“Good Mexican food”
Reviewed 29 March 2014

Decided after my last visit that this was my favorite restaurant in Ludington. Chips were warm and plentiful and the salsa is homemade and delicious, perfect amount of spice!

Loved It. Nice to find a mexican restaurant in small town like Ludington. The food was great but service could be little faster.

“Nice Mexican Suprise”
Reviewed 9 March 2014

After a long week of work, we stopped for a late lunch at a nearby Mexican restaurant we had only recently learned about. It was quite authentic. Delicious food. Huge portions. Fast service. Affordable. Nice place for a family or date night. NOTE: There are coupons available online...but you must print them. We were disappointed that we showed them our coupons on our phone, but they require that you PRINT the coupons. They also have a frequent customer card, so be sure to ask for it. But PRINT coupons before you go. We certainly will go back as Mexican is our favorite. Leftovers for lunch today for sure!

“Very good food, quick service.”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

We live in the Ludington area and eat at El Rancho weekly. The food is very consistently very good. Service is fast and I get to practice my high school Spanish since everyone who works there is from Mexico. The decor is comfortable, bright and beautiful and makes you feel like you have traveled south of the border. Excellent value since the portions are good sized, especially for the prices. We go often for lunch and sometimes for dinner and are never disappointed. The staff is always making sure you have everything you need. We love this place. Be sure to try it on your next visit to beautiful Ludington, Michigan!

“Beautiful decor w/extensive menu”
Reviewed 16 December 2013 via mobile

Amazed that the interior was so large and beautifully decorated - the booth backs, chairs, stools are awesome! So bright and cheery and clean! The food choices are endless-take your time sipping a Mexican beer and snacking on complimentary chips and salsa to peruse the menu. The portions are good sized and priced reasonably. I choose the Plato Loco and it was fabulous, right down to the Spanish rice which was moist and flavorful (I've found most to be dry and best left untouched). Will definitely be returning soon!
