The food was just ok and they give you plenty. The nacho's and salsa were good but skip the margarita. The margarita was mostly sour mix and was really terrible.

The food was tasteless. The presentation was poor. The rose wine was a kind of strange red color. In this whole area we never did have diner so disappointing .

Since we were raised in Los Angeles, Mexican food has been an important part of our "comfort food" list. We've recently moved to Inverness, FL and El Ranchito has been the only Mexican restaurant we've found. Went to dinner on a Tuesday night and it was doing a good business. They only have wine and beer, so my husband and... More

Fast service and excellent food. We have eaten there many times and also gotten takeout. Their guacamole is the best. Not fancy but has a great clientele of local people.

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
