Good food just like small town cafe's. Nothing fancy just good food. Not a lot of parking and they only take cash. Locals eat here all the time.

We stopped in North Platte because it is a nice day's drive on the way to ski in Colorado. Someone suggested that we try Merricks Ranch House in "downtown" North Platte. As my title suggests, there are lots of chain restaurants to choose from in town and this is a local place. Back of the menu says they have been... More

We had a family dinner after a funeral for 34 people service was awesome, fast and food good. We have eaten here many times over years but they really stepped it up when we needed them.

This is our "go to" dinner location in North Platte. We always stop her on our trips to and from the West. It is only a few blocks from the America's Best Value hotel where we stay. Nothing fancy, just a great family operated restaurant. The Breaded Veal is excellent. Also love their Fried Chicken. Large portions with good side... More

this is a family run business good for large groups or just the two of us enjoying a Sunday dinner. Prices reasonable and great variety on menu

Traveling through North Platte last week I looked some local ma and pa joints to hit up for lunch. I'm that kind of guy. Though it was not close to the interstate, it was worth the trek going into town for. I hit the place around 2:00 p.m. and there were just a couple of older gentlemen in cowboy hats... More

Friendly staff--though our waiter seemed overworked--but an inconsistent level of food. My brother and I had the special, a brisket sandwich, that was quite good. My wife had fish and chips that were mediocre. Based on the menu, I would rate this as a family burger joint.

We were on our way home after 10 days vacationing in Wyoming. We asked at our hotel where we could get a meal that didn't cost an arm and a leg. We were directed to Merricks. It's a nice café style restaurant. The service was fairly good. Our server wasn't all that friendly, brought our meal before we could barely... More
