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.

From the moment you walk in, it's an experience. From the western decor all the way to the fine taste of perfection from the kitchen. It's the perfect place to have a romantic dinner or to simply come and have a delicious and aged steak.

food was great, service was super slow, waiter forgot to bring something we asked for and also on reservation it asked for special request and I put my notes in there and nothing got done.

Great steaks and wonderful service. Our servers (Melissa and Jorge) had a very large group in the next room but you never would have known it. Jorge was knowledgeable about wine and recommended a great bottle.

Ordered the Wild Game Trio and the Chicken Fried Quail was the stand out dish for me! How the chef was able to get the batter to stay crispy underneath the gravy is a marvel! GREAT JOB!!

I went in thinking I would get a steak, but decided to go with the meatloaf, and I wasn’t disappointed. The sriracha ketchup was so good. The El Jeffe cocktail was also really good, and something I plan on trying to recreate at home.

As a first time guest, I had high expectations based on the feedback. The food was great... the atmosphere needs to match the food. Felt like I was in a Black Eyed Pea that served $70 steaks. Drink menu is weak and again does not match the quality of the food. Menus were tattered and gross (laminated... again don’t match the food quality)

This place is way overrated. I chose this location for Valentine's Day with my boyfriend and he was so disappointed. The chicken fried lobster has no flavor the sides were very "blah" the Brussel
sprouts were overcooked; just terrible. The Tomas made very bad suggestions he was pushy, arrogant, and was hovering more than a helicopter on Platoon, thumbs down and if I could have gave 0 stars I would have!

YO Steakhouse is a great, under rated steakhouse. We've been three times now and have had a wonderful experience each and every time we have visited. Oftentimes we'll find that when many other restaurants in Dallas are booked up, YO still has openings for reservations. This shouldn't be the case since it would usually win out head-to-head against most of the other options around. I'd highly recommend it.

The filet was delicious, cooked perfectly. The baked potato was not thoroughly cooked and so small it should have been embarrassing to the chef. We were seated in a small alcove which seemed intimate at first until the cold from the door made it so uncomfortable that the intimacy was a lost thought.

This is a review I always hate to write. This meal was absolutely terrible. This is hands down one of our worst dining experiences. The food was what I call garbage. The service was fantastic. The restaurant was beautiful. However, the kitchen needs help. I would be absolutely embarrassed if I produced a meal like ours especially at the price you pay.

The bartender made a special cocktail that was not on the menu and it was an exquisite Mexican Martini with Tahin rim.

Our service was awesome, timely, professionally fun and nothing was mosses on the mixed grill, oysters and lamb starter.
