Great food!

One of our favorites for mexican food! I love their chicken enchilada suiza! Their drinks are generous and tasty, the service is great and do believe it is family owned. We try to always support locally owned family businesses and this place aims to please!

When we crave sonoran style (heavy cheese, beans rice) Mexican food we go to El Rancho Viejo. Standard entrees are always satisfying and enjoyable. The red and green salsa is really good as are the big margarita's.

my family and I have been going to this place for about 15 years. It is a wonderful, family owned place. The atmosphere is friendly and authentic to a mexican experience. There is something for everyone to enjoy, even if you don't like mexican food. (they make an awesome mushroom burger!) and it's huge. I take half home and make... More

Every trip to enjoy Mexican Food is better then the last visit. Great staff, a boatload of selections and reasonable prices. This should be your destination for Mexican meal in the greater Vancouver/Battleground area.

Typical Mexican fare, but it is good and and a reasonable price. There are a lot of cruddy Mexican restaurants in the Clark County area, so this one stands out as a star. Wife and I eat here regularly.

This is our go to place for great Mexican food. We have been coming here for years. The food is always good. Not only is the service good the staff is exceptional friendly. Ask for the pico with the chips and salsa.
