Hometown Tuesday: Tea Steak House
You've probably noticed that we talk a lot about the Tea Steak House during the Morning Show. Andy and I recently had the pleasure of visiting this outstanding restaurant. Tea Steak House guests are in for a real treat!
The Tea Steak House is located right on South Main Street in downtown Tea. This steak house is also connected to O'Toole's Bar, the perfect place to gather with your friends after dinner. The restaurant itself is an iconic establishment rich with history. According to the Tea Steak House website, this restaurant started in 1965 when "Lloyd and Rickie Ihnen discovered a new process called IHNEN Aging, for 14 days 6 hours and 37 minutes full loins are hung in our 34-degree cooler." This technique gives the beef so much flavor that your "taste buds do a jig." The website continues stating, "In 1986 Jim and Lisa Ihnen purchased the Tea Steak House from Jim's parents Lloyd and Rickie, in 1987 they also purchased O'Toole's Bar from Paul and Colleen O'Toole. Today, along with their son Jesse, they continue the process of IHNEN aged beef and continue to serve the best steaks in South Dakota with a smile." It's all in the family!
After a day traveling throughout the southern part of the state, Andy and I stopped for a quick bite at the Tea Steak House. Andy decided to try one of the restaurant's delicious burgers. I opted for the grilled turkey club sandwiches with cheese fries! It's been a long time since I've treated myself to cheese fries. Boy, I really savored the taste of the fries the yummy sandwich!
Try the Tea Steak House next time you're in Tea! You or your taste buds won't regret it!
