The catfish is crisp and tasty. The small cf steak covers the plate. The salad bar is fresh. I don't think I've ever had a bad meal there.

I thought it was pretty good not the best I have eaten but surely good for the area. Thought it was pretty good for the price with the salad bar you can't beat that.

Ranchers isn't a bad place to eat but there's nothing special on their menu. Chicken fried steak should hand breaded and not over cooked making it tough to cut much less chew. Too many times that's has been the result when our food was served. The staff are friendly and prompt. It's a feel good place just wish more care... More

Huge salad bar, decent ribeye. Good service too. And the bill was reasonable for 5 people. They had a big dessert menu, even sugar free options but we were too full for dessert.

I ate here with several family members at their bequest. I had hoped for the best but I cannot get a steak worth a damn here. Always overdone and tough as hell. The italian place down the road serves a way better steak! Salad bar was nice and fresh if that is your bag. My cousin complained about his chicken... More

I love local businesses and this was no exception, a real american steakhouse. Very comfy, great prices, great service, awesome and delicious food. Been here last year and this year, nothing has change and i hope it doesn't. I will remember this place for years to come.

Was in Gatesville to visit my soldier down at Ft Hood and stopped here for a meal. The food was quite tasty, home-style and generous in portion! Salad bar was fresh and well maintained. The chicken-fried steak meal was large enough to feed a family of four (or one REALLY hungry soldier) and was noteworthy. The desserts were homemade and... More

We made a spontaneous lunch stop here. Instead of driving on interstates, we took the "back roads" (which are actually quite good highways) from Houston to Amarillo, hunger pangs hit, we saw ""Rancher's" and said "why not?" My catfish lunch was excellent. Fish was cooked perfectly. The country style, home style sides were a welcome change from what the national... More

We've been eating at Ranchers for years and we never get tired of the menu. We drive 30 miles just to eat the best hamburgers in a 90 mile area. Service is great and pies are sooo good!
