Steak
The highest quality Texas prime beef is the main focus at The Y.O. Ranch Steakhouse but its legendary for its extensive wild game selection, and many of those same animals roam freely over our 48,000 acre ranch and namesake near Kerrville, Texas. For those in the mood to try something out of the ordinary, The Y.O. offers venison, elk, wild boar, game birds, and our signature dish, the Buffalo Filet Mignon. Most of the beef at The Y.O. is local Texas Black Angus beef and hand cut in house. We employ a method very similar to the one the ranch hands have been using for more than 125 years.

We asked how to have a steak done to our waiter, and recommended medium. Well, they came out medium rare which didn’t make us happy.

Very nice steak place. Not the chain type place that Dallas has so many of. John took great care of our table for 9.

The steak was probably the best I have ever eaten! It basically melts in your mouth and the service was phenomenal!!! I will definitely be back!

This was our third visit. The pimento cheese balls were amazing. I had wild game trio & husband had filet. All cooked perfectly. We shared brussel sprouts & my husband loved them. I was too stuffed to enjoy. Also they brought us a dessert on the house bc we were celebrating our anniversary. Excellent. Definitely recommend.

Great Texas steakhouse, great service, food excellent, not too noisy. Decent wines by the glass; full dinners a bit pricey.
We tried this restaurant during restaurant week and will be back.

Tried the prefix restraint menu, overall meal was meh, nothing spectacular. Quail appetizer was over cooked, steak was cooked right and ok, lemon pie was mediocre. Would rather go to Del Friscos or even Saltgrass than this place.

Every thing was perfect! From our appetizers arriving and our entree being delivered with perfect timing after our appetizers. You don’t get the feeling you are being rushed to order to get in and out. Very relaxing enjoyable dinner. Our waiter was amazing I wish I remembered his name. We will be back soon.

I ordered the venison wrapped in bacon appetizer which is extremely salty which overwhelmed the taste of the venison. I also ordered the ribeye steak. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to enjoyed it. I ordered medium rare. Came first time medium to well. They tried to redo. The second steak came with center rare and cold with seared on the outside. The texture was chewy and lack flavor and taste based on the one bite I had. This is so sad as this place came highly recommended.

The steak was cooked correctly and the salmon was still moist. The atmosphere was quiet and elegant. The prices were a little high for the quality of the food. The sauteed vegetables were soggy & over cooked. The complimentary bananapudding was good,but more of a custard consistency. Overall it was good.

I went for my boyfriends birthday. We ordered the tomahawk steak, gouda Mac and cheese, and fries. We also ordered the mango margarita. We prefer our steaks to be well done or medium well. The waiter explained that due to the size of the steak, it only comes medium. He told me that if it came out and wasn’t as done as I’d like it, I could let him know and it could be cooked longer after it was cut. It was definitely medium when it came out and I just could not do it. I didn’t want to bother with having it sent back so I just had it boxed up and placed it in the oven the next day. It was delicious once fully cooked! The Mac and cheese was amazing! The fries were fries. I mean, you can’t really mess those up. There was complementary piece of chocolate cake provided for my boyfriend for his birthday. It was terrible. Overall, it was a great dining experience, the food was good, and our waiter was perfect.

Tomas served us and he was spectacular. He explained the menu in detail and thoroughly answered every question. His suggestions were on the money. The venison rollups were outstanding. The buffalo filet was delicious. And the pecan pie with ice cream was just sweet enough. Eager to go back.

If you have not been to the YO Ranch Steakhouse, I would recommend going there at least once. The restaurant is very Old West/Cowboy and if you are in Dallas, you might be looking for that type of atmosphere. We have been there several times over the years. We live in Houston. This last time, the restaurant ambiance is exactly how we remember it, the service fantastic, the menu just fine for selections, but the quality of food was just ok and not worth the money. My husband ordered buffalo medium, it was served well done. I ordered a New York strip and it was a poor cut of meat with many ligaments going through it. Cook should not seen that and not served it. I think the next time we are in Dallas, we should try a new place for this kind of money.

We loved everything about YO Ranch Steakhouse. The buffalo filet mignon did not disappoint. Even my picky eater started doing the happy dance when she tried the steak, Gouda Mac & cheese, & green beans. We will definitely be back!
