This was out first time in Sioux City, IA and our GREAT hotel staff at Holiday Inn Express recommended this restaurant. The food was hot and delicious! We were seated and greeted by our server quickly. My only complaint would be that after our food was delivered our server never came back to check on us or our drinks! Fortunately... More

I am a fan of this place and have decided to keep myself happy, I will not return here if I am a part of a large group. Upon arriving at the restaurant, the first 3 of us mentioned we would have a group of 10. We stated that people would arrive at various intervals and that once people arrived,... More

We just finished our meal- the food was plentiful, very tasty, and our server was a hard-working young lady. My husband had the fajitas supreme, I had the chile verde, plus 2 beers our bill was $35. If we weren't traveling, I could have brought home the rest of my food for tomorrow's lunch. We will definitely stop again the... More

I am torn as I write this review. El Ranchito is one of my favorite places to eat because of the food. My friends, family and I go back each time because of the food and because we hope the service will be okay. El Ranchito is authentic Mexican so one should not expect it to be like Taco Johns...

After reading these good reivews we were looking forward to dinner. The service was NOT great--indeed it was cold and unfriendly. Others (locals and regulars I supose) were waited on and served much more quickly than we were. The food was too spicy for me.

This is our family favorite. We've tried just about every Mexican place in South Sioux City and this is by far the best. We have tried almost everything on the menu and have never been disappointed. We try and make it a weekly event.
