Ranch 616 is the kind of place where you can enjoy yourself at full volume. This is where you come for a group dinner with a friend who likes to yell when he tells stories for dramatic effect and another friend who snorts when she laughs. Their Texas-style menu is heavy on the fried things, like crispy oysters and calamari and fish tacos, and there’s obviously plenty of red meat. For a nightcap (or a night starter), get the fire in the hole shot, which is served inside a fresh jalapeño.
