After many years of decent service I am disappointed that there is an apparent change of management in this West Stone Drive restaurant. That is the only reason I see for the change in service. Rude service from the new guy will not go unnoticed by the public. I will never return.

I ordered arroz con camarones, Which is just Shrimp, cheese sauce, and rice. The Shrimp, however, were small and not cleaned properly. The vein on the back of most of them was not removed and the majority of the shrimp were gritty and sandy. My partner's quesadilla looked really good though, and the service was decent.

Food is traditional Mexican, friendly staff, and a family friendly place to eat. The flan and taquitos Mexicanos are wonderful.

The service and food has gone downhill steadily. Took me 45 mins to order, receive, eat, and pay for 3 tacos. There were 3 other tables. My waitress walked by me 5 times with my drink and plate empty. When I finally asked her for the check, she acted like I was bothering her. The people at the table next... More

We live nearby and we go there frequently. The prices are great and so is the food. They make things quickly, you can show up to place your to go order and they will have it ready in 5 minutes. The staff is friendly and it is very clean and pleasant.

Another Mexican place closed! Not sure what is going on with several Mexican places in town. Would be a hassle to drive up all the way to JC in order to get some good food. The place at 4368 W Stone Dr is still open and hope it will remain so. The food is very good and prices are reasonable.

This is a place that we've been meaning to try but always forget to when we're looking for a place to eat. What a pleasant surprise!! We were immediately welcomed as soon as we walked in by who we surmised to be the husband of the couple that likely own El Ranchito. Upon sitting down at our choice of booth,... More

It's a nice place and quite affordable prices. The staff are courteous. Portions are sufficient and taste is good. Salsa bar is the best feature.

Nothing that my family ordered was fresh. Everything was produced out of a microwave which you could easily see from the booth where we were seated. The waitress was rude rolled her eyes at us and walked away, yammering something in Spanish to another coworker and they laughed at us. This place only gets two stars because it is better... More
