I stopped at a liquor store to get some local beer and asked the guy to direct me to a good taco place, authentic and spicy. He sent me to the taco shop. The taco's were great, small and loaded with filling. The shells were soft corn and really good and grainy. Went back for more after finishing they were... More

We usually go to a competitor, but they have moved. We were surprised to find that the food was much better than we had remembered. Food is really great....very authentic. Prices are a tiny bit higher than the competitor....but food is great. Friendly service and really fast!!! I highly recommend...!!!

My fiancé and I tried the carne asada and carnitas burritos, and we were both amazed how tasty the meat was. Sopes are very good as well, they taste homemade (yes! just like my moms home cooking). Give this place a try, you won't be disappointed.

Burrito was a little small and didnt have enough meat. Clean place though and food was good. This place is better than the other taco shops in hemet, like la cabana. Its even better than santanas. Will be back to try other menu items..

We eat here at least twice a month, sometimes more. The food is always consistent and my family all have their favorites. I love the 2 shredded beef taco combo, the wife likes the shredded beef taco and cheese enchilada combo and our son loves the carne asada fries. The Chicken Flautas are excellent. I have never had anything I... More

I live in Texas and eat Tex-Mex at least twice a week and have a more than a dozen decent restaurants to choose from without going to a chain shop. But when visiting relatives in Hemet I have to hit the El Ranchito (which we just call "The Taco Shop") at least once, and sometimes more than that. I have... More
