Quick lunch

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....

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

We visited Ranchero this evening. I chose the Ranch Ribs, and explained that this was our first BBQ tasting. My wife decided to go lite and had a shrimp vermicelli. The food was great, served with superb friendly staff who could not do enough for us. I would highly recommend Ranchero based on our experience.

My friend and I wanted to have a steak and some seafood so we grabbed our white and red and headed out to dinner. The staff is very professional and friendly. her steak and my broiled fish were spot-on thank you for a wonderful, hassle-free experience! We also were greeted by a very nice gentleman that walked us in and... More

The ribs are very meaty and perfectly cooked. It's the best choice on the menu. Charbroiled chicken was overcooked, dry, tasteless. Sides are fine but nothing outstanding. The salad line had some nice fresh fruit, something not always seen.
