Anddddd I’m back! Back from where Evelyne? Well, I came back from my new favorite steakhouse, Montana Mike’s. As soon as I opened the wooden doors into the steakhouse, I realized that this place was one of a kind. As a food and travel blogger, I enjoy and examine restaurants so you all will know if going there would be worth your time.
So, What’s the Montana Mike’s Secret?
The secret of Montana Mike’s is in the history, atmosphere, and delicious, delectable, and devourable meals.
What’s the History?
Sirloin Stockade opened in the 1960s in Round Rock, Texas. Sirloin Stockade went from a single restaurant to having over 80 restaurants of three different brands: Sirloin Stockade, Montana Mike’s, and Coyote Canyon. Montana Mike’s opened up in Oklahoma in 1998. All three of these restaurants you can find in the Midwest and Mexico.
How Is The Atmosphere?
You all, the atmosphere is sensational. Right as you walk through the rustic doors, you are greeted by a smiling waitress who leads you to your glossy wood table. Once you’ve sat down at the table, your waitress returns with a basket piled high with fluffy rolls and cinnamon butter. Then, after a few minutes have gone by, the waitress comes back to see if you are ready to order. Shortly after you place your order, the manager may walk by and want to know how you’re doing. He might ask, “How are the rolls? Have you been here before?” Be prepared to answer him truthfully, friendly, and warmly.
AND can we talk about how photogenic this place is? It seems like anywhere I turn, there is something exclusive that makes me want to pick up my camera and capture the beauty of it. If you have an Instagram, Pinterest, or Facebook, and this color scheme matches your scheme, express away.
The decorations on the walls remind me of the state of Montana. On each canvas, there is a quote that says something about Montana. There was a blown up canvas map of the Lewis and Clark expedition from 1804-1806. Merriweather Lewis and William Clark trekked over 8,000 miles from St. Louis, Missouri to the Columbia River Delta.
How Is The Food?
I won’t lie. I had no clue what I was going to order. I knew I that it had to be a great steak. Scouring the endless menu and eating three rolls (what? They were palatable.) I decided on the 6oz medium rare sirloin with a baked sweet potato. The sirloin was soft, buttery, and cooked to perfection. Personally, I love the choice of a sweet potato. Why? It is a healthy alternative to a regular white potato. The sweet potato was served with butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon and it was a sweet compliment to the savory steak.The rolls were light, airy, fluffy, and absorbed the butter like a sponge absorbs water. The butter was whipped to perfection with cinnamon and brown sugar.
