The Ranchero Restaurant in Pasadena is a great place to relax. They have really good Margaritas and fine traditional Mexican food. Nothing Fancy, but consistent flavorful dishes. Enchiladas, tacos, Burritos ? of course but try the Pipian Ranchero, or tostadas, and the chicken mole mmmm. Oh, and keep count of the margaritas they are muy fuerte!!

I had the chicken enchilada with mole sauce. Very good! Everything tasted fresh and the service was fine. Parking is in a lot next door or on the street. My friend has been going there for years and said the food is always good.

I have had lunch at this restaurant several times this past year. Everyone is always very friendly and service is excellent. The Mexican food is good. The salsa is sometimes pretty spicy. A good place to have lunch with friends.

My wife and I have been going to Ranchero's a couple of times a month for twenty years. The margaritas are famous in the area. The food is typical of a mexican restaurant. We always get great service.
