Real home country cooking. The staff is always right there. It's always packed- from coffee to main meal to desert, there is not one thing on Ranch Hands Menu, that you will not absolutely love.

Chicken fried steak is the so large it fills the whole plate, a grown man has trouble finishing it. Dinning area is small so tables are close but the customers are friendly, a Family atmosphere.

Wait staff was very friendly. Food was quite good. Hamburger steak could have been seasoned a little more. Great loaded baked potato. Fried green tomatoes were good. Slightly on the pricey side.

Down home country cookin'! Every meal they make is delicious (and we've tried most of them over the years). From chicken fried steak (probably considered their specialty) to club sandwiches and burgers to huge fried shrimp and sooo much more, it's ALL good! I hear their desserts are good too, but we're always too stuffed to try one. They give... More

We happened to be in the area at lunch time after having visited a family member. So, we turned to trusty TripAdvisor and this restaurant ranked at the top of the list. The special of the day was chicken and... More

The have excellent chicken fried steak. Catch them on ribeye night, you will be hard pressed to find a better steak any where close. The salads have always been fresh. They do close early around 8:00pm.

We had a good quick comfort food lunch with good service. The hamburger steak with onions was good. So was the fried okra and sweet potato fries. My husband had chicken strips with mashed potatoes and green beans. He agreed that everything was good and the service was great.
