Wonderful home cooked meals, for the tired and hungry traveler or farm hand that needs to eat good cookin'. Great value, nice salad bar, and awesomely friendly folk to serve you. Always a treat to visit, and settle in for a great meal.

The Dude Ranch is a home style eatery. Not noted for it's atmosphere, it serves excellent homestyle meals. You will receive large portions for the price.
