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.

This is my 4th time eating here and my last...not sure if it’s covid or what but tables weren’t set, service was rushed, food was mediocre at best and at 85$ / person not worth it...there are plenty of other higher class steak joints in DFW area...will not be back to Y.O.

We checked out steak places downtown and YO Ranch popped up as one of the top so we were up for a change from the traditional chop or steak house. The restaurant was quiet, maybe 2 tables were seated. My chair’s vinyl was peeling from the corner and We didn’t receive utensils or napkins upon being seated. Paint was peeling from a light fixture in the ladies bathroom and stall doors were dirty. Drinks were ok, my husbands drinks were never the same.
The waitress was nice but not very professional, she forgot my salad and the fact that my sons bday was mentioned upon reserving our table but was never mentioned at the restaurant was unusual. We don’t believe she ever even asked us how our meal was.
We won’t return for the price we were changed for our meal. Meals such as these come with quality and service. The food wasn’t enough to stand on its own.
I realize things have changed with Covid but only those that shine will prevail.

My wife and I came here for our 1 year anniversary. Food was incredible. We tried the appetizer with exotic meats and it was incredible. Everything is a bit expensive but as long as you know that going in then you are fine. Service was also very good and the manager even came by to ask how it was going. I’d go back for another meal.
