Bill Been, along with his wife Jo Anna, fired up the ovens at Myron’s in 2003. Bill, whose first name is actually Myron, spent over 20 years working for several well-known steakhouses perfecting his art before he and Jo Anna decided to venture out on their own. The Been’s first steakhouse was, and still is, housed in a remodeled 1924 movie theater in downtown New Braunfels, Texas. Should you be called to the restaurant’s office, you’d find yourself in the theater’s projection booth!
The New Braunfels location continues to be a resounding success and is constantly named one of the best places to eat in New Braunfels. Bill and Jo Anna’s daughter, Jenny, and husband Steve, have taken over the reins managing the New Braunfels restaurant. Patrons enjoy the restaurant’s intimate booths, ornately stamped tin ceilings, and perfect lighting. In 2011, the Beens decided to make it easier for folks in San Antonio to partake in their wares by opening a second location in Alon Town Centre at the corner of NW Military Highway and Wurzbach Parkway. The new location’s more modern atmosphere is decidedly different as compared to the New Braunfels location – featuring a very large bar with outside seating, a dedicated wine room, and overall “Texas Modern” decor (you’ll have to see it to understand). However, while the Been’s restaurants both have tasteful, inviting ambiance, they are more famous for their steaks, wine and service. Recent accolades include: “Best Steakhouse 2016″ – San Antonio Magazine, “Diners’ Choice Winner 2016″ –OpenTable and Wine Spectator’s 2016 Award of Excellence.
Myron’s Prime Steakhouse is open nightly and boasts Chicago prime beef (the top 2% of all prime beef in the United States), a full bar and an extensive wine list featuring wines by the glass and bottle.
