Bully Ranch is a "don't miss" - the food is great BUT the service is even better. Someone in our group had food allergies and our server Mauricio took such great care to put together a meal that worked for him. Every request was met with a "yes - of course" We returned 2-3 times to this restaurant.

Food was average and prices above average. The special listed on their web site with $2 fish tacos with an appetizer order was... More

We stopped on our way to Denver. The Bully Ranch is kind of out of the main pedestrian traffic in Vail center. We sat outside on a Chamber of Commerce day. It was just perfect. Too bad the food did not come up to that standard. The feature burger was so so and the club sandwich was very poor. Our... More

Service was good but the food is horrible. I had a turkey wrap and honestly could have made a better meal in my own kitchen. It was so bad. The food was clearly pre-made. Not fresh at all. I would only have drinks here in the future. Skip the food!

Overall a reasonable spot for an easy casual lunch. Nothing too unusual and nothing to complain about, except wait staff should understand that sparkling wine is best not called champagne.
