Dairy Barn [gone]
Lake Charles, LA
Angelo's Steak Pit
Panama City Beach, FL
This Longhorn Bull was installed on the roof of this Dairy Barn location. This photo is from 2010. By 2014, the place had closed and the statue was gone.

Angelo's Steak Pit features a bull that goes by the name of "Big Gus". Angelo's opened in 1958 and this statue has been there since 1970. He was designed to be a Spanish bull but was supposedly transformed into a Longhorn. That seems unlikely since there is an identical statue in Waukon, IA. The owner of Angelo's was going to put other bull statues at two other locations. However, those restaurants were never built and the two bulls remain in storage. For more, see this website. [map]

2018:
This Longhorn Bull statue is located in front of Raul's Corral Mexican Food & Longhorn Ballroom. The place opened in 1950 as as Bob Wills' Ranch House. By 1958, it was known as the Longhorn Ranch. In 1967, the name was changed to the Longhorn Ballroom. The sign and Bull are probably from then. The Longhorn Bull's "RR" brand in the 2011 photos referred to the restaurant's owner, Raul Ramirez who operated the place from 1996-2017. In 2017, the new owner renovated the place. The Bull was repainted and the sign was reinstalled. The sign had been in storage since the 1990s when it was knocked over during a storm. For more, see this website. [map]
