Fathers Day Delight
Went here for the Fathers Day brunch, and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Corey is always a fantastic server: very attentive, friendly, fun! Food was all over the restaurant and everything was delicious, from the flatbreads to the skirt steak to the smores!

Another great meal at the Ranch
I've been to the Ranch at Las Colinas many times and they have yet to disappoint in food quality or service. I love their 1/2 price bottle of wine on a Saturday night since it let's you enjoy the wine knowing you are only paying the retail price for a great wine instead of the 100% or more markup on the bottle.

We went to celebrate 2 birthday's on our team. Seating was comforatable for 6, food was very good and wait staff was very attentive. We all enjoyed our visit.

Always a favorite
Food and service were excellent. Guests from out of town were pleased.

Great food, great concept
I have eaten here twice and been very pleased both times with the food. I love the concept of farm to fork, and wish it was standard everywhere. I did feel like the service was faking it, both times, as in they worked too hard to get upsales and then disappeared for long stretches. I also wish the menu was a little more focused on bringing out the best in the ingredients; it falls back on comfort food too much.

We dine at the Ranch regularly for lunch its always good. We have never been disappointed with a menu selection. The burger of the day on this visit was great!!
Highly recommended for Lunch

Great Lunch Spot
The days choices were Chicken Fried Steak, Daily Special (Texas BLT), Bandera Burger, and Catfish Tacos. All were excellent. Service was average.

Special Occasion Restaurant
We took some friends here to celebrate their engagement. It was a great restaurant, with great ambiance. We would definitely go back to celebrate more special occasions.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Over all, a great experience.
We sat on the patio (our choice). Great view, but very noisey inside and with no shutters or blinds on the windows, the sun
coming in was brutal. There should be a way to block the sun for the people that are sitting where they are getting the full sun
while eating. Next time, we will make reservations and sit inside the restaurant.

Bone-In 33oz Steak
We went on a Saturday night. So we automatically got a 300 bottle of wine for 150 which was a nice surprise. We all had meat. Bone-in Ribeye, Prime Rib and the big tomahawk. The tomahawk even though I couldn't finish it by myself was more than worth the 95.00. It was one of the best steaks I have had in a while. That includes vs. Bobs and Nick & Sams.
I will be frequenting this place, but will reserve my visits to Saturday nights so I can get the 1/2 price bottles of wine. No exceptions all bottles are 1/2 off.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Service is getting better
Much better service, than the last time I came here. Let's hope this is a continuing trend. Food was good, as always. I had the venison chili, which was excellent, and I would highly recommend it!
7/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Outstanding place for our meeting
We hosted our quarterly meeting and The Ranch was more than accommodating. We had a last minute shift in the size of our group and they were able to make the changes without any delay. Fantastic food, better service, great spot!

Upscale Texas Classics
The food here is excellent. The drinks (and drink specials) are great. The service was terrific. We started with the onion rings. DELISH! Moving from there the food continued to be great. Highly recommended.

Great Steak/Fine Wine
This place is great especially on a Saturday night. 1/2 price wine bottles (any bottle). Steaks are as good as the highest end places in town.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Awesome meal but kind of pricy
Meal was excellent along with the service. Steak was cooked to perfection and I am very picky!! I love how all ingredients are from Texas!! It shows Texans taking care of Texans.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food. My future boss
Great food. My future boss really impressed. Noise level a bit high so conversation was a bit of challenge. Service good. I will be back.
8/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
I went here for restaurant week and had never been here before. The food was delicious and the portions are huge. The service was great too. The manager even came over to ask how everything was. My only complaint is I said no cheese on my salad and it had cheese.
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fantastic for Business
We've been to The Ranch on multiple occassions for business dinners with clients and vendors, and have found that the setting and food has been perfect. Pricing is reasonable, and the food has always been top notch. I recommend this to anyone looking to impress a client!
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
THE RANCH IS MY FAV!!!
The Ranch is my very favorite restaurant in Dallas - the food is awesome, healthy and well prepared; the service is unmatched! Great place for any occasion and I enjoy introducing others to this great place.

