“We are excited to be apart of the continued growth and development happening in Houston. We plan to dive in head first with getting to know our neighbors and welcoming the community to experience Steak 48.”
– Oliver Badgio, Sr. Vice President Prime Steak Concepts

The River Oaks steakhouse was not the first foray into the restaurant industry for the Mastro brothers. Steak 48 is inspired by their Phoenix location, Steak 44. In fact, the name Steak 48 is an acknowledgment of their roots by paying tribute to the fact that Arizona was the United States’ 48th entry into the Union. The brothers have a history of operating other successful restaurant concepts, including Mastro’s Steakhouse and Mastro’s Ocean Club, which they sold in 2007.

The Mastro ownership group, Prime Steak Concepts, have entrusted the culinary operation of Steak 48 to Executive Chef Jeff Taylor. Chef Taylor has nearly 20 years of experience in the culinary realm, and has worked in Texas since 2000. Chef Taylor works closely with Steak 48 to serve the best steaks in Houston and bring a regional flare to the menu.

Each ingredient brought into Steak 48 must pass Chef Taylor’s rigorous standards before it is even considered for the menu. Our prime grade beef is sourced from responsible farms and wet aged for 28 days by our master butcher.

Each steak is cut by hand in our restaurant and delivered directly to the kitchen. Having an on-site butcher allows us to custom cut steaks for each dinner service and offer the tender and flavorful steaks Houston foodies crave.

We are also very careful about where our fish and seafood comes from, trusting only sustainable sources for our ingredients. Our prime grade steaks and seafood dishes can be complemented by innovative sides and an expansive raw seafood bar. Our seafood bar is stocked with fresh oysters from both coasts, Alaskan king crab and succulent Maine lobster.

Our side dishes include classic American steakhouse options and our own innovative creations such as Corn Creme Brulee, Double Baked Truffle Potato and Asparagus Fries. We also serve tantalizing appetizers like Fried Deviled Eggs and Fresh Burrata to whet your appetite before you dig into the best steaks in Houston. Once the dinner plates have been cleared away, each guest is sure to be tempted by an item on our decadent dessert menu.
