This is my family’s favorite Mexican restaurant, and we probably stop by three times a month. My husband and I always order the fajitas for two. It is a ton of food for both of us along with plenty to take home leftovers. Since Covid...began, we have still be doing takeout orders. Every time we have ordered our food has come our hot and fresh. I would highly recommend this restaurant if you enjoy good Mexican food!More

The Pollo a la Parillia was a nice change of pace. A charbroiled piece of chicken which was seasoned to perfection. The vegetables (green peppers, onions and tomatoes) were also seasoned with the same seasoning that was on the chicken. It was served with rice,...beans and of course the traditional guacamole and sour cream. Add some warm flour tortillas and you have a wonderful meal served by an attentive staff. The burrito was so so. All in all a good meal worth a future visit.More

Are you sure frequently. Very reasonable price food. Good service. And this is my favorite dish hands down.

I visited this establishment around 3pm on a Thursday afternoon. The ambiance reminded me Mexican restaurants in Texas - a open floor with not so great decorations. I was one of two people there. I ordered a margarita on the rocks with salt. It was...probably the worst margarita I've ever had and tasted like (literally) lime juice with tequila. I would have sent it back if the waitress checked in on me at least one time, but she did not. For my entree I had the "Burrito Supremo" which consisted of one beef and one chicken burrito - topped with lettuce, sour cream, guacamole and your regular Mexican fanfare. Honestly, it was really great. Overall just "meh" due to the lack of customer service and disgusting margarita - however the place has potential if they actually put in a little initiative. The food is actually great.More

Great lunch with big servings! Our waitress was prompt and delivered great service! We had the newest dessert, Cheesecake Chimichanga with ice cream, whipped cream, and Carmel sauce! Yummy.

A friend and I eat together once a year at El Rancho. We were very impressed with the quality of the food in the large portions but at the same time a reasonable price. They have a large menu and it is easily accessible. You...won't be disappointed!More

We come here almost every Sunday! The owner Rudy meets and greats you as you come in! He calls you by name and asks how you and your family is doing, he knows their names too. The food is made fresh to order and if...there is something you want that is not on the menu just tell him and they will make it! They serve fabulous pineapple fajitas as well as broccoli dishes that the other Mexican restaurants do not have.More

The food is very good and prices reasonable. You get a lot of food for the cost. Service is friendly and good.

El Rancho has been serving authentic Mexican food for over 15 years- my faves being Platillo Ranchero and their fish tacos, and my husband's favorite combo number 26. Could easily drink their salsa it's so fresh and scrumptious, their beer is always good and cold,...and as a bonus, their ice machine makes that great crushed slushy fun to chew ice. Haven't tried their margarita (but only because of my shady college days run-in with tequila) but they sure serve a lot of them. Another good TR staple restaurant.More
