This little restaurant can be tough to find but is worth it. I have eaten here twice and the food has been good both times. It is not extraordinary, but pretty good standard Mexican.

This is such a nice family run Local secret. Never real busy in the dining room, but the food is terrific! Rosa is the Lady you want to wait on you. Ms Elizabeth is always in the kitchen so it comes out, Hot, Fresh , and very flavorful. Off the beaten path, but well worth stopping!

Drinks are ok but food has gotten worse over the years. Greasy, watery, no flair. We used to go their once a week, but stopped going because the service and food is really poor.

We've been eating at El Rancho since it opened. The owners are great people. The service is wonderful. We're treated like family there. They're always willing to make substitutions if desired. It is a relaxed atmosphere. They can get pretty busy on Friday nights, but service is quick!

The food was good and there was a different selection than you get at most Mexican restaurants. The Mole-covered pork chops were good, not great. But if it we weren't following family that lived locally, we would have missed it. It's hidden in a small strip mall.
