It seems that whatever I order, it really doesn't taste very good. It's not really TexMex and it's not really authentic Mexican. It's somewhere in between. This restaurant is very popular with the locals, but it just isn't the food I like. I sure miss the Blue Iguana.

Typical Mexican fare. The food was hot and plentiful and the waiter was helpful. We have been here before with friends and family and will continue to come back.

Ok, I love this restaurant! It's by far the best anywhere around the magnolia area. The pork fajitas r just awsome! It's such a happy environment to eat. ALWAYS a treat. We will be returning again and again!!!

If you have not been to Rancho lately, you must make a trip soon. We hate the pleasure of celebrating Valentine's Day and really enjoyed the food and drinks!

This was beautiful! Cheerful decor and great food. We had beef and chicken fajitas for one which we shared with a chile relleno on the side. The poblano relleno was stuffed with ground beef. We could not eat another bite. Had two margaritas to start. The total bill was $33. When we left, there was a huge group waiting to... More

Greeted by hostess that was almost rude. Showed us to a table without saying a word. We went about 2:30 PM, so it was not busy and there were only a few other diners. Food was average.

We have had nothing but excellent food and service. The only thing is the noise level. Being that it is concrete structure and floors voices travel easily. I've had difficulty hearing my husband across the table. We usually can go early enough to get seated in a smaller area with 6 or so tables and the noise is manageable.

We stopped by here after church. The place was busy but the service was awesome. Our tea glasses were never empty. The food was ok it was a little bland for me I had the tacos. My husband had the flauts which he chose fajita beef instead of the shredded chicken and the charge for that was an extra 2.99.... More
