$120 steak sandwich in Fort Worth?
Dry-aged Wagyu steaks sound expensive.
Not at Hoffbrau Steaks & Grill, where a Wagyu strip costs $19.75.
It’s from Texas-raised Wagyu cattle, not from Japan. But the flavor of Hoffbrau’s special compares to meatier, high-end steaks at more expensive restaurants.
It’s not the softest cut around, and it’s not for everybody. If you just want a good steak. Hoffbrau’s sliced smoked sirloin should make you happy, or one of the Angus ribeyes.
But if you want an exotic beef experience, the Wagyu strips are among the leanest steaks in a mid-price steakhouse.
Hoffbrau is sort of a mid-price miracle. The most expensive steak is less than $30, including sides.
Right now, the big news involves Mother’s Day. Next weekend, all locations will serve prime rib in a small or large cut ($21.95-$24.95).
Owner Rainey Fogiel says the new Benbrook location will open sometime this summer. It’s at 8501 Benbrook Blvd. (U.S. 377) at Interstate 20.
Her husband, J. Aron Fogiel, said Benbrook is perfect for the next location because there aren’t any full-service restaurants in town with a mixed-beverage license from the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission.
“Plus the people in Benbrook are very nice,” he said.
The location, off the interestate, will bring in more customers, which will hopefully offset any cannibalization from having multiple locations in the area.
