We had an early dinner before the crowds. Food was excellent, service fantastic. The manager suggested some bourbons and guided us through the list. The wings were great, burger and fish. Well presented and great quality.

A western based restaurant with a lot of meaty meals. There are some salads available but I wouldn't really recommend for vegetarians. If you love meat, you'll love this place!

Hello! Truffle Tots are tater tots tossed in truffle oil, red chili flakes, fresh herbs and parmesan cheese. They are served as an appetizer at Bully Ranch. Thanks! Kelly
