Remember when we gave Monty’s A Taste Of The West a test-drive a few weeks ago? I was put off by the unannounced flavor on my ribeye steak, and had to send it back in exchange for a new un-flavored steak. Well, now we know why, courtesy of the Trib’s restaurant reviewer:
John has developed a steak rub, used first at his own backyard barbecues and brought to the restaurant at the urging of friends. He is so sure that you will like it, he serves the rub on all the steaks, no steak sauce needed. Top sirloin, New York, center-cut rib steak and tenderloin are the cuts available. Of course you can have yours without if you want.
Well…no offense, John, but the rub just didn’t cut it for me. I’m glad that so many customers do enjoy it, but it might be a good idea to let people know about the rub before they order a steak.
QUESTION: when you order a steak, would you be disappointed (or upset) if it had a sauce, rub, or marinade on it that you did NOT know about when you ordered it?
