What You'll Get
Houston's settlers built their city on a barbecue bayou, and for decades their city sunk 2 feet a year into the smoky, tangy quagmire until they found a solution: drain the swamps of the sauce and slather it on their ribs. Eat your way out of a hungermire with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of savory barbecue and drinks at One Star Ranch. This Groupon is good for the Alpharetta location.
With a no-nonsense approach to barbecue brilliance, the menu at One Star Ranch provides barbecue appetizers and barbecue sides next to barbecue meats covered in barbecue sauces. Kick off the Q with a half-tub of onion rings ($4.99) or a platter of 20 wings ($14.99); then, ignite the rib flight with a regular order of pork ribs ($11.99), a half slab of baby-back ribs ($13.99), or a heartily stacked regular plate of One Star Ranch's signature beef ribs ($16.99). Full of meaty hunkaliciousness, the generously portioned ribs allow hands and mouths to happily tug from the bone in pursuit of the napkin-laden finish line. All rib orders, barbecue chicken orders, and barbecue plates come with two sides. Side dishes include Brunswick stew, baked beans, coleslaw, green beans, corn on the cob, and jalapeño cornbread, all made daily from scratch and scientifically designed to complement the flavors of the ribbery’s mouthwatering sauce.
Let your fingers get saucy at One Star Ranch, where guests are encouraged to relax while they feast on meaty fare. Let your hair and facial hair down on Friday and Saturday nights during live music performances at the Alpharetta ranch, or stop in any night of the week to sample the savory fruits of One Star Ranch's more than 20 years of barbecuing experience.
- The initial scents found inside Alpharetta barbecue joint One Star Ranch — its sister shop operates out of Buckhead — twirl around the nostrils promising a smoking good time. The same goes for the Texas-style cantina decor from glowing neon to the rattlesnake skin stretching above the full bar. – Jon Waterhouse, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
- The combination of meat and fat provided an incredible flavor that I had previously never experienced in a beef rib. I didn't divert my attention away at all until all the meat had been meticulously pulled away and devoured from the bone which I had to eventually remove from the plate so I could attack my sides. – 3rd Degree Berns Barbecue Sabbatical

- If you are looking for good BBQ, you have to swing by One Star Ranch. The food is great, good size portions and they have inside and outside seating. I highly recommend this place! – Maria E., InsiderPages
- Great Flintstone-sized ribs! Place can get a bit noisy amidst the blare of a blues band on the weekends, but do try a large order of beef ribs... smoked to fork-tender perfection after 12 hours with a side of baked beans and jalapeno cornbread. – Luke Mauricio, Zagat
