Welcome to The Ranch Downtown! We’re a specialty shop and event venue located in historic downtown Wharton, Texas. The Ranch Downtown features two spaces. Our "Market" is located on Polk Street, and offers ranch-raised Brahman beef from B.R. Cutrer as well as a seasonal selection of Go Texan items like seasonings, produce, soups, clothing, leather items, gifts, and crafts from local farms and artisans.

The front space of The Ranch Downtown, facing Milam Street, is our private event space and local hangout. You'll find us open on select Fridays and Saturdays featuring acoustic singers, steak nights, farm to table dinners and more.  We are proud to be listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Owned and operated by your friends at B.R. Cutrer, The Ranch Downtown is committed to bringing the best of our small-town Texas bounty directly to you, all year long.


Wharton's Classy and Cozy Social Space

Meet up with your friends along the square at The Ranch Downtown, located at 243 W. Milam Street. This social space features an intimate, cozy ranch atmosphere and a private event space.

We are proud to serve Braman Wines, one of the best Texas wines from a great Texas ranching family. Join us at least once a month with our "Friday Nights at The Ranch" evenings featuring live, acoustic performances from local Texas artists.

Brahman Beef - Our Flagship Product

B.R. Cutrer leans on a 150-year family history of Brahman cattle ranching. Brahman beef is proven to be lower in saturated fats and higher in omega-3 and omega-6 polyunsaturated fats than all other varieties, making it the healthiest beef available on the market.

At The Ranch Downtown, we serve only the freshest, hand-cut Brahman beef straight from B.R. Cutrer. All of our beef is USDA-certified, pasture-raised, grass-fed, grain-finished, and hormone-free. From lean ground beef to flank steak, filet mignon, top sirloin, New York strip, and more, you’re sure to find the cuts you’re looking for to make mealtime at home truly special.
