    The ambiance was very nice and fun outside with music, shade trees and lights. The food was mediocre and at $39 per person I would’ve expected much better. The steak, chicken and pulled pork were the best part ( hot off the grill and served fresh by the cooks). The sides were cold (even those that were supposed to be served hot), lacking in flavor and not refreshed regularly. The cobbler had way too much cinnamon and cloves and was almost bitter because of it. We had to request more sour cream and salad as both were out when we went to the buffet (no one was paying attention) . All in all, other than the ambience and the experience of being outside in a beautiful setting we would’ve had a better meal at home .

    Beautiful dining room. We told them in our reservation that we were celebrating a special occasion, they sat us in a separate dining area with a few other families which allowed to enjoy our time together. We got there at 9 on Sunday, which, if you opt for their buffet, you should get there a little earlier as they shut it down around 9:30? (call in case the time changes.) Otherwise, great service, BEAUTIFUL dining room, and nice to place to walk around after your meal.

    We signed up for The Cowboy Cookout only to find out that was not held on the night of our reservation. We had reservations for the restaurant instead. It was good, but not what we expected. Open Table and the ranch need to get together on what's being offered.

    If you're in the area, Tanque Verde Ranch is a fabulous dining option, whether you're a guest of the ranch or not! Opt for the tasty buffet (no, really, it's great!) or order from the menu.

    We ate here 3 days in a row for both lunch and dinner. At present, lunch offers a salad bar, while dinner is menu service only. The food is good, but just not great. There was not one dish that any of us had that made us say, “wow, this is great!”. Most dishes were bland. We found ourselves adding salt, which we normally never do. Salads were always our best bet as they were at least fresh. The desserts were excellent. The major thing to note is the poor management. The restaurant was consistently understaffed and they ran out of food several times; usually it was the special or dessert. Waiters were visibly upset by this and we watched 3 tables of diners get up and leave because service was so slow. The staff who are working are clearly over burdened and it’s hard to watch, which really took away from our dining experience. The dining hall itself is nice enough; the room is quite large and has a cafeteria feel with extremely high ceilings, but it is carpeted. This helped somewhat with the noise, but the dining hall was still moderately loud. For Covid cautious people like us, we wished that an outdoor dining option would have been offered as there is plenty of outdoor space available and the weather was quite lovely at night. Again, this speaks to poor management. While the staff were always professional and polite, overall management of this restaurant (and the ranch itself) is poor. They appear to be just “getting by”. Nothing stands out as exceptional and for the price we paid for an all inclusive dining experience, we were sadly disappointed. We likely will not be coming back as there are better run dude ranches out there.

    Walked into my reservation along with 50 children who were touching all of the food and killing the ambience. Don’t let children eat at the buffet until the end or maybe serve them so they aren’t touching everything. I wouldn’t recommend if you care about hygiene. Pack was a great server but honestly I’m a little disgusted and won’t be back.

    Tanque Verde was a disappointment. We arrived at our 7:30 reservation and were taken by golf cart to the Cowboy Cookout. It was at the end of the evening so most tables were filled with dirty dishes. Since the food had been made in advance, only the dregs were left. By the time we started eating, they were packing up and most of the guests were departing. The entire experience felt like we were crashing at the end of a wedding. I suspect that if you got there at the beginning of service it would have been more enjoyable, but the 7:30 slot was all that was available. Overall, simply not worth the cost. However, the pack of javelinas who arrived at the end of the evening were entertaining.

    We love taking out of town guests to the Cowboy Cookout. It’s a beautiful, enchanting property. The ambiance is spectacular- the music, the set up, string lights, live music, that delicious bonfire smell … I love it. The food is fresh and there are lots of options for varying taste buds. We appreciate having the staff available to pick up/drop off guests from the parking lot to the cookout. If I had to offer any suggestions, I will say there is a bit of a wait when you first enter to pay and order drinks - approximately 15-20 minutes in a line. I don’t know if the answer is to separate payments for drinks vs headcount or if having additional staff at the registers would help. But overall, it’s a great family/friend experience for all ages.

We attended the Cowboy cookout along with live music from Andy Hersey. I would highly recommend, we had a great time and is appropriate for all ages. The entire staff was amazing and very welcoming.

    Valentines dinner. We’ve read good reviews on “the ranch” so we drove from Oro Valley to check it out. Our server was very polite and cheerful. Wasn’t made aware ahead of time that dinner would be buffet. We did get to order off a short menu that was pre fixed as choose three items, salad, main, and desert and was not listed in advance. Ordered meat loaf and lamb. Meat loaf was way to heavy on bread extender. Mashed potatoes were not hot. Wouldn’t melt butter. My lamb popsicles were under cooked and tough. The highlight of the meal was perfectly prepared crème brûlée.

    Was a fabulous experience! We went for a valentines breakfast date and ordered off the menu as the buffet had typical fare. We wanted something special and handmade for us. The breakfast burrito was the star of our breakfast. It was accented with the most flavorful chorizo I’ve ever had. It was not greasy and overly spicy. It was perfect and just the right portion. The potato pancakes were light and delicate. The eggs Benedict were decent. The sauce didn’t make it outstanding. We feel it could have been better but it wasn’t a bad experience at all-just surprised it wasn’t stellar. We are going back for more and often. We’d love to try the lunch and the dinners. Really looking forward to it. We will definitely recommend that our guests make reservations- 100%
