Good Salsa

I was in town for business and needed a quick bite and found this place just a few blocks from my hotel. The chips and salsa were excellent and I felt welcome as soon as I walked in. I ordered the burrito enorme and it was really good. The burrito had steak and shrimp in it and I liked how... read more

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

Was in town on business and stopped by for lunch. Actually came back for dinner because it was fantastic! The service was awesome, everyone was super friendly and the service was very quick. The food was great. Beyond standard, very tasty. The best part wasn't the quick service and great food, the prices are so affordable. For 2 people at... More

We just recently realized that La Rancherita has opened a restaurant on Hillsboro St on NC State's campus. We weren't really sure what to expect as we have not ever visited any of the other La Rancherita locations in Raleigh. The atmosphere is really neat, the service is really good, and the food is very authentic. We asked for the... More

I gave this review an extra star because the waitstaff was very friendly and attentive. The atmosphere is also very nice. That said, I'm not quite sure what all the raves are about. Perhaps the kitchen was having an off day, because I ordered the veggie quesadilla and it was possibly not only the worst quesadilla I've ever had, but... More

Friendly, fast service, great salsa with fresh, deep flavor and zing. Nice strong Margaritas with decent house Tequila. The fish tacos were excellent served "street-style" with corn tortilla and sides. We have been several times and the quality is steady and reliable, the portions are generous and the prices reasonable. Over all surprisingly better than the average Amer-mexican fare. We... More

Ok, just about the best salsa you will taste in your life is served here. The chips are fine. Take the old Chile Bomba, remove alot of posters from the walls, basically clean it up a bit, and rename as La Rancherita. The menu is about the same. It is better than average for a Mexican resturaunt. it is certainly... More
