We decided to try Big Thunder Ranch Barbeque for lunch on our 2nd day at Disneyland. We had to wait for a table , which was only 20 min. During the wait we were able to see the animals in the petting zoo, meet Woody from Toy Story and pet one of the horses. We were seated, placed our order... More

I made reservations to this restaurant 2 days prior to our visit. It was the best thing I could have done. It was so hectic at the park during the holidays and it was nice to get to the restaurant, bypass the lines of people and head straight for a table. When we got there, the service was on pointe,...

We were at Disneyland this past weekend over MLK Jr. Day and tried to walk up to Big Thunder Ranch BBQ to eat dinner on Saturday. That was when we learned that they book up way in advance. We were fortunate that they had a lunch opening the next day at 3:40 pm. Other reviewers have given a great description... More

This is a very fun place to do a meal while at Disneyland. We tried to get reservations on a Saturday (for that day) and had no luck. We were able to get in the next day though. I would suggest planning ahead and making reservations to ensure you get a table. Everything here is family style. They bring out... More

We ate hear over the New Year Holiday. The food was great! You sit outside and you can choose to have a table to yourself or share a table with other guest (depending on the size of your party). We choose a table to ourselves. They bring out buckets of ribs, sausages and chicken along with coleslaw, baked beans, corn... More

We dined here on a family trip over Christmas. You sit outside (it's California) at picnic tables with canvas-like tarps overhead. The meal consisted of BBQ ribs, chicken, cornbread, corn on the cob, cole slaw, sausage, beans, and bottomless drinks. There's a guy in a cowboy outfit playing a guitar and singing songs. Since it was Christmas time, there were... More

I really don't understand the 5 star ratings on this place. Basically, it's 39$ for a bucket of meat. If you like meat, and can eat a whole bucket, then this place is for you. My husband and I and our 2 kids aged 9 and 7, barely finished the first bucket, let alone any refills. I don't know how... More

We had a nice dinner here while visiting Disneyland. Food is served family style, all you can eat. We got chicken, ribs, sausage, beans, slaw, corn bread and all the drinks you desire. If you are big eaters then the $29/person price tag for adults is worth the price ($13/child). One possible downside is the restaurant for all intensive purposes... More

This was one of the best meals we have ever had inside Disneyland. The food was great, servers were so helpful and friendly, and the atmosphere was fun. We went for dinner. On the menu was: corn cobs, baked beans, cole slaw, corn bread and honey butter, sausage, ribs, and chicken. They will keep bringing the table more food, for... More
