Had a wonderful meal at the Ranch House. Chose the sampler plate because everything sounded so good and we could not decide! Our server, Kayla, could not have been more delightful and helpful. Menu was great and prices were extremely reasonable - especially considering the food was fabulous.

The menu has New Mexican and BBQ options to choose from which is nice. The brisket lunch plate was outstanding. I had the butternut squash purée as the side and it was really tasty. Service was great and as a first time visitor you get a free dessert-talk about a cherry on the top! I hope I get the chance... More

We ate lunch here following some outlet shopping. The restaurant was built in 2011, and provides an up-to-date setting for some very good barbecue. Both of us had brisket; my wife's in the "smaller plate", (no bun), and mine with the same brisket in a sandwich. Both were lean brisket (moist can be had on request), tender, tasty, with good...

Who would have thought that a smoked prime rib works... or how that is even possible... but it was amazing! Perfectly medium rare... juicy and flavourful. It was superb! And their pulled pork tacos... yummy! Not to mention their happy hour margaritas! It was a beautiful place. Great food and excellent service. Thank you Ranch house for such a wonderful... More

We go to Santa Fe all the time and this time I wanted to try something different so we came here. I made reservations for 5:30 PM on a Friday night and was told to pretty much be on time because they'll be busy. Sure enough there were lots of tables full and they kept on coming. We had the...

I attended during the busy holiday weekend. The Hostess was able to seat us pretty quickly and we were allowed to change seats. I'm so glad we did. We had one of the best waitress I've had in a very long time. Kayla was engaging and friendly with use throughout our stay. Seriousy, I was impressed with her from the... More

First trip here and the food was great. We had a party of 6 and got right in. The barbequed items was very good as we know our Texas barbeque. We also had great service. Everyone was very happy and filled.
