We were not received by a hostess, and were rudely talked to from afar as soon as we walked in. Music was turned off as we walked in. Once seated, there was neither a greeting nor conversing by our server (when with other guests, the server was quite warm and chatty). Must be fear or dislike of a different race... More

We arrived here looking for a good dinner and that's exactly what we got!! My boyfriend got a ribeye steak and I got the shrimp and it was delicious! The waitress was very friendly and checked on us frequently. We noticed we were the youngest ones there..I'm not sure if it was the night we came on but overall it... More

We went to The Rancher's on a Wednesday night; without reservations. We only waited about 10 minutes to be seated. The hostess was friendly and professional. The service was fast and our waiter was pleasant. We received a basket of garlic bread almost immediately and our drink orders came quickly. I ordered the Kobe style chopped steak; the wife got...

We went about 5 pm on a Tuesday night and there was no crowd. Complimentary garlic bread was very good and they were not stingy, but gave us a second basket with the meal. I had a chicken fried steak...very tender, no gristle, tasty and topped with cream gravy. My wife had the chicken breast with a baked potato. She... More

We tried to get a reservation for dinner here tonight, but you have to call before 5. Saturday night was probably a mistake - they were slammed. We chose to eat in the bar so we wouldn't have to wait - probably another mistake - one waitress for the bar, and there was a party of 10, plus several eating... More

My family and I ate at this restaurant while in Ruidoso and it was delicious! I ordered the trout with macaroni and mashed potatoes. The only thing I didn't find savoring was the mac and cheese, but it seems like it's just a different style of cheese. My boyfriend had a steak and my mom had the chicken fried steak... More

Great Kobe beef hamburger and seafood salad. Service was overly attentive, but we were there somewhat late for lunch. Menu was excellent and would be worth a try for lunch or dinner.

We recently ate at Rancher's and enjoyed our meal a lot. Service is pleasant and efficient in atmospheric surroundings. My wife ordered the Kobe Beef burger and I ordered the chicken fried steak. I usually don't order the steak, but the waiter recommended it and I was not disappointed. Juicy and not greasy. Both dishes came with fresh asparagus and... More
