What an amazing start to the evening with a large shrimp cocktail and michelada that was so filling and absolutely delicious. The staff was great and service was prompt and very helpful.

Was a little unsure that Mexican food in the South would taste all right but this place serves it up well. I enjoyed a burrito as well as some guacamole and it was yummo! Will definitely stop in again my next time in Daphne.

Went here for lunch. Ordered the lunch enchiladas and they were nice enough to substitute the red sauce for the green sauce for me, as well as making the enchiladas one beef and one chicken. The taste was awesome. It's authentic and fresh and portion for lunch was great. Also the best rice and beans I've eaten. Waiter was polite,... More

First of all the salsa they served with the chips was amazing! We ordered the chicken and steak fajitas and they were excellent! The tortillas were fresh and the peppers, onions and meat were cooked to perfection. The serving size was enough to have a good sized leftover meal for another day, which I love!

We were looking for a Mexican restaurant after spending all day in the sun, and we were not that impressed by El Rancho. Food came extremely quick, portions were huge but neither dish was very flavorful. Not sure we would consider eating here again if we were back in the area, and definitely nothing we will rave about to our... More

Had lunch here and were surprised that the lunch menu had gone up in price. Took a while to place the order, but once done food came quickly. The cheese sauce was so watery it was almost drinkable. Chips were a little hard. Salsa was ok. Probably won't return.

We ate at El Rancho in Daphne, AL because it was right around the corner from our motel. The house margarita was good, the was average mexican fare. Not bad but by no means exceptional.
