Since its opening in 2009, The Ranch at Las Colinas has become a Lone Star institution, an approachable steakhouse offering the best in southern hospitality, with Texan musicians playing routinely at the Pavilion and Texas-sourced food filling patrons’ plates. 

One of The Ranch’s key commitments is the use of locally sourced ingredients in a chef-driven menu, with olive oil sourced from Carrizo Springs, grass-fed beef from Stephenville, fresh bread from Dallas, cornmeal from Denton, and much more from the Lone Star State. Whether ordering Mini Elk Tacos, Cornmeal Fried Texas Gulf Oysters, or a Ribeye cooked in cilantro-lime butter, you can count on local ingredients. 

The Ranch, true to its name, handpicks meats from ranchers all over Texas for signature dishes like the Roasted Garlic Stuffed Filet, Wagyu Tomahawk Ribeye, and Smoked Angus Prime Rib. Complementing these hefty cuts are a range of delicious sides like Cilantro Basmati Rice, Charred Broccolini, and Grilled Baby Zucchini. 

To round out your meal, The Ranch offers memorable desserts that embody true Texas Heritage with an urban refresh. Enjoy well-known favorites like Whiskey Bread Pudding or Route 66 Pecan Pie, or try a unique offering like the Chipotle Chocolate Layer Cake served with local vanilla ice cream from Plano. 

Whether you want catering, private dining, or a casual dinner, The Ranch is more than happy to accommodate. Private dining spaces are available for Monday through Saturday, with Sundays available upon request. The live entertainment wing, the Pavilion, hosts upwards of 150 guests and features a fire pit, performance stage, and private outdoor and indoor bar. It’s the perfect destination for a stress-free group dining experience.

Another option is the comfortable Eldorado room, which offers a more intimate experience for your private meeting or event. The cozy wood paneling and plush chairs ensure that you can kick back and relax while you wine and dine. 

All rooms at the Ranch offer happy hours as well, promising a great time. You can even savor a memorable wine over cigars to truly heighten the evening. All this and more is possible at The Ranch, with an extensive drink list that has been awarded the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence year after year. 

Elite 2021 Yelp user Jamie Y. rates The Ranch a full 5 stars. She mentions her search for a restaurant that served comfort food with outdoor seating. This led her to The Ranch, to her great satisfaction. She loved the Elk Tacos, and was so satisfied she brought her parents the very next day. Elite Yelper Rajata K. cites the welcoming southern drawls of the staff, cigars, and the Jalapeño Cheddar Biscuits as positives. Yolanda H. calls The Ranch “upscale comfort food,” and was enamored with the Texas ranch décor, Elk Tacos, and Garlic Steak.

Locally sourced ingredients from across Texas, live music from remarkable musicians, intimate and ambient environments as seen in the cozy décor, all grounded by hearty, delicious Texas-style comfort food — it’s not a stretch to say The Ranch is a Texas dining heavyweight. A multi-faceted restaurant, with a range of options for meat lovers and vegetarians alike, The Ranch will make you feel at home whether you’re in a suit or jeans and a t-shirt. Southern hospitality and delicious, locally sourced food make two halves of a Texas whole.
