North Star Supper Club

The North Star Supper club has been in the same location since the 1940s and they have been serving great food all that time. It is the best place that no one has heard of. Lots of locals have never heard of it, but those that know of it keep it on the down low so they can go eat and not fight lines or any thing like that.

If you like your meals in a place where you won't have to shout over the din of other customers shouting, this is your place. Give it a try, and I am sure you will be a regular soon after. I like the filet with steak fries and chicken gravy.

Topeka Steakhouse

Topeka Steakhouse is one of those places you can go no matter how you are dressed, no worries about having a tie or jacket on, or any of that pretention. A t-shirt, flip flops and shorts work just fine.

Topeka Steakhouse is located just east of town in an area called Tecumseh, and they serve lots of people every night. They have two different types of dining room, one is huge room full of tables, surrounded with booths. The other side of the business offers seating that is a bit more secluded. If you go there, tell the greeter that you would prefer the smaller dining area if that is your preference.

They serve steaks, prime rib, fish and fried chicken, and many other things.(lobster, shrimp, oysters) The prime rib is available Friday and Saturday. They also have all you can eat items on certain nights, such as Wednesday they have all you can eat fried chicken, or fish on certain week nights.

A common side item around here is a bowl of chicken gravy served with your steak. I usually get this, but I have a feeling my doctor would have a fit if he saw this, but there is something really satisfying about the mixture of the steaks juices and gravy. I dip my fries in the gravy too.

I was used to this at local steakhouses when I was growing up, then when we moved to Florida for 10 years, I could not find a place there that served any type of gravy except the dark brown stuff that went with mashed potatoes. I was really happy when we moved back to the Midwest and found Topeka had not changed their menu.

Unfortunately, the Topeka Steakhouse has closed for business.

Longhorn Steakhouse

Longhorn Steakhouse is one of the chain places on the Wanamaker corridor, and even as a chain, they put out consistently good food.

My wife loves their prime rib, and also their specialty steak that features a big grilled mushroom coupled with a filet. Longhorn also serves fish, and while I have not had it myself, I have heard others rave about the salmon.

They also offer a lot of different appetizers that vary by season. I can't remember an app we have had their that was bad.

Texas Roadhouse

Texas Roadhouse is part of the Roadhouse Chain of Restaurants. All have a common theme, buckets of peanuts to munch on while you wait, and they encourage you to throw the shells on the floor. My wife just cannot handle this, she thinks it is disgusting that they have people throw things on the floor.

She manages to get over being grossed out about the peanut shells if I tell her she can get the prime rib. There are many places that offer prime rib, but there are very few that actually serve something that is cooked properly, and that half the weight of the slice isn't fat. My wife loves the prime rib at Texas Roadhouse, and that is why I am including yet another chain in my list.

They also have other steaks that are very good. My only gripe with the place is it always seems packed to the gills. I am a big guy, and I don't like people bumping me while I eat. It works fine if we can find a corner table, but some times that just isn't possible.

Regardless of my own hangups, if you can get in the door, they have pretty good grub, and you won't go home hungry.

      Nicely done! It's nice to have a guide to the various steakhouses one can choose from in one place. The only thing missing in my life now is a guide to local places for mac-and-cheese. But I guess it's less of a star- hahaa!
