If corn is one of your favorite ingredients, there are many ways in which to prepare it so you won’t get bored.

Featuring a mix of American dishes and Latin American inspired cuisine, Steuben’s has a rich menu of flavorful dishes. One popular appetizer available at the restaurant is the Mexican corn which is grilled corn dusted with spices and cotija cheese.
