At steakhouses, you probably know what to expect - formal service, high-quality meat, and steep prices. Arroyo Chop House definitely has all those things, but it still stands out from the STKs and Ruth’s Chrises of the world. We won’t bury the lead - the best thing here is actually the chocolate soufflé, which you order at the beginning of your meal because it takes 45 minutes to make. It’s super fluffy, and tastes like chocolate clouds. The meat and sides are both good, too - the rib eye is our favorite - along with classic, very well-done sides like creamed spinach, scalloped potatoes, and jalapeño-corn soufflé.
