Awesome hamburger

One of the most awesome hamburgers I've ever had! Only reason I give 4 and not 5 stars is because of a little mix up with the sides. However all the food was very high quality and the service was promptly and personal. Note, you can not make reservations. We were having dinner quite early so it... read more

This was our second visit to Bully Ranch. Both times were excellent. Tomato cheddar soup, Grilled cheese, Reuben sandwich and the chili were very tasty.

We ate in several restaurants while in Vail. This was probably our favorite because it was quality time after time. The drinks were good, as well. We ate a variety of things, including fish tacos for $1 or $2 dollars. Fish was even prepared per specification of each person. Everything was good!

Any restaurant that wanted business during the slow season in Vail usually offers daily specials that are easy on the wallet. Bully Ranch had a new special for each day of the week and all were excellent.

Great, excellent, wonderful food and drinks. No, I should say amazing food and drinks. Seriously, one of the best places in Vail. Did I mention its valet parking for anyone who enters the property. Wonderful service that seems to be rare in 2015. Highly recommended.

One of the few places open during mud season and well worth a visit regardless of season. Chicken fried chicken cooked to perfection with fresh carrots and mashed potatoes. Yummo.

Our first trip to Vail during a holiday and The Bully Ranch was the perfect place to make our Thanksgiving meal away from home special! Loved the huge assortment of traditional items and many more to please any palate. From soups and salads to beef, chicken, fish, plus veggies, breads and desserts. We got our money's worth. We will be... More

Everything is here is so good. In a cool ranch-style environment, I took a risk and ordered the mudslide. It was so tasty! The wings were some of the best I've had. Fish n chips were great; chicken pot pie was yummy with a flaky crust; I feel like you can't go wrong!

The bully ranch still never disappoints. Always have to get some mudslides, nachos, and cornbread. Then we try something new. Even the Ahi Tuna Salad was perfect!

Probably some of the best food in Vail with descent pricing. When we were there over spring break...we went twice for dinner. My 10 yr old had the chicken pot pie both times. She loves it. You will not be disappointed with the burger and beef stew. Definitely recommend.
