Food was pretty basic Mexican dishes. The staff were friendly. The chips & salsa were ok. Nothing too exciting for Mexican dishes.

Figured this would be standard 'Mexican" food considering the location but I was wrong. The refried beans were as good as mine....and mine are GREAT. The chile relleno was not frozen which was a nice surprise and quality cheese was used to make it. The table salsa was very good - went through 3 servings of it. The restaurant was... More

I normally take a photo but, the aroma and sight of that big beautiful plate of real chili rellanos just took me over. It's the real deal and I (a native born Texan) highly recommend El Ranchon!

This place is a little on the higher side when it comes to price. The food is ok with their lunch specials around $7 a plate. You can get all the chips and salsa you want.

On Main Street, easy access. Mid range prices, $10-16.00 for a meal. Lunch deals begin at $6.99 for a great selection. Staff was pleasant and efficient. Can't really mess up a burrito, beans and rice but it was tasty.
