Welcome to Red Ox Restaurant & Lounge!

Home of the famous "Ugly Steak", an Illinois Beef Association top five steakhouse.

If you are a first-time diner, we are delighted to have the opportunity to serve you. If you are a returning guest, we welcome you back and thank you for your continuing patronage! We take great pride in the quality and breadth of our dinner menu, our use of fresh, high quality ingredients, and the quality and consistency of each item offered. Since opening in December 1978, our menu has continuously evolved. This evolution has largely been based on the comments and suggestions received from our frequent guests. Our success is in no small part due to each of you who has taken the time to compliment, criticize and, importantly, suggest improvements. Our goal is to continue the traditions set by our founder, Jim Gardner, while offering you the service and quality that you expect. We wish you an excellent dining experience, and look forward to serving you in the future.
