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.

We stopped here on our way through Wickenburg and had a wonderful meal. They made Chili Verde Burritos for us and the chili was great! The burrito was full of hot chili verde and then it was smothered with more chili and fresh Mexican cheese. Yum! They had an awesome guacamole dip and their salsa was to die for!!! The... More

Great family run restaurant. Although busy at noon, the staff still greeted us with a smile and kind words. Service was very quick and food was not only good but the portions were quite large. I would highly recommend this restaurant to any travelers in the Wickenburg, Arizona area !

I always order chili relleno to see if I will return to a Mexican Food Cafe. This one passed with flying colors. The taco salad is about the best I have ever eaten.

we were passing through and i happened to take a look at TA -- now, you would think that another hole-in-the-wall mex. food joint would all be the same.
