Festejo Peruvian Grill
7007 Bandera Road #12, (210) 701-5883
Sure, everyone makes a big fuss about Brazilian steak, but have you ever tried Peruvian steak? Stop by Festejo for tallarines verdes (Peruvian-style pesto pasta topped with steak) or bistec a la pobre (Angus steak served with white rice, over-easy egg and fried plantain).

Fogo de Chão Brazilian Steakhouse
849 E Commerce St., (210) 227-1700,

Boudro’s On the River Walk
421 E Commerce St., (210) 224-8484,
Come for the steaks, stay for the drinks. If you order anything besides the fire-grilled Angus filet + lobster tail with a prickly pear margarita, you’ve done it all wrong.

Silo Prime
1133 Austin Hwy., (210) 824-8686,

Embers Wood Fire Grill & Bar
Multiple locations, (210) 562-3075,

18 Oaks
23808 Resort Pkwy., (210) 491-5825,
The cool thing about 18 Oaks is that your steak order depends on which ranch you want your meat to come from. Not really, but you’ll be able to find out where the cow on your plate came from, which is sad but sweet. Enjoy amped up sides like truffle cream corn and the goat cheese potato gratin.

Ichiban Steak & Asian Fusion
8601 Huebner Road, (210) 641-1234

Louie Italian Restaurant
4979 NW Loop 410, (210) 481-4360,
