Bob’s Ranch House is one of our favorite steak houses. It’s extremely old school, located on a charming ranch quite near where we live. Every time we drive up the dirt road leading to the restaurant, I feel like we’re being transported back in time. The Ranch House has been in operation since 1955. Back then, it must have been literally out in the middle of nowhere, and probably seemed quite a trek from downtown Vegas! The walls are adorned with old western movie posters, and it’s like dining in an old lodge, wood burning fireplace and all.
The food is consistently good. I always get the same thing, an 8 oz filet, medium, with rice pilaf and salad with italian dressing. Yes, sometimes I can be a creature of habit, but it’s just so good! The filet is always tender, always cooked perfect, and so tasty that I’ve never even thought to add any sauce or extra seasoning to it. Adam tends to go between the New York strip and Rib Eye. All of the steaks are prepared to order on a mesquite grill. They do have other things on the menu, but why go to a steakhouse and not get a steak? The other side dish options are good too, especially the ranch house potatoes and twice baked potato. And of course everything is served with cheesy bread (aka Texas toast).
