As home to the Oklahoma National Stockyards, the world's largest stocker-feeder cattle market, we know a thing or two about good beef here in OKC. We also have our share of great steakhouses in which to enjoy a good cut of beef. So it should come as no surprise that one of our most venerable institutions, Cattlemen's Steakhouse, was recently chosen by The Daily Meal as No. 4 on their list of "America's 20 Best Steakhouses." Below is what they had to say about Oklahoma City's oldest continually operating restaurant:
"The no-frills temple to the noble steer is as popular with cowboy-hatted locals as it is with former President George H. W. Bush when he's in town, and one look at what's on everybody's plate - beef, for breakfast, lunch, and dinner - will tell you what this place is all about, as will the giant illuminated photo of grazing cattle along the back wall. The beef here is sourced locally, aged "according to a closely guarded house secret," the website says, portioned out on-premises, broiled under an intense charcoal fire, and served with natural jus. Go for the T-bone after your appetizer of lamb fries (don't be afraid, they're good), and finish it off with a slice of homemade pie. Now that's a country steak dinner we can love."
