Went for lunch. Prices were reasonable, food was unremarkable. Service was friendly, but yoga pants/leggings should be worn with a longer shirt. Restroom had been recently cleaned which was nice.

I've given The Ranch two tries and I wanted very much to like it, especially since its locally owned and family based. However, the food has been bland, greasy, and overpriced for what it is. The servers are attentive and friendly, but the food is...More
