No, no, no. Decided on Mexican for dinner, one of our favs. The restaurant was clean and there was no wait. That's about where the good stopped. The chips and salsa tasted like Tostito's. That's fine and all if I'm at home, not what you expect from a Mexican restaurant. I ordered the fajita wrap, it came with rice and... More

For many years my family has enjoyed the wonderful food, and friendly service at El Rancho. We have shared family photos with Norma (our favorite waitress) and honestly feel like the staff there are part of our extended family. We have enjoyed many hours of eating and visting and I highly recommend that when you are in the area you... More

I always enjoy this out of the way place when I eat out. It is reasonable and the beer is cheap. The food is filling.

I've been frequenting El Rancho for quite a while, on and off, and was quite pleased to see that they had updated the interior by renovating. They are obviously trying to compete with the Los Toltecas chain with the style. El Rancho has always had great service in my opinion. Very friendly and never leaving you waiting. So, this isn't...

The atmosphere is just so-so, the place feels like a re-purposed meeting hall. The food was just ok. My refried beans were soupy, and the entree was not very flavorful. The margarita was not good. If you must have Mexican, it's acceptable, but that's about all.

Needs new management and new food. The salsa was bland and everything else was mushy and not to par.

Tucked away in a small strip mall in Purcellville, you might overlook El Rancho Plus. That would be a grave mistake. This family run restaurant is our favorite spot for simple, freshly prepared south of the border fare. While they are open evenings and for breakfast on the weekends, we've only been there for lunches. There are two family friendly,... More

We have been here 3 times in the past month. Food is consistent, it's good. I wish there was a little less "fried" type items and salads with dressing and cheese in shells, but that's me. Margaritas are good, better than some other local places, not as good as others. Good for purcellville. I do recommend and I will go... More
