Are you the kind of person who searches for food deals on the internet? Or even buys Groupons that give certain discounts on food? There are entire websites dedicated to this exact phenomenon yet no one has been able to find this fantastic $15.75 Ribeye dinner offered daily at this local Northern California restaurant. But there’s a catch…

What would you do to get a good price on a steak dinner? A steak dinner that comes with a house salad, baked potato, and even sliced sourdough bread. A normal dinner of this magnitude would generally cost around TWICE the price of this inexpensive wonder. To get this deal you’ll need to visit:

Palo Cedro Inn (Palo Cedro, CA)

The Palo Cedro Inn is a steakhouse and bar offering what has to be the best steak dinner deal in the north state. All while quietly keeping its secret from the masses.

This deal is so great because the restaurant provides a gas grill for patrons to grill their own steak. Everything one would need to perfectly cook a steak over a gas grill is available to use during this fun experience. The great quality of meat mixed with you own cooking skills make this one of the best deals in Northern California.

This writer has absolutely no problem cooking a 12 oz ribeye over someone else’s grill, while enjoying a frosty beverage from their full bar. Did I forget to mention they have a full bar?

You can’t deny a $16 steak dinner is one heck of a good deal, but you’ll need to decide for yourself if cooking your own steak is worth it for you.
