Breakfast Burrito

This is one of the best breakfast burritos around. The salsa bar well stocked. The nice staff and the food is made fresh.

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.

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
