If you like steak, you'll love this place. My favorite meal is Arrachera Molcajete and a cold Dos XX. The salsas and sauces for the chips and entrees are fresh, spicy, and everything you'd ever want in a great Mexican meal. I always go to the one up by the marinas at the far end of the Malecon as I... More

IT is good Mexican food. The portions are good, but some times the quality of the meat is not so good even when you order the higher grade meat. The serveice has gotten much better than it used to be.

I've eaten at the original Rancho Viejo location every year for the last 10 years. Their beef, pork and chicken tacos are definitely worth ordering: all meat is well cooked and seasoned. They provide excellent condiment platters with salsas, avocado based dips, marinated onions, pickled peppers,... If you have a fragile stomach, you might want to go easy on the... More

Rancho Viejo is a great place for tacos. The Arrachera are my favorites.Prices are modest the service is sometimes slow but you are in Mexico. Slow down enjoy the hospitality.

A spur-of-the-moment decision turned out to be absolutely delicious. My family of four definitely enjoyed our dinner at Rancho Viejo. The arrachera (sp) tacos were absolutely delicious -- order them. The queso fundo was fantastic, too. The service was exceptionally fast and we were very pleased with the overall experience. Seating was inside and out. We liked dinner so much... More

My wife and I enjoyed a late breakfast/brunch here during a recent visit to La Paz. The food and service were very good and the location right on the Malecon is great.

If you are looking for basic, but good, inexpensive food, this place can't be beat! Three locations in La Paz.

We really enjoyed our al fresco dinner at Rancho Viejo. A fresh and crisp relish tray of radishes, peppers, pickles etc... is brought to your table before the meal is served. Delicious with cerveza! I had the beef arrachera tacos while my husband had tacos with grilled chicken. Both were delicious, tender and very flavorful. The relish tray also included... More
