The Gambling Cowboy

Located in the heart of Old Town Temecula, brings a new standard to local casual fine dining. Expansive views from our third floor deck and elegant turn of the century setting offer an intimate and inviting atmosphere. Our Classic Steak and Seafood menu features only the highest quality aged Midwestern corn-fed beef along with many other sumptuous selections. We offer an impressive wine list featuring vintages from many local wineries and from the finest regions of the world.

My wife and I eat all over the world, but always crave The Gambling Cowboy in Temecula. This family owned and operated steak and chop house offers 'the' best flavors we've ever enjoyed.

Diane Lynn

Well how do you describe how incredible the food is at this restaurant? The FINEST steaks, and if you've never had their baked potatoes, you need to put it on your bucket list!

Sharon Desposito

We were celebrating our wedding anniversary, and enjoy coming here to do so. My husband always enjoys there prime ribs. I had the salmon which was also done perfectly.
