The food is quite good, small seating area inside, large fan cooled covered and uncovered seating outside. Service was efficient and excellent. 50's Country music in the backround, rather eclectic menu with each item worth investigating. Semi pricey, but you get value for the price.

Always a great meal. Not a long wait but I am an early eater so I arrive when they open. Small area in and outside for eating. Food is excellent with good portions. I always have food to take home.

We attended a wine tasting event at the Ancient Peaks winery in Santa Margarita and knew to stay for dinner at the Range. Apparently a lot of other people know about this joint because it was swamped as soon as it opened for dinner! We...More
