The best fish tacos, hands down. The flautas are yummy too! Service is friendly. Everything is made to order, so be prepared for a little wait.

I kept telling myself that on one of my trips to California I'd be bold enough to try my first bowl of menudo. Well, that time finally arrived last night! As people know out here, menudo is typically only available on weekends. Combined with the wrong timing of my trips along with family members who seemed disgusted with the idea... More

I tried many Mexican restaurants in Hemet and by far El Ranchito was the best. I love almost everything on the menu!

I lived in Hemet for over eight years and this was my favorite taco shop. Their food is fresh. Preparation and taste are always consistent. They have the best shredded beef tacos and super fries!! My last visit, I was only in Hemet 27 hours and I ate there twice. Very reasonably priced.

I love tacos, so I always make a point of making at least one trip to El Ranchito when I visit family in Hemet (from Oregon). All the fillings I have tried were excellent, especially the fish and carnitas. They also have awesome guacamole. Everything is very reasonably priced and there are daily specials. Finally, the owners are sincerely nice... More

This place is great if you plan on having one of those nights where you are going to be drinking a few beers and watching a boxing match. Food is great, greasy Mexican food, that really goes well with drinking

I found this taco shop on Florida Ave because of it's listing on Trip Advisor. This unassuming spot serves some great, authentic tacos. For $1.59 I enjoyed a great lengua (tongue) taco which could match up with the best. Cabeza (head) taco was good, but nothing out of the ordinary. For a few pennies more, try the fish taco. The...

This will be a short review. Be warned they accept cash only! My usual meal is the Flauta Special. This place is my all-time favorite when it comes to flautas. They have a good salsa bar as well, and it looks cleaner than most taco shops.

El Ranchito Taco Shops (several family owned locations in So CA - all the same!) are what legends are made of! Casual walk up counter & well stocked self serve salsa bar, with comfortable seating, fast food but with a sit down meal authenticity. This is REAL Mexican food! You ask all the Hispanics in Hemet-San Jacinto (or any place... More
