This place never disappoints with food. It is always served quickly and is prepared well. The service ie excellent! We go here a lot and have never had a bad meal. The only reason I did not give them a perfect score this time is because it was my first visit there when the menus were dirty. That is one... More

Date night with my wife & the service was very good and fast. Food very tasty and a great price. I like Los Rancheros for many reasons, but don't overlook the clean ascetics and friendly staff. Didn't get 5 stars because it wasn't busy enough to really put them to the test.

Nestled between a Fairfield Inn and Courtyard, it's easy too overlook this nice little piece of Mexico. Decor is nice and a little kitschy, but well done. Service is attentive and friendly. Margaritas are first rate as is the food. This is a must stop on the Springfield food circuit.

We eat here about every other month. Quality is consistently very good. Reasonable prices and fast service. I tried their guacamole today and it is excellent. Nice and fresh, not too spicy. Taco, burrito, enchilada all great. Staff is friendly too. Lunch menu available M-Sat.

My husband and I split a chicken fajita. If you are a light eater, it is plenty for two. The food was cooked well and service was fast. I would have given it a five, but the lime margaritas had a little too much lime.

Where I live, Mexican Food is everywhere and very good. I realize it is more in common here so I am being generous with 3 stars. Salsa mild and all tomato taste, chips thick and tough, no jalapeños with the nachos. The margarita was weak and watery and a charge of $6 to add a swirl.

We were traveling from Kansas City to Chicago and stopped here for lunch. The lunch specials are until 3 pm and were very reasonable - $7.25 for fajitas or chimichanga, both of which included rice and refried beans. The food was served quickly and was too hot to eat right away. The restaurant was clean and service was good. I... More

Springfield, IL was one of our stops on a 2 week road trip. Los Rancheros was a shot in the dark...literally. When we got to Springfield the motel and the restaurant were without power. There had been a big storm come through town. We were told about some other restaurants but did not want to drive anymore on that day.... More
