“Worth the trip. Every time.”
Reviewed April 5, 2014 via mobile

We go to Rancho Chicos at least once a month (from BC). Not only has the food never been anything but the best Mexican I have had, the service is second to none. If you really want to feel like your business is valued, these people do it every time.

“Best Mexican Food”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

Friendly service, excellent decor. Complimentary chips salsa and small salad. Food is fresh hot and the portions are large. The price is very reasonable. Have been there several times on our way to Seattle. Sometimes we just go for the day to Omak and make a point of stopping there for lunch or dinner. Worth the trip. To top the meal off they serve a complimentary little dessert . So good.

“Dos sombreros arriba para Rancho Chico!”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

Sorry, I'm relying on an online translator for my Spanish...... but it still means "Two Sombreros up for Ranch Chico!!" What a great meal and experience at this restaurant for the 2 familes of 4 in our group. I'm glad it was Tuesday, why do you say this..... cause Trino's mexican restaurant in Oroville was closed to our dismay, which led us ~20 miles further down the road to Ranch Chico. Decor is very colourful and clean for a great fiesta feel. Two fresh varieties of salsa served with warm chips started everyones appetite off right. The menu was endless with almost too much to choose from, but we all settled on excellent entrees and kids enjoyed their menu's too. The finishing tequilla shot was the icing on the cake......smoooooooth without the salt and lemon. We will be back next year for sure on our annual Calgary to Osoyoos vacation with cross border Ranch Chico stop-over! See you next year!

“So Authentic”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

The food is really fresh, an immediate serving of oven roasted nachos and two types of dip/salsa so fresh!!!
The entrees were excellent, freshly prepared to perfection. The authentic Mexican decor, family owned, friendly service, clean establishment all contributed to a great and very nice surprise!!! dinner. Thank you to the wonderful family who have guaranteed a place in our travels.
