This restaurant was only minutes from our hotel and had gotten great reviews. We were not disappointed. We were seated immediately, our server, Bailey, was knowledgable and friendly and easily talked me into the drink special of the evening, a cucumber margarita with a chili/lime salt rim. The food was tasty, reasonably priced and we got a free dessert for... More

As soon as we stepped inside the aroma was fantastic! We were promptly seated and service was great throughout our meal with attentive drink refills. We both had the ribs. Wonderful with a nice subtle smoke flavor. The corn bread with green chili is great as is the butternut squash. Great food, good prices and good service. You can't go... More

What a fabulous dinner! The beef brisket was my favorite while my husband loved their smoked turkey. Service was the best. Darrin was very attentive. Great price.

After reading the TripAdvisor reviews, we decided to dine here. We've been RVing for 4-1/2 wks in NV, AZ & NM. Up to now our favorite restaurant was La Posta in Las Cruces. However The Ranch House is now our #1 place during our trip. Service (Darrin), Happy Hours menu & prices, pineapple Margaritas, BBQ turkey, pork & beef brisket... More

I'm happy we did not go to Outback next door. Being from Texas, I was surprised to find a BBQ place with such quality grill. We came for a early dinner so it was not busy. the service was good, the food was good, even the price was good (not too much). Highly recommended if you are craving for meeting... More

When we first got to Santa Fe I told the family, no chain restaurants, only local. First night's place was terrible and so I was afraid to try again. So glad we did. The waitress Bailey was wonderful. Let us know of things to see in town with our 8 year old. The food was excellent. If it hadn't been... More

The bad news is that The Ranch House is located at the far end of Cerrillos Road, not very convenient to downtown Santa Fe. The good news is that the food is excellent and the surroundings are very attractive and the trade-off is that the prices are well below downtown prices. The Cobb salad is large and very good with...

We had lunch here. My wife had an excellent Cobb Salad. I had an Apple and Goat Cheese salad which also was excellent. Our son had a huge meal of ribs and chicken, which he said was wonderful. Service was good and the restsurant is very attractive. The apple crisp dessert was outstanding.

The Ranch always has great food. Friday night is Prime Rib night. The restaurant has gluten free options and is familiar with the requirements for gluten free dining.
