Great food but staff seems uninterested

My boyfriend and I go to this restaurant a lot, well a lot for us because we mainly cook, but we love the food and the new location is great. I do, however, have an issue with the staff who sits in the back corner, on their phones and throw their heads back in disgust when they get a table.... read more

We visited Rancheros several years ago and never returned because we found it to be vastly inferior to numerous other Mexican food outlets in the area. But when the restaurant moved into a new attractive facility, we thought they might be under new management or somehow now had their act together. So we gave it another try. Mistake! Still has...

My family and I ate at this restaurant for the first, and most probably, the last time, tonight. I didn't care for their salsa which is watery and weak. My tortilla soup was OK, but did not really have the tortilla soup taste. Hubby and kids complained that their food tasted like it was microwaved, the beans tasted "weird" and... More

This place usually has good food and the staff are pretty nice. But when I went to grab a chip, a cockroach was crawling right by my hand on the table. My co workers swatted it off the table and a waiter just casually killed it on the floor with a sugar packet. No joke. We told our waiter when... More

Since we had not been in the new Resturant, we thought we would try it. Well needless to say, we waited 10 minutes for our chips, salsa and drinks. We finally got up and left, If they were real busy I could understand, there was not more than 20 people in the whole place. WE WILL NOT GO BACK. We... More

Service was great, good size menu, good margaritas. Warm but weak salsa. Queso but no meat included. Fast service. Ordered steak. Was tough and not very warm. Mexican coffee was very good. Made for me although not on the menu. Clean and not noisy restaurant. Large parking lot. Will return.

The food was just OK....standard Mexican fare in the area, better than a few but not as good as most. They are, however, a bit pricier than most. The horrible service was the killer. Staff allowed two young (probably between 2 and 4 years old) children to run screaming around the restaurant, bumping people (including me and my dining companions),... More

The food was more or less average Mexican. Not particularly bad, but not good either. They did not have enough staff on-hand for the crowd, so service was mediocre as well.

Not an easy review to complete, pretty basic set up, ok to good service, the main courses were ok but the tortilla soup was like no other one I have had in either side of the border and not Ina good way, on top of that it was almost cold. The ranchero beans, also cold. It was their anniversary, so... More
