Steer ‘n Ale – 27 Years of Serving Good Food at Good Prices

 

By Bill Coburn

Steer ‘ n Ale was opened in 1977 by Tony Dias, and here we are more than a quarter century later and they’re still at it, serving a steady crowd on a daily (and nightly) basis.  There’s a reason for that; in addition to a comfortable atmosphere, (lots of wood, and a western feel featuring western paintings, antique farming equipment and the like on the walls), Steer ‘n Ale serves good sized portions of food, for not a lot of money.  Tony took on a partner in 1996.  Long-time manager Rick Kilbury, who as a teenager was an opening day employee back in 1977, has joined Tony as co-owner, but the formula has remained the same, and their customers are the better for it.

 

To give you an idea, we went in on a Monday night, and every table was full.  Mondays all-day Manager’s Special (there are Manager’s specials Monday thru Thursdays) is fried chicken for $5.49.  Now that meal includes soup or salad, potato or vegetable, and a breast, wing, thigh and a drumstick, all for that low price.  Tuesday night’s special is a New York Steak, just $7.79.  Wednesdays you can get Country Fried Steak or Beef Kabob Teriyaki for $6.49, and Thursday’s specials are a Pork Chop dinner for $7.79 or a Country Fried Chicken Breast for $6.49.  With prices like that, I can see why they always seem to be busy.

 

My son and I stopped in for dinner recently.  As soon as we were seated, our busboy dropped off water for us, and our waitress stopped by to see what we’d like to drink.  I appreciated the prompt service, as one thing that drives me crazy in a restaurant is sitting a long time before I’m greeted.  I ordered a beer and Keelan got a root beer.  I’m a Bud guy, but for those who like a more upscale beer, they also carry Michelob Amber Bock, Newcastle Ale and Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, and others, all at pretty good prices.  Anyway, I ordered the Bacon Wrapped Filet of Beef, with chicken noodle soup and a baked potato.  Keelan ordered the Turkey, Bacon and Tomato Combo sandwich, which is served with coleslaw and fries.  Keelan also ordered a side order of salad.  The salad was just iceberg lettuce, but there was a lot of it, a good-sized oval plate.  My chicken noodle soup was quite good, it really hit the spot on about the tenth day in a row of rain.  Plenty of chicken, noodles, celery and carrots, and an ample supply of crackers, which I like to put in my soup.  Keelan tried the soup, and agreed with me that it was good, in fact, he said next time he’ll be ordering that instead of salad.

 

Keelan’s sandwich, on squaw bread, was piled high with turkey, and had plenty of bacon.  There were also plenty of fries and coleslaw, it’s a good sized meal.  I was surprised to get two bacon wrapped filets, as the price of just $11.99, including soup or salad and potato, led me to think that I’d probably be getting a small portion of steak.  I was wrong.  The filets were good, cooked as I ordered them, and filling.  The baked potato was light and flaky, cooked just right, and they didn’t skimp on the butter.

 

Keelan ordered spumoni for dessert, and got a good-sized scoop with whipped cream on top.  In addition to good steaks, you’ll find nine different sandwiches, burgers, a couple salads and more on the menu at www.steer-n-ale.com

 

Recent menu additions to the SanGabrielValleyMenus.com website include Reed’s Seafood Grill and Broiler out in La Verne, which offers a buy one entrée, get one half off coupon available only on the site, and Bacchus Wine and Champagne Bistro, which is situated in the food court at the newly remodeled Westfield Shoppingtown in Arcadia.

 

In addition to the new restaurants on the SGVMenus.com website, we’ve just launched a new website called InlandEmpireMenus.com, to be a resource for those of you who work or visit the Inland Empire on an occasional or regular basis.  Like SGVMenus.com, InlandEmpireMenus.com started with just eight restaurants, but for those of you who’ve watched SGVMenus.com grow to more than 160 restaurants in less than eighteen months, you know we’ll be growing this website into a full scale menu website as time goes by.  Thanks to all of you who check in to the SGVMenus.com site, whether occasionally or regularly.  Thanks to you, the website hosted more than 21,000 unique visitor sessions in December, 2004 alone.  That’s up from less than 900 visitor sessions in our first month, July of 2003, meaning there’s been an increase in visitor sessions of more than 2100% in 18 months.  It’s our hope to grow InlandEmpireMenus.com in a similar fashion, as well.  We’re off to a good start, with two new restaurants added already.
