8371 Sunset Blvd.
A large, western saloon type restaurant in the heart of the Sunset Strip with a big horseshoe bar and many tables overlooking their famous bull riding ring.
Happy Hour: 4pm to 6:30pm Monday through Friday. (Anything ordered after 6:30pm reverts to normal menu prices.)
Here’s the deal
½ off drinks and appetizers
What to Drink: Ketel One martini for $7 or a glass of Pinot Noir for $4.
What to Eat: We recommend the spicy lettuce wraps for $5 – you spoon your choice of chicken or shrimp into half a head of lettuce. The bbq pork ribs are great at $6.50 which includes fries or great sweet potato fries (if you ask). Black truffle mac and cheese is $7. Quesadillas are $4 and steak is an extra $2.50.
Bartenders to Meet: Two of Saddle Ranch’s many friendly and good looking bartenders are Mark, who is in college studying to be a teacher and the very attractive Rachel, who has many colorful tattoos and is studying to be a veterinarian.
An Extra Tip: As you exit the restaurant, there is a set up with a container of hot chocolate and little cups – which is a great dessert to top off your happy hour meal and drinks.
Parking: Valet for $3 – a real bargain on Sunset Blvd.
