We have been eating here a few times a year for about seven years now. The food although not what I would consider 100% traditional Mexican is consistently very good. They start you off with chips and salsa and bring you more of either without charging extra. ~The salsa is made fresh and tastes a bit different each time. We... More

Server was polite and efficient. Food was authentic Mexican and had great flavor. Waitress was quick and polite. And food came fast and was real good. Chips and salsa were freshly made and they kept it full. Definitely a must stop when in town. Be stopping this weekend when in town

Let me start with stating I fully understood that May 5th would be a busy day to go but I do not understand why the service was so horribly terrible. They stated a 30 minute wait, no problem, but when you are sitting waiting and people come in that they know and they are told in front of you that... More

We went for dinner. We had great service and great food. We all ordered from the combo section and were not disappointed. Great food at great prices.

Hadn't been here in several years but with our favorite Mexican restaurant out of business and the negative reviews about the one in Inwood concerning service and price increases, we opted for here based on reviews on 3 sites; so glad we did. The reason for 4 instead of 5 is the service. It was 8:30pm and only about 4... More

Went to Las Trancas today for Margarita Monday, i.e., $1.99 for a good sized margarita. Was greeted by Maria with complimentary tortilla chips and salsa following almost immediately, ordered two margaritas, then ordered off of the lunch menu, Two meals, 3 margaritas later, and using a $2 off coupon from Val-Pak, the bill totaled $17.39, including tax. Tip was extra,... More

My wife and I had dinner here last night. We were seated right away and almost as soon as we were seated, waiter greeted us with complimentary chips and salsa. He took our drinks orders and came back right away. We both ordered the enchilada supremas (four small enchiladas, cheese, bean, chicken and beef). Food was excellent and filled us... More

Best Mexican food around. I have travelled to many states too and there are very few that come close to this restaurant. I was concerned when the former company, El Ranchero closed it's doors because their food was awesome but this seems to be the same place, just a different name. Real Mexican food, great taste, good prices, good service.
