My husband and I had lunch at Jackalope Ranch in Indio yesterday, and it was the best ever! We both ordered the Steak salad. Both the food and the service were absolutely perfect! We highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for great food served in a casual environment.

Nicest BBQ joint that I have ever been into. It is casual, no need to dress up. Ribs were great! Their coconut margaritas are excellent. Not too sweet. Very refreshing. We sat outside and gardens are spectacular. Loved the water garden. It is worth a walk around the entire restaurant to check out their décor.

We sat at a bar table during Happy Hour, very comfortable and there were a couple of low key singers that were pleasant to listen to. The ribs are very good, but we expected the large order to be a full rack. As it turned out, we have gotten half racks other places as large as this large rack. They... More

Some time ago I wrote a less-than-flattering review of Jackalope Ranch. The manner with which the manager at that time handled it was a class act all the way. I had said that I didn't believe I would ever go back but because of his actions I decided to give it another try. Returned in August and it was a... More

Many folks drive by the Jackalope Ranch and pass it off as some oddball novelty tourist trap in the desert. That's their loss. This place is a gem. A tremendous restaurant and bar that boats a very whimsical site. The happy hour is a bargain and the food will not disappoint. When the weather is cooler the outside bar and... More

We had a great time, the food was excellent, the entertainment (line dancing) was great, we did a tour of the restaurant, it's very large and beautiful. All of the worker were very kind, I will be back.

Third visit there; first one with friends for lunch - service was good, food hot and good, a little pricey, but the scenery was beautiful. Second visit we went alone, there was a large event taking place but they put us in a room away from it; service was quick once the entertainers for the nights' event came in to... More

We brought our toddlers here for dinner and had a great experience. They loved the country music and line dancing. The service was outstanding and the food was very good as well.
