Hard to find but the food makes for it. Roasted green Chile’s are full of flavor and will make you tastes buds dance. My steak was cooked to perfection. Cream Brûlée was not so exciting, not full of flavor and is was not warmed on...More

Just a very nice unassuming restaurant I would not have found without local knowledge. It was really excellent food quality with knowledgeable servers and a welcoming feel. Margarita's made just right and good local ales. Very nice.

Very good food in a nice location. The restaurant is pretty big but not too noisy, and has also separate rooms. The meat is amazing: tender, juicy, tasty. The filet mignon simply perfect and the sweet potatoes as well. Good service.

This is a place I really enjoy. They have awesome steak sandwiches! And they have this massive porterhouse no man should ever attempt a second time. It is one of the best I've eaten. The experience is nice. A little stiff collared but very nice.

Enjoy a delicious steak and a taste of Austin. You haven’t experienced the best of Austin until you've been to ALC Steaks. The capitol city's only independent, family-owned steakhouse serves sizzling, hand-cut, aged beef the way Austinites have loved it for over 19 years. From our rich, antique wooden bar to our relaxing, unpretentious dining room, everything about us says, "welcome." Our exceptional service and genuine hospitality are as inviting as the many signature items on our menu. Tonight's the perfect evening to discover something else great about Austin.
