“Got it right with the new location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

Though its a little further then Josh's its new locaton The Ranch House is a trip well spent. The food is amazing and the building is beautiful. I again return for the second time, the first was 2 months ago and I couldnt beleive it took me so long to return. The servers are really nice and you can tell love thier job. The manager Gabriel is a very nice man who knows alot about the food and met all my special diet needs. You can tell the staff really loves him too, just by the way he helped them and was always on the floor making all happy. This is a place Santa Fe dearly needed. All franchises beware The Ranch House is here!

Josh does some really nice things with rubs and fruit hastings, making their barbecue unique and delicious.

There aren't many BBQ places in New Mexico. This one is pretty good.

“This BBQ is a Joke”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2012

Nailbanger Here Again.This place is closed and opened up under another name The Ranch House.So I will give you a review on Josh`s BBQ,this like every other place in town for real BBQ (Smoked Meat) is a joke, the side were just as bad with one exception the Cornbread is outstanding. Its the only thing on the menu worth getting.They have a similar menu at the Ranch House but I have yet to go to the new location.

“The best ribs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2012

The best ribs, great specialty sauces. The green chili cold slaw is addicting as is the corn bread
