PureWow: The 12 Best Steakhouses in Chicago, Ranked

Because sometimes a girl needs her meat and potatoes.

As Midwesterners, we typically aren’t ones to brag, but we’ve got to give ourselves props where props are due: No city does the steakhouse quite like Chicago. Here, 12 temples to beef that will get your mouth watering faster than you can say “filet.”



The ultimate in old school, Gene & Georgetti is a certified Chicago institution. Sidle up to a bar stool and feast your eyes (and mouth, duh) on rare-as-they-come steaks and original side orders like the New York Times-approved “garbage” salad.
