The people who work here are awesome and interact with the kids in a way that makes the dining experience great fun. The restaurant itself is low-key, very casual and cozy. The food is good. There's parking right in front of the building. It's located on a narrow street that looks like it could be part of a movie set.... More

We just moved to the area and Mexican food is my favorite ever. I was so excited to to see this place right down the street. Wait staff was super nice, and very friendly and fun. They are great with our kids Food was the best. Service was quick! We will definitely be returning.

Rancho has been a hidden gem for many years in Georgetown. Over the years, have gotten to know the owner's family and the wait staff. Truly a great place to unwind and simply the best service I've had anywhere. If it's not on the menu - they'll make it for you. Excellent food, atmosphere and cadillac margaritas!

Lots of options. Great quality, quantity, and price. The picky eater, the traveler to Costa Rica, and the Spanish major friend all liked it.

This restaurant is well located for us...very close to home. We were new to the area and so stopped in for dinner. Disappointed would be an understatement. Should have been better, but wasn't. The service was good, the place attractive. Perhaps we caught them on a bad day, but we have no reason to go back

We have been looking for good Mexican food here and this has been the best by far. Great food with great service, they feature a full bar as well. Daily specials are excellent. This has become a weekly go-to for good food and a good time.

We enjoyed recent visit to this old style tex mex restaurant. Margaritas and chips and salsa were good. Entrees including chicken fajitas and puerco pipian were both well prepared and delicious. Service was a bit sedate but food was also delivered promptly after our order. We would visit again if in the area.

In little Georgetown, off the beaten path. This restaurant has been consistent in quality & presentation for years. By day empty but evenings it picks up. Authentic Mexican beers, typical entrees but for me O don't find them loading on the sauce. AirConditioned. Restrooms ok. Service very attentive (but again I can't tell good/bad as they are never busy). Salas... More
