Cattlemen's Steakhouse Compliment - Great steak!

Review by 14600 on 2007-06-04
OKLAHOMA CITY, OKLAHOMA -- I pretty much avoid the modern corporate casual dining experience – the plastic burns my eyes. I much rather eat at a local place owned and operated by locals. Cattlemen's Cafe is such a place. An Oklahoma original located in the heart of the Oklahoma City stockyards.

If you're idea of steak is going to one of those themed interstate places where the meat goes straight from the Sysco truck to the grill than to your plate well then you haven't eaten steak. Cattlemen's uses top quality beef aged using their own secret process. All steaks are hand-cut by the in-house butcher an cooked to perfection. The steaks are flavorful, juicy and perfectly prepared. The house salad dressing is good beyond belief and even the baked potato is cut above the rest. The decor is a casual throwback to the wide open days of the Oklahoma City stock yards. The prices are very reasonable – 25 bucks will get you the T-bone dinner that was a fave of former president George Bush. The house specialty is lamb fries (DE'LISH). I know bovine genitalia doesn't sound appetizing to most but it IS to die for.. Honestly, the proper preparation of cow reproductive organs is a lost art. Anyway, if you are ever in OKC I would highly recommend Cattlemen's Steakhouse. It's simply awesome!

My Sis's oncologist moved from Johns Hopkins in Baltimore to OKC. She still goes to him for her annual checkups. After receiving her clean bill of health, she goes to Cattlemen's to celebrate. Then the meany calls me to make me drool over the fantastic meal she's had. She says it's better than the places they frequent in DC--Ruth's Chris, Morton's, Prime Rib, etc.

number1svc - Yeah, there are other places called Cattlemens (one in Ft. Worth those silly Texans) but the one in OKC is unique and not franchised. It's the one and only.

Ponie - I hope your Sis gets to celebrate for many years to come!

Thanks, Stew. I hope so, too.

OK, number1, I'll bite--what are 'bean girls?' Guess I've led a sheltered life. :)

I eat there a few time’s in the mid 70’s and it was OK. The food was stuck in the 50's, iceberg lettuce with mayonnaise dressing, steaks were fair but nothing to write home about. I expected much more from Oklahoma. Baked potato arrived naked, toppings, upon request, showed up in numerous little plastic containers.

I would give it a 2 star rating.

Lidman, I don't know what kind of hippy psychedelic drug induced trip you were on in the 70s but the place you described isn't cattlemen's. Back then Liddy, we're you marching for free love and to stop the war in your tie-dye shirt & long hair with a peace sign painted on your rear. Excuse me if I call into question your drug stained memories.

Ponie,the bean girls are girls that come around to the tables,and ask if you want beans(they carry a big pot of baked beans)(and they are usually hot)

This was a nice review Stewart, until we got to the "lamb fries" part. Some of us here most certainly can do without hearing about your fascination with "bovine genitalia". You scarf down a steak, a spud and salad then put THAT in your mouth? How about a COLD BEER? Btw, we call them Rocky Mountain Oysters" and just the site of one of those things at the grocer gives me the willies!

Recently, on the food network, they were doing a show on BBQ. Did you know that 90% of restaurants use the same brand of BBQ sauce? That brand is Cattleman's. Sounds like my kinda place. And zzrokk, just because you don't like something, doesn't mean others can't. The Food Network recently had a series where a chef and food critic went around to foriegn countries eating things you and possibly I would never want to see on our plate. But hey, that is how those people eat, and they think some of what we eat is pretty doggone sickening, too.

Stew, once again you are wrong and maybe that is because you are on drugs. I bet you would have been a draft dodger if you were old enough to have been one. But FYI back then I was raising three children and was signed up for the draft as well.

I stopped doing drugs when I was 19, why can’t you stop now? Never wore a tie-dye shirt or had any peace signs anywhere but I had hair half way down my back till I got married. But because you are on drugs I looked it up for you so we could all see how little you really know. As you can see the Cattlemen’s has been around since 1910. OK Gomer read the rest and next time you google up something at least read what you post.

Cattlemen's Café opened its doors to hungry cowboys, ranchers, cattle haulers and the like in 1910. The Stockyards City area was a beehive of activity back then, as herds of cattle were driven to Oklahoma City in an unending stream to satisfy the East's growing demand for beef.

Lidman you don't make any sense not even by accident. Where did I state what year this restaurant was opened? I merely stated by your description it was obvious you've never been there. Why are you so fascinated with me? Why do you stalk me with your juvenile rhetoric? Like anybody else would be I am flattered by your fascination with me but your juvenile comments are not welcomed on my most excellent reviews.

Stew, you hate to be wrong don't you and you don't seem to deal with it very well. Maybe next time you troll after me just because you want to be me you will think about what you are saying.

The truth is you are a young punk with no real life experience, just a big mouth and a lot of googles.

Star, if you choose to put REPRODUCTIVE ORGAN parts in your mouth that is fine with me. Just don't ask to use my CHAPSTICK. : )
