The owner of The Rodeo Restaurant is Eldon Day. He is a hometown guy born and raised in Okmulgee County. His love of Rodeo started back in 1974 and Steer Wrestling was his event of choice after meeting Roy Duvall. Over the next 20+ years he was the Steer Wrestler and then later became the Hazer. He bought, trained and sold Steer Wrestling horses and won three championships over the years in the CRA, CRRA and IPRA.

After leaving the Rodeo world, he became more of an entrepreneur and wanted to give back to the Okmulgee community. He met Chef Gabriel Calderon DelGado and decided to open a Mexican restaurant called EL Don's in downtown Okmulgee. After selling that establishment, he returned to remodeling homes in the area but Gabriel was ready to enter into another restaurant venture and The Rodeo in Morris was established in February 2021. It only seems fitting that the decor of the restaurant stems back to his love of the sport of Rodeo.

Our Mexican chef, Gabriel Calderon DelGado was trained by renowned Mexican Cobian Chef Armando. The quality of his cooking is unparalleled in the area, it is Tex Mex at its best!

Our American cooks, have a total of 75+ years of experience creating delicious homestyle cooking from the Chicken Fried Steak to Hot rolls with honey butter. You will think you are back at your grandma's table.
