Forget chain restaurants. Cheapism went “under the radar” to find the best steakhouses in each state. Who’d they discover? Nick’s Original Filet House (Nick’s in the Sticks) in Tuscaloosa.

Since 1934, Nick’s has brought no-fuss, delicious eats to diners, and based on its overflowing crowd, it continues to be a favorite of Crimson Tide fans. 

Why it made the list: According to Cheapism, Nick’s is a must-visit thanks to its “famous ruby red Nicodemus cocktail and mouthwatering onion rings that accompany a staple bacon-wrapped filet.”

Visit Nick’s Original Filet House at 4018 Culver Road, Tuscaloosa, Alabama 35401. Visit the menu.

With its higher menu pricing, ordering steak at a restaurant can be considered a luxury. So the question is, are there any steakhouses that don’t break the bank? 

Cheapism listed one for each state and in Alabama, it’s Santa Fe Cattle Company in Fort Payne. 

Why it made the list: Santa Fe’s most expensive steak is the 22-ounce T-Bone for just $27.99. No $50+ steaks here, friends. Cheapism also noted that the restaurant earned positive online reviews for its steaks as well as its homemade yeast rolls and sides.

Visit Santa Fe Cattle Company at 7349 US-431, Albertville, Alabama 35950. View the menu.
