(Gerry Furth-Sides) Black Angus Steakhouse and Fogo de Chão are better known for hearty beef feasts than for romantic holidays. But, this year, both restaurants are featuring wonderful Valentine’s packages that extend through the holiday week-end.
We were pleasantly surprised to find the superb quality of hospitality, atmosphere and food in this multi-unit company. As a result, we would recommend these restaurants for everyday or any holiday. So smooth is the operation that Black Angus Steakhouse in Burbank served well over 1000 meals for Thanksgiving last season. Every staffer we encountered seemed to be there for the joy of the job, just like the Fogo de Chão staff. These are two topnotch places where you can go on a holiday and be guaranteed as pleasant and professional service as you would at any other time.
At Black Angus Steakhouse, we enjoyed a toast to the holiday with the featured wine-of-the-month: 19 Crimes. With a full-bodied fruit and a silky finish, it goes well with every dish. On the menu is an Original Texas Tea that goes down easily and has a classic kick to it.
Silky red 19 Crimes celebrates the wild side of Australian history. Use the app and hear why.
Black Angus Steakhouse Valentine’s Day special featuring a slow-roasted Prime Rib or Beef Steak and Crab Cake
for $29.99 is available from February 14-17 while supplies last at all the mainland restaurants. Even though I am a beef-loving paleo, the two Classic Sidekicks and a delicious round loaf of Sweet Molasses Bread were so fresh and perfectly prepared that they rivaled the meat.

A moist, decadent chocolate cake with vanilla bean ice cream and hot fudge tops off the meal
Black Angus is boldly organic and spacious with soaring ceilings. In the high-backed booths you always feel as if you are in a private space but with the company of other people around you. “Black Angus Steakhouse has set the scene for first date-nights, marriage proposals, anniversaries and more for almost 55 years,” said Liz Geavaras, Chief Marketing Officer Black Angus Steakhouse. “We’re inspired by our customer’s love stories and hope to keep the romance alive by reliving those moments or creating new ones at our restaurants.” This year Black Angus Steakhouse turned up the heat with their #FlamesOfLove campaign. Customers are encouraged to submit their #FlamesofLove stories on Black Angus’ social pages for a chance to win a delicious dinner for two (via a $150 gift card) for the best stories.
