Pretty much everything is excellent. They have consistently great salsa and guacamole, and the prices are definitely affordable. The only complaint I have is the fish tacos. They used to use really good fish (I believe it was cod, but whatever it was, it was excellent) but a few years back they changed to what I assume is tilapia or... More

This is my favorite local Taqueria. In the recent year their prices increased by $1 a burrito. Where we used to be weekly regulars for either pollo asado or carne asada burritos, we've had to cut back since the increase. Still, it is very good food & I've never been disappointed in their flavors or portions. Note that their el... More

The food is awesome here and very good prices! My favorites are taquitos/guacamole, flautas or the super nachos/super fries. Superb mexican food!

They have a great fish taco here. This is the only place in town that I really feel like I'm getting good quality fish in my taco. The price is good and the atmosphere is very casual. Nice place to stop in while working or with family after a long day.

They are very clean and friendly. The food is very good as well. The prices are reasonable, similar to those of farmer boys. This is my favorite place to eat! There is a lot of variety! I cannot just recommend one thing. Everything is delicious!!

Family owned chain. Food is terrific, prices very reasonable, 99 cent tacos on Tuesdays are incredible, and the shop is exceptionally clean. The only drawback (and it's a minor one) is that El Ranchito accepts cash only. They do have an ATM for convenience, though. Great place for families, too. Oh, and if you like menudo, they serve it on... More

As taco shops go this is a good place for food in a comfortable place. The counter service is usually very friendly too. The recession has had an impact on things here. They now charge for chips in a tray instead of comping them as they did for years. Their salsa bar is pretty decent. If you are in the... More
