501 Gretna Blvd., Gretna 366-3275
The folks here really do have a beef connection, with some of the finest USDA prime beef to offer, be it rib-eye, filet or an 18-oz. T-bone. Sides are a la carte but are large enough to share. Make sure you try the cheesy broccoli or potatoes au gratin. Reservations recommended. Lunch and dinner daily. Credit cards. $$$

700 Bourbon St. 523-1485;
This restaurant in the heart of the French Quarter has stood the test of time by serving New Orleans-style dishes. Don't overlook the beef, though. It's big; at 20 ounces, the T-Bone carries a lot of weight, literally. Reservations recommended. Dinner daily. Credit cards. $$

165 Hwy. 21, Madisonville (985) 845-9940
Even if you drive from New Orleanians, Keith Young will make the trip worth your while with house-cut filets and rib-eyes that weigh in at 14 ounces and are always tender. No reservations. Lunch Tue.-Fri., dinner Tue.-Sat. Credit cards and checks. $$$

365 Canal St., The Shops at Canal Place 566-0221;
Morton's has reappeared on the dining scene and procured the best aged USDA prime steaks from Chicago's premier meatpackers. The choicest cuts are displayed on a cart so you can see exactly what you are getting. Reservations recommended. Dinner daily. Credit cards. $$$

61 Park Place Drive, Covington (985) 893-0505; 830 E. I-10 Service Road, Slidell (985) 649-4329; 1501 Barataria Blvd., Marrero 341-5544; 2746 Severn Ave., Metairie 455-6850;
This familiar chain is back and with the same healthy-sized portions you remember. Everyone starts with an Aussie-Tizer, maybe a Bloomin' Onion or grilled shrimp on the barbie. Either way, make sure to leave room for Jackaroo chops, center-cut pork chops served with cinnamon apples and garlic mashed potatoes. No reservations. Dinner daily. Credit cards. $$

RIB ROOM621 St. Louis St. 529-7045; www.ribroom.netThe award-winning Rib Room serves three meals a day, and it's known around town as the place for a power lunch. Prime rib is the specialty, but the cast-iron-seared filet mignon with Southern Comfort and a cane-syrup reduction is always a deal maker. Reservations recommended. Breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. Credit cards. $$$

610 Poydras St. (Whitney Wyndham Hotel) 212-5656
It's not hard to tell that this restaurant location used to house a bank, especially when you see the old bank vault set up for private dining. Chef Bob Roth is no stranger to cooking steaks. For years he owned another version of this steakhouse in Lakeview, where he perfected the pan-sauteed beef tenderloin medallions and mushroom sauce. Reservations accepted. Breakfast, lunch and dinner daily. Credit cards. $$

627 Bourbon St. 525-8442
Take a break from the garishness on Bourbon Street and slip into Sammy's for just about anything you'd expect to find in a typical New Orleans restaurant. The menu is packed with lots of seafood and beef offerings. Local dishes include barbecue shrimp, jambalaya and gumbo. No reservations. Lunch and dinner daily. Credit cards. $$

237 Decatur St. 525-6151
Locals and tourists have been dining here faithfully for more than 35 years. This small French Quarter haunt is home to local seafood and big beef alike. There are few people who can finish the 24-oz. porterhouse. For those with less ravenous appetites, try the juicy prime rib that weighs in at a hearty 16 ounces or a crisp, fried seafood platter. Reservations accepted. Dinner daily. Credit cards. $$

850 Robert Blvd., Slidell (985) 643-9331
Young's doesn't believe in charging for a la carte sides and gives diners a green salad and big baked potato with their entrees. There are many choices, from yellowfin tuna to a veal chop. The steak choices are numerous as well, with filets and 14-oz. rib-eyes leading the way. No reservations. Dinner Tue.-Sat. Credit cards. $$
