You would never picture finding a fancy steakhouse inside the Green Valley Ranch Resort and Casino in Henderson, 10 miles from the strip.
Hanks Fine Steaks and Martinis
A couple of years ago, I found this gem online as it had really good reviews and a high Zagat rating. My family and I decided to try it and it has become our favorite steakhouse in Vegas! So for us, this is the best steakhouse in Vegas, and we even like the steaks more than your typical chains (Flemings, Mastro’s, Mortons).
Hanks Fine Steaks and Martinis received the AAA 4 Diamond Award, along with Steakhouses on the Strip such as Prime (Bellagio), SW Steakhouse (Wynn), etc.
There’s a HUGE difference inside and outside Hank’s. Green Valley Ranch doesn’t look like a hotel that would spot a restaurant this elegant. I mean, Green Valley Ranch is a nice 4 star hotel, but this restaurant could be inside Wynn/Palazzo/Bellagio.
Upon entering, there is a huge bar which is always quite lively every time I visit. There is also live music in the bar. Then, as you walk in past the bar, you enter the main dining room and the very back has a private dining room.
We started off with a Steakhouse Salad which was very good! As a side, we shared the Green Beans which was crunchy just how I like them. I ordered the Filet Mignon and it was cooked perfectly (same as mom). They did undercook Dad’s New York Strip, but we just asked for a hot plate and it solved the problem!
And of course, we had to try some dessert! The crème brûlée is top notch! Not to eggy, and with the perfect crunch on the top caramel layer.
Hank’s has a special place in my heart… errrr stomach 🙂 It’s a really good steakhouse in a place you would least expect to have one!
