Saddle Ranch Chop House was founded in September 1999. The vision was to create a destination restaurant, where unlike others, guests could come for a great home-style meal and down-home hospitality and stay long after their plates had been cleared, immersing themselves in a high energy, rock-western experience.


The first location was on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood, California. The restaurant became famous for bringing a Western feel to the trendy, upscale location.

Each restaurant features a mechanical bull that patrons can attempt to ride.

The restaurant has appeared many times in popular culture, showing up on TV shows such as Sex in the City, The Bachelor, Desperate Housewives, The Girls Next Door, Bad Girls Club, Charm School with Ricki Lake, Burning Love and Rock of Love.[1]


Today there are four locations:

Reality Show[edit]

In 2011 VH1 began airing a reality show that follows the lives of the staff from both Los Angeles locations. Saddle Ranch premiered on April 17 as part of VH1's new Sunday night prime time line up. "Saddle Ranch" takes us on a sex , rock 'n roll mechanical bull ride into the lives, loves, and "fake it 'til you make it" dreams of the guys and girls who work at this iconic restaurant - from the hosts at the bottom of the totem pole, to the beautiful bartenders and wait staff, to the demanding managers who watch their every serve and pour.[2] The reality show follows 11 of the bar's employees.[3]
