Recent experiences at Valley Ranch Grill have been average at best. Meats have seemed bland, BBQ sauce watery, sides lukewarm, weak tea, bad coffee and no longer serving beer. Not sure what happened since our 4/21/2015 review, but disappointing lately.

A couple of us grabbed dinner here one evening. It is pretty much cafeteria style - place your order, walk through the line, get your food as it comes up, pick a table that suits you, and chow down! :-) The food (yes, the menu revolves around barbecued meat) was very good, and some of the folks in our party...

We always love to get our carry-out BBQ from Valley Ranch. Everything we ever tried has been fantastic. Recently got some carry out to avoid cooking chores for Sunday Night Football...sliced brisket, sausage and of course, their fabulous onion rings!!!

We are regulars at the Valley Ranch, and although I would not characterize it as inexpensive they consistently turn out good BBQ with good service. We especially love their ribs and smoked turkey breast. The brisket is very good, and all the sides are great. Their green beans are over the top.

Ate here twice on my last trip to Houston - was looking for a good texan BBQ/smoke house, and was not disappointed. Had the 2 meat combo plate with beef and links. Onion rings were good, though not great.

I love BBQ and have eaten at many places plus cook quite a bit of it myself. Valley ranch is good but not great. Everything is mesquite smoked which gives it a bite and they add quite a bit of pepper on top of that. I would rank them above other chains like Dickeys but not above spring creek. They... More

One of several bar-b-que restaurants within 10 miles of Tomball. Food is very good, friendly staff, clean restaurant and decent price. Last time I was there I had the Chef Salad (it's been awhile), and it was excellent.

I had a party and ordered Togo, 10 lb moist brisket and 2 lb of lean and 5 chickens with potato salad, beans, green beans, and coleslaw. Everyone raved about the BBQ and all the sides. It hard to find a BBQ place that has really good BBQ and very good sides. The brisket and chicken had a great smoke... More

Grilled chicken sandwich with cheese and bacon, no sides. Cost over $9. Take out for a young adult. Very disappointed in the weird bread it was served on. IF I ever went back, I would request a bun or learn more about their bread options. The photo is exactly as it was received. The 2 part bun is under the... More
