“EL RANCHITO”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

"One was a burrito, one was a chimichanga, both were filled with some kind of mushy interior that at one point Michelle identified as EGG. They were flavourless, too soft, and a big disappointment for those very standard Mexican dishes."

“Delicious fresh food and friendly service!”
Reviewed September 1, 2013 via mobile

Had heard mixed reviews about this restaurant so decided to try it out and were really pleased that we did. The food was fresh, authentic and very tasty. They were able to substitute corn for wheat in any of the dishes that we wanted for the gluten free option. Will definitely be going back and also likely taking advantage of their take out option.

“Very tasty....though the service is not top notch.”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

We eat at this restaurant quick often, both eat in and take out.
The food is always very good and their menu offers many options, including a large amount of vegetarian dishes. The prices are very affordable and the servings are large.
Sadly, the service often is not great and they can get your order incorrect (which you won't be compensated for when the bill arrives). Despite the lack of great customer service we still return for the good food.

“Good”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

It was really good, the people were very nice but I was a little annoyed at how long they took to collect the check, seems a little understaffed but very good food.
