While you are exploring Oklahoma City’s rough-and-tumble past, you are likely to rustle up an appetite. Lucky for you, Cattlemen’s Steakhouse in the heart of Stockyards City is home to some of the world’s best cowboy grub around.
Cattlemen’s is an Oklahoma City staple with a history as rich as its decadent homemade desserts. It opened its doors in 1910 and served the cowpokes who came through during cattle drives. Cattlemen’s was notorious as one of the few places that stayed open after sundown, and during Prohibition it was very popular for its less-than-legal liquid libations.
The restaurant is still very popular today, albeit for different reasons. Cattlemen’s is the perfect place to go for a USDA prime grade of steak, aged by a closely-guarded secret recipe. And when you eat at Cattlemen’s, you will be in good company. The restaurant has been graced by sitting presidents (former Pres. George H.W. Bush), movie legends (John Wayne) and sports commentators (Charles Barkley).
