11 Steak Nights in Houston to Enjoy At Home Every Monday Through Thursday
Despite the ongoing challenges of navigating the coronavirus pandemic, the sacred ritual of a weekly steak night is still going strong in Houston. While restaurant dining rooms and patios are open for service at limited capacity, many are also offering options for enjoying the goodness of grilled meat at home or wherever your dinner plans take you.
From upscale feasts to classic combinations, there’s a steak for every bite and budget available for curbside pickup, takeout and delivery. While we’re not going to recommend eating red meat four nights a week (that’s between you and your doctor), it is, in fact, possible. Thursdays, though, are a particularly big day for steak nights in Houston. Read on to see what’s available when — and watch for another list of even more steak nights available for to-go orders soon.
