i visited chicago steakhouse with 2 friends.
they both ordered some steak and i ordered some pan-fried fish.
the waiter had a hilarious fake accent and took great effort to compliment each of us on our choice of dish. nevertheless, service was amusing and more than friendly.
food came fast enough, but serving sizes were small beyond belief. my fish was mind-blowingly salty, had to drink loads of ice water to neutralize it. overall food was good, though desserts not value for money. we didnt even bother ordering desserts. i reccomend hopping over to burger king for their hershey's sundae pie ($2.40)
word of caution: please be careful while handling the hot plate because both my friends got scalded badly, one after the other. one of my friends developed an instant blister which had him whining throughout dinner, dessert at bk and the cab fare home. yes it hurt that much.
Just beside Subway, Chicago's Steakhouse looks like a good place for good western food. On top of that, the word "steakhouse" immediately catches my attention! First thing you do, of course, is to check out the prices on the menu. Fortunate for people like me, the price is actually absolutely reasonable! Plus, the waiters there are really friendly and welcoming, it just makes you want to walk right in.
I sat down and took my time trying to decide on what to eat. They have main courses like steaks, chicken, fish and lamb! What a variety! I would say their Meat Lovers' dish really did look enticing though I didn't take that. As someone who's hunting for cheap and good steak, I was almost certain before I stepped in that I was gonna order steak. Seeing that a Sirloin Steak with mushroom sauce(70z) was only $10.90, I thought "hey! why not right?" The steak is available in 3 different portions and comes with baked potato and fresh greens too.
One thing I really like about the place is that despite the fact that they were pretty packed that day, your orders still came up fast. But to be honest, fast doesn't mean good.
Although I was real surprised when my steak came up so soon, one look at it and I was thoroughly disappointed. For $10.90, the steak being more than palm size was really a good bargain. However, it was not done very well. I ordered a medium rare but I think I got myself a medium instead. I feel that the thickness of the steak really makes a difference and if dining places wanna make their steak look bigger on the surface, even though it's thinner, (which was what they did), they should know how to do their steaks well too, in order to prevent over-cooking. The mushroom sauce tasted rather ordinary also, with one small slice of shitake mushroom on the steak, as though to say: This really is mushroom sauce, in case you're wondering. The sides were rather pathetic. The baked potato was not even bigger than an apple. Yes, it's more like the size of a plum or prune. Pathetic serving of sour cream and no bacon bits (until you ask for it). The fresh greens was about 5 pieces of french beans, 1 cauliflower and 3 pieces of carrots. Pathetic, once again..
However, the non-steak stuff my friends ordered seemed rather appetizing. It looks more value for money too. At a dollar more, the Fish and Chips does look more filling and appealing than the steak I had (at a steakhouse).
Oh and you get free iced water if you dine there. Not bad eh?
Because of the reasonable prices, I would still consider dining here again but I will not order steaks anymore. Of course if you had a bigger budget, you could try their premium steaks, it could be better. But on the whole, the above was my experience with a $10.90 steak. Disappointing.
