Overall the service was acceptable but not as good as it could have been. Food was hot and tasted great. Not as authentic as some other restaurants I've been to but it was tasty. My mother ordered a Long Island Iced Tea which came with orange juice and in her words was more like a "screwdriver" drink. I specifically ordered... More

This is one of the best Mexican restaurants in the area. I highly recommend their fajitas. Their cheese dip is delicious and their small size is huge. Their chips and salsa are great. Daily drink and food specials. A must go to!

This is a very good Mexican restaurant. What I like is on Sunday they have 12 or so specials that are reasonable and good.

This was one of my favorite restaurants until my last visit. I always order the chicken enchiladas and did on this visit as well. About a quarter way through the first one I felt something odd in my mouth...it turned out to be piece of a plate. It was bigger than a nickel but smaller than a quarter. We immediately... More

This Mexican restaurant is a treat in Jacksonville, IL. Enjoy the fabulous murals of Hispanic culture while you dine on deliciously prepared dishes. My husband and I enjoyed the chicken fajitas and beef fajitas and had to take half of it home for the next day's lunch. The hearty portions were well-seasoned and of course the nachos and salsa are... More

I am an international student at college in Illinois and basically I am alive and healthy today because of the Food at Los Rancheros. A little exaggeration but still true. In terms of their service I want to believe that because they were making their food so heavenly it took a little longer than expected but overall their service is... More

My wife and I were traveling through the area on business and decided to eat local. Based on reviews we choose Los Rancheros. The decor is the exact same style as many "Mexican" restaurants that have sprung up over the last few years. Yes, the staff does appear to be of Mexican decent. They do have all the common items...
