Myron's Prime Steakhouse Restaurant Review

: Evening traffic on I-35 between San Antonio and New Braunfels can be enervating, but your reward is Myron's, a straight-shooting steakhouse without swanky-chain attitude. Affable owner Bill Been has, well, been in the restaurant business for more than 30 years, but this place, housed in a retooled 1920s movie palace with high, stamped-tin ceilings and cozy, wood-paneled booths, is his first solo venture. We suggest starting with wasabi-seared ahi or shrimp Myron in a riff on rémoulade. As Myron’s claims true, wet-aged Prime beef, head for the best: New York strip or bone-in rib-eye, both served with a retro wedge of iceberg lettuce. Rack of lamb shouldn't be ignored just because it also reeks of retro with its mint jelly side. Especially large lobsters are another specialty, but for the less conspicuous consumers, there’s also oven-roasted game hen and “old-style” double-cut pork chops. And by no means should you skip dessert; the pecan pie is totally Texas, and the cheesecake gives New York models a run for their money.
