Willow Ranch Restaurant has been a favorite of mine for many years. It is a family-friendly restaurant and they go out of their way to make sure their guests enjoy the food. The menu has a wide variety of choices, including my favorite, the Southern Fried Chicken Salad loaded with chicken, bacon, cheese and avocadoes. The Deep Pit Beef Sandwich is tender, juicy, and lean, served with their homeade BBQ sauce–guaranteed to please any meat eater! Don’t forget to try the homemade banana cream and chocolate pies, not to mention the peach cobbler and apple crisp.
How convenient to have Willow Ranch Restaurant so close to the I-5 freeway! The restaurant is family owned and operated and they pride themselves on the personal service. Several of the regular guests, including myself, don’t even need to order because the servers automatically known what we want. The Fiesta Melt is a must–roast beef, monterey jack cheese, ortega chiles and tomatoes grilled on sourdough bread with their special spicy dressing. On Fridays, they serve a wonderful New England-style Clam Chowder–with just the right consistency and flavor for me.
Love this place
Beef brisket, tri tip and ribs yummm especially after a track day. T-Hill is missing a place like this.

This is my stop any time I’m headed north on the 5. I recommend the tri tip sandwich. It’s sort of a specialty of the house. I’m also a big fan of French dip sandwiches and they do a great job with theirs.

Yummy. Had the BBQ pork and the BBQ tri tip hot sandwiches. Both excellent. Great, friendly service and clean. Obvious pride taken with food prep. Huge serving sizes. Nice stop right off the 5 if you’re looking for a sit down restaurant alternative to fast food.
