Midwest Living Review
The steaks are well seasoned, juicy and cooked exactly to order at this new rural eatery near the intersection of Highway 2 and US-83. You won't find much else in the area, but when you smell the baby back ribs coming off the smoker in back of the restaurant, you really won't care.
Owner Cory "The Brahmer" Griebel is also a rodeo clown and bullfighter, and the decor seems fitting for his background: The dining room is almost completely unstained knotty pine with swinging saloon-style doors.
Prices are reasonable and fair, with the large steaks clocking in at less than $20 and weekend dinner specials for under $10. The iceberg lettuce salads that kick off meals aren’t anything special, but the entrees are delicious. A small ribeye steak ($16.99) is tender and offers great charcoal flavor. Likewise, the brisket ($9.99) is fantastic, served alongside cowboy potatoes laced with red peppers and onions. Among a dessert selection that takes in an array of pies, the cherry ($1.50) stands out with perfectly flaky crust and sweet filling.
Brahmer's is open weekdays and weeknights until 9 p.m. and on Sundays for brunch. Closed Mondays.
