I enjoyed a very high quality pulled pork BBQ dinner here. Very attractive place with excellent, attentive service. We'll be back. Thank you!

Stopped in at The Ranch House because the rental car place gave us a coupon. I had the ranch house platter and my husband had chicken and ribs. My husband thought his ribs were a bit dry without sauce. Everything else though was really, really good. It's a very pleasant atmosphere and the staff was courteous and efficient.

Off the normal tourist paths, but it does a nice job. We stayed near here and tried it twice to good reviews. It's a very nice neat clean place with a very nice modern atmosphere. BBQ is the highlight, but other items were also vey good. We'll be back and we have recommended it to our RV neighbors.

We have tried this restaurant four times for dine in and four times for take out. The food is OK, but a little over priced for what it is, which is about one and a half steps above fast food. But the staff has proven to be completely incompetent on every visit. When dining in they can't get an order... More

We've been here several times and every time the food is great. Very tasty bbq, great service and good selection of local micro brews. Will definitely keep coming back.

Way off the tourist map, but if you're in the Christos Road area, they're a popular choice. On Tuesdays only they feature smoked turkey (plates, small plates, and sandwiches) that is very tasty. I was not excited about the sides, and their BBQ sauce (served in bottles on the table) was , but not actually "hot" as advertised, but, rather,... More

The restaurant is within walking distance of the Hyatt Place Hotel, which is a few miles outside of downtown Santa Fe. However, if you want a place with a reasonably-priced menu and good food, it's worth the effort to find it. Most entrees are in the $12 - $15 range, and they have a variety of Tex-Mex offerings. You can... More

Had a very lackluster trip to this restaurant. The food was mediocre at best. The chili cheese waffle fries appetizer had clearly been microwaved. I mean, c'mon, at least try. Was expecting some really good BBQ, but was sorely disappointed. Plus, it was clearly geared toward a very elderly clientele. Jammed with really old folks. With so many fine restaurants... More
