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.

Everything was amazing! We had the venison appetizer and it was amazing. So was the salad. Along with our steaks, we ordered the Gouda Mac and cheese and the Brussels sprouts. We will be going back when we’re back in Dallas. And the service was exceptional!

Unique Dallas Steakhouse. Interior was fun with animals all around. People ultra friendly. Location is kind of in a sketchy area [we walked from AT&T Tower]. Most of the food was good but not great. Buffalo filet was a bit overcooked and really not that tender for $48. I would give it another try.

We were not seated until 45 minutes after our reservation time. They over booked their reservations. Twice the hostess lied to us about the status of our table.

One of the filets was full of grissel and not edible. The waiter simply said that that happens sometimes in a cut of beef and that we should accept that as normal. The manager finally came over and simply apologized. He did not offer to comp the steak until we told him later how disappointed we were.

Absolutely love this place! Best buffalo steak ever. I marked down on the service only because I was placed in the same section as a table of 15. Waiter focused more on them but was still polite. The manager perhaps owner asked me how I was and the meal. So awesome

We went to YO Steakhouse as a family and had need of a wheelchair accessible table. They were very accommodating. Our meals were fantastic and cooked perfectly. Their Gouda MacNCheese is fantastic and the chicken fried quail with mushrooms is delicious. The bison filet is always cooked perfectly and so juicy and flavorful. Thanks for making our experience amazing and worthwhile.

This steak was amazing. Actually every bit of the food was off the charts. I had the buffalo filet and it was SUPER flavorful and very tender as a filet should be. It was cooked perfectly. I had a side of mashed potatoes that were also very good but I couldn't finish all of them because, let's face it, I was there for the steak. The staff was super attentive and helpful. Overall, a great experience and I will return when I am in Dallas again.

Food was great but I didn’t like that we had to order the side dishes. It didn’t come with the meal. Also the noise level was very loud to where I couldn’t hear my date sometimes. Other than that our waiter was awesome and the food was delicious! Next time we know to order bigger steaks.

Overall the food was good - the side items did come out cold and we were finished with the main portion of our meal prior to them coming back but the manager did remove that from our bill. My husband ordered the Buffalo which to me was not very good for the price. My steak was a bit overdone but still very tasty.

Poor quality steaks, cooked incorrectly. Service was very good but overall experience not on par to other $$ steakhouses. Sides were fair, gouda mac & cheese was outstanding. Desserts were very good. Should have tried the wild game instead but server assured us the steaks would please.

2nd time at YO and we've never been disappointed. Had tried another highly rated steakhouse last time we were in Dallas and felt a little let down so headed back to YO this go around. This place is awesome. The location is easy to find, plenty of parking, love the decor and the menu has something for everyone. Get the venison rollups and the cheese fritters, both were excellent as were the bar drinks and service.
