My wife and I went here for the first time and we tried a cupachanna which was so large we couldn't even finish half of it between both of us. We ordered the green chile verde burrito and we had to take three fourths of this burrito home because it was so large and it tasted great . The chips... More

This is one of the best Mexican places in the Inland Empire, but on a Friday night with a big crowd it is far too noisy. Try it on Sunday or midweek. It has great food and large portions. You will never leave hungry and for those who like margaritas they have every size and kind you can want. Some... More

I downloaded a voucher for a free guacamole appetizer at www.getfreeticketshere.com Really good, made fresh at your table. Almost a meal in itself

My friends had told tales of Perico's Cadillac Margarita, and so I had to try one. I must say, it was fantastic, and very potent. I also enjoyed a delicious and perfectly seasoned michelada, too. My steak fajitas were served sizzling and tender, grilled to perfection. We enjoyed a delicious meal and I highly recommend El Perico Ranchero.

This is a great restaurant that offers good food and service. The prices are reasonable and there's a large menu to choose from. Another treat is their guacamole which is made table-side to your likings. Better yet, if you have their coupon for the guacamole, it's FREE!!!

This a terrific family run establishment; the food is outstanding (and I've tried many entree's), they make your guacamole table side so you can choose what you want, also the cadillac margaritas are the absolute best. Service is very very friendly! This is our local weekly spot so we are basically regulars. Good thing is if you have a layover... More

My favorite Mexican Rest. In Upland. The service is friendly, the food is good, and there is plenty of it. I especially enjoy the margarita's and the guacamole made at your table.
