House of Beef, Oakdale CA

Not Your Ordinary Restaurant

House of Beef is more than just a family friendly restaurant. We offer choice grade cuts in our retail center, catering services for all occassions, and custom cutting and packaging in our processing and smoking facility.

Established 1979

Family Owned

The House of Beef in Oakdale was founded April 2, 1979 by Steve and Cindi Medlen. Steve is a 3rd generation meat processor who learned the trade from his father and uncles. In the mid 1980’s Steve built his first BBQ on wheels and began barbequing steaks, ribs and chicken at local events. Ever expanding, by 1989 House of Beef included a state of the art smoke house, a vacuum tumbler used for tenderizing meat, and additional meat packing equipment. 

By the late 1990’s Steve had a complete food processing facility, a second kitchen, and the restaurant you see today. Steve remains true to his roots and continues to offer full-service meat processing such as custom smoking & curing of ham, bacon, fish and poultry, the processing of custom ranch-raised animals, and providing USDA Choice meats for home use and large social events.
