Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse

Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse impressed us with a stunning elegance... dark wood, beautiful chandeliers and an impressive wine display. However, that doesn’t compare to the food!

We tried he Nueske’s thick cut bacon au poive- quite unique, served with spicy peppers on top, the Del’s Jumbo Lump Crab Cake and the Heirloom Tomatoes & Burrata Salad to start- so delicious!

We paired our steaks with a lovely Cabernet Sauvignon from their extensive wine menu. I loved the wine recommendation and it made the main course- fabulous steaks, even better. We got to try their hand cut and dry aged steaks- a filet mignon and a 45 day dry aged prime strip. The filet was melt in your mouth delicious, while the dry aged steak had a heavier, almost nutty, flavor, which paired so well with a Cabernet to bring out the flavors of each. Their sides are large and equally delicious- we tried the Lobster Mac and Cheese and the Uptown Del’s Potato- a favorite at the restaurant- with melted fontina cheese, sprinkled with chives ansbshaved truffle. It was awesome and enough to feed three people! 😊

We saved the best for last- dessert! We tried the lemon cake and butter cake. Butter cake is something that seems to be on a lot of menus lately- it originated in St Louis and I have a homemade recipe I got from a friend. It was so warm and moist, but with a nice crunch around the edges. While you don’t want to miss out on the butter cake, you really cannot miss the lemon cake. I’m a chocolate person myself, but these desserts really satisfied my sweet tooth. I’d order than lemon cake again and again- and apparently everyone does. It is their specialty. It has layer upon layer of light cake and a tremendous lemon filling on each layer. I wish I could have another right now!

If you enjoy a great steakhouse, definitely get to Del Frisco’s Double Eagle! There is a lot of variety on the menu and please don’t forget those delicious desserts! Bon appetit! 😊
