Every time we visit Disneyland we plan a meal at the Big Thunder Ranch BBQ. The lunch menu is slightly different than the dinner menu. Lunch includes chicken, ribs, coleslaw, corn break and baked beans. Dinner includes the same plus sausages and corn on the cob. The sodas are included and are continually refilled. When you run out of any... More

We had a great lunch and since the food is family style and all-you-can-eat you can't leave hungry. The service was wonderful; our server made sure we always had a full drink, refilled anything we requested, and checked back frequently. It's outside, but covered, so it was like a picnic in the shade. We were concerned it would be too... More

The title says it all! Although it was a very expensive meal (about $30 per adult), it was ALL YOU CAN EAT BBQ. And it was amazing. The sausage was great, the chicken was phenomenal, and the ribs were to die for. Drinks were included, and dessert was extra. Reservations are highly recommended. We had a 6:40pm reservation and still... More

I was unclear when I made the reservation how much our lunch would cost, but wanted a reservation and a place to sit for lunch (not knowing how busy Disneyland would be). Food was good, service too, would definitely go back (because it has the menu that my family prefers)

I was skeptic that they wouldn't be able to accommodate my gluten free needs and I was so thankful they were able to!!! Best place to eat in the park expensive YES but it being disneyland it's fine. I had everything on the menu except the cornbread that was the only let down but for me it was a great... More

Surprisingly great BBQ in disney. Great service, good food, loved the family style, clean, amazing dessert (gigantic smore is a win). Really nothing bad at all, no cons i can think of. There is a set family style menu of chicken and ribs with coleslaw and baked beans and corn bread, so if that isn't your style this is a... More

Excellent BBQ all you can eat. Great smoked ribs, chicken and sausages.. Great atmosphere with live music which unfortunately stops a bit too early. At 29$99 drinks included correctly prized as well. Make sure to book in advance.

Let me say this! The food in Disneyland is either hit or miss, this was a hit!!! I went for dinner, so the food choices are: BBQ chicken, ribs, sausage, corn on the Cobb, ranch beans, coleslaw, cornbread, and your drink. It was around $30 but totally worth it!!! The chicken was tender and flavorful! Ribs fell off the bone!!... More

We went for dinner, due to my husbands love of sausage & ribs. Good food, everything was kept full. Lots of food. I liked it, my son thought it was just ok.

Love this place, food is awesome and the wait to get a table with reservation was reasonable. Servers are always nice here, seems well managed. Rare gem at Disneyland Park where everywhere else is a zoo. Pricey but worth it!
