We enjoyed a great dinner here while visiting family. The restaurant is clean and inviting with friendly staff. The chips and salsa were a nice start and the chips weren't greasy like some other restaurant's. There was also this "white sauce" that came with the chips that was fabulous. The drink selection was good and our entrees were delicious. I... More

I was amazed at the amount of food that came with our two entrees. The waitress brought us chips and salsa while we looked over the menu and brought us more when the first batch had run out. (I love Mexican restaurants with free chips and salsa.) We ordered the burrito combination plate and the vegetarian burritos. Both were great.... More

Rancho is a good place to go for dinner in luray. One of the only place in town that has consistently good food. Great tables for friends and families to gather around for drinks and food.

My wife and I stopped here for our main meal in the early afternoon on the way home after spending 3 days on the Skyline Drive. My wife ordered the Fajitas and it was decent and she enjoyed it. I enjoyed a combo platter of enchiladas and a chile relleno. However when I received my plate, I noticed that the... More

I was getting to be a regular because I really love the food and the prices. But the last time this SWF went in for lunch, I got a couple of unwanted sides of affection from a male waiter. Haven't been back since.

The atmosphere is not as bad as some previous reviews suggest and the food is good. I ordered a white cheese and chorizo dip as an appetizer which was excellent and followed that with some steak soft tacos which were very good and well seasoned. The rest of the family enjoyed their food, but everybody had a hard time eating... More

Best Mexican food we've had in VA, and we will return again. Also, the margaritas are "generous" to say the least. Extremely friendly staff make it a warm and inviting place to dine.

Stopped into this place within the past year traveling through Luray at the Caverns. Place was fairly busy but was seated right away and service was good. Appears to be an old converted McDonalds but has been updated inside looks pretty good and clean. Chips and Salsa were very good and the queso was excellent. I had Fajitas and it... More
