The Worst Steak I've Ever Had

Corey Buckner

While in the Dominican Republic Meeks and I were given a tip on what was supposed to be an unbelievably great steak experience. In fact, we were vehemently told that we, “absolutely could not miss out on the steak at Sofrito.” Well, to put it plainly; that tipster was flat out wrong. While I appreciated the zeal of the man who made the recommendation and respect his right to enjoy average steaks; to say that I absolutely could not miss out on the steaks at Sofrito was probably the one “send off” that we received while in the Dominican Republic.

Houlihan's Bar & Grill in Schererville, Indiana pulled off a bit of a miracle last night; they made me like cauliflower. Most of you all know that I harbor no love for that bland, bleached-down cousin of broccoli, and that I do all that I can to avoid it. But, having only recently given up m...[continue]
