Cattlemens is a Western-themed restaurant that was established in 1968 by a father and son who were previously ranchers. They decided that they wanted to bring steaks up a notch by providing an authentic Western-style steakhouse experience. Cattlemens has two locations in Rancho Cordova and Dixon, and remains true to its roots and practices. It still practices a lot of old-fashioned traditions, such as aging meat in house and employing meat cutters to give customers the best cuts of steak. Cattlemens’ menu features 10 choices of steaks, including a whopping two-pound Porterhouse, as well as ribs, seafood and surf and turf.

The building where Buckhorn Steakhouse sits today was once the historic DeVilbiss Hotel in 1889. Sadly, several disasters claimed the building and after restoration efforts, its original charm has been restored. Today, it’s the beautiful Buckhorn Steakhouse. From 1967 on, the Buckhorn dining room has slowly evolved into one of the best spots for a great steak in Northern California. The menu includes over 10 steak options, including 42-day aged beef that is hand cut on premise, and certified Angus beef steaks. Add ribs, lamb and a selection of seafood and Buckhorn Steakhouse is easily worth the drive to Winters.
