“Ranch House has its pluses”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

Great ribs, briskett and steak here, as well as those waffle fries and green chili slaw!. Service can be a tad slow and iffy in some respects. But spacious and a nice place overall for dinner. It's a bit of a drive south from the Plaza.

“I'd come back!”
Reviewed 31 March 2014

Good food selection, brisket was outstanding. We were three generations, and they accommodated the kids really nicely. Boisterous party of 12 next to us, and they moved us to a quieter spot immediately. Waffle fries in a basket were a big hit.

“Way over-rated restaurant”
Reviewed 7 March 2014

Went there for dinner last night as we are looking for catering for an event and everyone told us to get the food from this place. Service was ridiculously slow. I was almost ready to leave as the waitress brought us water then didn't come back for 10 minutes. Food was mediocre to bad. My wife's steak was too tough to eat. The sides were bad as well. What they called an enchilada was two tortillas with some cheese and runny frijoles refritos. I had the barbecue as that what we were thinking about getting for a party. There is little to no smoky taste. They say they smoke their brisket for 18 hours but no smoke ring and I did not see a smoker. The sides were good green chile cole slaw and potato salad. I would not go back and would not order meat for catering.

“Smokey Brisket”
Reviewed 4 March 2014 via mobile

We ordered the Brisket platter as well as the half rack of ribs. Both were great tasting and at a great price. Done forget the green chilli slaw. Wow. Would go back when in town again.

Poor management, rude staff, dry food, watered down drinks. Not a good experience. Spend your dollars elsewhere.
