Great Nachos and HUGE portions for food

We ate here at 5pm on a Tuesday and got great service and delicious food. We had the nachos which were really good! We also ordered the ribs, fish tacos, cobb salad, and steak. Everything turned out very good and in huge portions. Because we were headed back to the park we couldn't take any of our... read more

Whilst visiting LA we came here twice , once for drinks and for food and we couldn't fault it. It has a great fun atmosphere playing rock and indie music and the food is reasonably priced and very tasty!

After an entire day at universal, we were starving! Had a group of ten.. A little scared they wouldn't be able to fit us in, but we only waited maybe ten minutes. Big selection on the menu and portions were huge. They don't have a large selection of gluten free, which was a little disappointing.. But everyone loved the food... More

Let me start by saying we ate here twice. The food was really good, so we came back even though they have some problems to iron out! The cook loves his job, but management needs to step up! The wait staff and hostesses are struggling, and for the love of food - get a real working dishwasher! The place is... More

Our food was really good to hear. Their appetizer sampler makes a great meal for two. Was fun to watch the bull riders In the middle of the restaurant. The waiter found out it was my birthday and they brought a free dessert of smoore's.

The food was amazing and the table service was outstanding but the ambiance was missing. We waited 20 minutes to be escorted to our table, which was located in an empty cavernous well-appointed restaurant out-fitted with many TVs, all displaying a fuzzy reception. I asked our guide where everyone was and she gave some lame response, suggesting we might prefer... More

My family of 3 enjoyed dinner at saddle ranch after a day of shopping at the outlets. We had the monster platter everything on it was so good. Great atmosphere and service and my son loved the mechanical bull and the candy floss

Lovely welcome here and brilliant american sized food! Nine year old loved the place, really atmospheric and enjoyable. As always the waitress made us feel as if we were the only ones there and was so nice to my grand daughte. Very good location too.

We stopped into the Saddle Ranch for drinks and really enjoyed ourselves. The Bartenders work very hard and do a great job serving. Clean, great atmosphere, will be back again!
