It’s almost the weekend, time to break from your daily routine and enjoy some prime-time brunching. With a buffet of beautifully seasoned, roasted, and hand-carved prime rib of beef — plus breakfast standards such as omelets, French toast, pancakes, and waffles — Jackalope Ranch serves up the best Sunday Champagne Brunch for less than $30 in the Coachella Valley.
From the carving station featuring Jackalope’s signature prime rib and the marinated, seasoned, and slow-roasted leg of Colorado lamb to the breakfast and chilled seafood and salad stations, you can return time and again and never eat the same meal twice (unless you want to).
The leg of Colorado lamb is the world’s finest and prepared to perfection: marinated 24 hours; seasoned with garlic, rosemary, thyme, sea salt, and cracked pepper; and slow roasted the old fashioned way.
In addition to the carving station, which always features a third meat (turkey, ham, or brisket), you may enjoy baby back ribs, rotisserie chicken, blackened catfish, or roasted salmon served with jambalaya rice, whipped potatoes, sweet potato puree, glazed carrots, and green bean casserole. All meats are all sustainable, humanely raised, and hormone- and antibiotic-free.
Jackalope brines its barbecued meats for 24 hours with a time-perfected fusion of seasonings, spices, and molasses and uses proprietary dry rubs for the beef tri-tip, pork, and chicken before they go into the Southern Pride smoker with hickory, almond, and apple wood to achieve the mild and distinctive flavor.
The made-from-scratch sauces include a classic, all-American zesty and tangy barbecue that simmers for 24 hours, as well as a chipotle date barbecue sauce that marries the sweetness of local dates with the smoky heat of chipotle chili, and a habanero and prickly pear, which offers another variety of sweetly intense heat.
The buffet’s chilled seafood and salad station has a robust selection of shrimp cocktail, smoked salmon, a variety of salads (including Ceasar, mixed greens, tomato, pasta, coleslaw, potato, and bean), assorted vegetables and cheeses, and fresh fruit. The options change weekly based on what’s fresh and available on the produce markets.
At the breakfast station, you can make your own omelet and indulge in staples such as pastries, bacon, sausage, and the specialty of the week (French toast, pancakes, or waffles).
There’s also an assortment of breads and free unlimited champagne!
Sunday Champagne Brunch is served from 10 a.m to 2 p.m. $26.99. Arrive before 11 a.m. and enjoy the early bird price, $23.99 — a great value for families, seniors, and special occasions.
