I didn't want to pirate this thread...but my post isn't worth a thread of it's own. 
 Todays entry on the front page DEC 6,2010...Charlies SteakHouse in Greenville, South Carolina shows a thin-cut  steak and small foil-wrapped potato on a metal broiler-plate.  I have never seen a steak that looked so much like the traditional "SIZZLER SIRLOIN" steak advertised by the early Sizzler restaurant chain for $4.95 back in the 1960's and 70's.
I don't think I am paying Charlie's Steakhouse a compliment with this comment...just had the image of the old Sizzler lifted from the past.

I have to agree, Al. I was not impressed with the picture, and the reviews did not convince me otherwise.

It's not charbroiled.  Looks flat grilled or pan seared & finished under a broiler.  I can do that at home.    ... The meat doesn't look to have much if any marbling.    So meat tenderizer ???
Anyway the review stated "like going to the aunt's house"   ... it must mean "nothing special".

For what it's worth, my parents ate at Charlie's for the first time just a couple of weeks ago and both really enjoyed. My mom is a steak fanatic and really liked the steak she got at Charlie's. I've never been. I mean to try it sometime.

I've been seeing a lot of Ruth's Chris ads on TV recently. I've never noticed "her" TV ads before, if she did them. "She" used to advertise A LOT in the magazines that airlines used to put in seat pockets. I've never been to RC, but was aware of them. I think that they used to depend on expense acct biz travel. I have a now retired friend, who went there all the time. He didn't especially like it, for what it costed, but his clients did. 
 
Another friend, who is still working, finds that lobster is the big draw when he entertains in Massachusetts.
 
I also remember that those "great steakhouse" lists in airline magazines, were actually paid ads. I met the guy who came up with the idea.

One of the many delights of getting together with fellow Roadfooders is learning about great places near me that I never heard of.  In our recent get-together at Cane Rosso in Dallas BB told us about going to this little steakhouse I had never heard of.  He and Mariton loved it!
 

 
I don't recall him saying exactly how he 'discovered it", but here's ny guess:
 

 
I swear, that boy can smell a pie from 50 miles.  In this case, he did!

Why do you think they put those ads in the airline magazines? Businessmen AND Women with expense accounts fly on those planes and are looking foe some place to take clients or be taken by vendors. Been there, done that!
