We have been going to El Ranchito's for years. They have the best Mexican food in town. I do a dinner group each week and when I do el Ranchito's I have one of the biggest turn out. Great food, large portions, and good pricing.

This is a quaint little restaurant. We arrived around 8:30 on Sunday and they were very accommodating, as they close at 9:00. We had enchiladas several different ways.
