A favorite with frat boys and tourists, Saddle Ranch transplants the rock-western chop house from the heart of Texas to the world-famous Sunset Strip.
As patrons mosey in, they’ll most likely come upon a wild scene where LA cowgirls, lured by cash prizes, down drinks and mount the mechanical bull to the drunken cheers of vacationing Midwesterners and regulars from the O.C.
Like most things in Texas, the place is huge and kitschy, with no shortage of cowboy hats, saddles, rustic wood trappings, and folksy touches like the “No fightin, no bitin, or coughin” sign.
When there’s a lull in cute coed action, sports fans turn their attention to the plethora of flat screens, while much of the backwards-cap set settles down at the tables and booths to wash their short ribs down with three-foot-high beer towers.
Although a sizable morning-after crowd stops in to chill out on the wraparound veranda, watch football, and exchange hangover cures over bottomless mimosas, it’s clear that the real party happens at night when rowdy young locals and college kids show up for out-of-control drink fests.
Loud and campy with a little karaoke on the side, Saddle Ranch is perfect for out-of-towners in search of a crazy good time and manly men looking to lasso a filly.
Lively and outgoing tourists, sports fans, frat boys, West Hollywood locals, and college students, early 20s to 30s.
