This place has ok food but nothing near $40 per person quality or service! We made a reservation, then waited 30 minutes after to be seated. There was no entertainment. The food was just so-so, the side-dishes were not great. I would pay about $15/person to eat here.

Can't rave enough about this place. Why haven't I eaten here sooner? This is the best quality of food I've had in Disneyland. The price may seem steep, but I promise it's worth every dollar. We were a party of 4 adults, 2 children. We spent $120 including the tip for lunch. We had all you can eat ribs, baked... More

Tim was our server and he was just so lovely. We could have stayed to chat with him. Lunch was great, ribs were really Good and the chicken was moist and lovely. Great beans and cornbread! Loved the live music the guy singing engaged so well with the kids. Highly recommend.

All you can eat BBQ. The food is decent, not the greatest BBQ, but decent especially for a theme park restaurant. Our family of 3 sat a picnic table with another couple which was fine since you only share food with your family and not everyone at the table. During our dinner there was a man playing a guitar and... More

Lunch here is the best. The upchage for the dinner is not worth it to me, because the added items are not to my liking. The price is pretty reasonable for a Disney sit-down restaurant especially since it is all you can eat. If you are into sweets, I'd recommend coming on a separate occasion for dessert only.

We love having lunch/dinner here because it's a nice shaded area with delicious BBQ, sides, and drinks. There's plenty of seating and a nice breakaway from all of the crowds.

The Big Thunder Ranch has gone through so many changes over the years. Now they are an all you can eat BBQ. they bring so much food, it's almost overwhelming. The positive is they let you get refills on what you liked the most. Questionable why they have sweet and sour cole slaw in a BBQ place, but other than... More

We booked a reservation for this restaurant based on it's reviews and it was truly a fantastic treat!! All you can eat, the most delicious BBQ food, and above all, simple. The service was great, and this was one of the best meals we had in the park. We love BBQ'd food, so this was a treat. Love the western... More
