A Siouxland steakhouse is receiving more national attention.

The owner of Archie’s Waeside Inn in Le Mars, Bob Rand, appeared on Fox Business News this week.

“We've had a lot of great things going for us, and one of them is the greatest cattle in the country are raised right here in northwest Iowa and northeast Nebraska,”

Rand’s grandfather founded Archie’s Waeside a couple of generations ago.  He was the son of Russian immigrants and worked in the stockyards of Chicago and Sioux City before opening the restaurant in 1949.

“We’ve had fantastic, loyal employees for 70 years that treat Archie’s like family.  We've just been very fortunate to have a very loyal customer following.”

The host of Fox Business news called Archie’s Waeside one of the best steakhouses in the world.
