Nice place have only been here for lunch a few times but the food has always been good. They make their own salsa which is very good.

The family had lunch here and it was very tasty, the food was very delicious. My hot & spicy burrito was pretty damn good, just not hot enough. The Texas fajitas are a home run.

I have ate at this establishment several times as it has been here almost my whole life. The only decent tasting thing to come out of this restaurant is the queso. I ordered a Chile Relleno the last time i was in on a business...More

I’ve tried other Mexican in Leesburg and not been impressed. El Ranchito is the real deal. We went for lunch, excellent service, fantastic salsa, large portions with authentic flavor. Nice atmosphere; definitely will be back.

Service with a smile, food is very good. beer at the correct temperature 35 degrees even draft. Service from bar is slow, fast on food. I recommend the small tacos as appetizer and the Tampiquena steak. I had to forgo dessert, ready for a hammock.

I have to agree with another reviewer by saying this is the worst Mexican food I've had. I ordered a platter with a burrito, a taco, an enchilada, and a chile rellano. Every item contained the same glop of tasteless greasy beef, cooked beyond identification,...More

I was expecting my salad to taste like a taco salad, regardless of whether I had beef or chicken. It had absolutely no taco seasoning, too much chicken, and very little of the other ingredients. And the warm chips/salsa is better at Chili's.
