This was my first time at the Ranch and Reata Roadhouse in Santa Ynez. The atmosphere and bar there are amazing. The food was very good. I read the previous reviews and perhaps the new management finally got things straightened out? My friends shared a hamburger which they said was very good and they shared the mac and cheese which I tried that was very good also. I had the sirloin steak with a specialty sauce. I'm not a big sirloin fan usually but this one was really good, cooked perfectly, and the sauce was great. The vegetables were perfectly cooked, and I was very pleased with my meal. We also shared a deep fried cinnamon bun with ice cream for dessert. It was very good as well. There was enjoyable live country music being played by 2 musicians, and the bar scene looked cool. I'm happy to report that they seem to have gotten their food issues worked out, and the rest of the place is well worth a visit.
