Steak
The highest quality Texas prime beef is the main focus at The Y.O. Ranch Steakhouse but its legendary for its extensive wild game selection, and many of those same animals roam freely over our 48,000 acre ranch and namesake near Kerrville, Texas. For those in the mood to try something out of the ordinary, The Y.O. offers venison, elk, wild boar, game birds, and our signature dish, the Buffalo Filet Mignon. Most of the beef at The Y.O. is local Texas Black Angus beef and hand cut in house. We employ a method very similar to the one the ranch hands have been using for more than 125 years.

This place is awesome. Only downfall is the ridiculous hostess asking us to wear a mask to seat us at our table five steps away. Management needs to step in and stop making employees force absurd rules.

We were visiting from out of town, and decided to take some friends here for the first time. The last time we ate here was four years ago. It was as good as we remembered it, and our friends really enjoyed it as well. We even had the same waiter as we did four years ago. That is how memorable he is. Great service!

The server was terrible. Did not write down our order and steak temperatures. My $54.00 buffalo filet was almost raw (and not med) and my side was wrong. Server left the table before we cut into our steak to check the temperature, so I had to wait to flag her down. By the time the manager came by to bring the cooked buffalo filet to me, everyone at our table had finished their meal. The sides were cold for me by then. Terrible service. Food not on par for the $75.00 per person we spent.

What a gem of a restaurant in the West End District of Dallas. From the apps to desserts....everything was wonderful. They know how to cook a steak to perfection. Great wine list and cocktail menu as well. Serve was outstanding too. Be sure to check it out if you are in the area…you won’t be disappointed.

I honestly haven’t had a better experience at a restaurant. This was hands down my most memorable dinner. Stopped in while on vacation and the hospitality we received from our waiter Jorge was out of this world. He made sure we had everything we needed and gave his own personal opinions on what he thought the best dishes were. The food was out of this world and was a perfect portion. I usually don’t leave reviews for much but I had to make sure I left this one. Hands down an 11 out of 10 and I will be sure to come back the next time I’m in Dallas!

Not bad, just not great. Decent steak, but 3 out of 4 were not cooked to the proper temp. Apparently these steaks are cooked on a flat top as opposed to open flame. That’s fine for Golden Corral, but this is supposed to be an upscale steakhouse. The only thing truly upscale was the price. Even the sides were without any Wow whatsoever. Just average.
