ISO: PCB’s Best Beef 2024


By Jack Smith

Capt Anderson's SteakWhere’s the beef? Although we live in a seafood destination, almost every restaurant offers some sort of steak or beef dish. Whether it’s a “surf & turf” dish, a sizzling ribeye, a porterhouse, or my favorite, a country fried steak, PCB restaurants have some delicious steak and beef options to choose from.

Personally, I believe that the best cuts of meat come from Black Angus, although I suppose a case could be made for Kobe beef as well. In the end, perhaps these questions were best summed up in the 1984 Wendy’s commercial starring unknown actress Clara Peller when she famously asked “Where’s the beef?”
