“Close the Doors”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

Seriously, this place needs to shut down and quit taking peoples money in exchange for crap. I went with a large group. I got the buffet, huge mistake. Dried, old horrible fish, lackluster vegetables, and the cake I made the mistake of choosing for dessert was hard and stale, completely inedible. Everyone's food was mediocre at best. Baked potatoes that looked like they were baked weeks before, frozen and then microwaved to order. My friend next to me struggle to cut through his hamburger steak with a knife. Just an overall horrible meal. The bar next door was good though.

“Don't waste your time or money!”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

In town on business and several locals suggested we stop in the YO and check out the lobby and the saloon. The hotel lobby is amazing and the front desk staff were very warm and friendly even though we weren't even staying there. We then went in the saloon for a drink and same thing-bartender was very nice and accommodating. We decided to stay for dinner in the restaurant and this is where it all went downhill FAST! The young girl that seated us and waited (or not) on us, seemed less than interested in having a job and clearly lacked training in the customer service industry. She did not know the menu, was missing in action most of the time (2 customers had to get up to find her to pay their bill) The sirloin steak was just awful, tough! In all fairness, my colleagues' chicken fried steak was great! This is a great western restaurant but unfortunately the staff was blaring We are the Champions by Queen and more along the same lines. There were only 5 tables of customers at prime dinner time and 3 tables were disgruntled with the atmosphere and the wait staff! I would be mortified if I were the manager of this place and these are the employees that I left in charge. Terrible! Suzy, Fort Worth, Texas

“Hotel Buffet go for it.”
Reviewed February 25, 2014

If you are staying at the YO Ranch and Convention center, The Branding Iron is worth a visti. Not a favortie of buffet's but this was very very good. Staff was attentive and the value was excellent.. Food was very good.. Needless to say you have to pick and choose.. Some things I liked and some not so, but that is one of the good things about a buffet
