Besides Westside Drive-In's ice cream potato, Barbacoa's hot rock filet might be one of the most famous dishes in Boise. But when it comes to some of the most expensive cuts of meat you can order, where does it stack up?

Turns out, at $60 the signature flaming steak isn't even the most expensive steak on Barbacoa's menu. That title belongs to their Cowboy Rib Eye, which is $15 more expensive. Even at $75, that's nowhere near the most expensive steak in the Treasure Valley.

It's not uncommon for a pound of certified A5 grade Japanese Wagyu to sell for more than $200 a pound.
