Top 11 local steakhouses voted by NJ 101.5 listeners
There are certain things in the food world that are just simply wrong. One of those is overcooking a steak.
No matter what cut you like, filet, strip, or ribeye, it's critical that the meat is cooked, but not too much.
I love a good cheesesteak where obviously the meat is thoroughly cooked, but with the melty cheese and fried onions, it's an entirely different thing.
As far as a simple, delicious, well-cooked steak, it has to be rare or at the MOST, medium-rare.
If you love a good steak there are a few places in the Garden State where you will always get a perfect cut and preparation.

Adam in Egg Harbor recommends The ChopHouse in Gibbstown
