I have been going to the Bar-B-Que Ranch for YEARS. Yes, the building is just as it was in the 1950s, but I know their health rating is A+ from the state. The chicken is to die for and the barbeque is the same recipe from when the place opened. I have never had bad food nor any kind of experience you suggest (By the way I have 5 kids, who love the place, and the milkshakes) Usually the owners grandchildren and great grandchildren are around and will entertain. If you ever visit and find problems like you encountered, please ask to see the owner, Faye Bland. She will make it right!!! She takes so much pride in her staff, service and quality of food. The five stars are for the uniqueness of the venue and the great food.

The Bar B Que Ranch has been around for years!! Still in the same location, still the same car hops. You can eat in or take out and it is great food for the price...wonderful for the entire family.

This place is the bomb of Bar B Que, excellent food, it might be out in the middle of no where but it would not be same if it wasn't. The staff works extra hard to serve you and they stay busy but its worth the wait. They also have quite a collection of pigs. Almost entertaining,

I grew up with Bar B Q Ranch and will always love it, but I rarely get the barbecue there. The shrimp basket and the fried chicken are what bring me back. They've got the best fried chicken in town. I'd suggest calling ahead though and letting them know you're on your way because they make it up fresh and there will be a wait if you order it there. You have to go to see the inside if nothing else. Is there a decorating term called swine kitsch? If so, here is a perfect example. You have to see it to believe it. The ladies have always been nice to me as well. Oh, and I almost left something out, you can order from your car if you don't want to go inside. So, if you've been in the garden, feeling a little gritty, but want a chili dog or barbecue or some fried chicken, get in the car and pull up to the speaker.

You know it's a bad sign when as soon as you drive into the parking lot you feel the crunch of glass under your tires. This is typical at BBQ Ranch. After avoiding the stares of the riff-raff "hanging out" by the front door, we made it inside. We were glared in the direction of our seat by what my wife could only describe as a
"greasy woman beast". We scurried to the booth with our twin boys in tow. Though they are generally well-behaved, we could tell they noticed the employees obvious disdain at having children in the place. We ordered quickly so as to appease the waitress who was obviously struggling with a hangover from alcohol or...something else. Our food arrived quickly, but wasn't quite right. The BBQ sandwich my wife got was ice cold in the middle and tasted like pepper and mold (her words, not mine) My BBQ was okay, but I was so distracted by the flies buzzing around my head that I couldn't eat. At least the kids had chicken tenders which they thought were "awesome". Instead of complaining, we just scarfed down what we could manage, dropped our money on the table and hurried out.

this restaurant was unclean, the service was poor, and the food was ill prepared. I am a bbq lover. I know good bbq. The quality of the meat was poor. It tasted cheap, and it was not all cooked. My sandwich was cold and the bun had specks of mold on it. I am surprised the health inspecter hasn't shut this establishment down. I would not reccommend this place for families, the atmosphere was "trashy." It is located among several trailor parks along route 11. Not my cup of tea.
