Came in around 9p on a Saturday night after seeing a movie at the theater down the street. This was one of the only places still open (they're open til 10:30p) and the parking lot was full. So, we thought, why not? We were seated immediately, but that's about it. Someone came by with menus and chips and salsa and... More

Obviously this is a place the locals enjoy because the place was packed. The fajitas were awesome and the price was very reasonable. The restaurant is small, so get there early.

In late February a lot of restaurants are closed this Sunday afternoon. But the Rancho was hoppin. Good service and great steak fajitas and chimichangas. The seasoning has just the right amount of spice for my wife, which means only I have to add more. Wide selections and some discounts on Sunday afternoon. We'll be back.

Quick service, typical "authentic" Mexican food restaurant, nice atmosphere. We were seated fast, and enjoyed our meal. Left full and satisfied.

good place to eat. Lots of dinners under $10. Service is good and atmosphere is as expected. Give you plenty of nachos and two types of sauce. Typical Mexican food and very gòod.

We stopped by for dinner one night on our weekend getaway, it was close to our hotel and recommended, so we gave it a shot. I would say it is your typical Mexican Restaurant, with quality ingredients and fast service.

I had been with my family for lunch but I was disappointed that they did not have Guac (Strange for a mexican restaurant not to have one). Also, the burrito bowl did not have black beans, peppers, tomatoes, corn etc but it was just chicken and cheese. When asked for black beans, he actually charged me extra for it. So,... More

For starters, the chips and cheese dip were great. I ordered the combo 20 and it was the best chile relleno I have had in years!! Our waitress was on target as well. I would definitely try it out.

Good customer service but lacked important food that a Mexican restaurant should have that is guacamole. They also didn't have few Margaritas. In terms of infrastructure, one of the chairs that my friend was on was chipped and while trying to sit on it, she got hurt. Staff is friendly but these folks can improve on few things.

We did not think the food was very good and the service was slow. Waitress kept forgetting everything.
