I had beef enchiladas, rice and beans. Sauces had no flavor, gooey corn tortillas. The salsa and chips were good.

IMHO,The El Rancho has the best tasting and most authentic Mexican food in Wickenburg. My favorite meal here (so far) is the Tres Enchiladas combo. Service has been very friendly and helpful. Alcohol is served so you can have your beer or margarita, etc. as you desire.

Always have a good meal here. Everything was good tonight. Only problem, we were seated near the front door. There was a very cold wind blowing. Every time someone entered or left it was very cold. Will eat in the other room on our next visit. Or, wait for 65°F... Tamali's and Tacos were very good as expected. Plenty of... More

Went there with the wife for lunch. We drove up from Suprise just to eat here. Very good chips and salsa. The chili relleno was good and I had 3 way enchilada's. We have eaten at many Mexican restaurants and this one is the best.

We have been here four times now and have never been disappointed with our food! A typical small town cafe with a mixed clientele both local and from nearby Sun City West and Sun City Grand. Friendly servers and though they are often packed during early dinner hours and at lunch it has always been a very short wait. Huge... More

Delicious green chile sauce, best ever! Green chile tamale 2die4. Relleno smothered in green chile sauce-so good. Best Mexican food ever, we go out of our way just to eat here!

We go to this family owned restaurant every chance we get because of the huge selection, and specially prepare broiled fish, as well as the best Renellos you have ever eaten.

Dropped by El Ranchero for lunch and was so pleased, the food is exceptional. I did notice their four NEW awards, one for the hottest salsa, another for the best guacamole and the other two were people's choice awards. The prizes were earned last month so they hadn't had time to hang the plaques yet. I ordered a beef taco... More

We've been going to this family owned & operated restaurant for years. Any time we have out of area guests we always take them to El Ranchero. The food is always fresh and delicious, the service good, and the drinks icy cold. We've gone through the menu and never found a bad choice.
