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.

Second time and previous waiter John was excellent. On this event I believe they were short of waiters & had someone that was not a waiter. Food was excellent.

Poor attention to detail
Very dramatic low light levels
Seating was unflattering
Cook on steak was under
Food was cold after the first 5 minutes due to being sat under an AC vent

Everything was delicious. We ordered drinks and appetizers; the drinks came right away, and the appetizers weren't far behind. Our entrees were brought out fresh as we were finishing the appetizers. Meals at the YO have become a treat for my wife and I, and this visit confirmed that we will be back again and again.
