The mere mention of steak has us rubbing our hands together in delight and bar owners know it. That's why they draw us in with bargain steak dinners--usually a house-cut ribeye with a side or two for under $20--on quiet nights. It's flattering, really, what they'll get up to in order to win us over. For your dining pleasure, here are some bar steak nights around town Monday through Thursday. (Photo: Saint Dane's)

The cheapest on the list at $10, this ribeye-and-two-sides deal is only one of the food attractions Saint Dane's offers during the week. Tuesdays bring taco night and Wednesday has half-priced wraps. If the flat screens get too loud, there's always room on the porch.
For some reason, steak night at the Volcano is a big draw for ladies and the patio is often occupied by women dishing dirt over cocktails and plate-sized ribeyes. We'll join them just for the Chimichurri sauce. For $15, expect a side salad with housemade dressing, garlicky mashed potatoes and flan for dessert.
Foodies may scoff at the idea of cheap steak, but if there's a place to change their minds it's Community Bar. Chef Bob changes his offerings each week but one Tuesday dinner included a 16-ounce ribeye, marinated and grilled outdoors, and the choice between four sides like spicy grilled pineapple and jalapeno mashed potatoes.
