“Soggy Meat”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

We are not sure what they do to the meat, but it is far too mushy. Smothering it in sauce defeats the purpose of enjoying good BBQ.

“Don't go early for dinner!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

Our waitperson disappeared completely while we waited for a meal correction. Food was okay, but not really great.

Beautiful building. Smoked meats are good. Little expensive, sides are not much, cole slaw with cilantro was awful

“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!
