“Some like it hot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2014

Had another excellent meal here. I had the special, Chicken burrito and beef taco $9.25. Generous portion sizes. My wife had the supper burrito. Strawberry lemonade was great. They also treat you on your birthday with a free meal. (My nephew) Fresh chips and salsa with a bean dish also. I love the fajitas here also.
Typing this with still a full stomach. Time to walk the dogs.

As a family we celebrate several times a year at RANCHITO. It reminds us of our travels and eating experiences in Mexico. The staff is always friendly and ready to help make your visit enjoyable. We always look forward to returning!!

“Great salsa, average meals, cute decor, very friendly”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2014

Went here on a "free meal on your birthday" coupon (they are closed Monday but honored it on Tuesday). Deal was as stated in ad--no tricks. Booths and tables. Ez entrance (no stairs). Friendly waiters. Cute decor with Corona lamps, witty sayings, privacy booths and open tables. Two salsas, one chunky mild, one with kick (nose running kick). Chips were warm and corn flavored not bland. Good water, but everywhere in Springfield has good water. I asked for no rice and I got it. Burrito was shredded beef and it was spiced. Frijoles were runny, which is better than bean chunky, but needed a little more meal in it. Sour cream, guacamole, all standard. Bro had standard nachos (hard to screw those up). Burrito could have had more stuff in it, like eggs, or more peppers, or more onions, it was a tad lacking (yes, I know, it would have had rice in it). I lived in LA and Arizona so I am familiar with Mexican food and this is your standard Americanized Mexican, safe, very safe, except for the salsa, which kicks a bit. So, bring the kids and grandma because this is SAFE. Don't bring your friend Jose or a food critic looking for a zing, a snap, and a pop, unless all they want is salsa. Points for decor, friendliness, honoring deal, cleanliness, ample parking (rear), fast service, salsa. Minuses for lack of pizazz and authenticity. Oh, portion sizes were very reasonable, full plates.

“fresh tortillas to order.... yummy!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2014

service is great, food is great and oh... the tortillas.
Always greeted with friendly personalities...
definately the only Mexican Food restaurant in Eugene/Springfield worth going to for a casual dining experience. Haven't even been back to Chapala's since discovering Ranchito in 2011.

“Excellent Food and Excellent Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014

I am very picky about service, and the service here was excellent. Very helpful staff and very alert and friendly waiter.
The food was excellent as well. I was here about a year ago, and liked this restaurant, but this time around it was even better.
For Mexican food, I find this as one of the best in the area.
