What an Express Lunch it was

Ordered the 4.99 express lunch of taco rice and beans. Had a choice of several items. In about 4 minutes the plate was sitting in front of me hot and good. The service was good with a quick drink refill. Busy at lunchtime but that was still good service. Watch the parking lot as it is very busy... read more

Everything about the restaurant was great. The atmosphere, the happily-busy wait staff, the food, oh my, the food! I loved the shrimp cocktail for an appetizer, and Paella for entrée. Very well done! I will be a frequent visitor.

New in town and stopped at El Rancherito for an early supper. Service was good, food arrived quickly. Nothing special, just your typical American Mexican restaurant. had Carnitas and a margarita. Both were OK, but nothing special. I've had carnitas in probably 30 different restaurants in half a dozen different states because if a mexican restaurant can't handle carnitas, they... More

Very good Mexican food with reasonable prices and fast service. My favorite is the chicken fajita taco salad. When we went it was packed and got a table quickly. The food came out fast and was very good.

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
