Viewing the National Stockyard Exchange is a step back into history. The Cattleman's Restaurant serves steaks that are superb. Exchange Ave. and Agnew St. offers western wear for all ages.

We always make a stop in the stockyards each time we travel to OK city. Love the shops and cattlemen for food. Make sure to visit the Native American shop, especially if you admire true American Indian products.

I was pretty disappointed with this neighborhood. There are a few shops but nothing much to see. Go only to have lunch or dinner at the Cattlemen's Cafe.

The Oklahoma National Stockyards is the last of its kind in the United States. In the late 19th century and early 20th century, nearly every major city in the U.S. had a terminal stockyard. Some of the largest included Chicago, Omaha and Ft. Worth. Only a handful lasted into the 21st century. When the yards at South St. Paul and... More

Cattlemen's steakhouse is a must do every time we visit Oklahoma. The food is remarkable, the atmosphere is a genuine midwest experience with REAL cowboys coming in to dine, and the staff has always been excellent. After an excellent meal a walk around town is a must.

We thought we would go out here has one of the districts to see. Once we drove out there, it was all of 2 streets with just a few western stores and not much else. The main attraction out there is the steakhouse. Not much to see

This is worth seeing: how baby cows are auctioned, to be fattened up, slaughtered, and eaten. Really, as a carnivore, you should go see and understand.

I went in the evening after dinner and it was all shut down. If I am ever back I will make it a point to see the action throughout the day. Very cool place with a lot of history.

If you go on sale days, you can walk over all the pens full of cattle. You can also walk to the auction building and eat a pretty good burger. But, you really need to eat at Cattlemans if you are in this area. You can also go shopping in many shops located nearby. There is a lot to do... More

Small enclosures, over crowded pens, all the cattle were so terrified that they ran the opposite direction when you even looked in their direction. Not to mention they have them on brick so they couldn't get their footing and were falling over themselves. I wish I knew what to expect because I never would have gone here!
