My husband loves the cookbook and is a Tom Perini fan! He was searching the internet and learned the ranch has cabins for rent, so he planned a long weekend for our anniversary. He made reservations at the restaurant for two nights! There's no paved parking, so if it has rained, it might be a little muddy. Rustic is an understatement. Not a single table decorations, tablecloth, uneven table tops and chairs that may or may not match. It was a cold weekend, so the huge fireplaces were welcome and kept the place comfortable. I can't say enough nice things about the staff. Reservations are a must, so when we got there, they knew we were staying at the Guest House. We inquired about some Christmas shopping, but didn't want the typical mall stores. We were outfitted with a list of places to visit, complete with people to talk to when we got there. Now to the food . . . you know how something gets hyped so big that it just can't possibly match up? It does here. Homemade ranch dressing and sour dough rolls start the evening. I love baby back ribs, so ordered the appetizer with a side of cowboy potatoes. the meat pulled off the bone but was not dry and wasn't smothered in some foul tasting bar-b-que sauce. My husband had the filet and was as equally impressed. The next night I had the filet. I like mine medium well. Pink in the middle. Not red, just pink. Perfect. Absolutely perfect. The second night there, the staff treated us like family. Don't miss the green chili hominy. We finished with chocolate sheet cake and "magic coffee". Not cheap, but not overly pricey, either. I was pleased and impressed. This one lived up to the hype.
