My wife and I were looking for a nice calm place to relax and have a couple beer and some finger food. Many places were pumping loud music which doesn't make for good visiting atmosphere. When the guys on 5th avenue asked if we would like to come and enjoy the roof area seating we immediately said that sounded great!... More

My wife and I were on the way to Senior Frogs for a few dances and decided to stop at Los Rancheros for supper. WHAT A MISTAKE!!!! The supper started out fine with our waiter, Cruz, being very funny and helpful. We couldn't decide what to order so Cruz suggested we order the Mexican Platter. He brought our drinks, frosted...

Came here for lunch because we were in a hurry to catch a bus. Food was decent but about double what it would cost in comparable restaurants. Waiter was pushy and repeatedly said tip wasn't included when it clearly was on the bill. Counted the money in front of us and demanded we leave tip. I left a few coins... More

Los Rancheros looks like a tourist trap, so we take the blame for wandering in. My husband and I were looking for a quick margarita and snack. We were lured into los rancheros by a host. We each ordered a margarita. While they were larger than most margaritas, they ran $16 apiece. They were watered down, one shot drinks. I... More

I just needed small cash then used $20 for this $10 payment. I told him to give me change of $10 because 100%-TIP was too much, he said yes and went back to the casher, but he pretended ignorance and never came to my table again. I sent him a gesture but he did shake his head ? then took... More

My boyfriend and I visited this restaurant as we toured around. We were blown away by the service and the incredible food. Everything was incredible. From the guacamole made in front of you, to the mango margaritas FULL of tequila to the "taste of Mexico" platter, it was all amazing. BUT be prepared to pay! We were very shocked by... More

Had a great meal here on our layover to Tulum: the chicken nachos were excellent, as were the tamarind margaritas! The service was fast, and our waiter Candido was super friendly. Additionally, the view from the balcony was great. Most wonderfully, my friend left her phone charger here, and the (excellent) singer ran all the way down the street to... More

First the food was good but not for the price. Second watch your bill. They over billed us for everything. The charged us $4.00 each for a bottle of water we had 5 but charged us for 7, ordered 1 order of guacamole but were billed for 2. Our simple lunch of fajitas and burritos for 4 cost over $170.00...
