Perini Ranch Steakhouse
The remoteness of this legendary steakhouse (and its sprawling patio) has made it a natural remedy for the pandemic-stricken. If only we could take Tom and Lisa Perini home with us too. Order this to go: The entire menu can be boxed for takeaway. The signature Ranch Burger, topped with cheddar, grilled mushrooms, green chiles, and onions, never fails us. A slice of prime rib, pit-roasted over mesquite, is also foolproof, particularly with a side of green chile hominy. Ditto the heritage pork ribs in a semi-spicy rub. Pro tip: The fried items don’t travel as well. And if you’re not in pickup range, remember that the Perinis ship their delicious meats, like the famous peppered beef tenderloin and Angus brisket, frozen and vacuum sealed.
