You can always count on good service and deliciously fresh food at El Ranchito. It has been a long time favorite of all the locals for many years. Highly recommend it.

Great Nachos! Prepared as ordered and extras were furnished quickly. Pleased with the fresh foods and serving staff always attentive. One of my favorites to take my mom and aunt when we want their style of food.

This is a mainstay in Seguin where you can get dependably good food and great service. I love their puffy tacos, but they're only on my diet sparingly. I have had several great meals in this restaurant and have found it to be an upbeat, lively place with fast, excellent service and typical Tex-Mex entrees.

When visiting Seguin, we always try to eat at El Ranchito. It has been there forever and had always had great food. I especially like the sauce on the enchiladas. There salsa is very good. However we had not tried their sopapillas until lately. Wow. The best I have had! I highly recommend the El Ranchito.

I lean more toward the beef and enchiladas, but my wife is a chicken lover. While I love the food here, I come here more for her. She swears that El Ranchito has the best chicken fajitas in Texas. I love their chips. They are light, crisp, and fresh. (I think most Mexican restaurants use yesterdays left over corn tortillas... More

This is our favorite gathering spot in Seguin. Best bartender in town, mixes great drinks and always on top of his game. Great margaritas and appetizers. Hot sauce and chips best in town. Employees are very attentive and friendly. Highly recommend.
