    While we have dined for years at The Ranch, and the food is always delicious, this time one of our favorite dishes had changed. I dream all day about smoke fried chicken when I know I'm dining at this restaurant. However, this time, it was more like plain friend chicken - no more super smokey flavor. It was good friend chicken, but not unique to this restaurant any more. And the oh so yummy hot potato salad was full of uncooked onions. I LOVE this dish and it was just not up to snuff. Hope they can get the smoke back into this unusual friend chicken entrée!

    The Ranch has become a go-to for my family. When we have out of state guests that need to experience Texas food, we take them here. Great service, lots of menu options. Catfish to prime rib, onion rings to goat cheese grits, it's all good!

    I almost hate writing this review. I know everyone is going to read it and go there and then I am going to have to wait to get a table. They deserve it though. I have never had a bad experience here and even the one time I sent something back it was like an all hands on deck process to make things perfect. The food is great and you can scale your dinner from fine dining/high end to cheap date night depending on what your in the mood for. Just don't go on Saturday because they have all bottles of wine 1/2 price and I would prefer not to have to fight with you to get my wine or my table :)

    If you're visiting the Dallas/Irving area this is a great place to go to get that Texas "feel". The menu offers a lot of variety and even some interesting local fare such as elk tacos, venison chili, and other standards like steak, fish etc. This place prides itself on its locally sourced menu and the steaks were excellent. While I'm sure all of their sides are wonderful you are really missing out if you forgo their amazing hand-cut made in house fries. They're among the best I've ever had. I can't say enough about our server, she was so sweet and helpful, which is incredibly important to me due to my long lost of food allergies. Beer and wine offerings are extensive and also focus on local products. All and all, just a great place!

    I've eaten here at least 8-10 times during my business visits to the area. I highly recommend it. The menu is extensive enough to satisfy any appetite. The food is great. Service is always top notch. On this last visit one of the waiters recommended a wonderful Texas wine. Now usually I don't care for the local wines in this part of the country - this however was an exception!

    We met friends there for a fun evening. The facility was great and the service was attentive. The margaritas were very good. Unfortunately the food did not match the rest of the operation. The highly touted filets were dry and tough. The sides were just ok. Overall we were disappointed.

    i liked the inside ambiance also and non vegetarian choices. For vegetarian, people may find it difficult as i did not find any main entry with vegetarian choice and i had to settle for 3 vegetarian side dis only. I would request the restaurant to include 1-2 vegetarian choices in main entry as well.

    I meet often at meals for business and I'm always looking for places with good ambiance, service, food and a noise level that's compatible with good conversation. I found all of those at The Ranch at Las Colinas during a lunch visit. Enough variety on the menu to appease most anyone, and the dishes were well prepared and presented. Judging by the nearly full seating I would guess that a lot of others have reached the same conclusion. I would recommend The Ranch and I'm sure I'll be back.

    While in Dallas on a business trip, we made reservations at The Ranch at Las Colinas primarily because of the location. Now - it is on my short list of favorite restaurants - anywhere. The food was memorable for all the right reasons - especially their prime rib. And, considering I am a 4th generation rancher's daughter, that says a lot about the quality of the meat they source from local ranches. The service did not disappoint either - we had no less than 4 different waiters/managers checking in on us - yet they did it in a manner that was not intrusive to our dinner experience or conversation. That balance is not easy to achieve. Overall - they get an A+.

    I have been going to Cadillac Ranch aka The Ranch for years. It has become a major health concern to eat grass fed only beef that's raised and finished. And the pork no hormones, antibiotics naturally raised. I have been under the delusion that this restaurant was all local Texas born and feed and based on information from several of the wait staff was told: no worries about any of our food all is natural and all beef grass fed and finished. So disappointing to find it is not. In all fairness the menu actually says PNB beef grained fed. The two PNB filets ARE grass fed and finished. Everything else is grain fed. This is assuming the latest info received is accurate.

    The wine list is extremely overpriced by the bottle. That could be the reason bottles were half price. Two filets at our table were not cooked to the correct temperature and sent back. They looked terrible when they were brought back to the table. One entre came with the wrong side dish. The shrimp on the dinner special were overcooked. Not impressed at all...

    We had the smoked fried chicken which was absolutely unbelievable. It actually had a smoke flavor and the meat was so moist , it melted in your mouth. The pork chops were huge and flavorful. Their vegetables were all fresh and so uniquely flavored and cooked, they should write a cookbook. Mandy was our server and truly the best. We couldn't be more pleased. Looking forward to coming back again very soon!

    Menu selection is fairly unique and locally sourced. Everything I ate was very good and struck me as very fresh. Ambience could be a little better particularly the noise level but I was sitting near a large party that probably contributed to that. Wait staff is very friendly and professional. They do try and up-sell and recommend dishes.

    While the food and service were great (best Prime Rib I've had in a long time) - I specifically requested a table in an area with less noise to conduct business - The entire resaurant was overly loud to the point you almost had to shout across the table. Needless to say our discussions were curtailed because of the lack of an environment where business could be conducted. I would not consider this a place to conduct business or for a romantic evening.
