This is one of my favorite "foodie" discussions, because any answer is delicious. This topic came to me because my son wants to go to a steakhouse to celebrate his 8th grade graduation.

New York Strip
Filet
Prime Rib
Rib Eye
Porterhouse

I am partial to porterhouse, medium rare. And since many steakhouses offer only porterhouse for two, I introduced this to my son and he loves it too, so we are usually set.

Apologies to all the vegetarians and vegans.

My favorite uncle grew up on a farm in Illinois and ran a meat business that used to supply the cruise ships. He always had great quality steaks that he'd serve when I went there for Sunday dinner growing up and he always told me that the shell steak (otherwise known as the NY strip) and filet mignon were in his opinion the best cuts. I grew up eating those and 50-60 years later those are still my favorites. Rib eye and porterhouse are a little too fatty for my taste though realize they are probably the most popular cuts in most classic steakhouses.
Every Saturday night I usually grill one of three things on my Big Green Egg - filet mignon, shell/strip steak or loin lamb chops (maybe my favorite of all, but not steak). Love to eat out but we rarely go to steakhouses because I've always found I can get good quality beef locally and cook it just the way each of us like it for 20% of what I'd pay at a steakhouse.

Ribeye has enough fat to give great flavor. Especially on the grill.

my favorite is a Texas style, slow cooked brisket. But for traditional steak house, rib eye.

Not really a steak guy but if I had to eat one it would probably be porterhouse. Love brisket,Lamb and Lamb Shank though

Porterhouse of course, is strip steak on one side of the bone, and tenderloin on the other.

I favored strip for a while, but now would say a bone in rib eye has the most flavor.

Can't go wrong with nearly all good cuts of beef though.

And yes Paul, a great barbecued brisket, wet for me, is a terrific meal

Not a steak guy, but a dry-aged porterhouse is heaven.

Same here. I only go to steakhouses if other people want to and are paying but I'll buy a dry aged porterhouse from a local butcher a couple times a year and for home consumption with the wife. Got a finely seasoned cast iron skillet, a rosemary bush in the yard, a few items from the grocery store and I'm ready to go.
