As I was told by Carlos, the restaurant owner, this place opened a month ago under his tutelage. The chef is from Argentina and as expected he delivers an exquisite meat cut cooked to perfection. The accompanying chimichurri sauce is as good as it gets, and can compete with the better chimichurri from any of the Argentinian provinces or Uruguay.... More

Been going to Rancho for years. What a disappointment to find out that ribs were barely mentioned on the menu. A dollop of extra sour cream was $2.00. Totally ala cart. Very expensive. Won't be going back. So 😢

One of the best filet mignons I have ever had! Menu options a bit tricky at first to understand so I guess the menu could be more clear on this. You need to order sides and sauces to go along with your main meal. Just ask them to explain from the get go. Visited here twice it was that good,... More

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 arrived on a Friday night at 9 pm. We were seated quickly and our orders were taken quickly as well. As we sat and waited for our surf and turf we noticed a lot of food was being returned to the kitchen... Our Steak is dry and a poor quality cut. We returned one of our steaks 3 times... More

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...
