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.

Absolutely perfect for our early anniversary weekend getaway! I was very sad that we forgot our leftovers in the hotel!

Our steaks were overcooked. Ordered medium rare and rec'vd medium. For a steak house, charging $40, the steak should be perfect.

It seemed that the quality of the salads from previous visits, has also gone down.

Will not be going back.. time to find another steak house.

Just ok. Was told to come here because it was different than your everyday steakhouse, which it was. Just didn’t do it for me. Server was nice but didn’t blow me away.

Went on a Sunday and it was very quiet downtown found this looking for steak my wife had the filet and was very tender. I had the mixed wild game plate and it was very good especially the quail. Would recommend this place for sure.

Small joint. Bartender wasn’t sure how to make certain drinks, but they were very strong so no complaints. Service was great. Quail medallions were excellent. Filet mignon was seasoned SO well, but not the filet kebabs. The kebabs were good, but lacked that flavor. Green beans were worthy of mentioning—super good. Rice, too. The Gouda Mac and cheese was not good at all. It was like macaroni with melted cheddar on top. Filled up, so didn’t get a chance for dessert. But overall, great experience!

The food was excellent. Prices a little high especially the sides which you have to purchase separately.

Thursday evening and most tables are full however the staff was very attentive and very timely for all our courses. The food is outstanding, the steaks cooked exactly as we had ordered. Managment and staff went out of their way to make certain our birthday occasion was perfect

The food was amazing! Two of our guest has the trio with Buffalo, Veal & Quail and they both raved over it. If ever in Dallas again, we will revisit.

A very nice experience. This was our 40th wedding anniversary celebration so we were looking for a special night out which the Y. O. provided. I had the bison filet and it was very good. My wife had the small filet which was flavorful but under cooked, she asked for medium well and got rare (red center). Our waiter Steve was excellent.

Came to YO for a post valentines dinner. The service was great. Our server Tomas was attentive and great with recommendations. The food was amazing and the atmosphere was as nice. There were a few dinner parties so noice was a little loud. We will definitely be making another trip..
