The Ranch House has excellent bbq. It's located way down south on Cerillos Rd and looks on the outside and inside like a nice southwestern chain restaurant but the bbq is what sets it apart. Friendly staff and comfortable seating as well as reasonable if slightly high prices are what to expect. The in house bbq cause is truly cause for joy. I can only speak to the quality of the brisket, corn bread, beans and potato salad, but they were excellent. The Ranch House also offers very tasty salads.

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.

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.

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.

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.
