After buffet dinner every night and 4 separate trips down 5 th Ave we were looking for a place to have a special dinner out on the town! We had a drink at most of the the hot spots along the way but the atmosphere of Los Rancheros kept pulling us back. This was no disappointment, the food was incredible,... More

We ran in to Los Rancheros on a rainy afternoon, the waiter recommended a Mexican mixed plater which had everything we wanted on it. When it came it wasn't what we really wanted or what the waiter had said. But we hate our meal not great asked for the bill, tax was added to the bill this wasn't done on... More

The food was wonderful. I highly recommend the Margaritas. I have had Margaritas at many of the local establishments throughout my visit but, hands down, do believe the Margaritas at Los Rancheros were the best overall. Did I mention that the food was great too.

We stopped by here during one of the day trips. I wouldn’t recommend it as I barely ate. I simply just had tacos, nothing else to compliment the dish. I only enjoyed watching the server bring out my drink on top of their head. Wonder what happens if it falls over, LOL! for more review check out my blog!

We had cocktails and appetisers (prawn cocktail and calarmarie) and we were brought out tortilla chips with various dips which were very nice. We were there early evening up on the first floor watching afternoon turn into evening with a brilliant singer which gave a lovely Mexican ambiance and Candido made it a very special evening for us finishing off...

I went here with about 12 of my friends as we were on our high school senior trip. They totally took advantage of us because we were young, but I know what's up. I must say, the food was pretty good and our waiter was very nice. They carry the drinks on top of their heads and we had a... More

Do not let edgy dia de los muertos decorating fool you...there is nothing edgy about this run-of-the-mill restaurant. As soon as we told our waiter that we were only interested in some heavy appetizers, our experience went downhill... The quacamole prepared table-side had about as much character as a glass of water with a side of saltine crackers. We also... More

My boyfriend and I were spending a week in Cancun and decided to visit Playa Del Carmen for a day. We happen to stumble across a quiet restaurant, located at the top of a building on the strip of 5th Ave. All of the people were very friendly, from the server to the singer. The authentic Mexican food was amazing... More
