Born and raised in Olympia, Anderson was looking for a new home for her established BBQ Catering Company. It was during this time that the FoodNetwork chose to film her while competing at the Jack Daniel's World Championship Invitational in Lynchburg, Tennessee under their team name of Mad Momma & the Kid. Shortly thereafter, she stumbled across the "Ranch" and immediately knew it would be the perfect BBQ house. After several months remodeling, the doors were opened in April 2004.
Be sure and check back often to see where the Ranch House BBQ will be next! Come watch them compete or plan ahead and make Ranch House BBQ & Steakhouse your favorite stop when you're heading to the Ocean or out for a drive. Enjoy “Best of Western Washington” & "South Sounds Best BBQ" every day of the week just minutes from downtown Olympia.
