If you live in the area, you probably eaten here before. Home-cooked meals at their best. If you're traveling on US 59 through Cleveland Texas, this is a must. From the giant chicken fried steak to the more than abundant banana pudding and all the fixings it's well worth the trip. When you drive in the driveway, you'll then realize... More

In season fried green tomatoes are the best. Had several items from the menu and all were good. They are known for chicken fried steak but I have not tried it yet. Huge portions so always order the small. The décor is cluttered and it is not fancy but it is clean. Staff always answers questions.

Good, fresh, home-style meals at reasonable prices. It looks like a little shack but the food is really good. We had the onion rings for an appetizer and they are huge! Then ordered the "small" chicken fried steak. There was nothing small about it. There was enough for three meals. Everything was fresh, hot and really good. Service was good... More

Monte Christo sandwich, chicken fried steak, huge burgers....it's all good and all the portions are huge. Don't let the outside fool you, it's homemade food and a whole lot of it.

The place was packed, which was a good sign, and we were told there would be a twenty minute wait. That was fine with us. Our wait turned out to be an hour. Still fine as they were very busy. My husband's chicken fried steak was mostly breading and was soggy with grease. The mashed potatoes had chunks in them... More

Friend took us for dinner. Had the deep fried shrimp. It was amazing. Restaurant batters everything themselves. Must try the onion rings and be sure to order the green beans. Best I've ever had in a restaurant. Family had catfish, hawaiin chicken and chicken fried steak. All good. Huge portions and do NOT miss the banana pudding but only order... More

The food is good and big portions served. The staff is very friendly. The building is not in the best shape, but the food makes up for it.

Down home feel, great food and extremely large portions are at the heart of this restaurant. Cash has advantages and space is very limited, so come early!

Real home country cooking. The staff is always right there. It's always packed- from coffee to main meal to desert, there is not one thing on Ranch Hands Menu, that you will not absolutely love.
