We read about this new family owned restaurant in the local community paper and decided to give it a try. We’re glad we did because it was great and we have a new favorite bbq place. The meat was delicious, the portions are large and the price was very good. I went with the burnt ends and my husband had the Thursday night special - a delicious Philly sandwich (see pictures). The live music was enjoyable, not too loud. I’m delighted to have this new restaurant in our community and look forward to taking our sons there for BBQ.

Waitress didn’t know what she was doing. Never checked on us after delivering food. Brisket and pulled pork were ok, sides were good. Didn’t come for the sides. Ribs were dried and burnt. Not much options in sauce. Poor review because manager said he knew the product ribs weren’t good. . . So why would you serve it IMHO? Definitely not a good first impression.

We visited the Ranch during Restaurant Week. I'm always looking for a new BBQ joint and this place certainly fit the bill.

They are a new establishment and offered a great deal for this program. I had the full rack of ribs with a burnt ends appetizer, a salad, and desert. Our server was great and the Owner/Manager stopped by several times to make sure we were being taken care of. Many places offer good values during restaurant week and it seems value is offered every day at the Smokehouse.

I took a look at the regular menu and the selection and prices look good. They offer selections you don't see in most BBQ places. Can't wait to come back and try the shrimp and oyster PoBoys, they sound plain yummy! Couple that with a full bar and you may never want to leave. The Ranch Smokehouse also sells meats by the pound in true smokehouse tradition, a great option for those times when you don't want to do "sit-down".

I live on the north side of town but will be returning to this establishment. If you go after dark, don't let the unlit street lights scare you away (get on the stick and get this fixed Shay Properties!!), it's well lit, warm, and inviting on the inside.

The Ranch Smokehouse in Highlands Ranch is very good. Very tasty BBQ sauces and tender chicken, brisket, pulled pork, and turkey. Portions were quite adequate. We have not tried the baby back ribs or the onion rings, but they looked great. Already the place is packed on Fridays and Saturdays. We would recommend trying it and see what you think. We have gone back twice now and both times were very good. Reasonable prices.

Was warmly greeted by a guy who wanted to literally trade his old polo for my "Blue Lives Matter" (police) t-shirt -- kinda strange. Our server seemed to have a problem with that same shirt and the fact that we prayed over our meal (?). Owner, a very nice fellow from Boston, came over and was great. That said, we all ended up with some stomach upsets after our meal. We ordered the burnt ends but they were very fatty and completely covered in a thick BBQ sauce (good burnt ends will stand on their own -- and bbq sauce can be added). The clam chowder was delicious but the broth too thin. I never got the sides I ordered but something else altogether. This place has potential but they are going to need to make some changes.
