I know that this place gets raving reviews and seems to be busy frequently, however, our experience at the Ranch House was not very good. Their initial prices are comparable to Famous Dave's BBQ, but not when you compare their portion sizes and choices. Not to mention that they add on a fee for everything. For example, with most meals you get a choice of 2 sides (which unfortunately comes in a small 2 oz. dish) however, if you want one of those sides to be fries it will cost you $2 extra, or if you want it to be corn it will be $2.50 because these are considered "special sides". Other than the fries, which were very good, the food was not very good. The baked beans had a strong molasses/vinegar taste, the ribs were over-cooked, thin, and a bit dry, and the corn bread was dry and gritty. The waiters were very friendly and attentive, but you heard them apologizing and saying the same thing to each table, "I am sorry, we can't do that", or "we can do that for an extra $$$"! This is not the hospitable BBQ joint that Famous Dave's, or Mo's (Shelton) is. They must have done a good job in marketing, because their food and attitude is not very good. I would not recommend this place to my friends or family.
