Many people gush about this restaurant, but when the best thing you had was the fried macaroni balls, I would recommend going someplace else. I could barely get a sharp knife thru the rib meat. It was grey, and the fat lay in gobs instead...More

We were driving from Astoria towards Seattle and came across Ranch House BBQ. It has a BBQ truck outside and a huge metallic pig. So, we figured it could be a great stop over for a meal. From the outside, it's really very unassuming except...More

The hostess and waitress were great, personable and attentive. The food, well not so. Actually the sides were pretty good, especially the cornbread muffins. The BBQ, supposedly the best in Olympia, was mediocre at best. The ribs were charred on the outside and the fat...More

I was on a trip when I ate at that restaurant. I have no idea if they have meals to meet these dietary requirements. You could review their online menu to see if they have meals that might work. Good luck and happy travels.
