A Finger-Lickin’ Family-Style Feast

Claim a picnic table with your kin and make yourself at home as our ranch hands bring you all the food you can handle!

Enjoy the great outdoors and sip lemonade or the soft drink of your choice from a mason jar as western performers entertain you on the Big Thunder Ranch Barbecue stage with boot-scootin’ songs and down-home banter. Just don’t get too comfortable ’cause lunch is on its way!

Tie on your napkin and get ready for some serious eatin’ as heaping helpings of barbecue chicken, ribs, coleslaw, ranch beans and corn bread appear before your eyes. As fast as you can make our vittles disappear, we’ll keep bringin’ ’em till you’re satisfied! At dinnertime, enjoy all this and then some: Smoked sausages and corn on the cob are added to the lineup.

Special vegetarian skewers featuring potatoes, squash, bell peppers, mushrooms and tofu can be requested for the veggie-totaler in your party, and dessert is available at an additional cost. Try the decadent flourless chocolate cake or go the whole hog with a made-to-order family-style dessert such as our warm, gooey deep-dish cookie à la mode or the sinful s’mores bake.

At the conclusion of your hearty country spread, we bid you and your kinfolk happy trails, until we eat again!
