Cattlemen's Beef Quarters celebrates 25 years of service at Iowa State Fair
The Cattlemen's Beef Quarters, a favorite dining destination for many who attend the Iowa State Fair, marks its 25th year of service to Iowans this year.
"A visit to the Cattlemen's Beef Quarters is a tradition for many who attend our great State Fair. We are proud to serve the highest quality beef to our customers and proud to have established ourselves as a true staple of the Fair experience," said John Mortimer, Manager.
According to Mortimer, the Cattlemen's Beef Quarters began its 25 year journey at the Fair to serve as an advocate for beef producers and their product. It is comprised of 69 county cattlemen's associations and is staffed by some 1,200 beef industry volunteers each year. These loyal Iowans serve about 70,000 customers annually and prepare some 35,000 pounds of beef during the 11-day event.
Mortimer says that the secret to 25 years of success is having a variety of menu items that will appeal to everyone from the casual, on-the-go diner, to those interested in a true sit down meal. The all beef menu includes such favorites as Prime Rib, the Mark and Gary Burger, beef taco salad or the Hot Beef Sundae. In celebration of their 25th anniversary, special daily discounts will apply to these and other menu favorites, according to Mortimer. Fairgoers are encouraged to stop by daily to take advantage of these one-time offers.
"One detail that makes us special is that we have something for everyone on our menu. Our menu has expanded and changed through the years, but one thing remains constant--it's all about the beef," said Mortimer.
