This restaurant is very conveniently located at the Best Western El Rancho Inn, where we always stay when we have an early morning flight out of SFO and we generally have dinner here. The restaurant atmosphere and décor, more upscale than one would expect, are very pleasant, and the prices are very reasonable (entrees $16 to $22 with most under $20). The mood is subdued and the restaurant is very quiet. Service is gracious, attentive, knowledgeable, and accommodating. Needless to say, as usual, we really enjoyed the dinner. This time we had the smothered pork chop and the grilled salmon filet. Both were excellent. The wine list is short, well-chosen, and very reasonably priced. There is also a patio for outside dining.

Stayed at the Best Western El Rancho as we needed a hotel w a restaurant and close to SFO for an early flight. Checked in and went to dinner. What a surprise! The menu offered a nice variety and the food and service were great! We had the salmon and the cod, both were well prepared. Reasonably priced. Lots of locals eating there, you know it's good. Highly recommend.

We ate here while staying at the hotel and it was wonderful both times. We just ate at the bar because it was not yet opened for dinner but the food was wonderful. Nice and convenient after a day of traveling.

We have stayed at the Best Western El Rancho Inn & Suites many, many times throughout the years of flying out of SFO ... and I have to say, El Rancho has one of the best Park N' Fly programs of any hotel in the area.

And we have dined many, many times at the Terrace Cafe, located on the El Rancho Inn property. In the past I would have rated this restaurant just okay ... but this past visit totally blew me away.

They must have new management ... or new management in the Food and Beverage Department because both my wife and I had one of the best dinner meals we have had in a long time ... and we had it at the Terrace Cafe. The presentation was superior, the taste of the food was excellent, and the service was absolutely great. As far as taste and quality, I would rank our meal right up there with some of the better restaurants of the Las Vegas strip.

Way to go Terrace Cafe!
