Good meal

We enjoyed our meal at this Mexican restaurant. Food was very flavorful and good. Only issue was that they didn't have cheese dip so kids were little disappointed.

Eating late so I wanted a reasonably light dinner, without a lot of spices. I ordered a cheese quesadilla. Two others ordered the chicken enchilada and I person ordered the flautas. On the side a tamale was ordered. Everything was extremely fresh. I could have eaten the pre-meal salsa with a spoon. The cheese on my quesadilla must have been... More

This restaurant used to be the Bishop Grill and retains the same ambiance. It is like visiting a movie set set in the 50s, with friendly staff and delicious, very authentic Mexican food. They don't oversalt the food and the ingredients taste fresh. My relatives from TN and my "comadre" from NM were impressed with the home-style Mexican fare :)... More

Loved the food. Being from Los Angeles, we have allot of really good Mexican Restaurants. Our expectations here were not real high. We were proved wrong. The food was Delicious! The guacamole was just right, and my Chile Verde, Taco, Enchalada, Rice, & Bean plate was served quickly, and hot. Excellent Mexican Restaurant, priced right. Our waitress may have been... More

This little Gem is just what we needed after a long day of travel! Great cozy atmosphere and the staff are really nice! It's Xmas day and there isn't many options open in town and this place is genius being open, there is standing room only and the food is great! Worth a visit for sure!

We've been here a couple of times on our Sierra hiking trips and have always had a good experience. Portions are generous, the homemade salsa chips are addictive and on my quest to find the worlds best fish taco, this place is tied for 1st with a place in Eden Utah I've reviewed earlier. Well worth the stop if your... More

I have tried both Mexican restaurants on the block a couple of times. El Ranchito beats it's neighbor hands down. The atmosphere is diner style and the food was great both times for me. The salsa is hand chopped and a little juicy and chunky and the dinners are generous portions and extremely good. If you haven't, you should try... More

My husband and I just moved here from Michigan. We were low on funds and we both LOVE Mexican food. We couldn't decide if we wanted to go to Amigos or this place. Im glad that we chose el ranchito. I ordered the California burrito and my husband got tamales. My picky eater,(she's 2) will rarely eat from a restaurant,... More
