4. Hollywood Prime 3555 S Ocean Dr, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33316

With just 15 tables, Hollywood Prime is an understated steak joint. Even though it's AAA 4 Diamond rated, boast a Wine Spectator 2013 Best of Award of Excellence and have a menu full of 21-day dry aged prime cuts, seafood, and Long Island Duck, most South Floridians know less about this place than they do about Billy Turner.

5. Toro Toro 100 Chopin Plz, Miami, FL 33131

This Pan-Latin restaurant sits in the lobby of a hotel, but its swank dark wood embellishments and leather booths make it feel like it's its own Miami establishment. The menu includes unexpected items like lamb skewers with yogurt sauce, though classic meat dishes like lamb chops and rib-eye steak are also popular.

6. Chima Brazilian Steakhouse 2400 E Las Olas Blvd, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301

Hit up this semi-hidden Rodizio joint on Las Olas just before Lauderdale Beach to try 15 Brazilian meats (brought to you in an endless parade of skewers), a 20-yard salad bar with cheeses, soups and bread, and plenty of the REAL reason those guys are such big fans of Brazilian soccer: Brazilian chicks.

7. Tropical Acres Steakhouse 2500 Griffin Rd, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33312

Is it really possible that this steakhouse has been around since 1949? Yes, yes it is. And even though you've probably never been, Broward’s oldest steakhouse has steak that’s as good - if not better - than anything you’d get at Prime 112, and you'll actually get to sit in your seat before 9pm.
