Chute Rooster Steak House & Lounge

The Chute Rooster Steakhouse Restaurant and Lounge opened in 1971. It is an original ranch barn, refurbished and dedicated to cowboys, past and present. The term “Chute Rooster” is a cowboy reference to rodeo- wise-guys, who perch on the top of the chutes and know just how everything should be done and don’t mind telling about it. We invite you to browse, relax, and visit with us.  We want you to see our hayloft with the original hay track; the dance hall for square dancing and barn dances. We hope you enjoy our historical site, which is listed in the State and National Historical register.

Enjoy a full menu!
