We are locals (living 28 miles south) and have probably passed this place hundreds of times getting on/off the interstate, but never stopped (always too busy?). Had breakfast there this morning, and have to say that appearances are deceiving; pleasant staff, good food and service. prices are in line with most other similar restaurants. Rustic interior and exterior. Look for the big sign that says "CAFE" if you're westbound, or the big green sign that says "Ted's Bullpen" (a former and now closed truck stop). Hopefully, you won't be disappointed.

Stopped here for breakfast. It is a medium sized place. It does a really nice breakfast and we had nice food. It is reasonably priced and we were made welcome by the staff. There are quotations on th ewalls and books for sale with some of them in it. We had a visit from te route 66 motorcycle club while there and they were very friendly. Would reccommend tis place.

I'm a local and have been going to this restaurant for over 10 years. The service used to be good, prices reasonable and the food was good. Over the past couple of years, since new ownership, the service has been lacking and the prices are rising (overly so). The quality of the food depends on who's doing the cooking. Sometimes it's good, sometimes it's not. I've seen where simple orders take 30 minutes to get. I've seen tables of four people where two got their food and the other two were still waiting for theirs 20-30 minutes. The place was busy but they only have 10-12 tables. It was a Sunday morning and my friend ordered one pancake with bacon and it took 20 minutes for them to take her order and 30 minutes for her to get it. I am really saddened that the only restaurant we have in town has gone downhill like this. If you're traveling through, do give it a chance and if you don't like your experience, please let them know. Maybe it will help them see why the locals are staying away in droves.

Not sure what happened with other reviewers, but we eat at The Ranch House fairly regularly. They have good food at an affordable price. Their service is good. Its a small family run business. Recommend as a good place west of Flagstaff to stop for a meal.

The food is always good, but the service can be better. The Fried Chicken is the best I've tasted anywhere, and the Burgers are good too. I like the French Fries.
The wait staff is inattentive-that is the draw back.
