“Don't be deceived by the building”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2014

This is a great little restaurant! They have fantastic salsa and the burritos and dinners are all very tasty. I wish the dining room was larger and that they were open in the evening. We enjoyed our food very much, but may take out next time, so we don't have to wait for a table.

“Amazing food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 January 2013

Walking into this restaurant is like walking into a relative's house. The staff are so friendly and just like family. The food is amazing as well. Best salsa I've ever tasted! I will visit again soon!

“Little local dive”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2012 via mobile

El Ranchito doesn't look like much from the street, but it's an okay place to stop if you want a breakfast burrito. The food is made to order, so you might have to wait a little while... And there's really not much seating space (as you can see by just looking at the building). It you don't mind a little wait and a lack of space/atmosphere it's worth a try... The food is definitely the best part.

“Very Disappointed”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2012

I sat close enough to the kitchen to notice alot of their food is caned and that the tortillas are also packaged and not homemade. I'm sorry but I just think that in a small mexican restaurant like that, more of an effort should be made to make the food more authentic. Also for the price save your money and visit Montelongo's. Or Rosa's Cafe for that matter, at least they make their tortillas fresh there.
