After living in the area eight years and hearing great comments about the Bar-B-Que Ranch, we came for our family's weekly Friday night dinner. I think everyone really liked their dinners. Our little granddaughter finished her meal before everyone else!

We always get the bar-b-que and fries. They are so delicious. The service has always been good. It is an old business but I hope it never closes. The bar-b-que is an old recipe and it is wonderful.
