One of the great things about writing a column like this is I get to eat at a lot of great places. I’m not going to lie, steakhouses have always been near the top of my list when it comes to eating out.
Recently my friend Cris and I were doing a guy’s night out steak dinner. We decided to go to T-Bones Chophouse located inside Red Rock Resort. I’ve been in Las Vegas eight years now and somehow I hadn’t been to T-Bones. That was a mistake on my part.
The minute you walk into the Chophouse you know it’s not your average steakhouse. The décor is elegant but very hip at the same time. If you get a window table you get to look out at the patio bar that overlooks the Red Rock pool. I started off with my go-to appetizer at a good steakhouse, French Onion Soup. At T-Bones, I’m happy to say the soup was right up there with the best of them.
It was time to make our entrée choice and not only did we have to decide on what steak we wanted but what type of beef. T-Bones offers several types of beef to choose from. You can order a Classic Steak that is wet aged a minimum of 28 days. If you want a grass fed steak they offer an 8 oz. filet. Grass fed steaks would be antibiotic and hormone free beef.
They also have Wagyu Beef, which is raised in Colorado. This is the American version of the popular Japanese Beef and is what we both wanted for dinner. We both went with the Strip loin. My steak was excellent and cooked exactly to the temperature I ordered. For our side dishes we went with the Charred Sweet Corn and the House Hash Browns. Both side dishes were good.
Like most fine steakhouses the side dishes were big enough to share. They also have several tempting desserts to satisfy your sweet tooth.
The atmosphere is really impressive, from the bar area to the dining room overlooking the patio and pool. Now I can’t guarantee this for everyone but my dinner might have had some lucky powers because as I was walking out to head home I ran into my friend Preston, who asked me if I was going to play poker. I decided to play. Long story short, I flopped quad 6’s.
In addition to a profitable session of poker I got a High Hand Bonus of $500 for flopping quads. So that made my great dinner even better.
The service at T-Bones was fantastic and my food was great. I give the T-Bones Chophouse a rating of 3.75 Forks.
