I remember 3 steaks in my life to date. The last one, the worst one, and the steak I had at Golden Ox (the Best one)

The Golden Ox is definitely a KC icon- very old-school with dark interior and leather booths. It feels a bit like you've travelled back in time when you walk in.The food is great, though a bit pricey for what you are served. Open grill - so you get to watch your steaks prepared. The aspargus is awesome (wish they gave you more than 4 pieces)!

The Golden Ox is a relic. The place is old, run down, and tired. Maybe 40 years ago this was a hot spot but now it is slightly embarrassing. They should know when to quit. When I had lunch here recently the only people there were a few small groups of old men. I had a blackened chicken breast and it was overcooked and very spicy. The vegetables were way overcooked and the rest of the meal was quite mediocre. I wish this was a great retro place, but it is just has-been.

Best Steaks in KC! Love the old Stockyards "feel" to this place. Service is excellent and the garden salad and grilled Asparagas was superb!

65-year old steakhouse in what once was the Kansas City stockyards. Situated in the old Stockyard Exchange Building, you get a sense of how large an operation it once was.

The restaurant is very large and rustic. The meat dishes were outstanding, but fish dishes were reportedly dry. The baked potatoes were only luke warm. The best was an appetizer tray - great ribs and onion rings.
