The results are in and the Sultan of Steaks has been named! The Bright Star Restaurant of Bessemer, Ala., is the winner of the Alabama's Best Steak contest, sponsored by the Alabama Cattlemen's Association. Since its inception on July 1, the contest recorded over 7000 online votes and 150 nominated restaurants across the state by consumers. On September 27, the “Top 5” restaurants were named based on the online vote tally and three anonymous judges were sent out to visit these restaurants in order to determine the winner. The Bright Star received the most total points by the judges based on the following categories: Appearance, Overall Flavor, Juiciness, and Tenderness.

Jimmy Koikos, co-owner of The Bright Star said, “What an honor! The Bright Star Restaurant is thrilled to be recognized by the Alabama Cattlemen's Association as serving the best steak in Alabama. The Bright Star has been serving fine steaks for over 105 years and is proud of our accomplishment with the Cattlemen's Association. Kudos to our Chefs and Servers who provide the delicious steaks and great dining experience for our guests. We want to share this award with our entire Bright Star family.”
