This restaurant has good food at a reasonable price and the service is very fast. If you are not very hungry you can order from the children's menu at $1.00 more. Plenty for me. The frozen margaritas are my favorite.

The best thing about this restaurant are the cheesecake chimichangas, creamy cheesecake filling in a flour tortilla and then deep fried. I also like the cheese quesadillas and chicken soft tacos. The portions are filling so if you want desert I would suggest ordering one or two items from the appetizer menu to save room, rather than a full meal.

You will not be disappointed in the food or service here. My favorite is nacho fajitas they are amazing. Great atmosphere and the margaritas are very good too. The food comes out almost as fast as a fast food restaurant.

I had a blast at El Rancherito! The children loved the balls, while us adults enjoyed the alochols. Jimmy & Bimmy were so darn cute when they drank their black tequila. El Rancherito has changed my life. The sweet waitress we had gave birth in the coat room & oh it was just a pleasurable experience! I couldn't relive religion... More

We were racing through traffic at blistering speeds. I turned to my wife in dismay as I could clearly see that she was just moments away from giving birth to our new son. Though famished, I knew this was not the time. With one hand on the wheel, I furiously munched on my gasoline receipts with a second course of... More

While travelling through Quincy recently we decided to stop at El Rancherito for an early dinner. At first, we weren't sure that was such a good thing. The joint is on a main street, but it's hidden behind an auto parts store and the parking lot was nearly empty. Over the years we've found that a full parking lot is... More

El Rancherito was good but it was just like every other Mexican restaurant in the area. When we got in to sit down, the waiter very hastily took our order and our food was brought out within two minutes. This just lets me know that everything is pre-made and most likely in a large pot. I would go back again... More

Went there and the service was terrible. The food was very blah! The other two, especially Maya, are MUCH MUCH better

For the midwest this is a great Mexican eating joint. I love their food although it has been "Americantized". You get ALOT of great food for a reasonable price. Staff is great.
