My fiancé and I tried the carne asada and carnitas burritos, and we were both amazed how tasty the meat was. Sopes are very good as well, they taste homemade (yes! just like my moms home cooking). Give this place a try, you won't be disappointed.

Burrito was a little small and didnt have enough meat. Clean place though and food was good. This place is better than the other taco shops in hemet, like la cabana. Its even better than santanas. Will be back to try other menu items..

We eat here at least twice a month, sometimes more. The food is always consistent and my family all have their favorites. I love the 2 shredded beef taco combo, the wife likes the shredded beef taco and cheese enchilada combo and our son loves the carne asada fries. The Chicken Flautas are excellent. I have never had anything I... More

I live in Texas and eat Tex-Mex at least twice a week and have a more than a dozen decent restaurants to choose from without going to a chain shop. But when visiting relatives in Hemet I have to hit the El Ranchito (which we just call "The Taco Shop") at least once, and sometimes more than that. I have... More

I have now been to Ell Ranchito Taco shop twice and I have enjoyed the food. Today I got chicken roll taco and chive both were awesome. The price was a little high but yet the food was great. The reason why I am rating 4 stars is mainly for the price otherwise I would have given them 5.

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.
