Beefing it up for National Beef Month

Where to get the best steaks and burgers and beef sandwiches to celebrate National beef Month

January happens to be Meat Month — vegans please turn the page here — carnivores rejoice and read on! You are in for a stellar month of 14 ounce bone-in rib eye steaks and juicy burgers (dripping  and dribbling with melted cheese,
smear of mayo please).

In order to properly celebrate this monumental month, I have compiled a list of the juiciest, meat dripping, cardiac driven beefy meals:

Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar: Prime Rib Sunday runs through Feb. 10 you can get the three course Prime Rib Dinner (best in town) for only $29.95

Shakespeare’s: OMG, no better burger around.  A fresh Rosemary bun and the juiciest burger in Southeast Florida, served with steak fries.

Eat Here: The Veal Meatloaf is so good it's almost indescribable, must be something in that rich mushroom gravy that makes this meatloaf nearly an out of
body experience.

Ruth’s Chris- I find them a bit snobby and uninspired at times, but the sirloin is a damn good steak on a sizzling buttered plate.

Joe's Chicago Beef in Gulf Gate: He is SO the real deal! He even complimented my husband for ditching the low cal salads I send with him to work, apparently hubby has plenty of hankerings for a cheesesteak and beef hot dog.

Bonefish Grill: The Kobe burger. Who would have thought a seafood eatery could have a killer burger, but it does and it is packed with juicy goodness.

Rick’s Place: That tiny little French stop on Siesta Drive has a Beef Bourguignon worthy of a nod to the French Chef. This one is a real deal supper.

Ezra: Brainchild of the former chef, a grilled skirt steak with house made Worcestershire. Ask for bleu cheese crumbles and colossal onion rings.

Cheeburger Cheeburger: The Patty Melt is a true New England Pleasure; a throwback to the ‘70’s. I love the grilled onions and gooey cheese.

Alpine Steakhouse: This could be the least expensive steak dinner. NO atmosphere here, but people flock for the flavorful Prime Rib and grilled
steaks. They offer cheap, worthwhile lunches too.

Bangkok-Tokyo on State Road 70 has a mean sizzling beef dish — Sizzling Wor bar — I say hold the pork and pay for extra beef on this one.

JR’s Packinghouse: This could be the best dive bar ever! Do the Cuban burger, trust me. Bring a pack of Tums just in case, but it's well worth it folks. If you are so daring, try the Big Bertha — think of the Pee Wee Herman Movie with Large Marge. She could tackle this one!

Taste Of Asia: Go for the Crazy Bull, beef short ribs that are just bursting with flavors of soy and lemongrass, and an enormous portion.

Phillippi Creek Oyster Bar: Who would think the Philly cheesestak at a fresh fish place was this good but several people I met there while eating my fish taco said they swear by it — and they were from Philly!

Beach Bistro: Get the Tenderloin sliders with Béarnaise and demi glace and don’t forget the foie gras.

I've always wondered about Joe's Chicago Beef after driving by there so many times. Guess a cheesesteak is in order this week!

I think you mean TONY'S CHICAGO BEEF in gulf gate is the real deal. Not Joe's.
