Table Mountain Inn (Golden, CO)

The Table Mountain Inn is a great place located right in the heart of downtown Golden. While the prices are a bit high for lunch, their south western variation on ranch is pretty good. I give it 6.5 out of 10.

I recommend getting a side of their awesome steak fries for dipping.

Via Baci Italian Bistro (Lone Tree, CO)

So my wife and I got a gift card to Via Baci Italian Bistro in Lone Tree, CO for Christmas and finally got to use it last week. I was expected a fast food dive... but this place was great! Great food and awesome service! Almost every night they have a special (except Wed). I had to try their ranch and blue cheese and was impressed. That said, the blue cheese was better since it had generous portions of blue cheese crumbles.

We will definitely be back.

Via Baci Ranch = 8
Via Baci Blue Cheese = 8.5

Panera Bread

I ran into Panera super quick for lunch and grabbed their new "chicken cobb" salad with vinaigrette dressing. Now I am not one to evaluate vinaigrettes... but this salad rocked! The dressing with the blue cheese crumbles was awesome! Not as good as my wife's homemade dressing... but great anyhow.

Panera Bread Vinaigrette Dressing = 8

CB & Potts

Last night I stopped by CB & Potts (Colorado Only Restaurant) and grabbed a steak with fries. The waitress mentioned that the ranch dressing was homemade and not just bottled. I got pretty excited since she also mentioned how Chili's and Red Robin have rock'in ranch too. When the ranch came to the table... it was a let down. It was about two notches above Kraft. Sorry CB & Potts, you have a great place with great food, but I would truck in some hidden valley.

CB & Potts Ranch = 5

Hickory House Ribs (BBQ)

If you venture to Parker, CO, this is a must stop. The menu is obvious BBQ... but has so many options! Plus the Ranch Dressing is homemade and is incredible!

I was back over at Rock Bottom and had some of their ranch again. I have good news -- the ranch has been fixed. It is the same old ranch I came to expect. Im sure they ran out of the good stuff. Here's my updated Rock Bottom Ranch rating:

Rock Bottom Ranch = 7.5

Litehouse Salsa Ranch

So my wife and I were over at one of my best friend's home and they introduced us to a new ranch - Litehouse Salsa Ranch. (http://www.litehousefoods.com/product_details.asp?pid=25) I was very surprised how good it tasted - especially for a low cal dressing. (most low cal dressing are also low taste) It had a little kick to it too. I would consider using it as a dip for veggies, etc...

Litehouse Salsa Ranch = 6.5
