What you would expect in a Mexican restaurant. Staff is attentive and menu has some depth. My teenagers like the lunch buffet. Reasonable prices, good quality.

This is the place to go if you want great Mexican food. The lunch buffet is well worth the money. Big variety and don't forget the churros and flan

Love the lunch buffet here. Reasonable price and a lot of choices. Plenty to choose from for a couple of our picky kiddos. Service is always friendly.

I have been here often with friends. While I am not a huge buffet fan, the lunch buffet is a quick option that is good.

Nothing really special I'm sorry to say but the food was good and the restaurant was clean. This was your run of the mill Mexican restaurant. I wish I had more to say other than I definitely would eat here again but I don't think I'll be jonesing for this restaurant either.

El Rancho has a large buffet at lunch with decent variety. They also have karaoke with margarita specials every once in a while. Very nice people and festive environment.

While visiting my Cousin he took me to eat here and it was fantastic. The buffet had so much to choose from and I forced myself to stop after a 3rd trip to the buffet. Food was very good and service was also good. Highly recommend.

This is a great place to go after the volleyball games for a quick bite and a sweet drink. The service is quick, the drinks are decent and the food works for the late evening.
