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.
Kix is traveling deep into the heart of steak country and visiting three local legends in Omaha. Family owned and operated Johnny's Cafe started as a small saloon nearly 100 years ago and is now a classic steakhouse serving up the best prime rib in town. Down the road, Dario's is serving traditional European fare like Steak Frites and a decadent chocolate cake made with dark Belgian beer. Last, but not least, Kix checks out Gorat's, a favorite amongst locals and Omaha native Warren Buffet for their version of the whiskey steak, a quintessential Omaha dish.
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.
