This place probably has trouble competing with the bigger draws at Crabtree, but it is better than most of them. Very reasonable prices and an untypical Mexican menu. We had the scallops/bacon tortillas and the huraches rojos. Both came with a bowl of delicious pozelo,...More

Traveling for business I stopped in for dinner. The food here was average at best, I didn't think it had a lot of flavor. I got the fajitas and didn't even eat a quarter of it. The best part of the meal was the chips...More

La Rancherita is a cut above the normal Mexican restaurant. Their menu is similar to the norm; however, their food is a cut above. The only place near that beats them is Tacos Y Tequilla.

Very attentive service on a Thursday evening. I ordered the ribeye chiliquiles, cooked medium. Steak was very well prepared. Side dish of refried beans was a little soupy for those who prefer thicker. Sangria was very good with good berry flavor throughout. Décor on the...More

Decided to stop in for lunch on a weekday and just barely beat a large work-lunch crowd. Most of them had 10+ people, so the two of us sat right down. We ordered Tinca Tacos and Arroz con Pollo (ACP) with no onions or peppers....More
