Average place

If you look for a good price and big plates come here. Don't expect amazing flavors, remeber you pay for what you get... Fajitas are good as well as cosutmer service. Chips and salsa for free is a plus.

We tried this after they finally moved to their new place. Mainly just to give it a look but we found the food much better than when we stopped going there a few years ago. Enchiladas, chimichangas, burritos and tamales are all quite good. The magaritas are pretty average but if you order on the rocks with a premium tequila... More

This place is horrible! Menu's were filthy, food was still frozen, they obviously didn't put it in the microwave long enough. The guacamole was not even real it was some green sauce. The plastic glasses were chipped - thank goodness we had straws! Very overpriced for the quality you get. It needs to be $1.99 but that might still be... More

What a disappointment . After a year of watching the new building take over what was a beautifully wooded tract, then to see its just a new location for an existing restaurant . So we take a chance , thinking (hoping) they have new management along with the new digs. Nope, same old tired staff & menu in a brand... More

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.... 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
