The oldest Mexican Restaurant in Seguin. It's only competition in Seguin dating back to the late 50's was El Apache Restaurant (now defunct). El Ranchito moved to Hiway Alternate 90 in the late Sixties where the basement featured a full service bar and local bands playing everything from Country to Funk to Tejano (the owner Danny de la Garza is...

This place has been in Seguin for more than 60 years. It has moved from a primitive small building in the 50's to a very impressive place today. The food has always been the best Mexican food I've ever tasted. When I moved from Seguin I got withdrawls from not being able to eat it.

I do not understand why people ever go to El Ranchito. The decor is nice, it is clean, and the staff and Margaritas are very good. But the food is HORRIBLE. Even the salsa served with chips - how hard is it to make a good salsa? Theirs is so oniony with no other flavor. Just onion and tomato. Tired... More

My parents went on their first date at the original El Ranchito location. People wondered if they would make it when they went upscale into their new location years ago. Of course, they made it. They make the best Tex-Mex in Texas. Most of the time when I return to something that I had great memories of as a child,... More

If you ask me, this place is for people who think this is real Mexican or even real tex-mex. Enchilada sauce taste just like out of the can and same for tortillas out of the bag. The only thing I enjoyed were the chips and salsa.

We've had lunch here three times traveling through town, and it always has been a pleasant experience. The menu has plenty of variety, the prices are good, the service has always been very attentive. It's very clean, including the restrooms, and has a nice atmosphere. It's our go-to lunch place in Seguin.
