Viewers voted Tropical Acres as the number 1 steakhouse in South Florida.
The restaurant has been open since 1949, and owners say they jumped into action as soon as they heard about the contest.
Owner Jack Studiale shared his secret. "We put a little placard in the lobby with your website, and as people were leaving we gave them one and said 'Would you please vote for us as best steakhouse?'"
Jack and his sister Carolyn are third-generation owners and say they are thrilled that they won.
