When it comes to steak, as Oklahomans, we rarely agree. We argue over everything that goes into a proper steak. Seasonings vs marinade, charcoal vs gas, grill vs oven, rare vs medium vs edible leather... the list goes on and on.
For instance, while I've had some of the most expensive steaks in the state, I prefer the ultra-affordable offerings at Fred's in Altus. Is it the highest quality beef? Probably not, but the seasonings and perfect cook make for an amazing meal... but therein lies a different problem. You can't exactly call Fred's a steakhouse because they offer so many dishes other than steak. It's more of a regular restaurant that happens to serve a delicious steak.
That's not a knock on Fred's... Their smorgasbord of other meals is equally delicious, it just doesn't fit the definition of this list.

Luckily, the internet has a way to judge, well, everything... Here are the undisputed highest-rated steakhouses in Oklahoma where you're almost guaranteed to have a good meal.
