Amazing freshly prepared Mexican food with large portions at reasonable prices. I've LOVE their appetizer of chiles stuffed with shrimp, wrapped in bacon & fried. Their machaca sp?, pozole, chiles rellenos, chimichangas are top of the line too. However, their spicy shrimp dinner (forget the name) is my favorite. Their hot salsa and bean dip served with the chips are the best I've had! Incredible diverse menu of home-cooked food.

The dishes at El Ranchero are fresh and tasty. Much healthier and "homemade" tasting than the majority of the heavy cheese and sour cream laden Mexican fare that you get at many restaurants. You can get a simple enchilada or a beautiful shrimp dinner. The waitstaff is friendly and efficient. You can linger over a beer, or be on your way through town... either way this restaurant fits the bill. I believe the restaurant is family owned and many family members work here... it shows in the pride they put in their food. You always feel at home here.

Passing through town and found a great place for Mexican. The very freshest products and over the top service. Candy the owner gives presonal service to all her customers. The food was great! Only wish I lived a little closer, I would check out every item on the menu.

The colorful atmosphere and great costumer service makes you feel like you are in a little piece of Mexico. The best margaritas I have had in a very long time and the salsas have a more original spicyness to them. I enjoyed my time there and stop and eat there every chance I get. I loved the sopes, chile rellenos, and especially the Toritos.

Well what cant i say about "Rancheros" is a good place to eat. There menu is great and there salsa is the Best. Don Jose makes the salsa with alot of love for ever one to eat.Ever think is so clean there that you could eat in the flor they have so coloful that it fills like your in Mexico.Me as a latina I could say it fills like home. If u guys dont like my review you guys could go see Anita Cosina so nasty manger not the best. Service suck food alot of oil you could see it when you eat. So Rancheros is the best there in Wickenburg if you want mexican food theres the place.
