On a recent trip to Colorado Springs, two couples had the opportunity to visit The Famous Steakhouse. The atmosphere is casual and our meal was not rushed at all. We were there on a Monday night and that may have played a part in the casual atmosphere.
The menu covers appetizers, soup and salad, signature steaks, seafood, chops/chicken, and sides. What is unusual is that the sides are served family style. They include mashed potatoes, hash browns, creamed spinach, skinny onion rings, string green beans with bacon, baby spinach sautéed with garlic & red chili flakes and of course the baked potato and the loaded baked potato.
Their steaks include filet mignon, New York Strip, Ribeye, and the flatiron. They range from 10-oz to 22-oz. The seafood selection consists of organic salmon fillet, Ahi Tuna steak, Fresh wild open sea bass and Maine Lobster tail. (One of the inside secrets is The Famous has no freezers, thus everything is fresh.
Three of us ordered the filet mignon and they were each cooked to our requested specification. They were, as expected, tender to cut and eat. Along with the baked potato, it’s quiet a meal. The fourth in our party order the Salmon fillet which arrived tender and hot. We also ordered the baby spinach sautéed with garlic & red chili flakes.
Our waiter was easy to work with, kept our water glasses filled without prompting. All in all it was a very enjoyable meal.
If you plan to have dessert, you may want to look at that menu first to gauge how large an entrée you are going to order or if you plan to use a “doggie bag” to carry the uneaten portion home.
If you are in the Colorado Springs area and are seeking a very good meal for a special occasion or just for pleasure, you can’t go wrong with The Famous Steakhouse.
