“Above average”
Reviewed 24 July 2013

This Mexican restaurant is not on the main street in Brevard which at times can be a very good thing. Other restaurants we have visited on the main street tend to be busy and the wait can be long. We were quickly seated at El Ranchero and the staff was very friendly. The menu is better than typical with lots of choices. I would recommend the fajitas burrito. Salsa and chips were really good. We ate outside and really enjoyed the afternoon and the food. The only complaint I had was the terrible piece of tomato that was on top of my chicken tostada.

“Slow Service and definitely not the best out of the three”
Reviewed 19 April 2013

I enjoyed it here but I would say it's not the best place to have latin cuisine. It was okay. Things could have been better but it was okay. Hope to see some improvement next time I stop in.
