“It okay :)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2011

Excellent service! Yummy Margaritas. The whole beans were good. All the food was good just not the best. Casual, not to go if you are looking for fancy but no complaints!

“Delicious affordable food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2011

The food here is great and the service is too! Anything with shredded beef is going to be good. Also they have excellent breakfast food. Highly recommend.

“Basic food for $12/person, and the salsa is extra good.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2010

Good place to eat when you are on a budget. Comfortable and clean enough. Not fancy, just like being at one of your favorite hometown joints. The salsa and chips are particularly good. I liked the beef soft tacos better than the relleno. The enchilada and tamales were underwhelming. Stay with the fresher stuff. I'd definitely go back.

“EXQUISITE Mexican Food!!! Give it a THREE thumbs up... Give it a try!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2010

Taco Ranchero is simply the most fresh and aeromatic restaurant in Santa Maria, CA!! I have been there every single time I visit the area. Great food, great service and a wonderful atmosphere! If I lived in Santa Maria I would go everyday. Waitress greets you with a smile, you sit where you like, they bring you your chips and salsa (which are to die for!! & you can ask for chips and salsa as much as you want) bring you your drinks, wait a couple minutes before taking your order and tada fifteen to twenty minutes later... Here comes your food warm and fresh! Makes my mouth water just thinking about this! I hope this review helps you make the right choice.. Enjoy!!!
