I loooooooooooove this place! It has the best shredded beef *anything* along with some of the best refrieds I've ever had. there's not a big fancy menu, but you'll def find something for everyone, whether it's Mexican or BBQ. Breakfast choices are really good (chorizo, egg, machaca, etc.). Midmorning or after the lunch rush is a good time to go, check out the food, and relax in the quiet country music atmosphere. Service is simple & straightforward, no great big smiles, hugs or kisses (or large tips), you simply order at the counter & will be called to get your food. Don't let the simple exterior fool you; the inside has pretty good, quiet seating areas.

PLEASE OPEN ON SUNDAYS- PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE even for a short midafternoon/after church while!

Ranchway was one of the first restaurants offering Mexican food that I ate in when I moved here 30 years ago. I was taken there by a friend who knew the family and ate there often. I quickly learned why the place was so popular. The food was great! I went back year after year, sometimes only once a year. My last visit was about 8 months ago. I was very disappointed. The food took an unusually long time to arrive and when it did, it was bland and boring. This is uncharacteristic of Ranchway. As I work in the food service industry, I understand a restaurant having a bad day. Or hiring a chef who's resume was um.... exaggerated. Or vendors delivering something other than what was ordered and is usually used. I'll try Ranchway again. I hope I find the allure that I found so long ago.

If you want the experience of a favorite of locals in Las Cruces, try Ranchway. It is locally owned and family-run. You place your order at the counter with a good selection of burritos, mexican favorites, and melt-in-your-mouth barbeque. The walls are decorated with local photos and visitors with one room dedicated to their support of the Border Book Festival. Very reasonable prices and freshly-made food invite repeat business for locals and travelers searching for good food.

I was introduced to this place by a friend when I moved to Cruces and have been back many times,
I find it odd to have BBQ and Mexican food under one roof and have not tried their BBQ. All their Mexican dishes are excellent at a very reasonable price. Lunch time gets quite crowded and there usually is a long line. Portions are generous. One of these days I get my courage up and try the BBQ and will share my thoughts with you on that. You will not be disappointed with their offerings.
