Black Angus Steakhouses are well known for their high quality steaks, which are aged a minimum of 21 days. Each steak is hand cut daily by their chefs and grilled to order over an open flame. They offer filet mignon, New York strip, rib eye, top sirloin or prime rib. The option of adding sauteed onions or mushrooms can be added for a small extra charge. They claim to take pride in every steak they serve.
Black Angus also offers a variety of seafood, or a surf and turf for people who can’t make the decision between steak and seafood, including king crab, lobster, fried shrimp or grilled prawns. Most entrees come with a choice of soup or salad and some are served with a potato and vegetable. An array of appetizers, desserts and hand-shaken cocktails are also on the menu. Once a customer orders, a molasses type bread, with a smooth light whipped butter, arrives at the table. It is warm and very well liked! The entrée portions are large!
Stuart Anderson opened the first Black Angus Steakhouse in 1964. Anderson was a prominent rancher in Washington State. He wanted to provide a steakhouse to patrons that was top quality with a warm, comfortable and friendly atmosphere, yet affordable. His first restaurant started in a remodeled dining room in a Seattle hotel called the Caledonia.
Today, there are 46 steakhouses in six western states: California, Washington, Arizona, New Mexico, Alaska and Hawaii. Each restaurant has approximately 75 employees and serves about 3,000 customers a week.

Black Angus Steakhouse is not decorated for a romantic rendevous. It is more of a “home on the range” type of décor, with horseshoes, lassos, pictures of horses and cows and all the other things one could imagine with a ranch.
However, it is a very warm and comfortable place to dine.
