Manager or owner was the only one there. He was having a business meeting in one of the booths. Needless to say, the meeting was more important than customers. Tables filled with dirty dishes, took forever to have our order taken. The food was just very mediocre. Tacos were terrible, enchilada okay, toastada not very good. The tortilla was not... More

While Rancho does have a decent menu and food in house, and we do like the service, I would advise you to be careful with take out orders. We recently tried to let the restaurant know that we do not appreciate Styrofoam containers put in the microwave, MELTING them to warm the beef filling for our taco salads, and we... More

Went in later than I would normally try to go out on a Sunday night. A little after 8, which this time of year is late to eat good food on the coast. The menu is extensive and has plenty of seafood options that look really good. My wife and I just had a sampling of standard Mexican fare. Everything... More

We love Mexican food, and this restaurant was very conveniently located right across the street from the Westward Motel where we stayed for one night. We walked across the street for dinner. We were seated right away. The salsa was good; the chips were from a bag. The meal was mediocre. The next time we are in Brookings we will... More

My wife and my 1 year old daughter and I walk down to this restaurant for dinner. The staff was amazing and the food was delicious. The staff made us feel extremely welcome and they all interacted with our daughter making her smile and laugh.

We were only in Brookings for 4 nights and decided to eat here a 2nd time. The food was outstanding, the waitress was friendly, and good drinks from the bar. I see that others have complained about the service, but we were served promptly with food and drinks. We'll definitely go back!
