Great place. Family owned ranch with natural food and special entertainment. It was a great evening. In the summer they have music on Thursday evening so you can combine good music with good food. I like burgers and they were exceptionally tasty.

This is a cute little place that has only outside seating. You order from a window. It is only hamburgers and salad. The burgers are grass fed and finished. Price range is $10-15 but well worth it.

James Ranch is great for lunch and looking into a self sustaining (mostly) organic farm and ranch. The food is excellent. Be prepared to wait a few minutes longer than normal, but it is worth it!
