Is there anything better than a big, juicy steak? Treat your dad this year and leave the grilling to someone else!
There's something at every price point in this steak dinner roundup. Whether you're bringing home some nice prime rib or tying one on at a Brazilian steakhouse, there are plenty of options in Northern Virginia.
Naturally, there are the big, well-known restaurants that specialize in nothing but steak, but here are some of the more affordable, local spots.
1. Longhorn Steakhouse
This family-friendly chain does a great grilled steak with your choice of a side and a loaf of their delicious wheat bread. This is the 12-ounce ribeye ($19.99), which came out a perfect medium rare. Yum!
Multiple locations, including Manassas, Chantilly, Warrenton, Falls Church, and Dulles.
2. Blackfinn Ameripub
The chipotle steak frites at Blackfinn is a tender skirt steak served with a zesty arugula salad and perfect, crisp fries. They also have a filet mignon served with garlic roasted potatoes. Wash it all down with one of the dozens of beer on tap!
Two NoVA locations are in Merrifield (2750 Gallows Road | Vienna, VA) and Ashburn (43781 Central Station Drive | Suite 150 | Ashburn, VA).
3. Texas de Brazil
Conveniently located at Fair Oaks Mall, this Brazilian steakhouse is the most expensive option at $48.99 per person for dinner and weekend meals. Lunch on Fridays is $26.99 per person from 11:30 a.m.-2 p.m.
You get what you pay for though, and here it will be a veritable meat parade. Choose from any of the succulent cuts offered by the roaming gauchos and make sure you visit the enormous, elaborate salad bar.

4. Boston Market
If your schedules don't match up for a dinner out, bring Dad a big slab of prime rib ($15.99) from one of your neighborhood favorites! This flavorful takeout option is available at most Boston Market locations, after 5 p.m. on weekdays and after noon on weekends. Call your local store to see if they have it, and don't forget the mashed potatoes and gravy!
5. Arepas Capitol
The grilled ribeye ($16.00) at this authentic Venezuelan restaurant comes with three sides and a fresh, complex red sauce. I have no clue what's in it, but it's absolutely addictive.
6. Mike's "American"
I have honestly never had a bad meal at this Springfield restaurant. The Great American Restaurants group puts out consistently delicious, well-prepared American favorites at their many locations.
The prime rib starts at $28 and comes either plain or blackened. You can also get a filet mignon or ribeye in various sizes and preparations. Save room for the flourless chocolate waffle, and try not to fill up on their famous bread basket!
Address: 6210 Backlick Road | Springfield, VA