Ranch at Las Colinas scores again
As a relative frequent diner at The Ranch, I've yet to be disappointed with any aspect of this fine establishment. Service has always been excellent with Corey being a great example of the superb wait staff. The food has always been superb and I've yet to have a dish that wasn't up to my expectations. And as always, the 1/2 price bottle of wine on a Saturday night is such a phenomenal draw.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Ranch is one of my all time favorites and I always have a great experience.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were originally seated
We were originally seated in one of the dining rooms and it was so very loud one could not converse with those at their table. We were quickly moved to an area primarily used for private parties. The sun was blindingly bright and the waiter strung up a dark cloth to block the glaring sun. Food was very good and well seasoned. Two of us enjoyed the redfish which was a huge serving and very flavorful. The other 2 members of our party had the meatloaf. It was also delicious and a large portion.

Our Guests Were Delighted!
Had friends visiting from out of town. They were delighted by the entire Ranch experience! A great place for our entire family!
9/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food and better service
Had a business dinner here for 7 people. Have had lunch many times before. I like that the reataurant has locally Texas sourced comfort food. Our meal is definitely above average and the service was great. My only issue is the restaurant is noisier than most. I requested a round table so everyone could talk easily, which was accomidated but it was in the middle of the restaurant which the noise level was high. They do have side rooms where I assume noise level is better. I do recommend this restaurant for the good food and better service.

Down home Texas
Lunch menu satisfied everyone. Bandera Burger is awesome
9/5/2013 5:00:00 PM
The food here is always good.
The food here is always good. They are very busy during the week, so on Saturday nights their wines are half price, which is a great deal. They have live music on the patio, which will be better when it cools off a little. Our waiter, Brandon was great as was Ben who helped us choose our wine. All in all a great place - good atmosphere and great food!
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were in Dallas for a convention, and I suggested The Ranch to my group since I had dined there before. It was very busy for a Tuesday night, so we were seated 10-15 minutes after we arrived for our reservation time. Service was a little slow at the beginning. It took longer to get drinks than usual and then our appetizer was served to the wrong table. The manager came over and apologized and comped the appetizer when it finally arrived. Our main courses were served without too much of a delay, and everyone in our group really enjoyed the food. Two of us ordered the small portion offered, and were very satisfied with the amount of food. Good time had by all.
9/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was good, service very
Food was good, service very good, but it is just too loud. Pleased to see that it was very busy on a Wednesday evening, but still too noisy for visiting with friends.
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
special occasion bonanza
The food was great. The server(corey) was outstanding! Definitely would return.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Get Comfortable at The Ranch
Great comfort food with Texas cuisine at its best. There is something for everyone. Ribs, steaks, and smoked chicken stood out. Order the onion rings as an appetizer or a side and you'll be happy. Service was excellent. Wine list has plenty to choose from at all price points.
10/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
After the ranch
Took my lady to the ranch for her birthday. We enjoyeded the experience of knowing all our ingredients came from somewhere in Texas but the menu was very limited. I got the baby back ribs and she got the chicken fried steak. The ribs were delicious but she complained about the weird taste of her mashed potatoes
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Solid Texas comfort food
As a diner, I approach any restaurant located in a freeway shopping center with a certain amount of skepticism, but The Ranch far exceeded my expectations. It's a really excellent spot for Texas classic comfort food like chicken fried steak, meatloaf and more. Despite its size, the restaurant was never overly noisy, and the decor works. Don't miss the gigantic, crispy, slightly spicy onion rings. Even the smaller size of the crispy, tender, well-seasoned chicken fried steak satisfied my appetite. It came with grilled okra that had a firm texture with none of the dreaded sliminess. I'm not in Dallas often but would definitely recommend it to anyone who's in the area and looking for that style of cuisine.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
This place is excellent. The service is off the chart. The specials are always great and the venison chili is the best I have ever had.
10/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great selection of American rustic cuisine with authentic local flavors and ingredients! Larger groups could be better situated if put in separate larger rooms so they do not interfere with the casual diner in the main areas.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love the Ranch!
We have dined at The Ranch many times and its always really good. This Saturday we took out of town company and they loved it. My husband especially loves the half priced wine on Saturday! Such an awesome deal! For appetizers we had onion rings-to die for-, tacos-yummy-and the crab dip-delicious! One of our long time favorites is the chicken fried steak, oh so good. All their steaks are good. We really enjoy the Tomahawk bone-in ribeye for two, usually three of us share. The desserts are good too. We were too full to have any this trip. You can dress casual, dressy casual, or dressy, you will see everything. I definitely recommend The Ranch!
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great menu choices and service is friendly. A texas experience. Yummy!
10/13/2013 5:00:00 PM
Started a girls night out here food was great service was a lil slow but we were there for dinner rush and were not in any hurry.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for visitors
We wanted to have a unique restaurant w/class & excellent food to greet visitors to Texas.
The food was terrific, service excellent & met our expectations. The manager was so helpful!!

