Steaks were seasoned well and grilled to perfection. The Balsamic Mixed Greens were delicious. The baked potatoes were a tad overdone. All in all a good meal for a decent price.

We were looking to see some entertainment. Rancho was close to our Condo. We enjoyed the Fajita and the entertainment. We came back the next Saturday with another couple to enjoy the entertainment and dessert.

We've been to Ranchos a couple times before and usually their steak are great. This time my steak was a little bit tough for a tenderloin. However other people with us had the New Zealand tenderloin and it was tender. The restaurant has high ceilings and a very spacious feel. There is no air conditioning, and some of the Windows...

The entertainment brought us here one night. We had a ring side seat to Flamenco dancers. The food was so good my husband couldn't finish it off and brought a doggy bag home. I had the steak and man was it good!

We were the 1st customers when they opened so we were unsure about the place. The server took our order for drinks which was 2-1 and were delicious! We ordered an appetizer of shrimp on a skewer which were good. The server suggested that we have bread with the homemade butter with herbs in it and it was so good!... More
