Great spot

Loved the patio and our server had great recommendations. Their salsa is really good and the lunch specials hit the spot.

Very good service. Attentive. We each had "make your own combo". First, the beans were one of the best I've eaten. The rice was tasty & moist. But the beef burrito...oh my was it was wonderful.

Nice restaurant, service was not top notch. Food was good and it was hot. Service was a little slow for a weed day afternoon.

La Rancherita is located next to Best Buy on the exterior of the Crabtree Mall. We showed up at the end of the lunch hour. We were greeted and seated upon entering the restaurant. Staff was friendly, and the restaurant appeared clean. They immediately brought us chips and salsa. The salsa was very hot, so I decided to order some... More

My companion and I were pleased with the menu selections and found them to be good variations of the traditional Tex-Mex fare one expects east of the Mississippi. Fresh veggies complimented our meals and the margaritas were cold.

Nothing grand about it, but was not bad in a pinch. The chicken was a little bland but the rest of the food was tasty. They make pretty good drinks too.

Enjoyed dinner while in town for dinner! Love the fresh guacmole and queso dip! Food taste very fresh and was out quickly. Only issue was with margarita but, owner took it off and replaced it with full understanding. Will be back for sure!

Ate here with a group of 24. It was a Saturday night so they had their typical weekend crowd and were able to attend to us and another large group. The restaurant worked very hard at making us happy by keeping our large group together. The food was standard Mexican food found in the U.S. but excellently prepared and delicious.... More
