It seemed there was a revolving door for restaurants at this vintage strip mall until Ranch House Grille came on the scene, tempting locals with cheap, old-fashioned eats at bargain prices. From huevos rancheros to Philly cheesesteaks, there are plenty of things to splurge on, but the hands-down star of this show is the chicken-fried steak. They call it "country fried steak," but nevertheless, it's an exemplary rendition of an American classic, with tender beef and golden, crunchy coating. Slathered in creamy, peppery country gravy or luscious pork chili verde, it goes down way too easily. And boy, what a portion — the thing takes up half the plate, but somehow we always manage to scarf it all down before we stop to think about the caloric repercussions.

Has the Ranch House sold almost 3/4 of a million chicken-fried steaks? Not hardly. Texaz Grill has, though. There's a reason for that.


I dont know what you were thinking when naming the best chicken fried steak but this is not it.Although it's pretty good it is not even close to the best almost tastes like store bought and also looks like one.If you want the best go to Chases diner on alma school and warner this is the best by far and it's huge and homemade you can barely finish it is so huge it takes up half your plate.Ranch houses i would rate a 6 out of 10.
