Famed Country musician Kix Brooks is passionate about a lot of different things from music, to wine, to raising cattle. For his next big adventure he is setting out across the states to find some of America's best steakhouses. Up first is Chicago; here we visit high-end up-and-comer Chicago Cut, South American inspired Zed451, and old-school classic Gibson's. Next we travel to Louisville where we first stop at a low-key roadhouse that is serving up top of the line beef at a blue-collar price. From there we venture down the road a piece to a packed Jeff Ruby's where a father daughter team are serving up the highest quality product with a dramatic flair. And finally we head to Nashville to visit a couple of Kix Brooks' local haunts like the Cork & Cow and The Standard.

Dallas

We're riding into cowboy country and Kix is checking out some of the best steakhouses the Lone Star State has to offer. In Dallas, Kix heads to YO Steakhouse for some classic Hill Country cuisine, like chicken fried lobster. At Cattlemen's in Fort Worth, cowboy cooking is done right with quality meat cooked over an open grill in the middle of the dining room. Kix heads to Knife where the chefs are using innovative and modern techniques to breathe new life into classic dishes.

New Orleans

Kix is heading to his home state of Louisiana and hitting three steakhouses that prove New Orleans is one of the best food destinations in the country. Galatoire's is an institution right on Bourbon Street, and locals know to order off-menu favorites like their secret Fried Chicken. Charlie's Steak House is a neighborhood joint serving steaks New Orleans-style, which means sizzling in hot butter. No family is more synonymous with New Orleans cuisine than the Brennans, and Dickie Brennan's Steakhouse brings classic Creole and Cajun flavors to traditional steakhouse fare.

Washington DC

It's not easy to get people in Washington to agree on much, but everyone will agree that Kix has found three of the best steakhouses in our nation's capital. Ray's The Steak is a local favorite serving succulent steak dishes that have loyal clientele coming back for more. Even the President is a fan! The Partisan is at the forefront of DC's modern cuisine serving fresh, high quality meat thanks to their own in-house butcher shop. No part of the animal goes to waste here; they even fry an apple pie in beef fat. Del Campo's South American menu includes Smoked Wagyu Steak and a massive sandwich called a Chavito, piled high with an assortment of meat including seared rib-eye, Mortadella and Ham. It's as tall as the Washington Monument!

New York City

Kix is in the Big Apple with an even bigger appetite as he explores three of New York City's best steakhouses. Everyone from Albert Einstein to Babe Ruth has eaten at historic Keen's, home of the famous Mutton Chop. Sammy's Roumanian Steakhouse is a true NYC original that serves juicy steaks and traditional Jewish dishes like stuffed cabbage that have their customers literally breaking out in song and dance. Just across the river in Long Island City, M Wells is making a splash. The restaurant, housed in a converted auto-body shop, is putting an eclectic spin on traditional steakhouse classics with dishes like their mouthwatering burger served "bone-in," and pork chops that are thinly sliced and piled high like a stack of pancakes.
