Good food & nice atmosphere

This is great Mexican food at a fair price. Plan a big plateful! This place is very nice and I like the decor.

We were attending a funeral and needed a place close to the funeral home to have supper. The locations was great, but the food was not. We waited quite a long time for our food and there was nothing special about it. We did get more chips and salsa, but only because we asked, not because someone was watching to... More

I will make this short and sweet...we had to wait 10 minutes for our table when the restaurant was nearly empty, we asked for refills on our salsa at least 3 times before we got it, the food portions were very small and the flavor was very disappointing (they didn't even have hot sauce on the table), getting refills for...

My husband, son (2.5 yrs), and myself went here twice in a row. The first night was a Thursday with a co-worker of my husband. The service was good, food tasted good, and we mostly enjoyed our meal. I will say that they had a young man playing older music and while it was night we were in the same... More

We have went to Los Rancheros for years. They keep changing their menu and raising their prices all while making the portions smaller. Went last week and was very disappointed! My food was interesting but not good. My friends ordered the beef fajita. There was hardly any beef it was mostly green peppers. Even the salsa was extremely bland. We... More

The food at this restaurant is consistently the very best Mexican I have had! The service needs help though. Thank heavens there is never an issue with our food because you'd be hard pressed to find a waiter to fix it. Our waiter this time took our order, didn't day more than 6 words and left never to be seen... More

had lunch at this place, the food was great, staff was great, But the bathroom was the BEST. You will need to see the bathroom, it was the cleanest and the walls had the best wood grain paint

I love bringing people here because the food is great. The service is speedy and friendly. The in house made hot sauce is the best I have ever tasted, (only try if you like some heat). I'll continue to come back.
