Based on a recommendation from T-shirt store in town, we went here to eat lunch. Food was mediocre and not very tasty. I'm sure at one time, it was THE place to go -- but needs a little cleaning, updating and improved food.

Big plate lunch spot. BBQ sandwich and ribs are good. Good steaks. I think the Ribeye sandwich is the best. Brown bag. They do serve beer.

We went by & placed our order to go. Food was good! Ribs very tender. They have their own security guard outside which is good as this isn't a good part of town. We were satisfied.

If you want great food at a reasonable price then this is the place to eat! We always enjoy our meals here! It's a quite resturant and they have a spectacular salad bar!

We love the Ranchero (The Ranch)! The food at the Ranch is always consistent, hot, and served with love! Owner Chris Card is a wonderful cook, caterer, manager and she always exudes graciousness, as do her staff! The steaks, BBQ and ribs are always good, and the raw oysters in season are fresh, briny and cold! I love the fish... More

This restaurant experience was great! Not a lot to look at from outside but inside it's a nostalgic and comfy dining experience. Service was great and variety of menu was broad. We had BBQ ribs with sides--awesome ribs-tender, juicy and very tasty. Appetizer of homemade onion rings was awesome-with lots of breading, crispy and very flavorful. Highly recommend this restaurant!!... More

The vegetable soup alone was good enough to make this a great visit. However the shrimp and pasta was also very good. The shrimp had that crisp texture like you get from Asian style preparation, although there was nothing Asian about the dish or the restaurant. The salad bar did not look great, but everything was fresh and flavorful. Child... More

My wife had a chicken fried steak and I had a London broil with purple hull peas and corn. It was good plain old home cooking. Very quiet place. We were there at 12:00 no trouble finding a table. Maybe that's not a good thing....
