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.

Food was good and it was quiet. However I had requested patio seated but was told it was unavailable on arrival because they did not have the staff to handle it and the wait time was pretty long.

We've heard good things about Y.O. Ranch, we were not disappointed. They maintained good safety measures and the service was attentive. The lamb meatball appetizer was excellent. For the main meal our table got the bison steak (amazing), the Y.O. Salad was delicious and big enough for two, the Cowboy Bone in Ribeye (cooked to perfection), Buffalo Filet Mignon (soft as butter), Ribeye. For sides we ordered the recommended Brussels sprouts with Bacon (perfectly roasted), and the Mac & Cheese (not my preference and it was on the bland side). They have a very interesting variety of cocktails to explore. This is certainly a Steakhouse we will visit again.

The menu had great options for adults and kids. The drinks and service were fabulous; however, our steaks were overcooked. My husband ordered the buffalo filet medium rare and I ordered the filet mignon medium rare. Both arrived medium to medium well with very little to no pink center, which was pretty disappointing especially considering the price of the items. The pimento cheese appetizer was fabulous, but the asparagus was undercooked and the macaroni and cheese was just ok. Overall, our experience was a pleasant one, but the food was definitely not worth the price.

Responded on 29 March 2021

Hi Kate. I am sorry your steaks were not cooked to your preference and you were underwhelmed by our sides. I will talk to our kitchen to ensure accuracy of cooking and with our servers to check with our guests that meals are cooked to their specifications. I appreciate your feedback as it allows us to get better.

Service was lacking. Candle was not lit and server noticed and still did not light it. Was a bit before server came to us even though the place was not busy. Server was brash and did not go to any detail explaining menu. Ordered 10 oz filet and 18 ounce bone in ribeye. Steaks were cooked to our liking and flavorful, though not the most tender I have had. I may go back but I found the price to be a bit high. I've had worse and better. Didn't quite feel like we got $180 worth of service though that was the bill.

I went in thinking I would get a steak, but decided to go with the meatloaf, and I wasn’t disappointed. The sriracha ketchup was so good. The El Jeffe cocktail was also really good, and something I plan on trying to recreate at home.

As a first time guest, I had high expectations based on the feedback. The food was great... the atmosphere needs to match the food. Felt like I was in a Black Eyed Pea that served $70 steaks. Drink menu is weak and again does not match the quality of the food. Menus were tattered and gross (laminated... again don’t match the food quality)

This place is way overrated. I chose this location for Valentine's Day with my boyfriend and he was so disappointed. The chicken fried lobster has no flavor the sides were very "blah" the Brussel
sprouts were overcooked; just terrible. The Tomas made very bad suggestions he was pushy, arrogant, and was hovering more than a helicopter on Platoon, thumbs down and if I could have gave 0 stars I would have!

YO Steakhouse is a great, under rated steakhouse. We've been three times now and have had a wonderful experience each and every time we have visited. Oftentimes we'll find that when many other restaurants in Dallas are booked up, YO still has openings for reservations. This shouldn't be the case since it would usually win out head-to-head against most of the other options around. I'd highly recommend it.

The filet was delicious, cooked perfectly. The baked potato was not thoroughly cooked and so small it should have been embarrassing to the chef. We were seated in a small alcove which seemed intimate at first until the cold from the door made it so uncomfortable that the intimacy was a lost thought.
