We just loved this "all you care to eat" BBQ in Disneyland. Lots of good food and friendly staff right near Big Thunder Mountain. We made reservations online which made it less stressful. For $30 each, we got a fabulous BBQ dinner. Recommend it for families. Children up to age 9 given a discount... read more

Let me just start if by saying that my dad loves this place so we go every time. However rumor has it that it is closing to make room for a starwars land. So my dad said that we had to go one last time. And boy am I glad that it was the last time! I've never particularly been... More

This is my best friend's favorite restaurant and he recently heard it was closing so he had to go one last time. Everybody agreed that the food is not what it used to be. We go every time when we go to Disneyland and after this last visit it will not be missed. The food is only mediocre and the... More

We had the best lunch at the Big Thunder Ranch BBQ. The food is served family style and is all you can eat. Our server Tim was fabulous, he was in character the entire time and provided the best service! The food was DELISH, even the beans! (and we don't like beans haha). The live entertainment was funny and a... More

We visited during a 3 day Disneyland visit for dinner. We were looking forward to experiencing the type of food offered. Overall, the food was plentiful but quite ordinary and everything was excessively sweet. No entertainment & included drinks range did not include alcoholic beverages (a beer might have been a nice addition). No deserts included either, these cost extra... More

Happened to go in the middle of the day during 88 degree heat. If you are not lucky, you will end up at a table in the sweltering sun, only around half of the tables are shaded. Maybe better to go for late dinner. Also time your meal so you'll see a show. Food was pretty good, but service was... More

All you care to enjoy! For lunch, it includes BBQ ribs, chicken, cornbread, baked beans, coleslaw and a soda. Dinner includes all of that plus corn on the cob and smoked sausage. Along with the delicious food, the entertainment provided by a singing cowboy and cowgirl is fantastic! They offer yummy desserts separately and I've actually just ordered dessert and... More

This place is perfect for groups. Food is absolutely delicious and you don't have to really think much about what you want when you're exhausted from walking around all day. Sausage and ribs were great, cornbread was some of the best I've had. We ordered a skillet cookie and the 4 of us couldn't finish it. Try this place!

My husband and I ate at Big Thunder Ranch BBQ , It was an all you can eat BBQ, which for us was fine but a little pricey considering neither of us ate much. All you can eat by the way means refills of the slaw, beans, ribs and chicken that you are given to in buckets to share. There... More

This is our favorite place to eat at Disneyland. The lunch pricing is a great deal, and we always go for a late lunch around 3:30 so that we don't have to buy dinner + lunch throughout the day. Is all you can eat, includes chicken, ribs, beans, coleslaw and corn bread, and they have a vegetarian option of grilled... More
