Cherokee Cattle Company

Phyllis and I visited this restaurant recently.We were driving around, looking for a place we hadn't tried before, and ended up in their parking lot. These are the same folks, by the way, who bring us Marietta Diner, Marietta Fish Market and Pasta Bella.

Let me tell you, this is a man's man restaurant! The decor is cowhand inspired, for sure. Texas license plates and old tin ad signs adorn the walls. The lighting is by antler chandeliers, the floor and walls are like barn boards. The building is divided into several dining areas. Don't ask me how many, every turn seemed to yield another set of tables.

We both ordered one of the early bird specials (you have to arrive between 4 and 6pm), which goes for $13.99. I ordered the 12 oz NY Strip with Garlic Mashed Potatoes, and Phyllis got the same strip with a Baked Potato. The dinner comes with a salad and a piece of cheese bread.

Our steaks were thick, and cooked to perfection. No sauce needed here. The portions were large (the baked potato was normal), and that includes the sweet tea.

Our server, Tony, took good care of us. He was attentive without being overbearing.

If you go to their website at, you can view their menu. They have a good lunch menu with the occasional $5.99 special. This is a good place for people with a good appetite.