The Ranch: Real Food, Well Execute
The Ranch at Las Colinas is an honest and spectacular collision between high-quality, mostly locally and Texas-sourced ingredients and creative comfort cuisine. I've always had great food and service here. From game, including Elk and Quail, to Fish, it's all good.
Appetizers, like really high-quality queso, pork belly carnitas, a huge conical display of outstanding onion rings, are outstanding.
Entrees are from grilled chicken Cobb Salad, Venison Chili, Burgers, Redfish, Grilled Chipotle Meatloaf, Chicken Fried Steak...and on. No gimmicks here, simply really thoughtful, big, flavorful "Texas" cuisine in the tradition of what the late, great Matt Martinez showed at 'No Place' in Lakewood. Good to great food and nice service.
10/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Lunch Place
Great menu and the meal is always satisfying. Give it try wide choice of menu items
10/29/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great Showcase for Great Texas Food
The Ranch does a very nice job of presenting Texas-sourced food, creatively combining ingredients and seasonings. For dinner, our friends enjoyed the catfish fillets while we savored the chicken fried steak - both entrees presented with ample servings. The highlight of the meal though was the sticky toffee cake which was almost melt-in-your-mouth moist.
The waiter was attentive and helpful, assisting us in selecting some new beers to sample and making certain our meals were to our liking.
The one negative was the lighting in the dining area which was so dimmed that we all had a challenging time reading the menu. Overall, however, we enjoyed our evening and will certainly visit The Ranch again.

EAT THE PORK CHOP!!!!
We found this restaurant on Open Table, having never been there before. Was surprised it was in a strip mall type location. When went on a Saturday night as an anniversary celebration, it was rather busy and a little noisy, but not bothersome. My husband got the pork chop and I the chicken fried steak. The pork chop was out of this world....never had better!!!! Chicken fried steak was good, but that chop!! Our server, Brandon, was extraordinary! When he found out it was our anniversary, he complemented us with a giant dessert.

Night at The Ranch
Second visit to the Ranch. Food was excellent just as before. We were celebrating a birthday. Thankfully no cheesy song, just a free dessert.

Today's review is based on
Today's review is based on the performance and attentiveness of our waiter. He was so preoccupied with the table behind us that his other tables suffered in my opinion. We had to ask for tea refills when we noticed the table behind us never asked. The food was wonderful and was what we've been accustomed to from this establishment. Our waiter was the downfall.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
So good we came back the next night
Was in town for a conference. We all enjoyed the bone in ribeye so much we came back for more!!!
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Always hits the mark
We had family in town and wanted to impress. The food was just perfect and delicious, the serves was friendly, fast and warm. At the end of the night, everyone was happy, we would recommend this restaurant to anybody anytime.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
The Ranch - my choice for birthday!
LOVE LOVE this restaurant. The food is excellent. The service cannot be beat. Every single waiter and waitress are excellent. We eat at this restaurant at least 2-3 times a month. My claim to fame? The day I went to the Ranch THREE TIMES!!!! Lunch with a co-worker, happy hour with a different co-worker, then dinner with my daughter. I ordered something different each time. I never get tired of this place!

Birthday at The Ranch!
Fun appetizers & drinks. We were seated promptly and had a great time. Only negative -- a bit pricey for overall value.
