Sorry, it has been a bit since the last issue of Fresno!Fresno! newsletter. I have excuses but they are all boring.
The Best Steak In Fresno
I have been mulling over this one for some time. What is the best steak in Fresno?
Yes, we are the taco capital, have the best Mexican food breakfast spots, love tri-tip, and chicken sandwiches are everywhere (although I think that is an every-city thing).
But us red meat-eatin’ Fresnans can still like some straight-up steak too.
Right now, my favorite is the tepanyaki filet at Edo-ya. A bit of a different choice, I know. It’s just so soft and fucking perfect. And they have that spicy sauce too.
But there are a lot of perfect steaks in Fresno. And sadly I have not even had a quarter of them.
I would love to try all the steaks in Fresno but I don’t think I could. It would be a lot of work. And money.💵
I suppose if you had a large food budget and the time and energy to go out and eat all the time, a person could do this. But I am sadly not this person. Yet.
That person could exist though. There is somebody rich enough in this town to have the time and money to try every freaking steak in Fresno, but just doesn’t do it. For shame.
Yeah, well, anyway, I went to ‘Fresno Twitter’ to get the vibe. To see what they think about the steaks. And it seems I need to try a steak from the Lime Light:
I am sure I have had a steak at the Lime Lite but it has been many many years since, so I don’t even remember. Many people picked it, so I am excited to go back and try.
Other places brought up in the Twitter thread I totally agree with and want to try again:
Ruth’s Chris (chain)
Some I need to try that are also recommend:
Not only does “Cosmo’s” and Richard’s have a Craig Scharton endorsement, it has an endorsement from THE Simon Majumbar:
Side note: I truly have no obligation to bring up Clovis Taint District trash but some place called “13” or something, got brought up a fucking lot.
I honestly never heard of it. I will not go there unless strong-armed. I don’t go to Clovis for steaks because Clovis sucks.
If I were to go to a Fresno County place for steak though, I hear Cattleman’s and Harris Ranch are a good suggestion.
Hope this helps you decide your next Fresno steak adventure. If you have any recos for a good Fresno steak, please leave us all a comment:

I actually like the building as it is today. But hey hey NOT over the original, mind you. Okay? Just saying it is still cool is all.
A big thank you to organizations like Vintage Fresno for keeping us informed and reminding us of bits of Fresno that once was.
Thank you and stuff
I appreciate the read. Hope you have a great Fresno Thanksgiving running into all the Fresno natives in town to brag about how great life is living in their
shitty apartment in Los Angeles or Portland.

Since March of 2020 my steak quest has been at home like everything else. Especially since prices have increased. The challenge is to make my next steak better than the last. I get friends in on it too. It's a great time.
