The best steakhouse in Georgia gets its cuts from Chicago

How to grill the perfect steak There's never a bad time to throw a juicy steak on the grill. But before you fire up the grill, here are some tips. It's all about the heat. Use enough heat to set in the flavor and perfect texture - without burning it. Cooking over charcoal? Heat the coals with a chimney starter or electric starter. Cooking on a gas grill? Heat it to high with all the burners on. Reduce the flame (or turn one or two burners off) as needed for medium-hot cooking. For the most accurate grill

There’s no shortage of steakhouses in the nation.

From chain spots to specialty restaurants, you can get your fill of porterhouse, filet mignon and T-bone steak at a variety of places.

Eat This, Not That recently compiled a list of the best steakhouses in all 50 states.

“Perfectly pan-seared, seasoned, and tender, steak satisfies the most carnivorous of appetites,” the website said. “Whether you like it super rare or just a little on the done side, we’ve assembled the very best steakhouses each state has to offer. Get ready for a road trip!”

The site was tight-lipped on the methodology behind this list, but it largely appeared to stick to steakhouses that were unique to the specific locations versus chain spots such as LongHorn and Outback.

In Georgia, the best steakhouse is Kevin Rathbun Steak.

“Serving Chicago’s Allen Brothers steaks, this Atlanta restaurant has racked up accolades from media across the United States. The menu focuses on a chef-driven menu and local produce in addition to those wonderful cuts of beef,” Eat This, Not That wrote.

Kevin Rathbun Steak opened in 2007 following the opening of other steakhouses including his namesake Rathbun’s and Krog Bar — both Inman Park spots shuttered last year.

Kevin Rathbun Steak was the Kansas-born owner’s biggest endeavor to date, according to the restaurant’s about page. It was built from an old cotton warehouse on Krog Street. In addition to steaks from the Windy City, more than 50 items are on the menu, including alternative meat options, lots of seafood and more than 15 side dishes.

It’s all part of what Rathbun called a “new modernized atmosphere and menu.”

The steakhouse has been recognized for its excellence before. The former Details magazine included it on a list of the best new steakhouses in America. More recently in 2019, The Daily Meal included it among its list of “America’s 50 Best Steakhouses.”
