Bad prices, bad service, and disrespect – I find that their internet advertising is deceiving and inappropriate, along with their employees behavior. Upon advertising on Facebook the following statement: "dollar beers tonite!!!!! and $2 U-CALL ITS!!!! all the Way till 4am!! Come out and Play!!" (posted on Wednesday, October 13th). Upon entering and ordering what has been considered a $2 drink (a Long Island and a Blue Mother F'er), I was happy. However, I was informed upon closing out my tab that these drinks were no longer $2, but $5.50. These drinks are made with house/well liquor (I watched them being made), hence should fall under the $2 drink rule. Were there to be stipulations to the advertising made, this would be a different story. Upon addressing my concerns to the manager that these stipulations were not advertised or announced, either in written form at the bar when entering or on the internet advertising Cadillac Ranch is engaged in, I was told promptly to leave. I find this to be extremely offensive and rude considering I have been a long time customer at this establishment. I find the actions of the manager on duty October 13th and the bar staff to be inappropriate and ignorant. Should something be advertised, it should be fulfilled. I have doubts as to whether I would want to continue to be a patron at this business, as were the people that I went there with, when treated so poorly by the staff and management.
Cadillac Ranch bouncers – The bouncers here are a bunch of jokes, all of them. Get a job! How can you live with yourselves knowing you do that for a living? Losers.
Great Country Dance Bar!!! – Cadillac Ranch is a great place to go if you love country music and country dance. They do a 50/50 mix of line dancing and couples dancing (Texas 2-step, Double Two, Waltz, Swing, ChaCha) and do not allow freestyle dancers to take over the floor until 2AM. There are lots of good dancers, and if you come without a partner it's not a problem to find several.
Lots of people go to dance, and lots of people go to watch and listen to the music. It's a good crowd, and a variety of ages. Good drinks, not way overpriced, and a good restaurant in the same building if you get hungry.
After 2 AM on weekends, most of the country music fans have gone home and the party animals (20-somethings) come out. The music changes to rock and hip hop, and I've heard things can get pretty crazy. Not my scene, but it appeals to the younger crowd. That's okay, after dancing pretty much non-stop from 9PM to 2AM, my feet are ready to go home.
The number of good country dance bars has been seriously dwindling. This one's been around for a number of years, and with the good business they seem to do, it should be around for many more.
Avoid the creepies! – This bar is ok, and me my girls would come by here for the after party since all the other bars in the neighborhood close early. Sometimes there are a lot of creepy guys lurking around, but what bar doesnt have that? The music can be awesome around midnight, but before that they play country and everyone line dances (not my thing). FYI- there are some NASTY girls there haha... I mean discusting. There was this one chick who looked like a vampire she was so crazy on the stage with her skort. Its super easy to upset off the bouncers there, zero tolerance for anything, and they video tape all the fights that happen in the parking lot. It was a good time until some girl got in my face and the bouncers looked the other way while the police told me to stop making fun of her... Sorry I call out red necks when I see it!
he haw – I don't get into country, but I enjoyed the dancing and the atmosphere.
