According to the locals, Rolands Steak House makes the tastiest and juiciest steak in town. Their place is very low key and it is definitely not for fine dining.

Rolands Steak House used 100 percent local beef and does not mix pork or use meat that has already expired to keep prices down. All the meat comes direct from a known supplier, the same one that supplies meat to big companies that also need the same meat.
