A portion of our proceeds goes to support our non-profit, Kids & Critters, Inc.

Reopening in April 2022


To all our cherished friends and valued customers:

We have some news… We wanted you to know that, because like so many other businesses, we are having a hard time finding capable staff to keep Dianne’s Ranch Diner open with all our homemade, made-from-scratch, Farm-to-Table cuisine, we are compelled to temporarily close our Diner until April. With the fair and rodeo industry back up in full force, our highly trained Ranch Girls will go on the road with our Great American Entertainment Company as we continue working with all our amazing fairs, festivals, and rodeos for the next three months.

Our plan is to reopen in April for our famous Easter Egg Hunt and have a grand reopening of Dianne’s Ranch Diner, Mother Cluckers Ranch Coffee house, and our Texas Junk Company store! We’ll also have some new ideas for teaching kids and adults how to cook and understand where food comes from. Kids Can Cook Academy will have its own brand-new kitchen, and we will be offering Everyone Can Cook classes as well. Also, we may start up our Ranch Ag-venture Tours.

We are going to reopen under our nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, Kids and Critters, Inc. and proceeds from Dianne’s Ranch Diner and other events will be donated to Kids and Critters, Inc. Our company, Great American Entertainment, has supported our nonprofit for over 35 years, and with all our new plans and ideas, we hope this community will participate in the future of Kids and Critters, Inc. We will tell you more about it very soon.

We just wanted to tell you how much you all mean to us. We love this community and the thousands of kids and families that have enjoyed getting to know all our critters. We have fantastic plans for the future and be assured that we have the ideas, vision, and ability to make them happen.

Thank you so much for being such amazing customers, friends, and neighbors, and we look forward to a very exciting future. God bless you all.

"So this place just opened a month or two ago.  I've had several take home meals from here and all have been amazing.  The Shepards Pie is as good as it gets.  The Lasagna is maybe the best I have had anywhere.....and I've eaten at some of the best Italian restaurants on earth (you can too if you eat here....who would have figured in Stephenville!). Fantastic concept and super nice people......you will not be disappointed!"

-Chad H.

As a realtor for the area, it is very nice to see and experience the family fun atmosphere, the great food and just the all around "country" lifestyle. The chickens roaming freely, kids laughing and having so much fun. The food was absolutely delicious, service was sweet and kind. This is a wonderful example of why I tell all my clients "This is the area you want to buy and live in". So much to offer!
