Best in Disneyland

This is family style barbecue. It's about $24 an adult and $12 a child, but desserts are not included. Still, we felt it was the best dining deal for our family of six. All of the food is delicious and the entertainment is fun western music with Tex Tumbleweed. Definitely recommend it.

This was the favorite meal of our entire trip. The food is tasty,fresh, hot, and plentiful. We loved just sitting here and taking in the ranch area. We visited in October, so the fall décor and activities were all around us. We enjoyed the singing, and met a nice family and off duty CM at our table. Don't hesitate to... More

This little western style oasis is good eats! Set back behind Big Thunder Mountain among the shady trees and next to the little petting zoo it's the perfect lunch spot, especially on a hot day. It wasn't particularly busy the Saturday we went at 1 PM. The server led us to a picnic table with a covered wagon awning motif,... More

the food is absolutely wonderful ... we have always had lunch here and the all-you-can-eat menu is wonderful. Fresh, served-hot ribs and chicken, corn bread, beans, and good coleslaw (we aren't usually fans). We find ourselves booking a reservation here often (but be sure to make the Disney Dining reservation). Definitely worth checking out if you haven't already.

Reservations suggested and we made them way ahead and walked right in to all you can eat BBQ with live entertainment. Ribs, Sausage & Chicken Corn on the Cobb, Beans Corn Bread all you can drink. Service was excellent as was the country entertainment.

At first i was a little scetchy about trying this place. Let me say i am glad we did. The ribs fell right off the bone and the chicken was delicious and moist. Very impressed. The smoked sausage was ok and the coleslaw was surprisingly good. Will go back for sure.

Yummy and all you can eat, with great service! Food is served family style and if you run out of your fav, just ask for more. There was a cute stage show while we ate.

Thought we would have my granddaughters birthday dinner at the ranch, which would be fun and a new experience for her. Greeting staff were friendly and when asked if we would mind sharing a big table with another party, we though "why not"! We were only a party of four, so as its all you can eat, we figured the...
