Good Mexican food, 1/2 pitcher of Margaritas is good and is a perfect amount for two. Friendly and fast service. Always a wait on Friday and Saturday nights.

We order for pickup here a lot but whenever we go in, as we did tonight, it reminds me what a friendly decent place it is. We thoroughly enjoy the food, the service is great and its just a comfortable place to eat. I highly recommend El Ranchero.

Staff is always friendly, food is average but the value is GREAT! A family of 4 can easily eat for under $30. We go several times a week! Their margaritas are great BTW

Had beef nachos and carnitas, both of which were pretty bad. Nacho meet tasted worse than hamburger helper. Carnitas were tough pieces of meat which you needed to cut with knife instead of falling apart and almost no flavor. Service slow but friendly enough

I used to live in San Diego, and this place is the closest to that SoCal type of Mexican food and setting in the area! Food is excellent, and well priced. Staff is very good. Margaritas are the best around. Give it try you will be pleasantly surprised!
