Cattlemen’s Steakhouse in Oklahoma City inducted into Steak House Hall of Fame

The Cattlemen’s Steakhouse in Oklahoma City will be inducted today into the inaugural class of the National Steak House Hall of Fame.

Cattlemen’s at 1309 S. Agnew Ave. in the stockyards area of south Oklahoma City isn’t on Route 66, but it’s so iconic that many Route 66ers take a short side trip to it anyway.

According to The Oklahoman, the ceremony will take place at 5 p.m. today at the restaurant to honor it and its owner Dick Stubbs.

The Steak House Hall of Fame, a list of individually owned and operated steak houses across the nation, was founded by Bob Sambol, founder and owner of the original Bob’s Steak & Chop House in Dallas.

‘Cattlemen’s is the oldest continuously operating restaurant in Oklahoma City,’ Stubbs said. ‘So, to be recognized nationally in this industry is humbling. We love serving customers from all over the world and are incredibly proud to be a gathering place for all kinds of folks who love great service and just a great steak dinner.’

Operated continuously since 1910, the restaurant serves steaks, calf fries and more to those who visit in the heart of Oklahoma’s bustling Stockyards City.

‘We chose Cattlemen’s because of its rich history and, of course, the superb quality and preparation of their steaks,’ said Sambol in the news release announcing Cattlemen’s induction.

‘We are extremely selective when determining which steakhouses deserve Hall of Fame status. You could circle the globe looking for the perfect steak and have a tough time finding one better than Cattlemen’s. They put their heart, soul, and reputation into every meal they serve.’

Cattlemen’s is one of seven being inducted into the Steak House Hall of Fame and Oklahoma’s only inductee.
