Best diner food around. Really busy on Saturday and Sunday mornings. Eggs are fresh, bacon crispy and toast--just the way you like it! Try the chicken fried steak, it'll fill you up, for sure. Same people have been there for years even though the old owners sold a couple years ago. Good food, good prices.

I ate at Ranch House recently with my daughters for dinner. Seems to be a very popular place because of the crowd to get in but that gave us a chance to grab a quick drink at the bar. One of my daughters took a look at the beer list and found a craft beer that she like while I... More

Love this place. Hole in the wall joint. Great staff. It was packed out when we arrived. Delicious comfort food. We all had the chicken fried steak. It was home made hand bartered. Tasted fresh and delish!! I definitely want to try it for lunch next time we are in town.

Best breakfast experience I have ever had! From the instant we walked in the door, we felt like we were home...warmly greeted, coffee poured immediately and a yummy plate of food within minutes. The biscuits and gravy melted in my mouth. This is worth a special stop in Lubbock!!!

This is a well known local place that has a great breakfast. This is a typical old diner with great service and good comfort food. Anytime I am downtown I tend to eat here.

I've been eating here for a while now, and I have yet to have a meal that was not good, services that was bad, or prices that were to high.

Really good breakfast at a great price! Always packed, especially on weekends. Daily lunch specials are just so-so. The interior will take you right back to the 1970s.

This is the best downtown diner in Lubbock. Prices are very reasonable. Lunch specials change daily and all meet the expectations of a great West Texas meal. Personal favorites include the fried chicken, chicken fried steak, and barbeque plate.

Coming through Lubbock from a business trip we pulled off the freeway and easily found the Ranch House Diner on the corner of Texas & Buddy Holly. Located in an unlikely looking part of town that borders the legal aspects of Lubbock's city, county & regional requirements financial district, art and commercial districts, one finds a packed parking lot with...

We went here with some friends for lunch. The food is good, home-style fresh cookin'. We also liked the atmosphere - quiet! Nice break from the 90 decibel restaurants in town!
