HOUSTON – One of Houston’s biggest names in fine dining is bringing the first-ever sit-down restaurant to the rodeo this season, Culture Map reported.

The Berg Hospitality Group is introducing The Ranch Saloon + Steakhouse, a restaurant divided into two concepts: an upscale steakhouse that accepts reservations and a more casual served saloon that will operate first-come, first-served.

“As a long-time rodeo fan and an active member of the Steer Auction Committee, we are excited to work with the Rodeo on this new concept and engage with rodeo attendees,” Berg Hospitality founder Ben Berg said in a statement, according to Culture Map. “This is a place where I’d want to go and hang out, grab a great meal, and listen to some live music before or after the main concert. Plus, we are very excited to also offer private dining options for rodeo committees or any larger groups who want to celebrate at the rodeo. The Ranch will have a little something for everyone.”

The restaurant, located in a climate-controlled tent near the southwest corner of the Astrodome, is the first of its kind at the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo.

According to Culture Map, both concepts’ menus will feature dishes served at Berg establishments B&B Butchers, The Annie Café & Bar, and B.B. Lemon.
