Lunch at El Rancho Viejo was a pleasant surprise. Really not many authentic Mexican restaurants north of Tucson, AZ but this one qualifies. Chips and both salsas were good. Burritos, Chili Rellenos and Tamales were very good, flavorful and a more than adequate serving size....More

Let’s start with the good stuff. The family that owns this place are super nice! We have had super nice waiters and really super service. If only the food was as good as the people. I really like the salsa they serve with the chips....More

This Mexican restaurant is in my back yard, Ridgefield Washington. Are usually take my friends and family here because the food is very well-made, service is excellent, and a picture of well-made sangria goes a long way. It is a very clean And casual atmosphere....More

Great old authentic Mexican food. Great refried beans without lard. Good sue portions and reasonable prices. Beautiful decor inside. Great service and friendly atmosphere. Appears to be a family operation. A great experience.

This is what I would call average Mexican food priced fairly in a decent place. The staff are very nice and the service is fine. A good place for a luch or dinner on the run.

The food was hot but bland. Nothing special about it but nothing wrong with it either. Portions were large. Price was average. Looks like it's family owned, which is a plus.

Brother-in-law recommended this place for a quick bite to eat. Very surprised. Felt and tasted like authentic Mexican. We'll be back on our next visit. Park along the street in front of the restaurant.
