Food is terrible

My daughter & I dined at El Rancho. We love Mexican food but the food here was simply inedible. The chicken tacos, cheese enchiladas & even the margaritas were horrible. Stay away!

The food was good. Chips and salsa fresh. I ordered beef and nachos, made to order! Happy hour lime margarita was only $2. I think my server was playing a joke on me, however. I asked for a water and she bright me the entire pitcher with a straw????

I love the Ritas here, strong and tasty, the food is typical Mexican its ok... never had any bad food experiences or other negative incidents here, The salsa is good and spicy and they serve warm chips. I had their green chilli sauce for the first time over an enchilada it was ok...something different.

Our first bite was delicious, then the server brought a stack of extra napkins for the kids. When he set them down, many tiny roaches ran out all over the table. Infestation.

This place was a great find on our vacation! The food tasted great. The service was wonderful! The the prices was more then fair. I am glad we did not eat at a fast food place and call it good or eat at a casino off the beach. This was a great find!

I love El Rancho for two reasons. The first being that they make their own salsa each day and that salsa is delicious. The second being is that they have the best chicken chimichangas in the universe. Its a whole white chicken breast that is fried to perfection. The fajitas are good there too. The downside to El Rancho is... More

We had some friends want to go here & I'm not huge on Mexican food, but OMG I absolutely LOVED everything that they served us. We asked the waiter for recommendations & we couldn't have been happier with our choices. In fact, I tried a little bit of everyone's meal & loved everything I tried! I was pleasantly surprised and... More

It looks a little run down on the outside, but once you have the chips and salsa you know the food will be good. I had a burrito California, it was very tasty and so large I didn't want to eat it all but it was so good I finished it. Marco our waiter was very attentive, if I come... More

We stopped in for a quick lunch while on lunch break from a conference. Service was friendly and fast. We are not from the area and were hesitant from past reviews. The salsa was good, not too hot at all. We ordered a quesadilla and burrito. Both were good. The prices were reasonable.
