“Decent mexican restaurant”
Review of Gran Ranchero

Gran Ranchero

Reviewed 4 September 2017

I've been there with family a handful of times and they are of the typical mexican cuisine. I can't say I've ever had a bad meal but they don't really have anything that makes them stand out apart from other mexican restaurants in the area.

We did not have to wait, but not many tables were available at 6:30pm. Service was very attentive. Good selection of menu options and 3 beers on tap. Combo plate is a great way to sample multiple menu items in one meal.

Excellent food and great service, the Carne Asada was delicious, and the Fajitas were also, great deal on Corona Light draft as well.

Typical of American Mexican establishments. The food is the same most everywhere, nothing bad, nothing memorable. Service is usually very good. Occasionally they have special beers, Victoria was pretty good. Very fast service, plenty of parking. I think there is a bar area. It is in the back and not visible. They may have a lunch special during the week. Speaking Spanish is a plus if you have questions.

We came on a very busy Friday night during Mom's weekend. There were probably 30 people waiting for a table and it was full. We were told ten to maybe twenty min wait for a table. It was an hour. The bar was too crowded to even try to get a drink.
The servers were racing around getting orders and drinks and delivering food. When we were seated the service was very prompt and they remained attentive despite the crowd. I say well above average on service.
The food was the standard American Tex mex type of Mexican. Relatively bland taste without much heat. The enchilada sauce Tasted a bit like cinnamon. The quest and salsa were adequate. Really just Average.
They do not have reservations or ability to text when a table is ready. If you go on a busy night be prepared to wait.
