There are not a lot of restaurants in Hermann that stay open late. El Ranchito has great food. Loved the Top Shelf margarita. I ordered enchiladas and tamales. Both great. My entire group liked all of their food and we have picky eaters.

The service was very quick and efficient, the food was okay. It's your typical Mexican restaurant in America. Nothing extraordinary. They had really cute Halloween decorations though.

Then when I got my steak fajita quesdilla- I couldn't chew the obviously precooked reheated meat. I didn't continue to eat and went elsewhere for lunch. I would not... More

We ate here on 7/12; I had the lunch size steak fajitas and my companion had the grilled chicken salad. My meal was wonderful; I was barely able to finish it all. My companion ended up taking part of the salad home because there was so much food. Loved the complementary chips and salsa too; the salsa has a bit... More

We ate there for lunch and the place was dark and looked dirty to me. The food was not that good so now head out to the other Mexican place in town and probably would not go back there. After the high water in early 2016 the place was flooded out and closed so not sure if they will reopen... More

The margaritas are pretty good, but the food is was bland and the service isn't very good. It's closed now.... I would recommend a different Mexican place in Hermann. The restaurant is dark, not very cheery.

we love the margaritas and the tacos. the tostadas are great, as well as the beans and rice. we always get great service. The beef and bean nacho's are wonderful. very filling. My husband always gets the fajita's, and he loves them. so overall a good place to eat that's not pricey.

The food is great here and the staff is always the best! Every year, my friends and I reserve the back room for dinner and we always have the place to ourselves. This is my favorite place to eat in Hermann!
