“Whether you’re looking for a casual place to enjoy a good piece of beef or a fancier place to take a date or hold a family gathering”
West of Chicago – in suburbs like Schaumburg, Burr Ridge, Oakbrook – you’ll find some of the finest red meat in the world, perfectly prepared by chefs who know what they’re doing. When a good steak is done right, you taste the deeply satisfying goodness of well-raised beef, you appreciate the care that went into cooking the meat with the perfect char and indescribable lush juiciness, and your mind is, quite simply, blown.
Whether you’re looking for a casual place to enjoy a good piece of beef or a fancier place to take a date or hold a family gathering, the western suburbs present a wealth of steakhouse options, sometimes priced a bit below what you’d expect downtown.
Another advantage of western suburban steakhouses is that parking is abundant and usually free-of-charge, and because there’s room to spread out, many of these places offer roomy patios for outdoor dining. Checking out these places will start you wondering why you ever made the trip into the city for steak – and if you live in the city, you may be inspired to take a drive out to the collar counties for dinner.
Here’s a list of the best steakhouses in Chicago’s western suburbs – which is to say, some of the best in the world. Mind-blowing.
