For serious meat lovers who are ready to get their hands dirty, we present a guide to the real deal: live music, rustic and urban roadhouses, lightbulbs, craft beers, American whiskey, more lightbulbs, and a lot of meat. Cafeteria-style, most of those restaurants let you have an expert look at the mouthwatering meat before ordering it by the pound(s). Dig in.
