We ordered the Thanksgiving dinner so that we wouldn't have to cook. The "brown gravy" was a grey, gelatinous mess. Tasteless, and would not heat up even after being on the stove for an hour! It was still just a grey chunk of gelatin! I...More

Recent experiences at Valley Ranch Grill have been average at best. Meats have seemed bland, BBQ sauce watery, sides lukewarm, weak tea, bad coffee and no longer serving beer. Not sure what happened since our 4/21/2015 review, but disappointing lately.

Ate here twice on my last trip to Houston - was looking for a good texan BBQ/smoke house, and was not disappointed. Had the 2 meat combo plate with beef and links. Onion rings were good, though not great.

I love BBQ and have eaten at many places plus cook quite a bit of it myself. Valley ranch is good but not great. Everything is mesquite smoked which gives it a bite and they add quite a bit of pepper on top of that....More

One of several bar-b-que restaurants within 10 miles of Tomball. Food is very good, friendly staff, clean restaurant and decent price. Last time I was there I had the Chef Salad (it's been awhile), and it was excellent.
