A TikToker’s video showing a steak and being cut at a restaurant table as a man explains why he sent it back a total of three times has stoked the fire of critical viewers.
Posted by @chromenipples25 on Aug. 8, the video has been viewer more than 1.5 million times. In the video, the poster explains that being a Texan, he cooks his steak all the way through, saying that less “done” methods of cooking steak are for “yankees” and Californians.
“So I had to send this steak back three times to get them to cook it right,” he says in the video. “All the way through. Cook it all the way through. I told them, ‘I’m not a yankee. I’m not from California. I’m from Texas. We cook our steaks all the way through, don’t we?'”

However, many of the more than 14,000 people who commented on the video strongly disagreed, writing that the poster wasn’t a “true” or “real” Texan for not liking steak a bit pink.
“As a Texan, I think I speak for everyone one in Texas, we DO NOT cook our steaks ‘all the way through,'” one commenter wrote. “Medium rare or rare. That’s it. PERIOD.”
“All the way through?” another commenter wrote. “In Texas? That’s not even American.”
“I live in Texas and have never met anyone here who likes an overcooked steak like that!” a commenter wrote.
Other commenters called the man brave for sending a dish back to the kitchen three times and being confident enough to eat it.
“I have finally met the bravest man ever!” one commenter wrote. “Send a steak back three times then still eat it! lmfao tell Me you’ve never worked in the restaurant business without saying you’ve never worked in the restaurant industry!”
“Just to let u know by sending it three times back you got some extra ingredients on it lol,” another commenter wrote.
“First, you’re eating steak wrong,” a commenter wrote. “Second, the kitchen definitely messed with your food my friend lol.”
