Prime Rib delicious not so the Ribeye, Great Service

We went to this restaurant when we found that The Texas Club (which had been recommended) was not open......Service was excellent - the Prime Rib was excellent and cooked as ordered. The Ribeye which was recommended was undercooked and stringy. Wine from New Mexico was nice.

This is a wonderful and elegant place for dinner. Ended the vacation with a 12oz pork chop. Best pork chop I have ever had. Jill was our server and was great. Chef Jacob knocked it out of park. Thanks!

Very nice restaurant. Our waitress, Jill, was outstanding; we could not have asked for more. I had chicken fried steak, huge, lightly breaded real steak. Very very good with garlic mashed potatoes. Macaroni and cheese and teriyaki yellow fin tuna were other stand outs. It had a good wine list too. We were very happy to have found this place!

Nice little restaurant, outside looks totally different then inside looks, a bit on the small side but very nice. Hostess and wait staff were wonderful. Coconut shrimp is fantabulous. Menu has a good selection but a bit on the pricey side. Would definitely recommend visiting.

This past Saturday afternoon my family and I stumbled upon The Ranchers Steak and Seafood restaurant after a long great afternoon of skiing at the beautiful Sierra Blanca. We were looking for something fast but we decided to treat ourselves and take the time to enjoy a sit down meal before we decided to head home. We were greeted by... More

We arrived for lunch without much expectation as we just stopped out of convenience. We were pleasantly surprised. My seafood salad was excellent and hearty in terms of the seafood portions. We were so happy with the experience, Felicia, our server, set us up for reservations for that same evening so we could try the smoked prime rib. Unfortunately, when... More

My husband, myself and our 2 daughters went to Rancher's based on a recommendation from a local shop owner. I ordered the filet mignon with garlic mashed potatoes, hubby had the fettucine alfredo with chicken and our girls had homemade mac and cheese. My filet was good BUT lacked any seasoning. A little salt and pepper would have gone a... More

Food: We really enjoyed the salads. All the dressings are house-made; the caesar dressing was so yummy. The salmon was excellent, but the mac and cheese side dish was flavorless (but the leftover caesar dressing tasted pretty good mixed in). My husband had the blue cheese burger; his complaint was that the bun should have been toasted like it said... More

We were sat at a wobbly table in wobbly chairs that barely even had room to be pulled out. The waitress was rude and would not acknowledge us when she walked by. The French onion soup had a weird unidentifiable sponge-like object, almost like fat, sitting at the bottom. The waitress would not take our check so we had to... More

We came here since it seemed like a nice restaurant. The food was not bad but the waitress was pretty bad. Was not in a good mood the whole time and was very rude. Will not be coming back here.
