You might think that Plant City is a little far to go for dinner, but my boyfriend and I have been seeing signs for Branch Ranch on I4 for as long as we can remember. On a recent trip back from Tampa, we decided to stop, and were amazed at how busy it was. Since we were only a part of two, we were seated immediately and treated to homemade buttermilk biscuits with homemade strawberry and pineapple preserves, and a plate of fresh raw vegetables. And let's not forget the amazing sweet tea! The menu had a family style eating option, and you picked an entree and were then served small pans of green beans, corn on the cob, fried eggplant, and chicken pot pie. I had the fried chicken and it was awesome, and my bf had the prime rib, which was better than Ruth's Chris (he says haha). But it was like 16-20 oz. of beef and tasted amazing. Definitely what I'm getting next time. Then I ordered a strawberry short cake, made with fresh strawberries (which are in season right now in Plant City) and a fresh buttermilk biscuit. So if you see the sign stop at Branch Ranch! It's definitely worth the trip.
