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.

Food was very good, cocktail orders were fast waiter was very informative and in-gauging always on time for refills. Seating could be a little more intimate. Would definitely recommend Y.O. to friends.

Great location for walking to from downtown Dallas hotels. The ambiance is western with stuffed wild game. The service from Antonio was excellent! The menu choices would have satisfied any dining preference. Highly recommend!

The best wild game in Dallas. Espresso Crusted Elk was amazing. Our waiter, Tomas, paired my Elk with the perfect glass of Pinot Noir. And two words, BREAD PUDDING

Decor is Texas ranch country, though it is downtown Dallas. House salad to start at $10 was excellent. Very nice wine list including some Texas wines. Becker cab by the glass was a nice surprise at $10. I had strip steak. Flavorful but should have been warmer.

A nice alternative to pretentious steak houses. Friendly servers.

We were there to celebrate my son’s birthday so it was a nice surprise for him to receive a slice of flourless fudge cake complete with a candle!
However, while the service and the staff were great; my soup was, at best, lukewarm. Everyone that ordered steaks in our party all said that they’ve had better steaks elsewhere.

First time to the YO. Normally would hit Bob's Chop or Nicks but felt like branching out. Had a hard time finding a reservation with OpenTable (the establishment must only allocate so many an evening) although when entering a family of 6 was ahead of us without a reservation and were seated immediately. I'll plan to start call the restaurants directly of nothing shows in the time slot I desire. Even so, OpenTable is a good experience. Classic western setting and that's why you come to the YO. This a a relaxing, take your time, type of experience with much time for conversation. Do not expect your waiter to pamper you and the meal is timed very generously. So if you'd like things to move along or plan to catch the theater afterward be sure to mention that up front. The food is top shelf, Buffalo Filet - very good but the chef was off his game. Both my steak and my sons were cooked one grade down. Med came med rare and med rare came rare. The waiter did not introduce himself and he did not asks us to cut our steaks when served. But he was polite and its a tough job. Waited 15 min for being offered desert on not a busy night. Again, if we were in a hurry would could have flagged someone down. Overall a good experience. We checked the box but prefer a finer dinning experience. We ate at Del Frisco's the night before and would put them over YO but again it's close Del's 9.3 YO 8.7 and the YO could be just getting its legs back after COVID

I just think the steaks need a little more flavor for those new to eating steaks and Those that are a custom to eating steaks with little to none seasoning because we are after the meat. If your a steak guy you will be fine with the flavor but those that are new need that option. The sides were Absolutely delicious. I think that the steak house needs like something bigger that the patio as a waiting area because when it’s raining no one want to get wet with all the uneven sidewalks. Like a retractable awning for those waiting not trying to get your suits wet just waiting.

We love going to steak houses in different cities around the US , and YO Ranch served us the best sirloin steak & prime ribeye steak my husband and I ever had ! Cooked to perfection with the natural flavor a great cut of meat has . On our awesome server Nathan’s suggestion , we had the Gouda Mac & cheese that was ridiculously delicious , and Brussels Sprouts that were tasty but a bit too undercooked . Oh and almost forgot to mention the venison wrapped cheese appetizer , a party in your mouth ! - Great atmosphere & decor , exceptional service from bar and table , with food and beverages that we’ll never forget .

Unfortunately, I didn’t get to have the best experience. The evening I went the air unit was messed up and it was hot. I was not able to eat my meal and had to take it to go. After heating it up the next day it was okay but not fresh. My guests were able to eat some but were also uncomfortable. I’m hoping to make another visit while working in Dallas to get a better experience since it was highly recommend. Hope for better luck next time.
