First time eating here while visiting my daughter. Everyone in my group had a different entrée and each was excellent. Come here hungry!. The food is wonderful and the portions are generous. I would normally leave some on my plate; but I just couldn't. BBQ pulled pork, dinner roll, sweet potato fries, baked beans...... sweet tea was even done right... More

This is a very cute western themed bbq place with really good food! My whole family loved their meals and the sweet tea served in the cowboy boot glass was fun and very tasty. Great cornbread and combo meals. Service was friendly and prompt. I would highly recommend.

Fun atmosphere and decent food. Excellent servers. Nicely decorated too. Fitting for a cowboy town. We were pleasantly surprised with it overall. We will definitely return!

I am not a BBQ expert so I can't say how Rodeo City stacks up with "real" BBQ. That said, the beef ribs I had the the half chicken that wife did were excellent. As were the sweet potato fries. Service was prompt and attentive. Have eaten at a number of restaurants in Ellensburg and this is the one I... More

Fun atmosphere and good food to boot! Had a sampler platter and the ribs were good. Enjoyed the beans as well. Service was prompt and everything we ordered came out great.

It was our first visit to the restaurant in a year and just happened to be an all you can eat night. I customarily ordered a steak, and my wife ordered the all you can eat ribs. I was not too flattered with the quality of my steak or the way it was cooked. I asked for medium rare and... More

very tasty food. Worth the drive! I really enjoyed the pulled pork. The tri tip was not very flavorful on its oen, but was great with the sauce.

Yes, they serve drinks in a boot, a glass that is in the shape of a cowboy boot. Real cute. The food was delicious, also. We had the beef bar-b-q sandwiches. They carry the local beer, 509 which is nicknamed for the phone area code. The restaurant is on Main Street and has a wood railing around the outside for... More

Really good BBQ sandwiches, decor is of course Western with mostly pictures of the Ellensburg rodeo. Service was good and the menu has plenty to choose from especially if you don't want BBQ. I would say the prices are very reasonable and it was just a good place to go. It is a little further down the path in Ellensburg,... More
