I make a trip to Rancho Viejo at least twice a month if not more. The staff at this restaurant are friendly, fast & extremely efficient. The food cooked and served to perfection. Large portions on very HOT plates so be careful. Fun place to take friends and family. Try Rancho Viejo...you won't be disappointed.

Their food was greasy. They handed me my tacos and I couldn't even pick one up because it was already soggy and falling apart. It was disgusting. Their beans also tasted like they were from a can, which is still better than beans with a ton of lard in them. My boyfriends meal was bland and didn't have much to... More

We arrived at 5:00 p.m. on Friday for an early dinner. There was salad on the floor under the table where we sat. Not sure why it wasn't cleaned up considering the place was dead. Food came out cold and I received the same corn tortillas that I buy at the store for my meal. I like those, but I... More

There are many Mexican restaurants between Crescent City and Brookings, but what sets Rancho Viejo apart is their Mexican Seafood. Great service and good prices.

We've eaten at Rancho Viejo about 10 times in the last few years. The food has usually been good and the service average. Last weekend, however, the service was absolutely horrible - actually almost non-existent! We were seated pretty quickly in one of their booths, not far from the entrance, below a very hot and bright hanging light fixture. The... More

My wife and I went there for lunch. I had the Taco & Enchilada meal. I usually do not care for the refried beans but here they are fantastic. I have had the Chili Relenos here before and it was excellent. My wife had the Combo Appetizer, we should have split it as it was lots of good food. The... More

Due to some mechanical problems, we pulled into Brookings fairly late in the evening, and by the time we got our RV unhitched, it was about 9:30 pm. This place was open :-) I had a chicken enchilada a la crema which was quite good. My husband had the Patron steak which he said was just okay. Portions were largish.... More

We dine here regularly and were delighted when the owners remodeled the inside. It is so much nicer now. The food is also good although last time we went they were understaffed and the food was not served hot. :(

Lunch was excellent today! Note the age of the negative reviews and take that in account when you look at this place. I just had some of the best mole chicken enchiladas I've had. Two thumbs up!!
