I love El Ranchon. I used to go there all the time when I lived in Magnolia. Great basic Mexican food (love the chicken enchiladas!) and wonderful margaritas. But the friendly service is what has always won me over. They take great care of you,...More

We love this restaurant. The food is great (as good as anything I've had outside of Mexico), the service is awesome and fun for my kids and the best part, we can walk there from our house.
