Decided to stop in for lunch on a weekday and just barely beat a large work-lunch crowd. Most of them had 10+ people, so the two of us sat right down. We ordered Tinca Tacos and Arroz con Pollo (ACP) with no onions or peppers. The food came within about 5 minutes, and tasted amazingly fresh! The tastiest Mexican food... More

My friends and I went here for dinner recently. It was a pretty place, and the portion sizes were very big! A couple of us got the fajita quesadillas which were good. My friend and I thought the chicken could be seasoned more as it didn't have a lot of flavor by itself but was good mixed with the other... More

I recently moved to the area and looked for a Mexican restaurant with great food at a good price, and La Rancherita was excellent. The We were greeted immediately upon entering and our waiter was very attentive and friendly. He did a great job. The restaurant itself is very clean and newly remodeled inside. As far as the food, I... More

Good experience. Gotta try their guacamole. Very good!!! We had tamales and chile rellano. Both were delicious. Table salsa has a kick which was appreciated. Juventino never let our cervacas get empty. Check them out!

We were at the mall when my husband mentioned he'd like to try the Mexican restaurant instead of the food court. We were greeted immediately and it was very obvious they were under remodeling. The menu was diverse and had some new, interesting items I'd like to try on my return. First of all they served chips and salsa- the... More

We were surprised at how much food as on our plates when we ordered our dinner. The surprise was nice. Then we were surprised at how fresh all the vegetables were. Why surprised? Because this is a cut above the usual but the price was not. I had a Grande fajita and the shrimp were plentiful, large - not popcorn... More

We were greeted and seated promptly, which is nice. The food was very good. I had unsweet iced tea, which tasted old (I'm picky about stuff like that). The restaurant was undergoing renovations, so the atmosphere was not as nice as the food. I'm not sure we ate $80 worth of food, though!

We came in late, but were seated and served very well. Our food was very good. Guacamole was excellent. Our Carne Asada was excellent as well. The music was a little loud, but tolerable. We will return.
