Restaurant details
Reviewed 13 July 2014

Finding a mexican restaurant in a small town like Hermann was a big surprise and the food was on par as well. Nothing exceptional that you will remember for a long time but not to bad either. They have a lunch buffet which one can go for or a la carte. Depends on your hunger level :)

Food Taste & Quality: Decent
Service: Decent
Ambience: OK

The chips were stale and greasy. The food wasn't anything special. The atmosphere was dingy and outdated. The service was good.

Most people come to Hermann for the German atmosphere. However, if you're a local you don't give two cents about German and all you want is good food at a decent price. El Ranchito has a crummy building. Kind of a real dump that will flood in the event of a flash flood on Frene Creek. However, the food is excellent. Some of the best Mexican food I've ever eaten in the state. So, look past the crumbling structure, and go for the good food. Or, do like we do, simply order take out to enjoy the delicious food in your own lovely home without having to sit in this dumpy facility.

Only thing that kept me from rating it excellent was the margarita prices. $7.99 for a medium seemed a tad steep bc it was just average tasting. However the food was all very good and reasonably priced. Wed apparently is taco night and they were only $1 each. The side of rice was huge and some of softest best mexican rice I've had. We also had the fish tacos which were good. The salsa for the chips was pretty spicey and very good. Just like most the reviews I read the server we had was very friendly and we had great service because it wasn't very crowded on a wed night at 7. For just passing through town we lucked out by picking this place to stop. I recommend it highly of you want some good mexican food for not much money. Just be careful to check drink prices first because they're not as cheap as food.

On our last night in Hermann, Sunday night, most everything was closed. Friends recommended EL Ranchito. We shy away from the run of the mill Tex-Mex places that seem to be Xeroxed versions of one another but wanted to eat, sit, & talk. The young man who waited on us was really friendly & the menu offered some atypical options. I got the plate of three tamales but should have omitted the cheese sauce. The best choice among us was the chicken soup. We all wished we had made that choice.
