My wife and I had dinner here last night. We were seated right away and almost as soon as we were seated, waiter greeted us with complimentary chips and salsa.

Best Mexican food around. I have travelled to many states too and there are very few that come close to this restaurant. I was concerned when the former company, El Ranchero closed it's doors because their food was awesome but this seems to be the same place, just a different name. Real Mexican food, great taste, good prices, good service.

I was visiting a friend in West Virginia and ate here several times. The food was very good and very reasonably priced, as mentioned by other posters. Dinner combo with chile rellano, a tamale, and drink for $11. Chips and salsa were great! Highly reccomend if you like mexican food.

We eat here about once a month. When you arrive you are immediately serviced tortilla chips and salsa and drink orders are taken. Service is fast and food arrives hot and sizzling. I especially recommend the fajitas.

Put down your phone and wait on the customer! Walked out! I know 3:30 in afternoon is your slow time, sorry to bother you! We used to really like this place, but not so sure we will come back!
