Cigar Aficionado Magazine gives big shout-out to The Ranch at Las Colinas

Calling out its cigar selection, wine cellar deep with Old World bottles, tomahawk chops and smoked-then-fried chicken, Cigar Aficionado Magazine reviewed The Ranch at Las Colinas and gave the “sophisticated steakhouse in a down-to-earth atmosphere that caters to cigar loversmodern steakhouse” a strong endorsement.

Writer Larry Olmsted knows his stuff. The NYTimes best-selling author and USA Today food columnist also notes the “high-end steak spot masquerading as a casual western roadhouse that serves comfort foods like fried chicken with draught Lone Star beer alongside $100 dry-aged Tomahawk steaks and first-growth Bordeaux, the Ranch at Las Colinas tries to be everything to everyone—and succeeds.”

Cigar Aficionado concludes that beyond “all the steakhouse favorites like Caymus, Silver Oak, Stag’s Leap, Jordan and Heitz, you’ll find lots of Burgundies, Barolos, and expense account choices such as Penfolds Grange Hermitage in several vintages, a 2013 Château Haut-Brion, and the priciest offering, a double magnum bottle of 1947 Château Lafite Rothschild for $16,000.

“There are more than 500 labels in all, and every single one—even the Lafite—is included in the weekly half-price wine bottle Saturdays. But the cigars are mostly paired with whiskies, and there are also tons of dessert and fortified choices. The Ranch would be a great spot to eat or drink even if it didn’t have Irving’s best setting for cigar lovers. But, it does.”
