An upscale dining option at Thunder Valley Casino, Austins Steakhouse serves up steaks from beef that has been dry-aged for 21 days, hand-cut on the premises and carefully cooked over mesquite. If the glamorous casino environment causes your indulgent streak to emerge, pore over the menu section called Sweeten Your Steak, where you can select blue cheese crust, an asparagus-crabmeat-béarnaise sauce combo known as “Oscar Style” or another over-the-top topping. Round out your meal with some caramelized onions and button mushrooms. Now you’re fortified for a night at the gaming tables.
