Warning: You will crave steak after you read this.

Quality steakhouses are peppered throughout every state in America, but in every pond there’s one giant, beefy fish that stands out from the rest.

We collaborated with Foursquare to find the top steakhouses in every state (plus D.C.) based on what Foursquare-savvy diners think. The restaurants were chosen using an algorithm that considers likes, saves, shares, and tip sentiment, among other Foursquare user information.

Foursquare also created a list of America’s 40 Best Steakhouses, just in case you want to make a steak bucket list.
