Setting chicken fried steak aside, options for good ol’ juicy cuts of meat are plentiful in Austin. The city is, after all, obsessed with all meaty things.

Here are the best spots for steak in the city, from rib-eye, wagyu, sirloin, flank, filet mignon, New York, and so much more. Find iconic steaks from ALC Steaks, head straight to source with butcher shop/restaurants Dai Due and Salt & Time, go for all-time classics from Jeffrey’s, seek out French takes at Justine’s, and more.

For more protein, find Austin's iconic meat dishes with Eater's handy guide here, and explore the city's best barbecue, burgers, ribs, and fried chicken.

As with all businesses, be sure to call ahead to make sure each restaurant is still open or if there are updates on current offerings and service models, as things are changing constantly. Wear a mask, tip well, and if you’re ordering delivery, try to order directly from the restaurants themselves.

Health experts consider dining out to be a high-risk activity for the unvaccinated; it may pose a risk for the vaccinated, especially in areas with substantial COVID transmission. The latest CDC guidance is here; find a COVID-19 vaccination site here.
