Surprisingly Good!

We were pleasantly pleased with our experience here! We had shrimp fajitas for 2 and there were plenty of shrimp on the plate [WOW]. Perhaps, cooked a little more than we would like, but VERY TASTY! Everything was good, the tomatoes, onions and peppers. The service was very good and the prices... read more

Just left this place, we arrived at 730 on a Saturday night. Not very busy at all. Service was a bit slow. When our waitress finally arrived, she was very nice & apologetic. Said the host didn't tell her we had been seated. Food arrived pretty darn fast. The next time we saw our waitress was when we were done... More

Expecting a little more upscale decor, menu and service, it was somewhat disappointing - a solid average. On the other hand, prices were average, too, so it was balanced in that regard. We had standard fare (burrito, beans, rice, taco salad) and all were on the bland side, and the hot sauce was too thin to be called salsa and... More

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
