 While we are eager to fire up our grills and open our doors to our dear guests, we don't feel the time is quite right yet. Therefore are waiting until early or mid June to reopen. It is important to us to do our part to keep our employees and guests safe. So over the next few weeks as we navigate the new regulations and consider the sensitivity of the situation, we will be making some changes to our restaurant and operating procedures. We are also making cosmetic improvements in our restaurants that we are excited for you to see! But don't worry - the premium steaks and the Rube's grilling experience that you love will still be here! Check our Facebook page or website often for updates.

Be well, steak lovers!

A Shared Love of Steak

It all started in 1973 when Glen Rubenbauer "Rube" opened a tavern in tiny Montour, Iowa. His philosophy was to provide generously-portioned, hand-cut premium steaks and allow guests the experience of grilling themselves over an indoor, open-hearth grill.

Word of Rube's quickly spread and people couldn't get enough of beefy, flavorful Rube's steaks. Soon, customers wanted to buy Rube's steaks to grill at home and give as gifts to friends and family. So in 1992 Rube's Meat Company opened, and began shipping fresh Rube's steaks nationwide.


More than 40 years later, Rube’s Steakhouse is still inspiring social connections around our open-hearth grills. And premium corn-fed steak is still at the heart of it all. Through a partnership with Iowa Premium, every steak we serve supports local family farmers raising black Angus within 150 miles of our steakhouse. Come taste the very best beef Iowa has to offer.
