Steak is my ideal meal. To me, there’s not much better than a perfectly cooked steak. When I think of going out to eat for a steak dinner, it makes me think of good times with family and going out to celebrate an event, whether it was good grades, a birthday or another happy occasion. Visit Hendricks County posed a question to its Facebook followers recently to get an insider's perspective on best places to find a big, juicy steak locally. After receiving many responses (you can see them all by clicking here), here's a recap of the top favorites. B Squared Bar & Grill This popular bar and eatery offers a selection of pleasing bar food, but one Facebook fan recommends their ribeye steak dinner and writes that it is “awesome.” Another said, “Everything I’ve eaten there is soooo good!! Great atmosphere too!!” Fans of casual dining will enjoy B Squared’s fun, laid-back atmosphere, good food and drinks in an adults-only setting. B Squared Bar & Grill, 1430 N. Green St., Suite L, Brownsburg, (317) 858-1569. *Note: B Squared Bar & Grill is a bar, so you must be 21 to dine here. *Smoking is permitted. *Outdoor dining fans: B Squared Bar & Grill has a large outdoor dining section.
