A charming restaurant with excellent food and service. There are so many choices on the menu that it can take a while to decide - they have something for everyone. In addition to a large selection of traditional meat dishes they also have a huge selection of vegetarian and vegan options. We ordered a combination - beef taco with cheese... More

Rancho's shows up on Vegan/Vegetarian searches as well as Farm to Table searches. We are trying to eat in a more healthy manner and patronize restaurants that support the local farmers and use their fresh, organically grown fruits and vegetables. Rancho's has two locations and although we're staying in Point Loma closer to the one in Ocean Beach, we opted... More

Parking is limited to the street so we found we had to drive around the block and walk to the location. No biggie, but worth noting. When we arrived we found ourselves as the only patrons in the quiet rustic restaurant. However, that soon changed and we people began to pour in for Saturday brunch. Each item was clearly marked...

We enjoyed our lunch at the Ranchos Cocina, which is in a small shopping area and surrounded by several other small restaurants, Ranchos' food was excellent as was the promptness of the service and the friendliness of the staff. If you want to support a small, locally owned business, be sure to visit this restaurant.

Discovered this place by accident, looked at the menu & went in. Lots of healthy meat-free and even vegan options and very reasonable prices. I got the healthy burrito, stuffed with rice, beans, lettuce, and guacamole. Served with great salsa, it was very tasty, healthy, and filling. Very much enjoyed the place and would gladly returned if found myself hungry... More

Rancho's has been my go-to, never-fail, veg-friendly mexican restaurant for the last nine years. They offer so much variety for vegetarians and vegans, while still offering plenty for omnivores. I've never really had a problem getting a table, but I know it's often a full house during weekend dinner hours. For me, they do potato rolled tacos right and their... More

My husband and I were hanging out in San Diego and went to Rancho's on the recommendation of a friend. I'm vegetarian, and although my husband is not, he loves good vegetarian and vegan food as well. They have a huge menu, that ranges from salads to burritos. My husband got a vegetarian carne asada burrito, that honestly frightened me... More

So I love to indulge in great food. No secret there. My wife likes to keep my waistline in check. The compromise is that we eat here from time to time. Deal. The food tastes good and happens to be on the healthy side. Chicken burrito with black beans and brown rice on a whole wheat tortilla made fresh, check.... More

Fresh ingredients and variety seem to be the key to Rancho's. What's great about this place is if you have a group trying to go out to lunch/dinner w/ very mixed palates, there are so many choices: poultry, meat, fish, lobster, vegetarian, vegan, bland, and spicy. And the price tag doesn't sting at the end of a meal, either. The... More

You'll feel like you're eating at a families own home with the superb wait service, high quality food, reasonable prices and awesome salsa. Come early if it's on the weekends because the lines can be very long as most people know it's so good.
