For nearly 40 years, Western Ribeye has been one of the most notable locally-owned restaurants in Evansville. But the owners thought it was time for a facelift.
For nearly 40 years, Western Ribeye has been one of the most notable locally-owned restaurants in Evansville. But the owners thought it was time for a facelift.

Today they're celebrating their new image. Mayor Lloyd Winnecke helped cut the ribbon this morning.

David and Dan Nix operate the restaurant their father started many years ago. While their business now has a new contemporary look, they say the food Western Ribeye's been known for will still be the same.

"It's an investment for the people of Evansville is what I like to say," said David Nix. "We're here to serve and service the people of Evansville and to be a part of the community. And our staff does that, and we enjoy it very much."

Nix showed the crowd the first customer ticket from the day they opened in 1975. An 8 ounce Ribeye steak back then cost just under $6.
