“UMMMM!!! GOOD!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

Great Mexican lunch. Only complaint was the salsa was just so-so. Service was wonderful and lunch specials were excellent.

“A must visit if you like Mexican food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014 via mobile

We have been wanting to try here ever since it opened and boy were we not disappointed. Pretty extensive menu with lots of options. Really appreciate that the prices are very reasonable as well.
If you like seafood that highly recommend the shrimp and crabmeat chimichanga, just fantastic! Of course gotta love the endless chips and salsa that is on the table.
Service was very good; friendly and always made sure our drinks were never left empty for long. Also restaurant is spacious, bright and has a family friendly atmosphere.
Jus wish we were so full from dinner that we could have tried dessert but great excuse to make a return visit...which will be in the very near future.

“Suprisingly good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

Moving to a new town, finding a decent Mexican spot was a must. After finding El Ranchero, I was not disappointed. The service was quick and polite and the food was better than expected. For the price, I could not ask for much more.

We've been coming to this restaurant for years and have never had a bad experience. The food is always good, fresh and served hot. The prices are very reasonable. If you like mexican food, you really cannot go wrong here.

“Another Mexican gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

This restaurant is located near the big mall in Hagerstown. It is worth the drive vs. eating at the chain places in the mall. Service was very prompt and accurate. the Monday special lime margarita was a great deal @ $1.99. The Dos Equis on tap was also great in the 32oz size (no need dfor refills!). My wife enjoyed seafood enchiladas and I liked the shrimp chipotle. The sauce was not as smokey as that at Tlaquepaque (in Mt. Airy, NC), but still good.
