SW Steakhouse or Del Frisco’s?

I know Del Frisco’s is a chain but I used to love the sea bass and crab fried rice when we lived in Texas. I recently saw Best Thing I EVER Ate In Vegas and the chili rubbed steak for two has my mouth watering. The pictures of it look divine. We don’t have time to do both places because of other obligations, I guess I just need a consensus to aid me in my decision. Thanks!

You picked a couple of good ones. We once had a Del Frisco's in Indy and I thought it was better than Morton's and definitely Ruth's Chris.

SW is amazing, but I've only dined there when a vendor was schmoozing for business or a favor of some sort. I'd probably pick SW for the atmosphere...Del Frisco's for the food.

Tough call.

While I have not dined at Del Frisco in LV, we loved the location in the Tech Center in Denver, and also dined there on a few visits, after moving from Denver.

I have dined at SW, and loved it.

Just to “return to Del Frisco,” I would probably pick it, in LV.

Good luck, and do not think you could go wrong.

The chili rubbed rib eye for two at SW is one of the best steaks I've ever had. SW gets the nod absolutely if that's what you want. Personally, I don't think a lot of the ambience because you're sort of shoehorned in and the atmosphere is very much that of a business meeting.

And in case anyone was wondering Scott Conant of Cosmo's Scarpetta is the one doing the recommendation for the Chili Rub.

SW’s prices are on par with the other higher end steakhouses on the strip. I’d also pick it over a chain.
