Black Angus Steakhouse is a comfortable place to enjoy steaks in Buena Park, CA
Down the street from Knott’s Berry Farm is Black Angus
on Beach Boulevard in between the 91 Freeway and Orangethorpe Avenue. The
interior decor is like a ranch house with wooden walls. Rancher and rodeo
photos adorn the walls. The booths have western flare with polished wood tables
and cozy booth seats. The service is friendly and attentive. Right when you
sit, they bring over their delicious warm, sweet molasses bread and whipped butter.
All of their entrees are partnered with any two of
their 16 Craveable Sidekicks. Choose from Garden Salad, Caesar Salad, Wedge
Salad with Bleu cheese dressing, Coleslaw, Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Western Wild
Rice, French Fries, Wild West Onion Rings, Classic Baked Potato, Loaded Baked
Potato, Loaded Baked Potato Soup, Steak Soup, Sweet Potato Fries with maple
dipping sauce, Green Beans sautéed with bacon, Steamed Broccoli with shaved
Parmesan. The Caesar Salad is nicely tossed with Caesar dressing and croutons
and topped with Parmesan shavings. But the dressing has a bit too much mayo
which makes it a little too thick. It needs to be thinned out just a little.
The Full-Flavor 16 oz. Ribeye Steak was cooked a
perfect rare with great grill marks on the outside with a nice cool, red
center. The Steamed Broccoli with shaved Parmesan was steamed to perfection.
The parmesan cheese added a nice salty, creamy flavor. Thumbs up with 5 stars!
The Full Pound Cut Prime Rib is served with your
choice of fresh or creamy horseradish sauce and au jus. The prime was perfectly
seasoned, seared, and slow-roasted with the meat being juicy and succulent. The
French Fries were okay, nothing out of the ordinary. Thumbs up with 4 stars!
If you are couples dining, consider the Campfire Feast
for Two. Start with warm, sweet molasses bread. Choose any Steakhouse Starter
to share. Choose any two of these entrees: 8 oz. Top Sirloin, 12 oz. New York,
12 oz. Ribeye, 8 oz. Prime Rib, 6 oz. Filet Mignon, Grilled King Salmon, or
Fire-Grilled Chicken. Each entrée is served with any two Craveable Sidekicks.
Round out your feast with any one of their decadent desserts.
Crispy Fried Garlic-Pepper Zucchini are served with
their cool cucumber dip. The zucchini is crispy and light. Be careful as they
are exceedingly hot being delivered right out of the fryer. The cucumber
dipping sauce is very similar to tzatziki sauce in Greek cuisine – cool,
refreshing, and tasty. Our server also brought over some ranch dressing which complimented
the dish nicely as well. Thumbs up with 5 stars!
The 12oz. Full-Flavor Ribeye Steak is just as good as
the 16 oz. They proudly serve Black Angus beef that is aged a minimum of 21
days. The steak was well-seasoned and perfectly cooked. Sweet Potato Fries with
maple dipping sauce were crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. The
creamy sauce added a light sweetness. Green Beans sautéed with bacon were
perfectly cooked, still bright green (the beans, not the bacon). The bacon also
added a salty, smoky flavor. Thumbs up with 5 stars!
The Chocolate Chip Cowboy Cookie is a
hot-from-the-oven giant chocolate cookie topped with Breyers Vanilla ice cream.
This reminds me of my childhood, fresh baked chocolate chip cookies and the ice
cream just puts it over the top. As the ice cream melts, it becomes a vanilla
sauce that you can soak up with the cookie. Thumbs up with 5 stars!
Fresh Berry Cowboy Cookie is a hot-from-the-oven,
deep-dish sugar cookie crowned with fresh strawberries, blackberries,
blueberries, and Breyers Vanilla ice cream. This is like a decadent berry tart
with the sugar cookie acting as a crust with the berries and ice cream as the
filling. Again, the melting ice cream forms a great vanilla sauce for the
berries and you can soak it up with the cookie. Thumbs up with 5 stars!
