  • Possibly the best steak in Dallas
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 8/29/2014
    I have been to Pappas several times over the years and it is always exceptional steak. It is melt in your mouth tender and has wonderful flavor. I have tried multiple cuts, and everything has been fabulous. Over the years I have tried multiple other steak restaurants, but I don't know that any are better...Some may be close to as good, but when asked where in Dallas has the best steak, my first thought is Pappas.

    We tried Pappas Bros. for the first time for Restaurant Week, and quite frankly it was an all-around perfect experience. The service was impeccable - our server had great recommendations for both food and wine, someone was always around if we needed anything. The food, even on the lower-priced Restaurant Week menu, was really great. All of us had a wonderful time and expect to return soon.

    This is one of the better places to eat a steak in Dallas if you are a connoisseur of good red meat. The wine list is extensive but pricey (just like most Dallas steakhouses). One of my favorite wines was marked up 4x of what I can buy it. Most restaurants have a sommelier's special but not here.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/25/2014
    We visited for restaurant week and couldn't have been more happy. Turtle soup was great, the house salad with avocado ranch was one of the best house salads I have ever had, the steak was so tender it almost melted in my mouth. The steak was also one of the best meals I have had. The cheesecake and key lime pie were also top notch. Our server Theresa was on top of her game and the food was served very quickly. Not a single complaint.

    Service was not up to par. Our waiter only checked on us two or three times. Steaks were, hmmm... just didn't seem the same. Avocado Ranch dressing was SWEET. Scalloped taters and lobster bisque were great. Probably won't go next year for Restaurant week. Party of 8 should have had more attention.

    We went to Pappas Bros. Steakhouse to celebrate our 41st anniversary. Reservations were filling up for Saturday so we opted for 6:00 pm instead of a late night time. The valet was friendly and professional. The hostess greeted us and found our reservation and we were seated immediately. We were surprised at the number of people already dining at the early hour. We ordered wine from the sommelier who was very knowledgeable. Our waitress was excellent. We were told about the specials and she answered all of our questions. Hot bread was bought out right away.The salads were very good and served with two strips of crispy beacon crossed over the top. The steaks were cooked to perfection. I had the NY strip and my wife had the fillet.

    I know you have to fill our table quickly when it's restaurant week, but let us finish one course before bringing the next one. I was asked 4 times if they could take my salad away. No, I'm not finished yet! Just leave my steak sitting on the table. So annoying because the food was excellent!

    Our dining experience was exceptional which is usual when we have dinner at Pappas Bros Steakhouse. My wife and daughter both had the lobster which as delicious, my son had the New York strip which he thoroughly enjoyed and he gave me piece of his steak and I found to be cooked perfectly medium and I had the filet was very tender and juicy. All of meals were absolutely delicious. I had the House Salad and everyone else had the Caesar salads which were also tasty and delicious. I has the key lime pie for dessert and everyone else in the family had the cheesecake that we really liked. Our waiter who was named Brian was very attentive to our needs during the whole time we were at the restaurant. The lemon drop martini's were great.

    The food is the best we've found in Texas. The restaurant is cozy, very well organized into nooks and crannies that allow the visitor a choice, i.e., the Wine Room, booths near the bar (our favorite to people watch), the Fireplace Room and main dining room. The service is second to none beginning with very courteous valet parking staff, through the excellent wait staff, to the customer service professionals who thank you for your visit as you leave.

    Pappas Bros was a great location for a family celebration for college send off. Wine by the glass was well priced, deviled eggs with lobster was creative and delicious, and the evening's special was perfect for two hungry boys. The Tuesday night we dined was full of large business groups, so loud.

    Dined on 8/16/2014
    I brought some friends out during the KRLD Restaurant Week so they could experience this great restaurant for the first time. The only two negative things I can think of are...there was a thick and long piece of gristle on the highly recommended New York strip. With the lighting extremely low there was no easy way to "see" the gristle in order to cut it off. A phone flashlight had to be used in order to see well enough to remove it to avoid chewing on another piece and trying to awkwardly dispose of it. I'm sure it was an oversight in the kitchen but it did leave a feeling of the food being less than exquisite which it normally is. Other than that, service, flavors, wine, atmosphere, etc. - excellent!
