ALC Steaks is an Austin OG and has been winning the steak game since 1993. They offer a variety cuts from rib eye to porterhouse in a relatively casual environment. Because we like to do things differently round these parts, they offer homemade steak sauces to augment their meat mastery. Gorgonzola butter, Maker’s Mark bourbon sauce and jalapeño blue cheese are a few of the add-ons. You can also “enhance” your steak by choosing a certain style—Oscar (jumbo lump crab, spicy hollandaise) or ALC (crusted with peppercorn and blue cheese). Non-steak eaters might opt for ahi tuna, muscovy duck or one of their beautiful salads. For a more affordable night, hit up the Monday through Friday, 5pm to 7pm, happy hour. With $6 martinis and a heavily discounted bar menu, it’s one of the best in the city.
