“Avoid this place!”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

Undercooked literally still frozen meat. Ordered chicken tenders instead with ranch and the ranch was yellow and spoiled. My friend ordered guacamole on her burrito and the server said it came with it but the burrito had none. Manager laughed about it, and said the ranch was suppose to be yellow!? Did not go about resolving the problem well at all. Service sucks!

“Great Authentic Mexican Food!”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

What a great Mexican restaurant. The food is excellent at reasonable prices. There is an extensive menu of food and beverages, including all your favorite Mexican beer. The restaurant is very clean, decorated in Mexican motif with very friendly service! Would highly recommend, definitely not a chain.

“Not a Chain”
Reviewed September 7, 2012

This mexican restaurant serves the real thing. The chips are very good and the salsa is medium. They offer daily specials and several combo meals. The food is good and the service is good. We are "return patrons".

“Great Mexican food...much, much better than La Seniorita”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

I love eating at the El Rancho. Their Mexican food is very good and well prepared, served hot. The restaurant is clean and the service is the best. ...And the prices for the meals are very inexpensive.

This restaurant is much better than the La Seniorita restaurant down the road. The La Seniorita is dirty and the food is terrible.
