This restaurant is warm, friendly and very reasonably priced. A long drive from town (maybe 6 miles or so) but worth the trip. Good happy hour, excellent service and good "Texas Roadhouse" quality steaks. We are from Alabama, so although their BBQ is good, it...More

Excellent food and service are hard to find these days. We were seated right away on a Friday night and food was ordered and served in prompt fashion. Everything was great!

We went to The Ranch House for our anniversary dinner as out of town guests. The food was excellent, the service was excellent, and the atmosphere was excellent. I highly recommend this place to anyone that eats food.

Couldn't dine in so we order smoke chicken and brisket to go. Food was great, well packaged for transport and the sides were great as well. Would definitely return.

I am a big time fan of BBQ and this spot does not disappoint. Make sure you get a taste of the brisket and/or pulled pork plate. Did I mention that they have some of the best cornbread I have ever had?
