I ate at El Ranchero Restaurant several times during my 16 week stay in Wichenburg, Az and the food was always delicious and friendly, professional servers. I also had left-overs for my lunch the next day to carry to work.

We stopped here 2 years ago for the first time, and the food was outstanding. This time, it was even better. Great food, service and prices. Parking can be a problem, however there is additional parking in the rear.
