My wife and I dropped in at El Rancho Grande Restaurant in San Juan, Texas. We were not super hungry, so we shared a Panchos Mazatlan Plate. The plate was very generously served. Lots of grilled Fajita strips and plenty of cheese and toasted tortilla chips. The Jalapeno and onions can be had on top or on the side. This... More

First time at El Rancho and I have nothing bad to say. The food was amazing and service was fast and friendly. Plentiful seating and wait staff. Price's are very competitive if not lower than other Mexican Restaurants. Highly recommended you to come and give your taste buds the splurge they need

I'm a frequent visitor here. The food portions are huge great tasting. I like the wait staff. They are helpful with your selection. The green sauce is the mild one. The red sauce, while great tasting can be hot.
