Don't let the fact this used to be a McDonald's fool you. This place is GOOD! The salsa is homemade and fantastic as is the white cheese dip. They have a Talapia dish, I believe it is called Pescado Yukatan, that is easily my favorite Mexican dish of all time! Their fajitas are awesome, but I never eat them now... More

I never give one star reviews, but I came very close to with this place. The only thing that saved it was their queso fundido was good. The service at this restaurant was horrendous. Wait, let me change that. If you are a local you got great service, if you are tourist than prepared for some of the worst service... More

It's not fancy and probably most wouldn't call this real Mexican, but it is absolutely the best in Luray! Our food was tasty and well prepared. You can't beat the service and friendliness of all who work here from the manager to each of the staff. We are regulars and we love Rancho!

I've went there several times. The service is OK. The food is mediocre. But the one other Mexican restaurant in town is horrible. So, by process of elimination...

I have been here a few times when I'm in Luray and the drinks and food are always very good. The staff is also very nice. This trip they were out of guac (oh no!), but a delivery truck failed to arrive so you can't really blame them. If you are in the mood for some good mexican food and... More

My kids and I ate here after visiting Luray Caverns. After reading some of the reviews, I decided we'd try it. My kids ate the kids menu Enchilada, rice, and beans. They devoured it. I had the Chori Pollo, which was delicious. Not your usual Chori Pollo, but still very tasty. Flavors of everything was good. The salsa and white... More

We went to Rancho Viejo for lunch on a Sunday. It is located in an old McDonalds that they have renovated. We got there right before church let out, so we were able to be seated right away. It started as is usual for a Mexican restaurant - with chips and salsa, but this time there was a twist: There... More

Service was very good, food was typically Mexican, and good. Reasonably priced. Mixed age group, so bring the kids.

Service took a few minutes to get going, but the food and drinks were excellent and the prices very reasonable for the amount of food we were served. Highly recommend this restaurant if you are in the Luray, VA area.

The food is good but the service I must say is way too slow. Staff is pleasant though but if you have young kids, make sure you give your waiter a nice hint...
