When arriving to Medellin or when visiting its amazing surrounding towns, you got to visit El Rancherito. The bandeja Paisa maybe one of the best you can find, also the empanadas will make you a big fan of them.

They are constant with their quality. Rarely goes wrong. For paisa food, reliable quality Rancherito and Asados Exquisitos never fail.

I liked everything I ordered. I got this bowl that was like a medley of all different types of food in it. I don't remember the name but it tasted fantastic. I will definitely eat there next time I go back.

I visit Colombia a lot for business and every time I go to Medellin I make a point to visit El Rancherito. I don't eat red meat or any of the high fat, or fried foods typical in the Paisa diet, but I sit find plenty to eat with selections of grilled fish, rice, vegetarian beans, great salads, and phenomenal...

I've been to El Rancherito multiple times at different locations, yes, it's a common place to go when looking for typical Colombian food near Medellin. Rancherito is a large ranch style building serving everything under the sun, from rice and beans to burgers and seafood, the menu looks like the one from the Chinese restaurant and that's a problem, since...

I'm not going to say this is the best restaurant in the city, but it is certainly the best "paisa food" restaurant around. I ordered the "cazuela con chicharron" and it was excellent. They gave me a healthy portion as well. The only reason for a 4 instead of 5 is how plain the food was. There was nothing that... More

I'm a paisa living in the States so going to El Rancherito is comfort food to me. Love the big chorizos and the atmosphere, always open air with plenty of spaces for the kids to play.
