We usually go here once a week for lunch. I usually have the Ranch House Salad w/Grilled Chicken, but my husband's favorite is the Meatloaf. Very casual atmosphere. Several of our friends say Cartwright's has the best hamburgers they have ever eaten!

Cartwright's Ranch House opened in 2011, but began as a dream many years ago. Located in Denton, TX they serve home-style foods for breakfast, lunch and dinner. All made from scratch. Famous for their chicken-fried AWESOMENESS!
