The restaurant was clean and the atmosphere was nice. We thought we had found a great Mexican restaurant during our visit to Seguin. We were wrong. I don't know what they served with their chips, but it wasn't salsa. I think it was an attempt at pico de gallo. But, it wasn't that either. Whatever it was it wasn't good.... More

Visited El Ranchito for diner tonight and the staff was great. The food was delicious and priced reasonably. After diner we had a couple drinks in the bar. Juan the bartender was one of the best we have ever had serve us.

I ordered Enchiladas with Tacos and was sorely disappointed. I have loved Mexican food since I was very young in the 1950's. I grew up in the Valley and came to love cumin, one of the quintessential spices in good Mexican food. This food was basically void of cumin or any other seasoning I have come to expect in authentic... More

I enjoyed the big dining room with lots of natural light but unfortunately the food is quite bland. Just about tasteless.

You can always count on good service and deliciously fresh food at El Ranchito. It has been a long time favorite of all the locals for many years. Highly recommend it.

Great Nachos! Prepared as ordered and extras were furnished quickly. Pleased with the fresh foods and serving staff always attentive. One of my favorites to take my mom and aunt when we want their style of food.

This is a mainstay in Seguin where you can get dependably good food and great service. I love their puffy tacos, but they're only on my diet sparingly. I have had several great meals in this restaurant and have found it to be an upbeat, lively place with fast, excellent service and typical Tex-Mex entrees.

When visiting Seguin, we always try to eat at El Ranchito. It has been there forever and had always had great food. I especially like the sauce on the enchiladas. There salsa is very good. However we had not tried their sopapillas until lately. Wow. The best I have had! I highly recommend the El Ranchito.
