This time we shared the Chicken Fajitas, and they were EXCELLENT! Our waitress, Heather, is always sweet and attentive. Great chips and salsa, too, that are served free before the meal. Great lunch for the two of us for about $15! Delightful atmosphere.

We stopped toward the end of a long travel day, and were grateful to be seated right away. Not much of a wait at all for drinks and food, and we enjoyed the terrific chips and salsa in the meantime. Service was friendly and efficient. We each enjoyed our meals--so fresh and tasty, and ample servings without being a ridiculous amount of food. Others had the huevos rancheros, shrimp tacos, and chicken enchiladas, and they all gave them the thumbs up. I had the Santa Fe chicken tacos, which had the most wonderful chipotle cream sauce; so good! Very glad we stopped there.

El Rancho definitely has the best Mexican food in Payson. My favorites are the tacos and enchiladas. Steer clear of the huevos rancheros. Ask for hot sauce to spice up the salsa they give you with the chips. It's a little bland, mostly canned tomato flavored with green chilis. Also, if you have a margarita order it and a short glass because they use way too much sweet-and-sour.

Stopped in for lunch on our way home from :Pinetop; we haven't been here in several years - the restaurant has had a make-over, but the food remains the same - delicious!
Very friendly service!

This eatery was great for us as they have a pet friendly patio.
We had a Navajo Taco which was delicious as well as my wife's special burger.
The beer was ice cold and the service was prompt and friendly
Like most Mexican/American restaurants their prices were very reasonable

Thank thebusybea
