Tasty!

If you want a good family style lunch, this is the place to eat at. After searching for places to eat for a late lunch, and being turned away from so many restaurants, we finally stopped in at Big Thunder Ranch BBQ and was glad we did!

This is a welcome diversion from the usual amusement park fare. Your meal includes all you can barbequed chicken and ribs.The lunch and dinner menu includes different sides. We recommend for a change of pace.

Spent a long day at Disneyland with family and upon the recommendation of a friend we made a dinner reservation on line for the Big Thunder Ranch BBQ. We arrived about 15 minutes early for a 7:30PM reservation and we seated after a less than 5 minute wait. Diners are seated at picnic tables covered in oil cloth and smaller... More

We made reservations in the morning for dinner. They serve an all you can eat BBQ - ribs, chicken,sausage, corn on the cob, coleslaw, cornbread, bread and drinks are included too! The chef even came out to speak with us because someone in our group has allergies. The food was wonderful - we would go back!

We eat here every time we come to Disneyland! Though it's over $20 per person, the quiet rest with plenty of good food is what our family needs to recharge for more time in Disney. Make reservations before you go so you don't have to worry about getting a seat, and you won't have to wait in line. It's a... More

We loved it here, kinda reminded us of the Hoop de doo review version in DisneyWorld. We sat outside at picnic tables... They ask if you want to share with another couple, we said no, we wanted our own table. The food was good, service was great, and entertainment was fun! We will be back.

You sit outside on wooden picnic tables. There's no menu everyone eats the same. The food wasn't very good. Yes it is all you can eat. The buckets come with chicken, bbq ribs, and sausage. The food is okay, not that great. Ordered the flourless cake. Was a little cold texture and taste was like a cold truffle chocolate. Service... More

As a family, we were looking forward to eating here until we found out that it would be impossible for my sister to sit at the table. She has severe arthritis making it nearly impossible for her to lift her legs and sit at this picnic style bench. Chairs are not available so she was not able to partake in... More
