You can go right to enter El Tepeyac for their famous Mexican and American cuisine, or you can turn left to enter Lassen’s Steaks. El Tepeyac has become famous in the area for good old homemade food for breakfast, lunch and dinner, served at affordable prices with friendly service. Proprietor, Esther Faustino, has long enjoyed the restaurant business in Susanville and strives to offer the best to her customers. What many don’t know is that the other side of El Tepeyac is where they serve up the finest steaks available. In this dining room, you will find a quiet bar and plenty of quiet booths for that special night out. White linen tablecloths and fresh flowers set the scene for this fabulous cuisine. The steakhouse serves only Certified Black Angus Choice steaks and the flavor speaks for itself. The list of steaks on the menu is long with New Yorks, Filet Mignon, Rib Eyes, Porterhouse, Top Sirloin and their Angus Steak Brochette, which is served on a skewer with fresh mushrooms, bell peppers and onions. Steak prices range from $15.80 to $23.65. Additionally, steak specials are offered each night like their Delmonico Rib Eye, their own version of the steak made famous by the Delmonico Restaurant in New York City. Specials also include their Cowboy Chipotle Steak, the BBQ Flavor Rib Eye and their Flat Iron Steak, all prepared to order and delicious! Be sure to ask your server about their nightly specials. Yes, you can also order the pork chops and applesauce, grilled chicken breast smothered in a sauce of sauteed bell pepper, onion, mushrooms and cheese, or order it without the sauce. Southern Fried chicken is also a favorite at Lassen’s Steaks. These entrees range from $14.95 to $16.95 and trust me, you’ll never leave hungry. I especially enjoyed the option of adding grilled shrimp or prawns to any menu entree for just $6.95. A fish of the day is also offered at market price. Another thing you will love about Lassen’s Steaks is the fresh, delicious salad and bread served with your meal, along with your choice of baked, french fried or Delmonico potatoes. They offer a nice variety of wines and beer or the bartender can whip you up your favorite cocktail. Dessert is always delicious at Lassen’s Steaks, so save a little room. No worries, they will be happy to wrap your leftovers for later enjoyment at home. So what are you waiting for? Enjoy the peace and quiet, and the flavorful fare at Lassen’s Steaks anytime and know that they are eager to cater to your special occasion. They offer banquets and easily accommodate large parties at Lassen Steaks. Visit them soon at 1700 Main Street in Susanville, Susanville’s premiere fine dining establishment.
