No frills but very tasty Mexican food. Very reasonable prices. Friendly family service. My enchilada carnita (sp?) was very good, accompanied by some salad and refried beans. Not too much food, unlike many Mexican restaurants. One of my top spots for lunch.

We always eat here when we are in the mood for Mexican cuisine . The staff is always very friendly and helpful. Every dish on the menu is delicious to the last bite. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for authentic Mexican eats

I really thought the value would be better. The service was decent, but the food was not very good. The American quesadilla was worth about half of what was charged.

Ranchero's Taqueria is the place to go for a delicious Mexican meal at a great price. The decor isn't fancy. The staff are all very friendly. The food is fresh and flavorful. If you don't see what you want on the menu, just ask - they will probably make it for you anyway.

I reviewed in September expressing my disappointment that the quality had deteriorated. We missed eating here so much that we decided to try again recently, and I'm happy to say it has returned to its former standard, hooray! My favorites are the small chicken burritos, the rice and beans, and the fish tacos. So glad to have this back in... More

This restaurant features more menu offerings and better quality ingredients than the usual Mexican restaurant in the Akron area. Both food preparation and wait service were outstanding - they could not have been more cordial. Be advised that this place is not in a fancy neighborhood,but it does offer honest value with regard to its food. We were especially impressed... More

I am a LONG TIME customer of this place and used to love it, there was a time I would have given it 5 stars. But it has been slowly slipping and is now disappointing for me. Staff turnover is one of the problems and a kitchen that has become too liberal with salt. Prices are unbeatable and the fish... More

Authentic food, great selection, and value. Food was very good. Highly recommend this establishment. Amazing quality from this little "hole-in-the-wall". Atmosphere was relaxing, great family-friendly place. Now in the rotation of favorites while in Akron. Our son recommended it to us and was spot on. Combo meals were our selections but menu had large variety. Loved the hot salsa. Wait... More

This is the most authentic Mexican Food in the Akron area. The Mexican dishes are not Americanized. Chef David is from Mexico. Prices are reasonable, the food is fantastic. Great Margaritas and daily chef specials. The restaurant is nothing fancy but it is clean and the staff is friendly. This is one of my favorite casual restaurants in Akron.

Ranchero's is a great place - once you find it, and successfully cross Cuyahoga Falls Avenue from the parking lot, you'll love it. Food is excellent, authentic, and different from all the other Mexican places around (which let's face it, are quite similar) - service is good and friendly, and once you've been there a few times you're immediately one...
