This small Mexican Restaurant is in a strip mall. It is not fancy but the food is excellent. We enjoyed a great lunch. Of course we started off with the Cheese dip. White melted yummy cheese. I had the Quesadilla at $5.75 (Lunch price.) Even though this is a chicken quesadilla and there are no substitutions I asked for vegetable... More

Food is always good quality, good quantity, and well prepared. Service is friendly and excellent. Atmosphere is wonderful and the Margaritas are really good. We eat there often. One of our favorite spots to eat.

We have eaten here many times. Most of the time, the food is pretty good, but once or twice, it just wasn't that great. If you want to travel about 20 miles, go to Ocala for Mexican food.

I love El Ranchito. I highly recommend the fajitas, fajita casadillas, and the enchiladas supreme. It is a small place but it's very clean and the servers are very friendly. There can be a bit of a language barrier if you don't speak Spanish but the menus are easy to order from with corresponding numbers. The prices are very inexpensive... More

The food is good and portions are adequate, the service is always with a smile. The carry out order is always correct and on time. Nothing special but always good.

Ok, I like Tex-Mex. I like corn tortillas with a nice salsa before and during the meal-- and I like the atmosphere of a small, cozy, family-owned Tex-Mex restaurant. We came here on a whim-- my wife was hungry for Tex-Mex-- and weren't disappointed. I would have rated it 4.5 stars-- not QUITE a 5 out of 5-- but I... More

I finally tried El Ranchito. disappointing at best. Crowded seating, Mexican décor bland food. I played it safe and went with the tacos, two on soft flour shells one hard. The soft tacos seemed like eating crushed big mac's on white bread. Even with hot sauce they did not taste Mexican. The restaurant was crowded, but their prices are very... More

This is a local Mexican food eatery in our small community. It is just ok, not really great....but I must admit that I am spoiled. I moved her from KY a few months ago and we had a GREAT Mexican restaurant in our town...missing them...the servers here are not very friendly either! They could do better!

Having moved here from New Hampshire our party thought it funny that there is only one "Mexican" restaurant in Inverness. Anyway, we tried it one night since we needed our Mexican food fix. Well I have to say I don't think I've EVER had food so bad. I'm sure that the owners Mothers never cooked such a poor excuse for... More
