Hubby and I were looking for something other than fast food and El Ranchero was recommended. Service was excellent, Hector was very knowledgeable and friendly. Food was great, large portions and plenty of flavor. The margarita was awesome. Overall a great experience. One tip, they have additional parking behind the building.

We eat here every year when in town. This last visit they accomodated one of our dieters by serving salad instead of the rice and beans. He raved about the homemade cilantro dressing. They bring chips and salsa and beans to every table before your meal. My chicken enchilada this year was not memorable but I will return. cheers, Bill

Driving from Las Vegas to Phoenix to see our son. We were tired, hungry, and ready to stop for a break. El Ranchero came up on trip advisor with great reviews so we decided to try it. We were greeted by a very friendly staff. She explained some of the menu. I ordered the chicken burrito. It was stuffed with... More

Our go to place for Mexican food when in Wickenburg. Staff are friendly and food is consistently good. Get a house margarita - they are great! We have tried almost everything on the menu. Love the chili relenos, shrimp tacos, shredded beef burritos and cheese enchiladas.

Wickenburg has several Mexican Restaurants. We've been to all of them several times. We were so happy when El Ranchero opened. It is consistently the very best. We don't go to the others anymore and when asked, we always recommend El Ranchero. Not only is the food great, but they have the very BEST margaritas, bar none! 😃

Met my father here for his birthday, he and mom live in Prescott, I live in Phoenix, so this was a good half way point. The atmosphere was quaint and welcoming and the staff was friendly and attentive. The food was very good and the portions were as expected. Definitely a place I will return to in my travels as...
