The night before Thanksgiving, we pulled into Santa Fe, NM a little late and had little time to search for a place to eat. We found The Ranch House online and it was very close to our hotel. The waitress, Kayla, was very nice and so accommodating! Every little adjustment we asked for she just said "Yes!" The food was... More

My server, Stacy could not have been better. She works in the bar which is great when dining alone. The ribs were fantastic, but the star of the show is the mac and cheese which may be one of the best I've ever eaten. It's not easy to get good barbecue in Santa Fe, but this place does it right.

In the several times I have taken my family here lately the meat dishes were cooked to perfection. We appreciated the side dishes, too and the service is great!

The best part about the meal was Kayla's warm, friendly service. I ordered ribs, perfectly moist with lots of sauce plus hot and mild on the table. I was not brave enough for the Diablo. My wife ordered a giant hamburger and, even though challenged by our server, could not quite finish it. Son ordered pulled pork but the portions... More

Had dinner there on a Sunday evening, BBQ dominates the menu but it I'd done in a SW style. Very busy, service is very good. Plan on dinner before we leave Santa Fe

By far the best eating option located a few miles from I-25. It you are looking for a break from you journey this sit down casual BBQ joint is excellent. Located about 3 miles north of the NM14 I-25 exit the restaurant has a sit down dining area and a full service bar.

We all had the pulled pork sliders. yum yum yummy! There are many great selections to choose. The restaurant decor is a perfect mix of Western & SoWest. Great bar area. We had the best time. Our server's name was Corrita and she was great. Fun, enthusiastic, got us whatever we wanted with a smile and a joke. Plus she... More
