El Ranchito - August 2015

Nice spot, looks like a big city restaurant walking in. My bride liked her combo plate, enchilada & a taco and not being to hungry I had a bowl of tortilla soup. It was all fine, we liked the salsa and dumped it on most everything. Speaking of my bride she is in a wheelchair, it was not hard... read more

A family-owned restaurant that recently celebrated its 75th anniversary. That sums it up. You don't stay open 75 years without being consistently good.

Went here strictly based upon TripAdvisor reviews, as the number 2 restaurant (Su Casa) in all of Seguin did not have a single car in the parking lot, either closed or food was not to be had. This restaurant had several cars parked, as the front parking lot was 2/3 full, so I decided to stay. I was seated in... More

The consistency of quality Mexican food absolutely has me impressed. El Ranchito has been "my" place since the 1960's and my favorite dish No. 17 on the menu is still as good as it always was. The chips are fresh, the salsa spicy and the margaritas unforgettable.

Been eating here mywhole life, whenever I visit Seguin. It is good, solid TexMex. It can get crowded, but it's a big place. The owners are very nice.

My husband and I have been to this eatery half a dozen times in the recent past, and really enjoyed the fresh food and homemade tortillas. On Saturday, a friend and I went for lunch and I had my usual beef fajita salad, she had a taco salad. The beef fajita meat was not nearly as tender as in the... More

My family and I used to come here quite a bit. Then after one stop it seemed that the food changed. Instead of using cheddar in a taco, or to smother an enchilada, queso was used. It almost tasted like what I could have made at home out of Velveeta and Rotel. The chicken in the enchilada was like canned... More

The salsa tasted just like homemade salsa and was by far the best tasting salsa I have had. Mike the server was great and did an excellent job. The management will make what you want as well in order to cater to your specific taste or wants. Portions are quite large too. They do not skimp on the meat! They... More

I had New York Strip Steak instead of Mexican because that was their luncheon special. Service was excellent. The food was great.
