“Decent Mexican Food at a Decent Price”
Reviewed December 21, 2011

Better than average tex - mex food. The Shrimp Yucatan is pretty good. They also make a pretty good chicken soup off the menu. It takes a longer to make but its fresh. A fun place to go while in Luray. I love the patio spring through fall. Consistent service. crowded on weekends but worth the wait for the value.

“Yummy”
Reviewed November 15, 2011

I love the atmosphere. The warm chips with two sauce they give you soon after you sit down is so nice. The food has always been outstanding and great! The drink selection is good from beer to mix drinks and sangria. The staff is wonderful and fast...well except for the old lady ( who if you get expect everything to be wrong and very slow...she needs to not be a server... Just ask for an another server if you get her! Besides her.... you will love your experience there.

“Best dining in town”
Reviewed October 9, 2011

I am a local. This is by far the best restaurant in town for the money and atmosphere, but that is all depending on if you like Mexican food. You can't beat the price and the cleanliness. My only suggestion to even increase their business is to add at least one American dish to the menu (besides a burger or hot dog). One Mexican restaurant that we frequent when on vacation serves ribs. This could be enough to draw in those folks that haven't acquired the taste for Mexican food. I love eating here and is always my first choice of dining in town. It is especially wonderful on those warm summer evenings to have dinner outside.

“great break after the caverns before our long drive home”
Reviewed March 7, 2011

We stopped here after a visit to the caverns.

We found Rancho Viejo on our phone after the restaurant we'd planned to eat at was closed between brunch and dinner. We were pleasantly surprised to find that it was perfect for what we were looking for. The service was fine and the food was good, and not very expensive either.
