“Blazin' M Ranch was a highlight!!”

This was one of the highlights of our USA holiday. Kids loved it, they organised a birthday cake for our son and, now back home in Australia, the kids are still talking about it and singing songs from the night. The magic flip flop hat is a favourite souvenir.

“A Blazin' good time!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013

I arranged a group trip to the Blazin' M Ranch recently and must admit, I thought it would be hokey and not really all that fun, BUT .. I was more than pleasantly surprised with what a great place the Blazin' M turned out to be! We arrived about an hour and half before the dinner bell, check-in was a breeze and there was plenty of things to do in their western town to keep us all busy until the bell rang. One couple that was with us has been to cowboy shows all around the country (since they manage a dude ranch in AZ.) and they were also impressed. We loved the wood carving museum pieces and we all felt that the prices in the gift shops as well as at the saloon were very reasonable. Having retired from a foodservice background, I was blown away by the efficiently run dinner service. We were the second to last table to go through the line but it took under 10 or 15 minutes to get us up from our table with plates in hand. The quality of food was excellent and the portions were huge, each person got enough to feed two people. The only thing better than the food was the entertainment. They were great! Everyone in my group were entertained and had a wonderful time.

“Fun for everyone ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013 via mobile

We are Arizona natives celebrating our wedding anniversary with another couple celebrating a birthday. Honestly, we only came because we wanted something to do after the government shutdown of the National parks left us with time on our hands. We are glad we did! This is a great place for everyone. Come hungry, leave happy. The ranch style food is excellent and second helpings are abundant. There are attractions for everyone. The show is absolutely top notch talent. It is well though out and run by a family and staff that are truly special. The gift shops are varied and reasonably priced. Don't miss the Ghost Rider. Whether you are a young couple, large family or a single tourist, there is something for everyone and they will make you feel at home.

“A Fun Evening”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2013 via mobile

Western hospitality from the moment we arrived to the end of the show. Good food served quickly, food was warm and delicious, no detail was missed. The show was entertaining by a very talented crew. A wonderful way to spend an evening in a Western setting.

The only critique I have - the picnic benches without back support gets a little uncomfortable. Some tables do have a few chairs so if you have back problems request a table with chairs when making reservations. Arrive in time and "stake" out your chair.

Difficult to find but well worth the effort. Cottonwood is a delightful small town and the ranch is a fun place to visit. Their carving museum is fantastic and the food was plentiful and wonderful. The singers for great and brought back great memories.
