As much as we love indulging in a juicy ribeye or flavorful sirloin at our favorite nearby steakhouse, there's an equal thrill in cooking our go-to cuts of meats at home — and achieving that same delicious taste. One of our favorite ways to level up the at-home cooking experience is by buying meat straight from our favorite restaurants, a phenomenon that's growing steadily nationwide. An increasing number of steakhouses offer butcher-cut meats for sale to patrons. And chances are, some of your favorite steakhouses, both local and national, are getting in on the trend.
Many independent steakhouses now have on-site butcher shops for takeout or delivery, serving a variety of USDA Prime beef options, including sought-after cuts such as filet mignon, ribeye, New York strip steak, and more. Even restaurant chains, including hotspots such as Texas Roadhouse and Fogo de Chao, offer virtual butcher shops so that you can treat yourself or someone special to a selection of premium meats without leaving the house.
Ahead, we've come up with a list of 11 steakhouses that will sell you meat you can cook for yourself. Several even come with the restaurant's signature seasonings, to ensure that the flavor you get at home mirrors that of the dine-in experience.

Attention, Texans: If you haven't yet discovered B&B Butchers, now is the perfect time to get acquainted. The company operates as both an upscale steakhouse and butcher, with locations in both Forth Worth and Houston. You can either make a reservation to dine in or swing by the restaurant's adjoining butcher shop. The shop specializes in custom hand-cut selections of Texas and Japanese wagyu beef, genuine A5-certified Kobe beef, and in-house dry-aged USDA Prime beef. On the menu, you'll also find the restaurant's beloved thick-cut bacon, ready-to-cook hot dogs, and specialty sausages.
B&B Butchers also offers grill packages that start at $60. A TX Burger Box comes with four Butcher Burgers, half a pound of American cheese, one pound of Applewood smoked bacon, sautéed onions, truffle aioli and green peppercorn Sauce, and Martin's Potato Buns.

Fogo De Chão
Fogo de Chão's all-you-can-eat meat experience has a global presence, with over 70 locations, and it's safe to say that it's undoubtedly a must-try for all carnivores. The fun of endlessly saying "yes" to picanha, linguica, and other cuts is a hard-to-beat experience, but the upscale Brazilian chain's online butcher shop is the next best thing. There, you can purchase the same quality cuts found in the steakhouse for home cooking. And you can rest assured that it's fresh. Per the restaurant, its meats are carved daily by skilled Brazilian-trained chefs, ready to be grilled to perfection at home.
The pricing is competitive, especially considering the in-restaurant experience, which typically costs around $75 for continuous tableside service, depending on the location. Online, a pound and a half of linguica (sausage) is priced at $22, while a pound of frango (chicken) goes for $14. Steak cuts are pricier, starting at $16 for an 8-ounce cut and reaching up to $175 for a luxurious 30-ounce Wagyu porterhouse. Conveniently, you can either pick up your order from the nearest Fogo de Chão or have it shipped directly to your doorstep.

And while you sadly can't get that experience in your own home, that's not to say the rest of Murray's meat isn't highly covetable. The steakhouse sells various meat packages hand-cut by its in-house butcher to throw on your grill. Prices start at $45 for a 12-ounce New York strip, an 18-ounce ribeye, or a 10-ounce beef filet and go up to $180 for a grill kit that includes four cuts of your choice. As a bonus, each package comes with Murray's signature seasoning to help you recreate the authentic Murray's Steakhouse taste. Just remember to place your order 48 hours in advance to secure yours.

You'll come for the steak and stay for the atmosphere at Kau in Greensboro, North Carolina. The stylish, tavern-inspired restaurant boasts an expansive meat-filled menu and an in-house butcher shop. Kau launched in 2019 (after a rebranding), as the brainchild of chef Kayne Fisher. "I spent summers with my grandparents in Detroit, and when my grandfather got off from Chrysler, we'd go to a deli or a butcher shop, grab some meat and we'd cook that night's meal. I was always intrigued by the idea of a market and butchery. Since the age of 15, I have had the concept in mind, and this space allowed that to come to life," Fisher told YES! Weekly.
After you eat, you can wander straight from the dining room to the butcher shop to explore its selection. While the butcher shop requires you to place orders before noon for same-day pickup, its array of USDA Prime beef tips, bone-in ribeyes, and short ribs, among other premium cuts, is open for your admiration at any time. You can place orders ahead of time via Kau's website and select the ideal pickup day and time for you, or ring the butcher shop directly. There's also a range of dry goods available that you can shop without ordering ahead of time, so you won't have to leave empty-handed.
