This is the BEST Mexican restaurant we have ever eaten in. The service and food were excellent!! We had the Parrillada and it was WONDERFUL!! We ate until I thought we would explode--then--took home enough for lunch the next day. We will definitely eat there again when we go back to Mississippi.

Have been here several times and have always had good food. One of the best Mexican places around. Very busy after 6:00 pm on most days and on the weekends they are busy in the evenings. Some of the waiters are better than others but most have always brought the food promptly and kept the drink glasses full. If you... More

I asked for an extra plate and tried asking for another item and was totally ignored . I ordered the chicken Fajita. You are only served 3 tortillas with your meal, which is... More

My husband and I like El Ranchito for the tasty (and generous) fajitas for two, friendly staff, and great prices.

I have eaten at this restaurant several times and found the food to be mediocre at best. Yes, the service is pretty good and yes the food is served quickly, but it just is not the best tasting. However, the chips and salsa are excellent. There are several other Mexican restaurants in Madison and I would recommend visiting them first.

Love it. Love the food. Love the servers. Love the family friendly atmosphere. PS really love take out from here. You can call in your order and it will be ready for pick up in 20 minutes! And they give you a huge bag of chips too.

We loved this place. Really good service. We went for dinner and the restaurant was packed. We thought it would take forever for them to bring our food but we were surprised. Our food came soon after we ordered and we loved it.

Eat there quite often. Very good food, excellent service. Fun place and friendly people. They are always busy on weekends but they do an excellent job turning the tables over quickly.

Went with a large group after church. Staff was friendly and prompt with service. Place was packed with church folks. My wife and I split the chicken fajita and it was plenty for both of us. Place has good food, but nothing to write home about. Our meal cost around $12.00
