The restaurant is the first one you pass as you arrive at Universal studios Hollywood . Its really designed as an outside eating place with a cowboy theme , ride on bulls lots of wood etc. The challenge in winter is keeping the place warm , they have heaters in the ceiling and they close in the many open doors...

This place was recommended to us by family who had been. They warned us on the size of the meals so we were prepared to order small. Food is decent for this type of venue. It's the equivalent to a pub meal in Oz, just bigger !! We had the buffalo wings which were delicious and shared a plate of... More

This review is the companion to my review of Universal CityWalk as a whole. CityWalk is a tourist trap and an expensive place to visit, but it is a major entertainment destination for a lot of people from across the country. That is why I find it unbelievable that the cell phone coverage is sooooo poor here. I stopped here... More

Wine and drinks in plastic cups. $8 for small fries. Only nacho was worth it. Came after Xmas work party and they made us order at bat even though we had 10 + people with us. Service not great.

We stopped in for Cocktails after a day at Universal. The staff are great and the venue fun. The girl behind the bar, Tracey, was a great help and lovely! We didn't ride the bull but saw others have a go!

I visited the Saddle Ranch a few weeks ago, we arrived in Los Angeles a few days ahead of schedule for a cruise and spent some time sightseeing. A local recommended we check out this place and I am glad we listened. It was a very pleasant night in Los Angeles and this restaurant offers outdoor and indoor dining, with... More

We came here with my family of 6 (all adults) for Sunday morning breakfast. Next time, we'll look elsewhere. The service was so bad it was almost funny. We waited for about 20 minutes (no big deal because we didn't have reservations) but when we were seated we were put at a table that wobbled so bad my juice spilled... More

Gross, fake food. Ordered an appetizer, took 50 minutes to come out. Less than two minutes later, our meal came out. Waitress then tells us she is taking her '30 min break' and that a new waiter would help us. When I told him we didnt have a chance to even eat the appetizer, his exact words were 'ohhhh mannnnn,...

This restaurant was recommended as the "place to eat" at Universal CityWalk. Needless to say, we were incredibly disappointed...I was traveling with a group of 6 during the dinner hour. The food was hit and miss. Among our group, we had the baby back ribs, steak, garlic shrimp, buffalo chicken sandwich, chips/salsa/guacamole, chili, regular fries, sweet potato fries, and edamame....
