder and harder to find anywhere that has a real chicken fried steak. It's all processed prebreaded throw in the microwave crap. There is a place out here at PK that serves a real chicken fry and it's pretty dang good called lake time cafe but they are only open until 2pm.
