“Malad's Best!”
Review of Dude Ranch Cafe

Dude Ranch Cafe

Reviewed 16 July 2015

Three of us go to Malad once or twice each year to visit relatives and we always include a lunch stop. This was our first time at Dude Ranch Café and certainly won't be our last. First, you would never drive by it (you have to look for it) and say, "Hey that looks like a great place to eat." But. It is. It's an iconic small town place, very clean and neat. The service is really super, efficient and friendly. The food is even better. We each had a different sandwich plus the salad bar. The sandwiches were large, tasty, well prepared. The salad bar was modest, but fresh. My Ruben is one of the best I've had in a while.

We got a tip from the server that they have a steak and shrimp special on Friday and Saturday nights that is really good. Might well be worth the drive for us.

This is definitely a place for locals. So many people recommended this place to me. Reasonably priced food. I like the chicken salad. They gave us free ice cream comes at the end of the meal.

This is a Western-themed small town diner. It was pretty full, which is always a good sign. The service was quick and friendly. We both had excellent Reuben sandwiches, and after one look at the pie rack we decided to splurge and each or us ordered the Strawberry-Rhubarb pie. Best ever, the crust was crunchy and flaky, and the filling absolutely delicious.

Very nice people, good food, large portions and free ice cream; what more can you ask for?

This place is worth the short drive off of the interstate.

Unbelievably huge menu, which really doesn't matter, because if you go to the Dude Ranch, you have to have the chicken fried steak. It fills the plate and is tender and delicious. Homemade mashed potatoes and homemade mini loaves of bread are delicious. Salad bar is pretty good -- and the homemade pies are amazing. After dinner, you will be "surprised" with a mini ice cream cone that comes with your meal; ours was white chocolate raspberry! Great place for delicious down home food and/or to take hungry teenaged boys!
