ALC Steaks (Austin Land & Cattle)
Best Steaks in TexasThis is one of the best steakhouses I have ever been to. The food is outstanding and the service is top notch too, but could be a bit better. The food however, is pretty much perfect. I highly recommend the ribeye because of its flavor, thickness, and consistency. The meat is very flavorful and juicy. The pairing with the steak sauce is perfect, and comes with a bit of tang, a bit of spice, and a bit of salty goodness. The flavor combination melts in your mouth and creates a fantastic experience start to finish.
Each steak also comes with warm soft bread, sweet carrots, tender spinach, and excellent soft mashed potatoes. Everything here is worth experiencing, and the ambience makes it great for a date.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food; light on ambianceDinner was excellent and very well served in a very "Austin" setting. Will go back.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMNever DisappointsThis was perhaps my 5th time eating at ALC, and for good reason. If you really want a steak, eat here. I take my family here when they visit as well as my peers when business associates are in town. Probably the best steak for the money in Austin with service to keep you coming back as well!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMSkip ALL others - Go to ALC!Upon arrival you walk in and the bar area is hopping. Then they take you to your table which is a bit quieter. It has a very nice ambiance and is certainly a well visited establishment. The food was FANTASTIC! ALL of it and there dinner rolls are great! May even to good! I had a filet which was cooked perfect and could have been cut with a fork it was so tender! The vegetables spinach and carrots were also cooked just right. Many places kill vegetables and they know what they are doing. Everything was seasoned with just the right amount. Not to much but enough to enhance the natural flavor of the desired dish. They far exceed the nationally know places like Morton's and McCormick's - Go to ALC!4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday girl pleased!Overall excellent experience.
We were impressed with the food
except for a couple of sides which
were sub-par. Carrots were limp and
tasteless. Spinach was an afterthought.
Appetizer and main dish were superb!
Robin gave excellent service!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing Experience!Incredible food, great atmosphere/ambiance/decor, solid service, amazing drinks!! The decor and look and feel of the place was super cool with little nooks and crannies of tables, lots of cow and horse and cattle art and of course, the Duke. Excellent cocktails and the steaks were mindblowing. Appetizer of beer-battered mushrooms with chipotle aioli was great, as was our desserts of tiramisu and chocolate pie. Exquisite all around and worth the money!!! Best steakhouse in Austin!!!!!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service, food, andExcellent service, food, and wine.

Every thing was outstanding4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMMakes you realize how steakMakes you realize how steak places need not be so pompous & uncool...food is just excellent without all of the usual steakhouse silliness4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMMmmm.... Cow meat.Thick steak, delicious sides, water always filled. Buffalo pork chops - amazing. A little on the pricey side - but, anyone in the know, knows this is one of the finest restaurants in town. The price was as expected. Delicious food, good service and great atmosphere.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Steak, Great ServiceWent here for a nice dinner after landing a job in Austin. I made a reservation for one, and got there about 15 minutes early and was seated immediately. I had a glass of water filled soon after sitting down, and ordered my food when the waitress came over to take my drink order. Not 10 minutes later I was greeted with a great looking 16oz ribeye accompanied by a Gorgonzola butter sauce and assorted veggies.
This wasn't the best steak I've ever had, but it was way up there. Paired very well with a Shiner Bock. The service was great, always there when I needed them and not intrusive at all. I was in and out within about 40 minutes, and never felt rushed.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth tryingI am a native Austinite and have never been here so decided to take my husband for his birthday, we went fairly early so the place wasn't that crowded so noise level was tolerant. I ordered a Moscow mule and honestly didn't care for their version there was only ginger flavoring & not ginger beer and mostly vodka so I didn't finish mine. I ordered a filet and my husband the ribeye both of our steaks were cooked to perfection and they were seasoned just right, my steak melted in my mouth. It was overall a great experience and we thoroughly enjoyed it. It was nice to have the sides come with the meal as opposed a la carte at our normal steak restaurant, made for a much cheaper meal. Service was good as well, very attentive.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding food, fine serviceMy wife and I went to ALC for our anniversary. This was as good a meal as we've ever had; really outstanding. It's pricier than most places we go, but the food is outstanding and the service was really good. This is now our go-to place for special occasions. Comping the dessert was a nice touch.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
