During the American Civil War, a new breed of entrepreneur was born, the Cattle Barons. These immensely rich and powerful men, along with their cowboys moved millions of unattended Texan cattle vast distances across the Kansas plains to railheads for transport to market centres. This helped to generate income which stabilized the war-torn Texan economy. In the process, jerry-built cattle towns such as Abilene, Wichita & Dodge became infamous and the Cattle Barons became legends.

The Cattle Baron restaurant concept originated in 1987 in the heart of Bellville. Popular demand dictated the need to open more outlets and the many awards that have been won in the prestigious Steakhouse of the Year competition by various Cattle Baron branches over the past years bears testimony to our success story.
