The steak fajitas cost $12.99 and if there was 1 1/2 ounces of meat in the fajitas I will personally kiss your cheek. There was nothing beef about them fajitas. They were by far the smallest serving of fajitas we have yet experienced. On the plus side, the flour tortillas, chips and salsa were really good.

El Ranchero is a god staple of Mexican / Southwestern cooking. We were greeted oh s nicely, almost as if we were old friends (although it was our first time). The place is simple with excellent wall painting and as your eyes get to it there is all kinds of knickey knacky (are those good words - probably not is scrabble anyway) things all around the top of the room. The chips came in warm - very nice - and a trip of dipping stuff - two salsas and creamy beans. All very nice and tasty. We split the Triple color enchiladas and all were tasty and the sauces very good. This place could easily be a go to place for locals of Wickenburg

Service starts with warm, freshly made chips and three dips. All dips are good, but I could not leave the Ben Dip alone. Real good! The TACO SALAD, is the largest, that I have ever seen. Wonderful, fresh guacamole. Everything we ordered was 1st rate. Could not finish most of it.

Servers appear to enjoy the interaction with the customers. Fun dining. Full bar. Prices are very reasonable.

Quality, Tasty, Value, Fun...What more can one ask for? We will be back...!

We went here after hiking vulture peak. So, we were really hungry! We arrived at happy hour, when bottle beers are only $2.50! Great for the guys. Two of us ordered the regular and strawberry margaritas, which were huge, and good! They bring out chips with 2 different salsa, and a bean dip, which was delicious. The menu has a lot of different dishes from the usual Mexican fare. So, it was fun to try something different. Everyone enjoyed their meals very much. We were all glad that we tried a new place in town, thanks to the reviews on trip Advisor!
