Every town has one of those places, the one you "have" to go to. Often they get all hyped up and you end up disappointed in the end. Cattlemen's is NOT one of those places.
Cattlemen's is celebrating it's 100th anniversary this year. There is a good reason it's still in business after 100 years: great food, pure and simple.
Cattlemen's is still located in its original building on Agnew St in Stockyards City. The walls are dark panelled, the booths are deep red and there's a whole lot of cowboys stoppin' in for "supper"
Dinner is plain and simple:
House Salad with House Dressing
a ranch-like dressing but "more creamy and less salty" (this is what I was told, since I'm not really a salad dressing kind of girl)
Husband ordered Shrimp and Mashed Potatoes. The Shrimp were lightly coated and perfectly seasoned. Husband rated them 4/5 stars.
I went for my favorite cut - the Rib Eye.
This was the best steak in my recent memory. It was perfectly cut and perfectly cooked to Medium Rare +. Melt in your mouth perfection. The steak was perfect on it's own, but once they added the Au Jus Wow! Too good for words. 5/5 stars!
And who can forget the rolls...mmm
Our dinner companions.
If you're in the mood for a great steak Cattlemen's is a must.
The history is an added bonus.
