Typical Mexican Restaurant

The margaritas were delicious but the food was just ok. Service was a bit slow for being one of two tables in the restaurant.

Never been to a mexican place with crab Rangoon, cheese sticks AND a shrimp cocktail, along with bean "deep" on the menu, but it worked out ok. Staff was very nice and dealt well with our loud large group. Everyone seemed to enjoy their meals and especially their margaritas, but don't ask for a large unless you mean it ;).

We visited on the $1 taco night, and both ordered soft shell tacos. I do not think there were any tomatoes in them. Not a lot of flavor, just a cheap filler. Taco Bell is better.

Just a little off, I ordered a taco salad and it was swimming in cheese sauce and sour cream. I think that is what it was anyway. It honestly looked like soup.

Great food at a good price and excellent service! Went on a girls trip to Hermann, and we were given the royal treatment! Highly recommend! They were even nice enough to ship back a jacket to me that I had left behind in the restaurant, such wonderful nice people!

Keep your perspective in check when dinning at this restaurant. it is not your fancy suburban tex/mex joint. This is definitely a local dive. Food is solid, place is clean...but it's not On The Border!

Not much is open past 8pm in Hermann. We headed to the restaurant and we're surprised by the decor. Enclosed vestibule area which opened into the smoking section of a bar. The smoking section is up a step and inside. Workers don't wear shirts with the restaurant name. Food was great and plentiful. Guacamole was a light color and more... More

Finding a mexican restaurant in a small town like Hermann was a big surprise and the food was on par as well. Nothing exceptional that you will remember for a long time but not to bad either. They have a lunch buffet which one can go for or a la carte. Depends on your hunger level :) Food Taste &... More

The chips were stale and greasy. The food wasn't anything special. The atmosphere was dingy and outdated. The service was good.

Most people come to Hermann for the German atmosphere. However, if you're a local you don't give two cents about German and all you want is good food at a decent price. El Ranchito has a crummy building. Kind of a real dump that will flood in the event of a flash flood on Frene Creek. However, the food is... More
