Owner and sole proprietor of the Best Steak House, Ari Katras, came to the United States from Greece in 1971, seeking a better life.

Ari started off as a chanter for his church and busboy at a Minneapolis diner until he saved enough money to start his own restaurant.

On September 18, 1973, Ari opened the Best Steak House on White Bear and Larpentuer.

Ari takes pride in having provided the community with high quality steaks at affordable prices for over 45 years.
