Nice find

After shopping at Bass Pro Shop we decided to try El Rancho Mexican Restaurant which is located across the parking lot. It had traditional Mexican style in the restaurant and was homey. The Pollo Fundido was excellent, the Chimi platter was equally so, and the margaritas were great! Every day from... read more

Reason that I'm not impressed: - the majority of the food taste like a frozen microwave dinner - Margaritas are bland - happy hour isn't convenient - enchiladas are dry I have eaten here lots of times and haven't come across something that I like yet; and Mexican food is my favorite. Even though the food is not good in... More

This is the best Mexican food I have eaten in Louisiana. I highly recommend this place if you like real Mexican food and not Taco Bell.

This is my favorite Mexican restaurant. The amount of food you get for the price is great! The chicken fajita quesadillas are AWESOME!! My son loves the chimichangas! Me and my husband split the fiesta platter($10.99) Their margaritas are good too! And the service is always good. I just think the place could use a little dusting!

Enjoyed a delightful "last supper" before our daughter and son-in-law delivered their beautiful daughter. Every item was excellent - fajitas, enchiladas, veggie plate and more. Service was gracious and attentive. Unexpected charm in this strip mall restaurant.

This is by far my favorite place to get a bite of mexican in Denham. Service is always fast, and food is fresh every time. You have to try this place!

There is always 2 for 1 specials on all drinks and the food is very good. The combo platters are great and not very expensive. We get coupons a lot so we go often. I still like La Caretta better though.
