I actually liked the food in the restaurant. The atmosphere is a bit unusual for American person point of view but food is great. I had grilled chicken (Pollo parilla) and it tasted great. The waiter was super friendly and willing to take time to understand our very bad Spanish . There is no menu in English but it has... More

Food is just the best in town as well when you go south or north. You can see how they cook and prepare the dishes. Prices are good

I have been a loyal customer for years and have never been disappointed, food is consistently good and prices are competitive. I always have casuela de frijoles and love it.

When arriving to Medellin or when visiting its amazing surrounding towns, you got to visit El Rancherito. The bandeja Paisa maybe one of the best you can find, also the empanadas will make you a big fan of them.

They are constant with their quality. Rarely goes wrong. For paisa food, reliable quality Rancherito and Asados Exquisitos never fail.

I liked everything I ordered. I got this bowl that was like a medley of all different types of food in it. I don't remember the name but it tasted fantastic. I will definitely eat there next time I go back.
