This is a place that knows its beef. Really. With 70,1000 - 100,000 head of cattle at any one time and producing 1.5million plus lbs of beef annually, it also produces an enormous amount of methane gas - you can smell it in the parking lot. But the food and atmosphere is great (no smell inside), beautiful and happy! You... More

First thing sorry no pictures. The food was amazing my prime rib was cooked to perfection. The waiters and waitresses kept our drinks full at all times without us having to ask. Kid friendly and handicap accessible. A little on the expensive. $$$ but I think worth it for the good food..

We heard the beef was good here. An understatement. It is expensive but you receive value for your $ in both quality and quantity. We stopped while driving from Palm Springs to Sacramento. A wonderful break. The steak was so tender and perfectly prepared. The salads were fresh and crisp. The service was great and very friendly. Well worth the... More

Coming back from Lake Tahoe, this is exactly half way down highway 5 to LA. the best place to stop and take a break. It is the best and almost only sit down restaurant on the way down. The are many other places, but all fast food like Burger King. A bit pricy for some. Hamburgers from $15, and steaks... More

I can not say enough about the amazing meals we've had at Harris Ranch! My mouth is watering right now just thinking about the delicious steak I ordered for dinner! The meat is excellent quality but it is seasoned and cooked to perfection as well! And the Chuck Wagon soup is out of this world!! I am not a huge... More

We have stopped at Harris Ranch a few times but this is the first time we've had a meal and were underwhelmed - especially for the price. The kids meals were fine. I had the beef stew which wasn't anything special. The service was fantastic, though. I'm sure we'll stop here in the future - but maybe just for a... More

My husband had pot roast, I had the chicken salad sandwich, one son had grilled cheese and one son had a hot dog. EVERYTHING was delicious and good sized portions. They even have Almond Milk....

On the long I5 run between Los Angeles and San Francisco passed the endless lemon trees and Almond bushes the Harris Ranch is a wonderful Oasis of excellent food and surroundings.

Yum. We went for what they do best: beef. We both had the Oak Smoked prime rib. I usually find prime rib lacking in flavor on the lean part and adding horseradish sauce of gravy is necessary. Not with this one. Delicious. And the 'petite' portion is enormous! So don't be fooled into getting the larger cut. Their yams are... More
