The food was amazing. The staff super friendly and helpful. We will be back and so should you. Try this place. It's on the second floor so pay attention or you'll miss it but well worth it

Went there on new years eve. The staff in front off the restaurant told and showed in the menu that Mexican food plate for two is about 1000 pesos. As we went up the price had risen to 1400 pesos for no reason. We were too tired to change the restaurant so we decided to stay. We ordered a bottle... More

We have been to Los Rancheros three times, and each was just as good and just as much fun! Everyone enjoyed their meal, which is saying something, since we included meat lovers, seafood lovers and a vegetarian. The mariachi band came to play and definitely added to the festivities! And don't forget to order the Mayan coffee! The more orders,... More

The food here is excellent and the fresh made guacamole is a must. Enjoyed it very much and happy with the food. We also had the shrimp ceviche and the fajitas which were excellent.

Restaurant was empty but we were placed at very small table. We chose a wine by the glass that was off, which we rejected but no apology or effort to open a new bottle. The waiter did not pour the water, but when opened by us went all over the table. We asked for the manager, who did not seem... More

I was hoping this place would blow me away but it didn't. I thought the staff were lovely and friendly. The food was prepared well but the overall taste was just fine. I had the chicken fajitas. like I said they were prepared well and the chicken had a good texture but there were no spices added. It was just... More

I left my Ray Bans on the table at Rancheros and then I left. Came back the next day retracing my footsteps (thinking I should just let the shades go). Marlena the waitress had wrapped them in paper and written my name on them and put them safely behind the bar. Thanks Moses for having such a professional team. Really... More

Had a meal here recently, the food and service were great, and the band they had playing was entertaining....all good until the bill arrived! They totally overcharged us for the meals we ordered, going off the menu prices (that were quickly removed from our table) we were expecting it to be around $130 ish but when the bill came it...

I was very skeptical about 5th Avenue restaurants after several disappointments. I don't care for any Mexican food in this popular area except for La Parrilla and Los Rancheros. Service was excellent and the view from the balcony is great for people watching. They added the tequila to our margaritas at the table, I suppose to increase the trust factor.... More
