“Very good food”
Reviewed September 6, 2012 via mobile

They have great sides, lucilles bbq has bad sides. They have great bbq, lucilles has pretty good bbq. They have the best service i have experienced. The atmosphere is vey nice and it is quieter than lucilles. The only draw back is price but lucilles is priced about the same. I would go with this place before lucilles if you have a choice. The sides at lucilles bbq really suck bad.

“Reliable American Fare”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

In the mid range restaurant category, its really hard to judge in the US. They generally roll out pretty good service, pretty good food, in a kinda good environment.

Wood Ranch fits nicely in to this - standard fare, pretty good service, ok environment.

Im not saying it was bad but its just the same old thing. Kinda reliable if you want a good meal (so I guess I shouldn't complain).

On the upside (or is it down), the portions are huge as always but the quality seems ok!

I would go back!

“Excellent, a reminder of Babe's in Palm Desert”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

A nice BBQ restaurant with great staff and food. Not quite as good as Babe's in Palm Desert, but a nice reminder of that experience. Cubano sandwich, baby backs were great, staff was excellent during a busy dinner time. Nice outdoor seating.

“Still not impressed for the 2nd time..”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

I give it another try to this place and still not impressed with their red meat dishes. I had a steak and it was overcooked. It was thin and flat..

“Great Steaks and Salads”
Reviewed July 26, 2012

The beef rib is really unique. I took folks here who are from Texas and even they were taking pictures of their big ol beef rib to send to their friends in TX (where everything else is ostensibly bigger). But all the steaks, ribs and other selections are excellent as well.
