“Slovenija's Best Pljeskavica?”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

OK, I don’t know if this riverside place steps away from the world’s oldest vine serves Slovenia’s best pljeskavica as some reviewers claim. Yet I can guarantee this signature meat dish is very tasty here, thanks to mouthwatering accompaniments from ajvar sauce to peppers and onions. Service is super fast and portions are big. We (a group of three) ordered one pljeskavica ranca and one equally delicious lepinja with kalmak cheese but couldn’t finish them, providing us with breakfast for the next morning while costing less than 20 euros. The friendly staff speaks English but unfortunately there aren’t desserts to kill the grease.

The interior is simple, but the food is very tasty. Probably the best pljeskavica I ever had. I definitely recommend

“Great food!”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

You must stop for a pleskavika at Grill Ranca! The restaurant is similar to a fast-food, but the service is great and the food is amazing! Be ready to get a little grease on your hands and you will be rewarded with a great taste!

“The best "pleskavica" in whole Slovenia”
Reviewed 24 January 2014

I have eaten at Ranca's many times and I always stop there for eating a pleskavica, a typical balcan hamburger, everytime I am in Maribor. The place is not so big, but it looks nice and they are usually very fast in serving you the meal. Choice is not so wide, as mainly you can eat pleskavica and čevapčiči. Their signature dish is "Pleskavica Ranca", a pleskavica that is served with a lepinja (a typical balcan soft bread) with kajmak (a creamy tasty cheese), ajvor (a sauce made out of peperoni, eggplants and tomatoes), white onions, corns, tomatoes and peperoni. The meat is just amazing, the best that I have ever eaten in Slovenia. If then you want also a beer you are not going to spend more than around 11 € for person.

“Just a fancy takeaway ”
Reviewed 6 January 2014 via mobile

This a kabab type place that is in a fancy looking building with nice decor and chairs.
The waitresses are very nice and polite and you are served quick.
The inside has a terrible smell so you have to sit outside. The food is served quite quick however it is very greasy and ours repeated on us for a while.
If you want a sit down kabab tour experience this is the place to go. However if you want a grill as the name suggests find somewhere else.
I won't go again
