USA Steak 99 Restaurant: Chiang Mai - unbelievably great value

in tasteem •  16 days ago

This seems to be a recurring theme with my opinion as far as this city is concerned. I am convinced that Chiang Mai has a fantastic array of really good restaurants at varying price points. The main factor (unsurprisingly to many - perhaps) is to get out of the tourist area and then quality goes up and the price goes down. While this place wasn't entirely out of the tourist areas, it was far enough that most of the customers tend to be residents.


Located near the absolutely massive Maya Shopping Mall, USA Steak has a menu that immediately impresses, and this is before you notice the prices. The menu doesn't have prices written in it for the most part and this I think is a mistake but lo' and behold the prices are on the wall and I love it when restaurants get artistic like this.


I was dining with a mixed bag of people in that i was the only one that ate pork. That was fine with me because it means that my friends are not going to try to get their hands on my ribs. I can't really say the same for my waffle fries though.


My pals: One of them is super-stingy and the other is a pescetarian, so they ordered the cheap fish plates, which to be fair both looked incredible.


The best part about USA Steak 99 is that everyone's food was excellent and with the exception of the ribs none of these dishes cost more than $3 (the ribs were $5.) I found it kind of funny that my stingy friend really wanted to order a steak but couldn't part with the extra $2. This is a guy that owns two $20,000 motorcycles. I guess to each their own!

The food is prepared in a booth at the front of the house so there are no secrets or "5 second rule" violations taking place (bonus upvote for the first person who knows what the 5 second rule is.)


It was a little bit odd that they didn't sell alcohol, but there is a 7-11 nearby and they have no problem with you bringing your own in. They don't even charge corkage for this. The staff said this is because of a law prohibiting alcohol sales withing a certain distance of a university - which was odd because there was a bar right across the street. I guess the line has to be drawn somewhere!

Of the many places that I have visited in this town for dinner in the past 40 days I can honestly say that I will return to eat here. The combination of really great meat and sauces and the very low prices is an equation that can't be beat. If you are visiting Chiang Mai and want some ribs or fish that tastes great and costs next to nothing - head straight for USA Steak 99.

That looks great and the portion is also not that small.
I love the 5 second rule (am working as a quality manager in a smoothie factory xD): if some food hits the ground you have 5 seconds to pick it up because the germs are so slow that they need more than 5 seconds to get on the food so it's ok xD and it's obviously not true


you got it! It's just a joke in the restaurant industry. I don't think any place would ever take floor food and still serve it. I hope not at least :)


There are always some rumors about McD and BK xD
At work I have one buddy who formerly worked at McD and all he is eating there are the mcflurrys because the machines have to be cleaned regularly or they will stop working

Awesome dude, that’s super cheap and looks great inside. On Koh Samui there’s a few “western” places that are pretty good, a jerk chicken place that does ribs etc which is great. There’s also an area where is super touristy that has Hard Rock Cafe and stuff with other good burger joints but its pretty expensive, like $12 or so...

Wow, that looks really good and the price is phenomenal. My half rack I got the other day was $14.50. It did come with two sides but it was still tasty. I just wrote a review of the restaurant the other day. I like the picture on the wall with the pig and the different parts of it. Even though I would probably want to immerse myself in the culture, this looks like a place I would probably keep coming back to. Thanks for sharing!


I'll check out your review asap!


Sweet thanks!

Wow that looks good and you are definitely trying every place out. I skip on the 5 second rule because even one second on the floor at some places is one second too long. $5 for ribs is a bargain anywhere in the world.

The ambiance and the presentation of the food looks amazing.
I will try to use tasteem for the post.
Keep reviewing.

Beautiful eating is one of the pleasures that life gives, I think there is an application to search for good restoration according to user reviews, of course that also generates bots ... the world as it advances ... Thank you very much.
