Best filet mignon I have ever had. Best cocktail (apple old fashioned) my dining companion had ever had. Also, the ambiance and service were top notch. A little noisy in the dining room due to a private party in the adjoining room, but usually very quiet. Visit the Doghouse Saloon for happy hour before dinner, or the beautiful views from the patio after. Tanque Verde Ranch is a special place with a lot of history that has been lovingly preserved.

The donner menu was changed to a buffet, which staff blamed on "computer issues". We were not informed of this until after we ordered drinks. The food was cold and the choices very limited. We also were not informed they were charging $35 per person, which is more than the highest priced item on their normal menu. Terrible communication and bad value for the money.

We ate lunch at Tanque Verde Guest Ranch and were disappointed. The variety of food was poor compared to previous visits. For the price of $27.00, we only had salad, potatoes, prime rib and cod. The only dessert was store bought ice cream. This establishment has gone downhill.

The selection of foods was tasteful and varied. Our favorite was the mixed veggies. Cooked and seasoned very nicely.
The entrees...the steak, chicken and pulled pork were all very good.
The line moved along and the servers were friendly and helpful. Great spot.

Always a pleasant dining experience. The menu is small, but there is something for every taste. Prices are quite reasonable for the type of establishment that it is, and more than enough food.

Another option or two would have been appreciated, even as simple as different burger options and/or steak options, and or a steak salad, etc. Nothing to expand the kitchen inventory; just another couple options with the already arranged food of the day.
I ordered the burger for $16 and it was at best a $9 quality (6oz meat, 2 strips thick cut bacon, slice of cheese, bbq sauce). Where’s the added touch at 16 bucks? Fried onions or grilled onions and or grilled mushrooms and or jalapeños and or hatch chili’s and or napales ... and 6 oz? I thought this was America, and on a literal dude ranch no less. My wife ordered the cauliflower “steak”. She really liked it all, though thought it was high priced at $16 for a slice of cauliflower with fixens.
Dessert wasn’t on the menu nor offered by staff; we found out days later it was an option.
Breakfast here is AWESOME! (Huevos Rancheros with a 3rd egg, and chorizo is OMG)
Dinner is ok.
The Saturday BBQ is a MUST.
Main thing I learned: Don’t be afraid to ask for anything you may actually want as they’re happy to oblige, but you don’t know what you don’t know.

The food was generally good because one moment it was out of the barn delicious, then others were delicious but not how I asked I prefer my meal. It was basically how would you like it and then this is what you get it. I never hated it just wish attention to detail. The rest of the experience was more of a learning experience and it was ecstatic and why everyone should be here. Amazing experience overall and awesome staff and guest

Dinner was wonderful with a choice of Mahi-Mahi and steak. The sides were tasty and the entertainment very enjoyable. Plan on a fall trip as this was beyond our expectations.

The service was great and the food was okay. I understand that this is a ranch in Tucson with horses, but my husband and I swatted and killed four flies during dinner that were bothering us. I wish they would have tried to limit the amount of flies in the dining room area better, because it would have made the experience more enjoyable.

We had dinner in the dinning on Thursday and Friday night. The meals were fantastic. Our entire table ordered the prime rib on Thursday. It was some of the best I have ever had. On Friday I ordered the mussels and my husband had the filet mignon. They were flavorful and perfectly prepared. Warning the portions are huge.

Well it was wonderful except we arrived at 9:30 am as they were closing. They were not aware that Opentable was advertising them. They said it wasn’t supposed to start until later this month.

They were extremely accommodating, let us stay and have a wonderful experience.

Will go back.

Beautiful surroundings.
