Big Thunder Ranch BBQ inside Disneyland is a great place to stop and rest awhile. The BBQ ribs and dry rubbed chicken were both fantastic. The other food choices were also good. The place is a bit spendy, but I thought it was worth it for an all you can eat meal. The stage shows are annoying though.

We absolutely love coming here for lunch or dinner when we are at Disneyland. The food is delicious and atmosphere is great - We have been here once for lunch and once for dinner. For dinner you are served: ribs, chicken, sausage, cole slaw, baked beans, corn on the cobb, and corn bread. Lunch is the same minus the corn... More

Big Thunder Ranch BBQ is a somewhat unique place to eat in Disneyland. The food was good and our waitress was very friendly last time we went. We got our food in a reasonable amount of time and didn't have to wait long for "refills". Big Thunder is all-you-can-eat, so come hungry. I'm not big on ribs, but everyone else... More

We had an absolutely fantastic lunch here but I'm sure with the greater offerings at dinner, that meal is even better! We had reservations for the first seating of the day so we didn't have a long wait for a table. (This restaurant will seat smaller parties together at the same table but if you are uncomfortable with that, they... More

This is not a saucy barbecue. I loved it! Sevice was a bit slow, but the staff was extremely friendly! Ribs, chicken, baked beans. corn bread, and cole slaw are serviced. Ice cold iced tea and lemonade were our choices to drink. Wait staff are constantly refilling. Well worth the stop!

We made reservation before our trip to Disneyland so as to ensure a place for dinner. When we arrived after a long day in park, we were seated within 10 minutes. Drinks and food is free flow (except desserts). Anything runs-out just ask for more so come with an empty stomach. The food is good, we truly like the bbq... More

It's all you can eat, so I guess it's your own fault if you don't go hungry. Don't eat anything that day and you could get your money's worth. The corn bread is excellent but we tried not to eat much because you gotta save all your appetite for meat. Cole slaw was blah. Baked beans were pretty good, but... More

You've heard all the so called experts say that the meat shouldn't fall off the bone. Let me tell you this, the RIBS were amazing and the those experts are wrong. This was the best barbecue I have ever had. It was outstanding and the meat was so tender and tasteful. But wait, don't eat too much because that dessert... More
