Our Roots

In 1960, the restaurant was opened as "Laughner's Steer In". In 1964, Harold Phillips purchased the restaurant and was the owner until 2007. It was known as "Harold's Steer In". In November 2007, the Kehrer family purchased it and changed the name to "Historic Steer In".

We have several of the original recipes, including the signature burger Twin Steer, Cole Slaw and Cream Pie. Our menu has expanded with several of our family recipes. Fresh made Pizza has also been added. Dine In, Take Out, Delivery and Catering is available. 

We would like to thank everyone for the continued support for this East Side restaurant!
