Rube's St
eakhouse - The Original Grill Your Own

In 1973 Glen “Rube” Rubenbauer opened a cook-your-own steakhouse in Montour, Iowa with a simple philosophy - let folks select their own freshly cut, generously-portioned steak and then prepare it on an open hearth grill. Word spread quickly of this unusual restaurant, and soon steak lovers from across the nation were coming to Rube’s for what was being hailed as “the biggest, best steak anywhere.”

Now over forty years later, owners Matt and Michele Anderson have stayed true to what makes Rube’s so great - large, delicious steaks, a unique grilling experience and friendly, small-town service.

You can enjoy the Rube’s experience at two locations - the original Rube’s in Montour, Iowa or just west of Des Moines in Waukee, Iowa.

Rube’s has earned a nationwide following and several awards. Top 5 list for Best Steakhouse in Eastern Iowa, Top 5 list for Best Burgers in Iowa, the Iowa Beef Backer Award, among several others. Come on out and try it for yourself - you won’t be disappointed!
