This Mexican restaurant is staffed by friendly and efficient servers. The food is very good and the salsa is spectacular.

Only decent Mexican restaurant in the county. They are consistent. Good and priced right. Visit often and enjoy it every time. The green chicken enchiladas are great! Chips and homemade salsa when you sit down, filling entrees. We go once a week.

Definitely worth another visit. Salsa was fresh and could really taste flavors! Dinner choices were well portioned. Great wait staff. Crowded, so obvious it's a good choice for locals. Kind of hidden in a strip mall but worth finding.

As a creature of habit; I get my usual combo of a taco, enchilada and chile relleno. All very delicious. Fast service.

Wife and I had a quick lunch there this week. She had the special "Huevos con chorizo". I had the chile relleno con habichuelas. Just right serving portions for lunch and the service was great. Excellent meal for the cost.

This used to be a highly service oriented restaurant, with above average Mexican fare for a small town. We were seated at a dirty table (which the waiter seemed put out when we asked for him to please wipe it off) and our chips were...More

We always enjoy having a meal at El Ranchito. The food is hot, plentiful and excellent. If you want a tasty margarita or beer, they have a small selection that does the trick. They are willing to adjust menu items to accommodate vegetarians and vegans....More

I'm not sure if this is affiliated with the El Ranchito in Crystal River. It could be a local chain, but I couldn't find a corporate web site.
