TEXARKANA, Ark. — Cattleman's Steak House has been announced as an inductee into the Department of Arkansas Heritage's Food Hall of Fame.

"It is a great honor to have won this," owner Joe Oliver said. "But this goes to our crew, our employees, who worked hard to get us this."

Joe Oliver, along with his family that established and continues to operate the place, has seen many changes in Texarkana, especially the area where his family established their restaurant.

But during all that time, he says consistency and quality have been the key that has kept multiple generations coming to his place.

"We've cooked our steaks the same way since the beginning. Cattleman's is about giving the customer a good value at a reasonable price," he said.

Oliver is proud of Cattleman's being recognized by the Food Hall of Fame.

"We are happy the State of Arkansas recognized a restaurant in the southwest part of the state. Specifically in Texarkana. We were chosen out of over 150 restaurants in our category, along with two others. It is good to see restaurants in this area of the state given notice," he said.

Other winners include:

Ed Walkers Drive-In & Restaurant of Fort Smith (Sebastian County)

Murry's Restaurant of Hazen (Prairie County)

Scott McGehee of Little Rock (Pulaski County)

Internationa Greek Food Festival (Pulaski County)

The Ohio Club of Hot Springs (Garland County)
