Winston-Salem, North Carolina: Steakhouse Bull (Gone)

The original Staley's Charcoal Steakhouse operated from 1957 to 2003, and the fiberglass cow was the mascot. The current restaurant was keeping the bull in view on a trailer.

Steakhouse Bull at Old Staley's Grill

There's a couple of those steakhouse giant cow statues in Winston-Salem. One is on a trailer next to a place that actually used to be a vintage steakhouse. Staley's Charcoal Steak House was open from 1957 to 2003, and the cow was a regular fixture during that time. Several restaurants have been there since the closing of Staley's, but the current one, known as Old Staley's Grill & Ale, has retained the big cow. Glad to see it's still around.

[Dean Jeffrey, 12/31/2011]

Built in 1957, the bull -- known locally as "Winston the Bull," or "The Staley's Bull" -- is 11 feet tall and 21 feet long. It disappeared in 1968, 1990, and 2012 when the restaurant changed owners, but it has always returned.
